Why would you want to live as an expat in XYZ country? Cheaper cost of living mainly, right?

Wrong. Sad to say you are exhibiting a serious lack of imagination.

I have loved being immersed in other cultures, taking an apartment, shopping at food stores and seeing what daily life is like for a local. One of the things it has taught me is that warts and all, living in the USA is pretty great. Don't think I would ever fully leave it, but I am up for adventures overseas that extend way past a tourist visa.

I confess my preference for travel has never been the "If it's Tuesday it Must be Belgium" method of a day or two to see a whole country, nor the modern day approach to that which seems to be your favorite mode of 3-6 months in one place is much preferred.
