Would you accept a gift of free travel (incl. lodging and food) for you and a companion for life if it required that you not spend more than a year total in any single country?

As long as I can bring my dogs and husband, and not have to pay for anything? Yes!! Adventures are great, but for the rest of my life? Idk if moving more than once in a year when I'm 80+ would be healthy anymore , but hey I'm only 22

as in I can never return there? no if I can come back after awhile then yes

11/27/11 3:30 pm

Most other countries have Nazi-like gun laws, so I would have to decline.

If the limit on being in any one country more than a year total, ever, excluded the United States, I'd say yes. But I can't give up home and be forced to move somewhere new every year.

11/26/11 4:02 pm

That would be my dream !

11/26/11 10:23 am

Do I have to use it right away?

Besides, I joined the army, saw the world, got shot at, and shot back with better accuracy. I'm good on the whole "world travel" scene. I KNOW there are countries I'd rather never visit again.

11/26/11 9:25 am

Eventually you're going to be left with some pretty run-down or war-torn countries as your only options left.

11/26/11 9:18 am

I like it how Hawaii is the only state that said no

11/25/11 7:28 pm

Whoa. Hard one. I'm not sure I would. I need roots.

I would have no problem with this. At. All.

11/25/11 10:37 am

It sounds to good to be true, so no

11/25/11 5:03 am

That's an interesting idea. If it was no more than a year, period, then no, but if it was no more than a consecutive year, maybe.

11/24/11 11:10 pm

interesting, should be flattered at the name copying?

11/24/11 9:26 pm

That kind of a lifestyle would be fun for a while, but I know I'd want to settle down once I have kids. It'd be really hard for them to go to a new school every year.

why not!? there are many different countries to see

hick ass unprogressive West Virginia. go figure.

11/24/11 1:35 pm

What a way to see the world! But, could I give it back after a decade or two? It may eventually get old.

11/24/11 12:19 pm

it would be fun but I'm a hone body. I like my roots. I'd give it to my younger sister, she wants to see the world

11/24/11 12:05 pm

Geoag02 the question says you would be fully covered financial wise

11/24/11 11:55 am

Your home would be the world. Open your minds, people.

11/24/11 10:55 am

I'd prefer no more than five years. England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, France, Germany, I could get used to that.

@USNavyVet - Are you really such a closed minded curmudgeon that you use terms like "Stupid" and "Assinine" for opinions that differ from your's? We have a talk with our pre-teenage daughter when she displays attitudes like that.

11/24/11 10:47 am

you would have to give up living in the USA! No Deal!

As long as my homeland is not part of the package. The wording isn't clear. I'd like to spend a month in each state too.

11/24/11 7:32 am

I love my family, friends, and neighbors too much for that.

11/24/11 6:39 am

YES! Me and my imaginative wife will travel everywhere from antarctica to the north pole. Then china all across west to hawaii. Then we do it again until we die.

Geoag, that cruise ship idea is genius! Now I have a new dream to fantasize about for when my husband and I retire.

If money were no object, heck yes! the only thing that would make me hesitate would be that I have a husband and a son. if it were for three I'd home-school my boy and we'd be on the next plane.

No more than a year total? Wow. Imagine where you'd end up after a few decades.... No thanks.

It would be like being an exchange student for the rest of your life. I answered yes, but as I re-read the question, I'm rethinking my answer. I could split my time between a bunch of countries, but I'd need to have a country or two where I could call home, if only for 6 months of each year.

Can I stay in my home country for more than a month total? I would never mind being away for the rest of the year, but the holidays will add up after awhile

11/24/11 1:59 am

Sign me up.

I'm already in England and the conversion rate is a killer.

Not enough "good" countries and I'm not all that up to trying all their food nor adapting to the lifestyle. It's a great opportunity for some but not for me.

You would have to be rolling in money to do that though, and I am not. :(

I always thought it would be awesome to rent an apartment in a cruise ship. Then you have familiar "home" surroundings that are in a different city every couple of days. And if you want to stay in one city longer than the boat you can always get a one way airline ticket to the next port.

11/23/11 11:46 pm

I answered yes only because I would like to see other parts of the world and yes that means the places some may find undesirable. The question also does not say you have to give up citizenship and stay on the move. There is a way to do this for those who wish and that is called join the military.

11/23/11 11:43 pm

I'd say yes if you could have a max of 25 years in a country. I'd never put my kids through moving to a different COUNTRY once a year. And, since I'm only 16, I'd have a good 65 countries to visit. That eventually puts me into some unstable areas. So, I have to vote no here.

Throw in a job as a US diplomat and I'd be all over that.

11/23/11 10:48 pm

Some stability would be nice, but I'd love to travel the world.

matters what would happen i deserted. if i was kille for it, then no. but if they would just forget me, then heck yea! i feel like it would get old after a while.

I prefer to work and feel like I'm contributing to the world around me, I think the travel would be exciting for a while, but after a bit it's community and a settled life of productive work that's truly satisfying.

I enjoy traveling but there's nothing better than coming home. I'd do it for a while but not for life
