16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

Extra pack of Peanuts Podcast 16 Best Places to Live for 3 Years

You are really digging our “countdown” style podcasts lately so we are giving you another one but this time we are diving into the 16 best places to live for at least 3 years. We aren’t talking about vacations or short-haul stays but living day to day life like a local, embracing the culture fully, & truly settling into the places we discuss in today’s podcast.

This one is a little more high stakes because Trav has a love of buying real estate and so at any point one of these places could become a reality so I (Heather) had to think long and hard about the possible future commitment this episode could be making for me.

We each picked 7-8 places (hello, honorable mentions) where we could live for 3 years and you’ll have to listen to see if we had any places make both lists. Can anyone say moving possibilities?!

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus.

Top 16 Places Where We’d Live for 3 Months

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast Top 16 Places Where We'd Live for 3 Months

When it comes to traveling the world, there aren’t many places we WOULDN’T want to go to. But if we were to put down roots for three months, we’re a bit pickier.

Being location independent has its perks! In this episode, Heather and I discuss the top 16 cities and regions in the world where we’d love to spend three months, and what we love most about each one.

Whether it’s a great place for digital nomads with good internet and a thriving entrepreneurial community, a great beach destination, a hiker’s dream, or just a chill place with a chill vibe, we’re dreaming about where we might move next!

How about you?  If you could be dropped anywhere in the world for 3 months, where would you want to live? Tweet us @ExtraPackofPeanuts!
