Top 16 Places Where We’d Live for 3 Months

Posted By Trav

When it comes to traveling the world, there aren’t many places we WOULDN’T want to go. 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 @PackofPeanuts!

    You said you were looking for Central America recommendations. I went to Nicaragua in January and loved the beach town of San Juan del Sur on the Pacific Ocean. Great sunsets and restaurants and not crowded at all. Kind of has a crazy hostel party scene (google Sunday Funday) but is a great place even if that’s not your thing. Day passes can be bought at the nicer resorts.

      @Shan – Great suggestions! You are the second person to recommend San Juan Del Sur, so we’ll certainly take a look at it. And I’m sure we can find a place a little off the beaten path that isn’t so party heavy (although I wouldn’t mind sneaking that in a bit here and there, in between babysitting)!

  2. Hey Guys! Love your podcast! It helps me with my wanderlust until the next time I can getaway. I especially love the lists episodes, as I am an avid list-taker as well. Just wanted to comment on the Italy issue with WiFi. I was a bit confused by that, because I was living in a small town in the middle of Tuscany from 2013-2016 and had better WiFi than I get in the States for about half the cost. That is me promoting one of my favorite places in the world. :) Thanks guys and keep it up!

    1. Trav says:

      @Sarah Morrison – First off, thanks for the amazingly kind words, and glad there is another “list nerd” out there! I can’t believe that about Tuscany, that’s incredible. Seriously, I’ve always said that if I could get good wifi in Italy, I’d consider spending A LOT more time there. Was it a certain company we should be on the lookout for? Tell us your secrets!
