    Barkley's of England is partner with Bank of America. You keep your money in the states bank, and use your card without extra charges for cash in Cyprus. Do a house share...people there want cash. You get the joy of living in a nice place and just exchange hard currency which they want, although you might have to fight off the advances of older ladies. You know why...Ditch the car payment, which saves you money...just get a moped or scooter. Its sunny there! Go to school for a month and with a school like Oxford Seminars and get your teach English as Foreign Language certification. They will even help you with the resume and line you up with jobs. Lastly, have your SSN money planned for direct deposit to Bank of America in the states, then draw on it richly in Cyprus. But for you I am sure that is a way away. You seem pretty young...but forgive me if I have that wrong. I have some other ideas, but that should suffice for now. Just things I have learned from my own experience and other expats abroad. Oh, and take with you a passion. You're American...you're exotic in that extreme..and if you have a little business sense...selling even very much wanted American Major League baseball caps brings in a bundle. Live your dream. Be afraid...and love it!

    I've heard that if you go there they don't let you leave. At first you are frightened by this, but eventually you start to sympathize with the place, and some even fall in love. Weird.

    Because they're collectivists. Individuality, privacy and freedom are things they don't put high on their list of wants or needs.

    I was in Stockholm a few years ago. I thought it was a great city. We were having a meeting downtown in a three story complex. The windows were open (it was late May), and right across the street, there was a park where we could hear families playing and dogs barking. It certainly was more pleasant than meeting in the enclosed towers of New York.

    My favourite cities in Europe are

    Edinburgh
    Paris
    Rome
    Dubrovnik

    But the European city that will always have my heart is London.
