Anyone enjoyed a place so much as a tourist they decided to move there?

Anyone enjoyed a place so much as a tourist they decided to move there?

For me it was Barcelona.

Travelled around all Europe and parts of every other continent (barring Antarctica, if that counts).

Visited places with amazing scenery, places with incredibly cheap cost of living, beautiful women, but eventually settled on here as the perfect middle ground for quality of life, weather, income, lifestyle and everything else.

I loved coming here so much as a tourist, I decided to pack my bags, leave my parents basement and make a living in BCN. Don’t see myself returning anytime soon.

Anyone else had a similar experience?

    yes, a lot of people have had that experience. some regret it. Needless to say, living in a city is quite different from visiting it. In any case, from your vague description it seems you're already on the train to Catalonia, so good luck.

        It’s le big apple teehee, mostly normalgays that like to chitchat with ither normalgays. So when they feel that there’s a large herd, they love it. It’s like why normies love it when a place gets ruined by overtourism. They simply love crowds.

        . That can't be good right.

        The simple answer of why people like New York is because there is a buzz which almost no other city in the world has. There is always stuff going on and at any moment literally anything can happen which is very exciting. Not to mention it is the culture capital of the western hemisphere.

        I was born here in NYC but could never bring myself to spend my own money on a place there. My siblings just can't get enough of it and cheerfully pay $4500 for a 1bd in central park west or a 2bd in Williamsburg. I just ride the train back 1hr to my beautiful colonial north of the city surrounded by trees for $2500 to the mortgage israelite. I see both sides of the coin. As a city NYC is objectively a shit hole dumpster fire of failing infrastructure, apathetic incompetent fat hispanic cops who stand idly by while crackheads scream in my face that they're going to kill me in midtown Manhattan, oppressive taxes, and awful transit options. People who love NYC so much must never have been to Singapore or Tokyo or anywhere else where things actually run on time, people feel safe, and insane people aren't just left to roam the streets and assault people. And to think you pay $4-5k a month for the privilege

        On the other hand, if you get off of Manhattan and go further afield in Brooklyn or Queens you can actually find pretty much any variety of food, entertainment, nightlife or social scene in the world bar-none, and you can get an OK deal if you know how. For people that love NYC it's like a sport to constantly search out the places that are good, cheap, and relatively quiet before the word gets out and it invariably becomes mobbed until they jack up prices, then inevitably go under after the hype wears off and they've forgotten how to run a lean business. If you're a creature of habit that likes to become a regular anywhere you'll fricking hate NYC because every cozy chill place you fall in love with will follow this cycle. If you're a turbo ADD mfer who always needs to seek out something new you'll love it. The only other case for NYC is if you liked an obscure band in the 2000s and they decide to do a reunion tour, you're SOL if you live in Ohio. You can almost guarantee that any band doing a US tour will come to NYC, so that's cool I guess.

          If you like city life at all, New York is indisputably the best city in the U.S. Only a handful of other cities even come close but they all have major drawbacks. So it just really is that simple. If you like the city, you’ll like New York.

      How did you move there? Immigration to the US (legally, for white people) is a nightmare. I've been signed up in the H-1B lottery every year for the last three years and still haven't been selected. Millions of pajeets are overwhelming the system and screwing it up for everyone else.

            Seriously "spanish" food is incredibly overrated.
            They're extremely proud of what amounts to a piece of squid on bread with oil on it. Wow.
            I really think their cuisine is intended to go along with cigarettes and alcohol more than eaten by itself. Their national dishes are extremely mid, rice with some shit in it, wow, especially for how much they gloat about it.

              Italians have everything far superior to Spanish. Any dish you will find in Spain, there exists a superior version of it in Italy. But you will never encounter the opposite. Spain is like a poor-man's version of Italy culturally speaking and the people in general just give off a bigger gypsy vibe than Italians. Even their neighbours Portuguese are much more tolerable.

    Yeah the Philippines. Nowhere else in the world I ever visited has such plentiful, cheap and easy access to women with such relaxed culture towards birth control and condom use.

    I'm a hard-core sex addict but working my ass off to afford chasing tail in the west was killing me. I can have that lifestyle for 1/10th the cost in PH.

    Everybody in the country is an irresponsible moron, so I fit right in.

      Very different. Cooming is an organized business in Thailand, but in the Philippines it's a pastime for bored pinays.

    New Orleans.
    Southern comfort, Whiskey/bourbon in excess, good music, night life pretty much year round, and good food. It's a cozy city for an American city, coming from Kansas City, I couldn't imagine going back.
    I work a government job and get pretty decent quality of life for LA, and as far as joggers are concerned, just use two braincells and don't bother them.
    For the humidity, I tend to travel up back home in Iowa for the dogdays since I have 4 day weekends. It really is rough here when it's hot, but it peaks for a month at most before getting cozy again.

All because I’m not some dork homosexual and instead of learning moronic coding homosexualry during my youth I actually enjoyed my life, partied, and got pussy

    I have never met more annoying people than Catalans. Pretentious, self-aggrandizing idiots. Nobody gives a shit about your little shithole yet they act like Catalonia was some kind of cultural superpower for hundreds of years. At the same time while they want you to respect their shit identity they manage to be completely ignorant and disinterested about anything outside of their little shithole. In foreign countries they continue to act like self-aggrandizing c**ts (although this goes for Spanish people in general, Catalans are just the worst about this) with their favourite combination of both being a victim and superior at the same time. Their shit indebted football club is a nice representation with the bullshit tiki taka kaka, the annoying fanbase, that flaming homosexual Guardiola and the combination of considering themselves as something special and superior yet constantly crying and whining. Frick Barcelona and frick its people.
