Eurofag here with a dual citizenship with the United States. I have visited on vacations plenty of times but never actually lived there for any significant period of time. I am thinking of getting use out of my passport by living in America for a year or two to experience it and enjoy the much higher salaries on offer in Tech, before settling down in my home country.
I work as a Data Engineer and there are plenty of jobs going in that field in America so I don't think job prospects will have to play a very heavy role in my decision making.
Is there anywhere you would reccomend that isn't badly over run with undesirables? The very North Eastern parts of new England, and Nevada/Eastern Oregon and Washington look pretty good, and the scenery looks great for camping/hiking. I am not that pushed on focusing on the big cities, but maybe if I am only going for a shorter timeframe, then that is what I should be focusing on. I lived in New York for a summer once on an internship so I'd prefer somewhere different to that.
Any location reccomendations?
