I am selling up in a couple of years and traveling the world - or bits of it - before I get too crinkly, wrinkly and cranky.
My current intention is to spend 3 months in Australia either as I start my trip from the USA or at the end..... I'll need to find a flat or house to rent - any suggestions? I could go to NZ too.... have friends in Auckland but don't think I want to live there. My ideal would be to live for a few months in any of the countries I arrive in, staying in not too large a town. I'd like to at least feel I'm living in a country rather than just being a tourist. Someone has mentioned Laos to me too - but I haven't had a chance to check into that yet.
The USA doesn't have very good mobile/cell phones for those of us who want to use them overseas - any suggestions on getting a cell phone that'll work in various parts of the world?
As you can see, I'm at the very beginning of my research, so any advice will be most welcome,
