Hello everyone,
It turned out that I am allergic to temperature extremes and my doctor advises relocating to a milder climate. For example, the Mediterranean. However, I am also considering wintering in Asia or another place with stable temperatures or even living there half of the year. I have a three-year-old son, so there is a question about kindergartens and schools if wintering. I am more prone to wintering because relocating to Spain or Cyprus from Ukraine is a bit challenging and I don't want to leave my whole life behind.

I was hoping to find someone with related experience. Is it possible to organize comfortable wintering with a child? How to manage education? What regions to consider? Thanks for the advice and have a good day :)

Hello, Helen! ;) According to the UN-administered «Survey on Climate Change Perceptions in Ukraine» (2009), the climate of the Black Sea coast of Ukraine is moderate and mild enough. It is close to the Mediterranean climate, especially in Odessa, where they boast of having 250 sunny days a year. However, the weather can be unstable with frequent fluctuations of temperature.
It’s true the ecological situation leaves much to be desired.
I would say this website is more like a platform for an exchange of travelling experiences; therefore it is not easy to find a person corresponding to your inquiry, especially in this coronavirus age. Good luck!

Many countries do not want foreigners coming to their country and taking jobs away from the local citizens. Getting a job without proper work permits could be a problem. If you are wealthy and can live off your savings you still may have a problem finding a visa that allows you and your child to stay as long as you need.

For you, Asia will probably be a lot more different to you than somewhere closer to where you live now!

With this virus thing still going on, if you could even visit as a tourist, you may have a quarantine period to go through before being released into the general population.

Up to you.
