"I'm going on a holiday...a very long holiday"

Postby matthewcoury » Mon Sep 29, 2014 12:36 pm

I'm feeling about like Bilbo Baggins now....he is my favorite character out of any book I have ever read....and just remember everyone at happier abroad....you are all adventurers....and women love adventure (at least foreign women haha)....this is what I've decided, what Bilbo says in this clip..."I'm going on a holiday....a very long holiday....and I don't know if I shall return....in fact I mean not to." My name is Matthew Coury....and I'm moving to Bosnia

wow you really have it together businesswise. Im wondering how that happened.

how cheap is the hotels long term? is there hotels you can stay on a monthly rate for low cost? Im not talking about hostels or backpacker type crap im talking about a regular hotel sort of.

Im thinking of doing something along the lines of a Bosnia/romanian/russia/philippines world tour next time i leave the country. but im not sure it wont be for a long time its just fantasizing for now :)

it was kind of chance that it happened.....you can rent an apartment in bosnia in the city of banja luka for $250 USD a month is what my friend mirko was telling me....i staid in a hotel last time, nicest one i've ever staid in......they paid the bill so i dont know how much it was per night.....but you can see obviously cost of living over there is significantly lower.....yeah i mean this isnt a fantasy ive been there before so no reason i cant go back and stay for good.....we do animation and stuff for super cheap, even have a noah's ark puzzle that we're getting into walmart and some christian bookstores here that uses a 3D app on your phone or tablet

thanks guys....i found out because of the extremely cheap cost of living over there that i will be moving much sooner than i had originally anticipated.....i thought i would have to wait for my salary to go up, but i can easily make it over in bosnia for $1000 USD a month....so iam moving there within the next six months rather than a yr to 2 yrs

Good to know the cost of living isn't so high then. That's a great thing about living abroad: money goes a lot farther in many places, especially outside of the major cities.

Oh yeah, that's no problem. You can get a place in the city center of Sarajevo for $250/mo.

The thing to take note of in Bosnia -- and I spent May in Sarajevo -- is that it is now basically three countries after the war, and it might make a difference in personal comfort level whether you are in Muslim, Orthodox or Catholic culture. Or maybe it won't. There will certainly be enough good looking females around, especially if you like the tall, slender dark-haired model. Think Catherine Zeta Jones.

Going on holidays is really a stress buster. Do post your pictures when you return.

Are you thinking of jumping off the famous bridge in Mostar? I am giving it some thought, re next summer possibly.
