Now and Zen

There are 195 countries in the world today, more than enough to keep you busy for the rest of your life, likely. And, when the inevitable comes and taps you on the shoulder, suggesting that maybe you should slow down on the quest to see all 195 of them, you might want to think of your Plan B. What are the options? Well, a no-brainer solution is to settle down in a place that matches your own personal vibe. You’ll also want to consider the cost of doing so. Undoubtedly, you’ll want a place that is comfortable, amenable to your lifestyle and, most of all, sustainable: and by that, we mean a place that you can actually live in, not just dwell.

Norway, Switzerland and Iceland are some of the best, when it comes to taking care of its citizens. Colombia, Thailand, Italy, France, Greece and Spain are, as ever, on the list.

But what if you want to get the most for the least? How does living in the countryside and only paying $300/year for rent sound? And, this is no back-water country we’re suggesting: we’re talking about Japan.
