I really think you will regret it if you don't... once in a lifetime opportunity..
PLUS: you know you will have more visitors than you want

If you are TOTALLY against it though just tell him it's not for you and he will have to deal.
I think at this point, I'm 50/50. I think it my family said go for it, i'd do it.. I need to know they're totally behind me. Greg wants to go down there around March for a long weekend and meet with realtors. I want a house, he wants an apt lol

As far as your friends and family go... I'm sure you won't have to twist their arms too hard for them to come and visit you. I have a huge family and a great group of friends back home in Texas, and I was torn like you when I moved up to NYC. I promise you, it's not going to be as bad as you think. You'll still talk to them all the time. I have to admit, it was hard the first couple of months, but now it's like I don't even think about it. Maybe it's because we're planning on moving back down there in a few years, but still.
YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GO!!!!!

Anyway, I'm rambling. I would go for it. I LOVE traveling and moving around. It's always nice to put yourself int different environments and get out of Jersey!

Tom and I have talked about movin to Costa Rica for good once we can afford to not work.
It's only for a year and I think you would soon agree that it IS the opportunity of a lifetime.
Plus, if flights are affordable - I guarantee you'll have visitors!

I think it is a fantastic opportunity and it will force you to slow down.
A year isn't very long in the grand scheme of things. By having the internet, phone, etc. you can stay connected with your family pretty easily.
You could find a job at a resort spa, I'm sure.
If you do some research before hand, look into jobs, housing, flight schedules, etc. you will prolly (thanks Abbie!) feel much more comfortable.
Have you talked to you family about this yet?

One year is really not that long at all. Think about what you were doing one year ago, I bet it feels like yesterday! And like somebody else said, if you hate it, you can just come back.
I'm so excited for you! Definitely talk to your family about it - this is the chance of a lifetime!

I am a big planner and scared of doing this but if we don't I know we will regret it.
