Recently, I had fun exploring five cozy cities in Washington that remind me of cities in Europe.  (You can read about it here.) I daydreamed that instead of typing away at my office desk in the States, I could be typing away and working remotely from some beautiful locale overseas.

It's time to travel the globe!


A colleague suggested that it would be a fun idea to next explore how much houses cost for the same Washington state price point in European cities that I daydream of visiting someday. 

What a cool idea!
