Two expat members recently commented they planned never to return to their home country. Curious how many here feel the same way? Follow up, who thinks of Philippines as home and their country of origin as just that?

Cost of living is probably the biggest issue

The issue I am struggling with is my family and friends I will be leaving behind on Oahu, especially my mom who just turned 80 this year.  Leaving her will put a huge burden on my conscience.

My home is here. The UK I would never consider living in again.

Well I won't be staying permanent any time soon. I've got 2 kids stateside to finish raising. But who knows in 20 years?

My Dad who lived with us many years passed about a year ago so I think I know how you feel. How many hours to fly back and visit your Mother?
