I worked abroad for 30 years, almost everywhere I went there were people in my business who had gone on a job and stayed there. I am from UK but even in Russia and Japan there were Brits who never went back. One guy met a girl in a park in Mulheim stayed the night with her and rang his wife next day to say "its over", I met him 5 years later, he was working in the same place in a cardboard recycling centre, he regretted it.It amazes me that people can pack up and move so far away from where they were born. I'm 62, and have always lived within 15 miles of where I was born. I can't imagine moving to a different country. It doesn't help when I'm a pack rat. I love to collect just about everything.
