Do you have advice for someone trying to move to Europe now?
Since I don't know your circumstances, it's hard to say. Plan well, and have a back up plan. Getting a job, of course, requires all kinds of permits, so unless you have a big savings, there's that. If you have some indispensable skill it is a lot easier. Living in Italy, which is the place I know, is easy and stimulating and fun and healthy. You are outside more, walk more, eat well, laugh a lot. My books tell what I know about living there.
