I don't know what you mean, but it had the cadence of a joke.
I would suggest Spain. If not Australia would be cool
I don't really want/need to pick up another language. Everyone speaks 'merican.
That sounds no fun. I don't get why so many Americans are so scared of Learning a second language, it gives you so many more opportunities. Not everyone speaks English (as people like to imagine) and most only have a basic understanding so it kind of gets dull.
I used to speak German fluently. Over the years its been reduced to 'pidgin German' because everyone worth talking to speaks English. I'm not scared to learn another language anymore than I'm scared to change my own oil or clean my own chimney.
On what version of this planet is Sydney/Melbourne to Thailand/Vietnam/Philippines only 2-3 hours less than Sydney/Melbourne to London/Paris/Frankfurt/Madrid (yes, I realize those are not all next to each other)? I'll even give you Turkey, since that's still technically Europe.
Maybe he meant that the flights from Sydney to SE Asia aren't much closer than from East Coast US to Europe. I mean, it's closer from Sydney than from here, but still far enough that you're not going to be going from Sydney to Thailand for the weekend.
Sydney to Thailand is like 9 hours.

I'm moving to Sydney next year - my fiancée is a Sydneysider that came here to study law @ Georgetown.
Australia, gateway to SE Asia, lots to see and do and they are hurting for workers in heavy industry. Six figure salaries like whoa.
Wait, so youre engaged to a smart lawyer with a killer accent? Does she have any sisters?

Correct about Sydney to Bangkok.
Bangkok to, say, Rome or Amsterdam is about 11-12 hours, so only a couple hours longer than a trip to Australia.
Bangkok to Sydney is about the same distance as Bangkok to Istanbul.
Parts of Indonesia are somewhat close to Northern Australia but who's going to be spending time in Darwin?
I'd do NZ. You can visit Ireland anytime in your life (its only 500 bucks-1000 bucks per week), if you needed to. Australia would be my second choice, but NZ appeals to my outdoor/nature likings. If you have the hankering for a big city, you could go to Sydney for a weekend trip or something.
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
So this program I'm looking at gets you a 12 month work visa to do whatever you want in any of these countries. Now, I'd love to find a job related to my major or something that I can put on a resume, but that's a pipe dream. Which of these countries would it be easier for an American to find a job and an apartment in? Cause that's what I'm mostly worried about right now.
This is the site:
BUNAC USA offer a wide range of work abroad, intern, and gap year abroad opportunities at low prices. Browse our range of work and travel programmes.

NZ and its only close to Australia.
Ireland is fun, but you can go there anytime. Who wants dark and dreary when you can have surf and sand?
I'd go with Australia and specifically Melbourne. Just like the vibe there. Cool people and a lot of stuff to do. Go Magpies. As for job prospects I'm not sure. I do know minimum wage on Australia is between $16 and $20. It is expensive as others have stated and I don't know about hiring difficulty. I think the Irish economy is still struggling. It is cheaper to live there though.
Darwin's not so bad in the dry season. No way I'd want to live there but there's some really cool outdoor stuff to see in that general area. Also a lot of feral bogans.
From anecdotal experience, a lot of young people in Australia take a year or two after high school or college and just do nothing because the government lets them do that. So you might be able to take advantage of that by finding a decent job that would be otherwise be filled by the people taking two years to go surfing.
Australian bitches love American guys, right? Anyone know if Irish girls like American dudes?
No. Australian women hate the American "accent" or lack thereof.
You'll have plenty of time to chose your location based on job stuff when you get older. For now, chose based on where is the cooler place to live. And if you chose a place with a worse climate than you are already in, you're doing it wrong.
My experience is that Australians are very neutral about anyone's nationality. They're extremely laid back, detest pretentiousness, and tend to view everyone as equals. Also, they have been inundated with American television. I wouldn't expect Australian women to favor Americans one way or the other

I found that to be quite the opposite, but who knows considering the sample size?
Chicks in Ireland are easy kills for Americans.
Of the 3, I've only been to Australia and it was a short visit. I've been to England but not Ireland. You are looking at 3 great places. I'd choose New Zealand. The natural beauty of that country is off the hook- VERY FEW (if any) places can touch New Zealand for hiking, snow boarding, mountain biking, mountaineering, boating, etc. Sure sitting on the Gold Coast sucking down cold brews and ogling women has its place, but it won't change you from boy to man.
You need to get out in the great outdoors and get in touch with nature and your inner zen. Take a risk. Don't be a nit wit.
