Can’t decide whether to move to France, Germany, or the Netherlands? Try Belgium and get all three in one! The country is made of three distinct regions that mirror characteristics of those countries, including speaking French, German, and Dutch. (English is also spoken in all three). If that’s not enough European variety, the small, picturesque nation is also an easy hub for jaunts across Western and Northern Europe. Despite high rents, most people live in urban areas where they can enjoy lingering over world-class beers, chocolates, and pastries (including those famous waffles!). Talk to your tax attorney before you make the move—rates are high and hard to avoid. You’ll appreciate the contributions, though, when you need the education or healthcare systems.
