what is this?

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go? I was having a tough time deciding where I wanted to move to and get a job after graduating university. I'd seen so many interesting stories of life in so many cool places scattered all across the internet that I decided to try to build one website dedicated to gathering together as much of our collective knowledge about living in different cities and countries as possible.

It's my dream that istorical will be a place where you can read about, explore, and discuss the real depth and breadth of the geographical diversity of social life and culture on Earth. This site is an attempt to begin to answer the questions I've had, and as it evolves I hope it offers insight to others like myself who seek to learn from the experiences of others who've dared to buy a one way ticket to a new destination.

who are you?

You might be asking yourself, who is this fresh-faced developer with his heart on his sleeve, the world in his eyes, and a chip on his shoulder? I'm a web / software developer about to begin the digital nomad life, starting in Europe. More soon.
