5 good reasons for living in Micronesia


if someone asks you the best reasons for making the choice to live and stay in Micronesia, what would be your top 5?

Thanks in advance for participating,



Top 5 reasons why – in that order:

1 – It's a crazy place, there is always something that'll happen to you.

2 - It's an untamed land, a wild frontier of the world: setting the bar for outdoor adventure is entirely up you.

3- It's living in HD, Micronesia is a where the views defy the unreal fantasies in your wildest dreams, there is no coming back. 

4 - It's about as far as isolation goes, the accessible end of remote, for starting over or just for the challenge, it's a hell of a voyage.

5 – It's tropical, the food is tropical, and the weather is tropical, and it rains a lot.

Top 5 why not – not necessarily in this order:

1 – It's far, it's small, even tiny and you are your own source of entertainment, two words: Island fever.

2 – It's slow, time stands still, there is never a need to hurry but it can be excruciating.

3 – It's expensive, everything is just as or more expensive than where you came from, and generally a lot of things are hard to come by. 

4 – It's a full time hassle, if you don't take life with a smile you'll have a heart attack.

5 – It's the perfect combination of heaven and hell, a utopia and anti-utopia, the social development setting is distressing.

I have a potential job offer at $35,000 a year salary in Micronesia. Is it enough to cover my living and housing or Medical costs? It is a Govt job.
