I just finished working on a project in Macau and I really had a great few months there. I like working there because my family in Hong Kong was only a short ferry ride away. I like that I didn't have to drive everywhere because fantastic dining, shopping, entertainment and amazing healthcare facilities were all within walking distance. I lived in several hotels and they were all much newer, nicer hotels with much better customer service than any of the hotels in the USA I had stayed.
Now that I'm back, I have to get used to driving everywhere again, and getting used to doing my laundry again. I can't wait for another project that sends me overseas again. I realize I enjoy living in a stress free hotel more than my apartment which is constantly having one water leak after another, asbesto ceiling issue (which my landlord agrees to fix after my testing turns out to be positive but I just don't have time to move out for the fix, moving everything out of the apartment is just too daunting), electrical blackouts, etc, etc...All the repairs are tiring me out even though I don't have to pay for it. This is why I'd rather escape through working overseas, leaving behind my stuff inside my apartment, underneath the asbestos popcorn ceilings. The thought of packing everything and moving them to the storage for asbestos ceiling removal is too overwhelming.
