    I live in the UK and when I'm 16 I'm free to legally move to any other country in the EU and work without any visa or paperwork, just go.

    So, where should I move, suggest.


    Also, if it ****s up, I've got a welfare state and parents to come crawling back to, so not to worry.

    I was thinking about an eastern european country, Poland or Slovenia came to mind.

    Is it possible to make enough money to have a relitively comfortable lifestyle in Eastern European countries?

    I think you need to sit down and have a serious thought for a minute.

    1. You ae only 16.
    2. Can you speak those languages? i.e can you speak Polish fluently? Can you speak Romanian fluently?
    3. There are Romanians and Polish flocking to the UK for a reason. People cannot get jobs over there. You do not have a welfare state and parents to come home too, that alone tells me you arent ready to move country to work.. the welfare system is barely enough to buy a loaf of bread and its not fair on your parents to split to another country then come back crying when you cant get a job.
    4. The EU is not an easy ticket to another country to work. In the UK its suprisingly hard to get into the welfare system, in other countries its even harder.

    Wait untill you are older then think abou that sort of stuff, you are only 16, not 20. Its great that you want independance and all that, but wait untill you are older. I wanted to move to another country when I was 16 and theres no way looking back I would have been ready for that, and I'm 20 now living away from home.

    I know all the Eastern European buggers are over here, but I'll try and make it in their countries!
    Don't you need parental consent if you're under 18?

    Malta and Cyprus are probably the best bet for the monoglot Brit who's looking for somewhere to arse around.

    Well bloody Norway then! That's rather vital information if you're wanting people to make an informed recommendation.

    Have you been to everywhere in the UK? If you're that desperate for independence, move to a different county. Or go to Wales or Scotland or something. I agree that simply upping sticks to a different country is rather rash - go for a month's holiday and work in a hostel or something, then you'll probably realise it's harder than just going and living on your own.
