What is The Earth Awaits?
The Earth Awaits is a tool for long-term travelers, students taking a gap year, retirees, and anyone else with an irrepressible wanderlust. By providing just a few simple pieces of information, you can find a city that matches your lifestyle and budget. Way more importantly, once you find a city (or cities) that you're interested in, you can edit that budget to suit you perfectly, learn about the city and country, and begin to plan your big escape abroad. The Earth Awaits uses up-to-date cost of living information to give accurate estimates for housing, food, and entertainment budgets in your new home. The data is crowdsourced from those who live or have lived in each city. The cost of living data is updated from Numbeo every night to keep all budget estimates as accurate as possible.
