24 sites to get your residency or retreat

I have a habit of spending the end of each vacation scheming the next calendar opportunity. So it was that by the new year I had planned a third of my yet-to-be summer. I was looking for a place to play, rest, be a student, and develop my skills.  There are so many opportunities out there.Here are some interesting sites to check out.
I just wanted to share.
Good Luck- Tilly
