That is still the plan. We are not rushing, but by the time I am thirty, the plan is to move back. I am 24..turning 25 at the end of the year. So we have given ourself about five years.
I will have completed my undergrad soon, so I think I can get a pretty good job over there if the employment situation was more ideal. (but I'm not counting on that) Frankly, I can't get the job I want over here, so I definetley don't expect it there. I have too many friends that are having trouble without getting additional schooling. That isn't to say that I can't get a good job with a fair wage while sitting on my ass. But I guess that just wouldn't be me.
My brother and I have always wanted to start a restaurant. As Monte points out, we feel there is room to develop in multiple areas. (whether it be dining, entertainment, etc) There are countless cities that can use more development, variety, and jobs. Canada is already highly developed..coming up with a unique concept would be difficult since everything exists..though i guess there is the option of opening the 27th shawarma place on my street.
I would say I'm a pretty independent and adventurous person..so I don't see roadblocks to the plan. I don't plan on having kids (which is a roadblock to many wanting to go back - for me its partly due to my sexuality (though its possible these days..partly because I've never really considered it seriously)
Next few (3 to 5) years will be about hard work and saving up additional money on top of what will get on the house sale.
