Have you considered the major technological issues associated with going off to live on Europa?

For example, Amazon has no current plans for delivery there and if you try to watch any Netflix content you’ll likely get a message saying “this content is unavailable in your region” not to mention that because of the great distance from Earth you’ll always be a couple of hours behind everyone else binge-watching the latest must-see series so they will know who killed/bedded/abandoned whom 120 minutes before you do!
