Scandinavia, somewhere. Religion is a joke, there has been no armed conflicts there for centuries and the nature is wonderful.

Most likely Sweden because I'm familiar with it. But I like America as it is.

been there, done that. spent 10 years in japan. i'd like to try france, but it's not going to happen.


genessa Level 8 Sep 10, 2018

Any of the Scandinavian countries, I will also add the Netherlands.

gsiamne Level 7 Aug 11, 2018

20 years ago I would've said the UK. Now, probably southern Spain.

Yes, Seriously.

The UK

Panama and why not??

Australia is my first choice. Germany is a very, very close second.


Geneva, Switzerland.

For me it would be Belize, not crowded, they speak English, in the Tropics, great people and diverse.

I would become a hermit curmudgeon somewhere warm.

Return to Kenya ??. Or maybe some other African country.


return to China...


I believe I could live anywhere.

brownH50 Level 6 July 26, 2018

Although I am half Japanese, and I love Japan to visit, I would not go there to live. I would go to Panama or Spain...I do speak Spanish...and I like warm weather...I have looked at the immigration policies of other countries and could go to many of them since I would not be a drain on them and have certain required skills, but, to be honest, I have lived everywhere and I love the USA the best. I am staying and fighting for us until the very end.

@OlderMusicGeek It would be so easy for me to just sit back and enjoy my retirement in utter bliss and comfort but the thought of leaving and not helping those who cannot speak for themselves and the younger generation makes me sick to my stomach and is not who I am, so yeah, I am staying and fighting for the next group...they better step up to the plate, because if not, I might just leave and say to hell with them...

@OlderMusicGeek I have high hopes that they will indeed pay more attention and get took the Vietnam war for me to be active at that age and we changed our world, so yeah...I support them and will do so as long as I can

@thinktwice I was wondering where everyone would prefer to go.(if suddenly we became a war zone) It is admirable of you to speak up for the young generation by marching, carry a mic, and start talking. Surely there will be a big march soon to impeach Trump. Do you have a country in mind to go live in?

@sweetcharlotte If I truly thought things would get that bad, I would probably go to southern Spain...I have been eyeing that area for some time as a retirement place anyway...but for now, it is PA and then NC...good old USA...


Canada, then New Zealand.

My wife who is Japanese and I who am part Costa Rican and part Cuban born in the USA are planning to move to Japan at some point. Mostly atheist nation, super polite people, state of the art everything, little to no crime, super clean, universal healthcare, etc.

I've lived in Australia and England. It would take a crap tonne of money to make even think of moving to the States. New Zealand would be top of my list. Reasonable social services, gob-smackingly beautiful, Kiwis are good people, I can settle indefinitely on my Australian passport and if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, you're a long way from trouble.


Thinking like a refugee - it has to be a place that would accept me as a permanent resident

  • MOST countries want young, educated people w/ 30 yr of future earnings -- few seem to be willing to accept older, retired people.

English speaking is preferred -- but Spanish as a backup.

  • Canada, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Bermuda would come first
  • Spain, Portugal (yeah, I know, not Spanish speaking... but), France
  • the nordic countries would be socially ideal - but just too cold !!

I haven't found the ideal yet -- but let's keep on looking!

pops410 Level 5 July 26, 2018

Weirdly, Ireland, which is mostly Catholic. Its sheer beauty is what draws me.

Notlost Level 5 July 26, 2018

There are several. The first two on my list are because of proximity and advantages I have in them:

  1. Mexico
  2. Canada
  3. England
  4. Germany
  5. France
  6. Australia

It would probably be one of the progressive, socialist Nordic countries.

Anywhere....seriously ANYWHERE where there isn't a Trump.
