I am an american and i spent a decade in japan, but if i could live anywhere in the world right now, i might choose france. ideally i'd like to have my own island, something temperate, but that's not going to happen!

Still haven’t seen most of the world....but outside the US, my first pick would still probably end up being in North America: Vancouver/environs.

1

Florence. The epicentre of the Renaissnce

1

Japan or Australia.

1

Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, austria, Belgium...just far away from the US. If I thought I could do it I'd move north to Canada and thumb my nose the 'States. Living standards, outlook of all those other places far outdo the US. Wish I'd seriously thought of moving years ago.

1

Sweden sounds good but I ma living somewhere that isn't my homeland -Northern ireland.

3

New Zealand would probably be my pick for the Sputhern hemisphere, but for the Northern hemisphere, the Netherlands/Denmark would do nicely. A visit to Europe is definitely on the bucket list.

2

The island of Chios in Geecce

4

Denmark, Sweden, Finland would be on the top of my list. As a civil engineer, I am appalled at the state of our infrastructure (USA). Roads, bridges, etc. We just don't take good care of what we have.

1

Lots of good plastic surgeons in Venezuela, and, Colombia. I did some research.

2

Right now I’m thinking Switzerland for a combination of mountains, high standard of living, and maybe being somewhere where I could fit in at work, but that’s a pre-research answer. There are probably plenty of places I could fit in if the working and social environments were right.

3

Some tropical island. I love the beaches. I love warm days and nights. Hawaii would be nice. There are some gorgeous beaches in Mexico. Some lovely Greek islands. What a beautiful planet. It's got some amazing places to visit and to live in. Difficult questions. We best not fuck up our planet. I'd like to at least see some more of places.

2

Ooh, that is tough. I live in the UK, so that's tough to beat. I prefer cooler climates, but I have a thing for brunettes. I'm proficient in French and Spanish. So... I'd probably say France. A variety of climates, hot girls and I know the lingo. Places like Norway and the Netherlands are just too full of blondes.

3

Thinking of leaving this 'shit-hole' country to move to Norway. 😉 Hope nobody else made this joke but I wasn't going to search through 60+ posts!

I was gonna give you thumps up but you made it a joke.

2

Probably Holland but I do plan on spending a year in Japan after I graduate.
Unfortunately I can't stay any where else because I can't leave my car. It's an old sports car and I have spent too much time restoring it to just abandon it lol

2

It's a tossup between Australia, or Germany. Both countries appeal to me.

2

Ireland, Sweden or Switzerland!

2

That's a good one. I really like Montreal and Toronto. I would more likely live in Toronto. Either that or Berlin Germany since I liked visiting there back in 2015.

3

Canada (where I grew up), Australia, or New Zealand. I am seriously thinking about moving to Canada due to rump. I wish I had taken out Canadian citizenship when I could have... 20/20 hindsight.

2

Probably Slovenia as I have cousins there, or Italy. Or Greece? Australia? Amsterdam?

2

Spain.

4

Either Canada or New Zealand.

5

I'm rather fond of Denmark.

5

Iceland or New Zealand

New Zealand is breathtaking. I haven't visited but it's on my bucket list. Probably the only thing that's off-putting is that it's prone to earthquakes.

@VictoriaNotes Dont worry we havent had one in a few hours 😉 lol. We have one of those Alert systems for your phone like Hawaii does, not for nuclear bombs but for earthquakes and tsunamis.

@Sacha Lol -- well then . . . 😀

@Sacha and @VictoriaNotes,Both nations have earthquakes but less people and social problems than most place other places and are equally good choice should I have to move from my preferred home. The thing is that there are a lot of choice that are here in Canada as well its nice to live in a really big nation with a low population.

@HeathenFarmer All of my father's side of the family is from Quebec. I'm half Canadian French. Canada would certainly be an option as it seems more secular, but after the last PM you had there, who was pretty much like a far-righter in the U.S. with dominionist tendencies, my thoughts of moving there diminished somewhat.

@VictoriaNotes Interesting not long after you mentioned this about earthquakes, this link came up on my facebook [charlie-mitchell.carto.com] 10 years of earthquakes in New Zealand in 10 seconds

@VictoriaNotes , Unfortunately Canada is not devoid of people willing to make stupid choices but, it lacks the rabid crazy found in a lot of the States. Harper tried to change this and failed as the conservative will always do. Things like healthcare and the social safety net are things that the average Canadian takes for granted make it really difficult for conservatives to touch. We also have provinces with socialist governments that won't play ball with the likes of Harper.

@HeathenFarmer I know a lot of people from Canada -- people I've met online in the blogging community, and I was stunned to learn that there were many pockets of evangelical Christians there. Several of these Canadians I met and have gotten to know were ex-evangelicals. But, what boggles my mind is that Harper was even elected in the first place. Do you think that this could ever happen again?

@HeathenFarmer For clarification, I wasn't asking if Harper could ever be elected again, but rather, a far-right conservative.

@VictoriaNotes , Yes, Scheer is waiting in the wings he is a social conservative and is best described as Harper with a smile. I live in one of those evangelical pockets with estimates that they make up 30% of Alberta's population.

Northern Territory, Australia
