I have a hypothetical question for the AOM community.  If you had to leave your country to live somewhere else the rest of your life, which country would you move to and why?  What would you look for when trying to decide?

 

 

As for my $0.02, I'd be moving from Canada.  Its cold here and I hate winter, so I'd be looking for someplace warm.  Also, I've always wanted to learn Spanish and take up surfing, so I would probably move to someplace like Mexico or Costa Rica.  Maybe Spain.  Its hard to say.

James I think you'd be happier if you could move to the 1800s.
I'm assuming we will still have to make a living?

If so I am going to go with the UK. They speak English, which is a serious perk plus you have all of Europe at your doorstep.

Sounds good to me.
Also (hypothetically) moving from Canada, it's a tough choice for me between France and Greece.

I would move to France because I speak the language fluently and love the culture (food, music... everything!). Not Paris, though; I'd be aiming more Mediterranean.

I would move to Greece because of the stories my mother told me of her experiences there, the warmth and the sun would be a welcome change from Canada's winter, and because I'm intrigued with their history and mythologies. In fact, I'm currently teaching myself to speak Greek, since I do hope to eventually spend time there.

I think at this moment in my life I would rather move to France, simply for the fact that I would be more accustomed to their culture; I'm only a novice in things Greek.
Hello to you, too!
In school, we are mainly taught "true" French, so I wouldn't have any problem in France. Of course, I've also spent some time in Québec, and their dialect, while a little.. uh... "rough," is not incomprehensible either.
I did some traveling (about 9 months worth, in all) aboard a Navy vessel in the late 90s and of all the places we visited, Greece was my favorite. The scenery is beautiful, the people are warm and welcoming, and the food is unbelievable. I was actually disappointed by Italy, but maybe it was just the port we were in (Naples; we hit Sicily, too, but I was on duty for that port and didn't get to leave the ship).

We also hit the island of Malta, south of Sicily, which is a very close 2nd to Greece.

Although, I have to say, per capita, the most beautiful women were actually in Romania!
I love Canada, my nation, but my home is Newfoundland, which I have left. If I don't live there I'm pretty much about the same level of happy anywhere.
Try Australia..I did and still live here :)

I'm trying to decide this very question at the moment...I've lived in Australia, Canada and the UK, but am thinking of trying somewhere new...maybe New Zealand? If I could take the time to get the language down, I would love to live in Japan for a bit though.
Someplace that speaks English and is warm
Hmm, That's a tough one. Ireland, New Zealand, or Barbados.
He said warm. Not the winter to pick Ireland
That is why Barbados is on the list. Since this is just a dream anywhy, I might as well dream I can afford a winter house where it is warm.
