Question If you were to move to another country . . .

I was just wondering, if you were to move country, where would you go? I'd probably like to go and live in Australia or Canada, since they are both English speaking countries, and I'll be damned if I'm going to learn another language. Faern would also be acceptable, but I've been recently informed that it is slightly not real.

What about you? Where would you move to? Just curious.

Please don't call the police.

I would move to Germany. I've been learning the German language for 3 years now and I absolutely love it. My second choice would be Ireland.

i'd move somewhere where people aren't stuffed in big cities and there's no country side. i love country side and nature. but it would of course have to be financially positive and democratic country too

also, it'd have to be somewhere where they are not douche bags about internet and copyright laws if you know what i mean

what country is this?

@Russ: Switzerland?

I'd move to the USA, Japan, Australia or UK.

If I were to move again then I would probably look at Australia. I'm from England and then moved to Belgium where I lived/worked for 3 years then went on to Canada where I've been for the last 7 years.

If you are able to then I would definitely recommend it, usually as you get older you start to get tied down which is not bad, but does making big changes like moving country/continent a lot harder. When I got the opportunity to move to Canada I was there within 3 weeks, just paid to get out of my apartment rental, packed up my stuff into boxes and had it shipped and I was gone.

I dread to think how long it would take me to move back to UK now or make a similar move elsewhere.

Why would I move away from Finland?

(maybe Sweden, Norway or Canada)

Two Sheds, high five fellow expat buddy!

I'm an Australian but I've lived 8 years in Thailand and am currently living in the Czech Republic, and echoing what Two Sheds has said - if you have the urge, go go go! Traveling and living in foreign cultures has been the most fulfilling thing I've done. Also, don't let little things like not speaking the language hold you back, that's all part of the fun.

As for me, I'm not done yet, I've no idea where I'll be in the next few years and I'm open to anywhere, provided it isn't the USA. I have no urge to go there for some reason.

Talking

Russia! Beautiful (not fat womans - waist like a wasp), inexpensive vodka + . Another option is sunny country with clean beach & water, low taxes, not much venereal diseases, fast I/C, well paid job and lot of healthy fruit & not modified getetic / stereoids /anabolic meat. If You like talk choice big city if You a Introwertic must live like a redneck in small city or country without noise, smoke gases, people who is loud and angry toxicomaniacs walking in nights on "ripped movies".

women are ok, but this will be getting worse as more and more people grow addicted to junk fast food and the fats oh don't get me started on how fat russian sweet meals are. and russian vodka is kind of shitty really (the cheap one anyways)

plus, the crime, fake democracy which really is a dictatorship with a lot of mafia going on and problems with jobs makes russia a terrible place to live in

no russia for you
