If you had to leave the country you live in today...


If you had to leave the country you live in today – heaven forbid – and could choose any other nation in which to live, what country would it be? Someone asked me this the other day. I said, “If I had no choice? It would probably be Canada or Denmark. I think. No…wait a minute. I’m not sure.” It’s not an easy question to answer.

    Canadians are such lovely people. :-) But this question does cause us to think about what we have, and what we would lose or gain if we were to live elsewhere. Is the grass really greener? I liked your thoughtful answer. Thank you. :-)

    Retiring in your home country would be wonderful...it's great that you have that choice. :-)

    One of the reasons I thought of Denmark aside from Canada is that I understand it is one the happiest countries. Its citizens are very content and fulfilled; with very low crime, among other things. Thank you for that perceptive answer. :-)

    I've been to Iceland and would choose there as well. It is a beautiful country. Just have to beware of volcanoes occasionally.
