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. :-)
Genna...Thank you.....one more huge reason would be that no foreign language issues!.....I'm glad we can all stay where we are for now..:)
Britain would have been one of my answers, too. I love the Brits. :-)
Thank you for your interesting answer about Cape Breton Island. I've seen photos and it is really quite beautiful.
Cape Breton maybe a step up from Barrie, Ontario although Muskoka (situated close to Barrie) is beautiful too. I think just North of Barrie would be an excellent choice also...
Thank you, connrj. It was on Lake Simcoe in Barrie..a beautiful place at the time; the water was so clear. :-)
Yes I have been on lake Simcoe a few times. The area is still quite beautiful...
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 Mexico and Canada...I love Canada. :-)
Why Iceland? What did you like about it? It's seems like a beautiful country and one that values freedom. I'd love to see a Hub about it.
Availiasvision, Iceland is a beautiful country. Reykjavik is a beautiful, modern city. But the beauty is in the natural wonders of geysers, water falls, glaciers, ocean cliffs, wandering sheep, volcanoes and puffins. Gotta love the puffins.
Thank you for your answer. I've never thought of New Zealand.
Retiring in your home country would be wonderful...it's great that you have that choice. :-)
Lol...loved this comment. Sounds like a great place to be. -)
I agree...that's why I had such a hard time trying to think f an answer.
My daughter-in-law's family is from Scotland...gorgeous country.. :-)
I've been to Iceland and would choose there as well. It is a beautiful country. Just have to beware of volcanoes occasionally.
I've never seen Iceland, but my father's family was from there originally. before eventually ending up in Canada. I spent many summers in Barrie, Ontario. It's a beautiful country. :-)
And thank you for your "two-pennorth"! Good to seey ou.
