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..:)
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.
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 agree...that's why I had such a hard time trying to think f an answer.
Britain would have been one of my answers, too. I love the Brits. :-)
Lol...loved this comment. Sounds like a great place to be. -)
My daughter-in-law's family is from Scotland...gorgeous country.. :-)
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...
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. :-)
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. :-)
And thank you for your "two-pennorth"! Good to seey ou.
