    Probably England or Germany...great beer in both places.

    I'd probably choose Canada - so I could get back easily (drive if I had to) to see my family.   (I'm in New England, so Canada isn't all that far away anyway.)

    Probably either somewhere in Europe, Asia or Africa. Not really an exact answer is it? I'll go to those places someday.

    Canada. It is filled with nature and close to home.

    Ireland. It's a beautiful place, full of ancient history that I'm interested in, and the home of my ancestors.

    I'm not really sure I could name one. I'd have to some some research on cost of living, amount of freedom people have as citizens, etc. All I know for sure is it would have to be somewhere where the temperatures stay above 70 all year. Although I do like winter, I could live without it and never miss the snow and cold.

    It would be Canada. I've often threatened to move there when things about America got my goat, e.g., health insurance disparities and gun control issues. I grew up 30 minutes from Ontario, Canada so I know that part of the country. I have family there as well. It is also very clean compared to America, no trash on the streets.

      Canada got quite a few positive votes. Iʻve never been there, but have known people from Canada. Iʻm impressed with their social conscience there.

    The Philippines. I've been there and I have friends there.

    Sweden during the late spring, summer, and early fall. The rest of the months Crete.

    First, I've visited the US many times but never lived their. Born and raised UK, lived six years in Germany, now moved permanently to France. I find it a tough call between Germany and France. We have a wonderful, dramatic coastline here in Brittany, NW France, but I love German language far more than I do French, and I get on better with German people. Plus, whoever said the beer's great there is spot on!

    I'd go straight to Canada. I love everything about it especially the fact that Vietnam draftees found asylum there during the war.  Three of them were my friends and although two have returned after the Carter pardon one remains. All three loved it. They said the weather was sometimes harsh but the people were awesome. Two stayed in Toronto and the third lived near  Victoria, BC where he stayed to live like a king. I haven't seen them in years but I remember them well for asking me if I wanted to go with them.  I declined as I figured my age would disqualify me. All three are successful, the BC guy being rich.  Their story makes me sing, "Oh Canada!".

      There have been so many positive comments about Canada. Iʻve never visited, but definitely want to now.

    Probably Iceland. A peaceful out of the way country that mind's its own damned business and doesn't pretend to be the world police.

    When's the last time you heard of Iceland invading another country? lol

    There is no doubt in my mind that I would go to Japan. Having lived in Okinawa for four years, I can say with certainty that I enjoyed every moment I was there. Besides the fact that the Japanese culture is one of the most interesting that I have experienced, the people that I came into contact with were extremely respectful and friendly.
    My wife taught private school while I worked in the various DoDD's schools, treating kids that needed Occupational Therapy services. My wife had never before experienced the level of respect that the people of Japan have for teachers. The culture was amazing as a whole and I would go back to live there again if I ever left America.

      I agree, Dave, that the Japanese culture is interesting in addition to being unique and quite beautiful. Iʻd love to go there someday.
