Chosing a country to live in.

If you had to move out of your country to a new one, which country would you choose to go to? Why would to want to live there? Do you think that there are countries that are not worth living in?

I live in my home country which I was born in. It is called England and it is part of the United Kingdom. It is in Europe. I have been lucky enough to visit more than fifty different countries. This summer I went on a three week trip to Canada. I really loved it there. I imagine it would be a great country to move to and live for the rest of my life. Of course it is a long plane ride from there to family plus friends in England. When I was 20 years old I visited Australia and wished to move there and live for the rest of my life. I went back there when I was 28 years old. Sadly I didn't manage to get to move there. Living and working there was very enjoyable and it felt like home to me. I visited New Zealand when I was 29 years old. Again I felt at home there but the weather didn't impress me. I imagine it would be cold in Canada in the winter. So Australia would still be the best choice for me if I moved countries. I like Australian people, the climate is lovely, the wildlife is amazing and the landscape is beautiful. I think if I lived there I would get a better quality of life. Now that I have a disabled child no country would want me to move to it. I would be happy to live in a hot country like Belize. I wouldn't want to live in a war zone.

I'm sure there are some countries that I would not put high on my list of places to live, but the two that I would absolutely love to move to if given the chance are the Netherlands and New Zealand (kind of ironic, since NZ is actually named for a province in the Netherlands!). I lived in the Netherlands for a year and a half when I was 7 and adored it. I'd go back in a heartbeat. As for New Zealand, my family has a number of ties there and my parents lived there for quite some time before I was born. I've only visited once, but could definitely see myself living there. And the bird species...oh my goodness. I would be in heaven. :)

Scotland calls to me... So does Ireland. It would be natural to love your own country but I have secret relationship with Scotland and Ireland that expresses itself in books about said countries, folk music from those countries and of course plans to go travel there. Every time I think about traveling there I get giddy. Riverdance makes me giddy. And bagpipes. And well I'm happy to say thoughts of sheep in Highlands. Right, I have to calm down now, I'm too giddy to type =) *does a happy dance*
