Hello everyone, I myself live in the Netherlands. It is an ok country to live in and I must admit that certain stuff like healthcare are very good here. However the taxes are extremely high, and I think it is very cold here a lot. Today it is 3 degrees, and this evening they even said it would be minus 3. That makes me think that sometimes I wish I could just pack up all my things and move to another country. I would choose a country where it is warm everyday. If you were to move to another country, which country would it be?

I would move anywhere I could be happy. Of course we know happy means being stable and secure that your basic needs are looked after and if possible some of the extra's. It has been -20 knee high in snow and the tax man knows everyone here but at the end of the day I;m here where I was born and just want to be warm mostly in bed. Seriously, though I always thought that you really don't know much about a place until you move there because it doesn't really happen as a tourist. I think it is all about the people. I have learned a little by talking to people and getting to know them is best.

knee-high is oh so very relative. I mean, if you're a 7ft amazonian goddess then it's a significant height, but if you're just a little 'un it might be not much at all. I am guessing you're an inbetweener.

Why is there only women in your friends list? There is a big spread of snow on the ground. How do I know. They keep pushing it around and it is higher in some places than others.

i goes the weather is not so extreme, and the economic is good can find a decent life living and the crime rate is low and the people mind they own business and at the same time have some civic common sense not to burden other people , at least not cause havoc by own stupidity and selfishness.I guess tat country does not exist yet.Haha.I guess i am ok with my own country now in asian.

I would like to go to UK and live permanently here. Which in fact i will do the next September for studies and work. My brother is also there studying his PHD so i decided to go there too.. Here in my country the weather is very good but there are other "storms" here which make all Greek people to migrate..

so many filipino like me love to be there but not because of the cold place but because of the good earning we can get from there.Yes it has a big taxes but you are definetely lucky to be a citizen there.your country is not that poor as ours.But if you want to live in a warm country I can recommend you philippines.Its so beautiful here specially the beaches.We have low cost of living,but be sure you have business because working here is not too good salary.

I like my country a lot.. I would not like to move to any other country at any time.. I think that every country has it's own pro's and con's and shifting will not be solution to it.. you just have to work harder to make your life better...

I'd have thought the place that Peter Pan came from would be an ideal place to live and not cold at all, so I am surprised to find out you are suffering the same kind of temperatures as we are in the UK. I don't like it too hot so I am quite happy where I am. Maybe I could just add a little hot water to your bath? I am sure that would warm you up. It's certainly brought a little colour to my cheeks just suggesting it.

Hello. I live in England and yesterday evening was freezing cold. This morning the grass looked icy. Winter is the season that is my least favorite. I adore summer due to the weather and the long light evenings. I often wish I could move to a tropical destination. Though I have a disabled son so I am best to stay in the country that has free health care. I love traveling to different countries in the world. Out of all the countries I have visited I would be totally happy living in Australia near to the coastline or in Northland in New Zealand. Cape Town in South Africa would be an amazing place to live. I visited it in 2009. I think Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Thailand would be an exciting job. It wouldn't be a permanent place to move to unlike say migrating to Australia. I wish I have moved permanently to Australia when I had that chance.

I would move to Miami. I just love sun, beaches, and subathing, but I dream about visiting the Netherlands. Especially for cycling becaus the views are great. Also it's a really liberal country which is great in my opinion. Low temperatures have some postive sides, e. g. You can go make a snowman in the winter : ). Regards from Poland

Hi mistissa! I lived in a tropical country where we don't experience snow and freezing point temperature. I myself are wondering of what would it be like when I lived on the icy place where I can experience snow. But I realized I have to make adjustment physically and psychologically, just like what you would do when you wished to move somewhere warmer than Netherlands. I for myself are willing to move to another country if I would be given more opportunities in there no matter how warmer or colder was it than what I used to live.
