Would you be happy and willing to live in a different place or country ?

Immigration is an essential part of all nations in the world. People move to other cities and countries other than their own for various reasons. Most of them make such a move because of their job or better opportunities or for some it is just the experience of living a life that is culturally different from their own. There are both advantages and disadvantages when you immigrate to a different country. Given the opportunity would you be happy to move to another country ? If so, do you have any particular place in mind?

My parents emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada. I've never moved very far from the area I grew up in...I've travelled but haven't relocated. Now in the next few months I will be moving 1700 km to another province in Canada. This should be an exciting and interesting new beginning.

@Morleyhunt , it is like here in India .. culturally we are so diversified that for a South Indian , living in northern India would be like living in a different part of the world , so also the eastern and Western parts , having totally different food habits and way f life.
I came to Canada when I was 10 and that was 58 years ago. I wasn't happy about the move back then but now I don't know if I would be happier anywhere else than where I am. So, at this stage in my life I'll be staying right where I am, at least for now.

I do not want to leave the United States, but if I had to I would be fine in another English language country. I think I would do fine in Canada, Australia, and so on. But I would be so out of sorts if I lived in a country where English wasn't the primary language.

I have lived in a number of different countries and would be happy to do so again. I lived in Guyana till I was 13. I lived in the Sudan for a short time twice, I then spent some time in Malaysia, then many years in Australia before coming back to the UK.

@catsholiday that's wonderful , am sure you gained a lot through the exposure. We too have lived in many different countries like the UK, Hongkong, Malaysia, Singapore , Dubai. ..I found it a great experience and so did my family. .i have also visited Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt ..
I came to Sweden with my parents at about 10.. Had to learn a New language - but it is easy at that age and the next year we started learning English at school, then German and. some French.. and learned Spanish, as a grown up.. It was good training, as I could communicate with many from other countries and also keep my first language, Finnish.. I could also visit my home country often, and still do.it is vety close..I can see Finland from my window..
