    Canada or The Netherlands. Can't make up my mind. Probably The Netherlands, it depends on how the Erasmus year I'm probably going to do turns out. If it's as awesome as I think it is, then bye bye UK.

    The food, the weather, the people I know there, the different pace of life. In the UK there is an emphasis on giving all to your work, a social life seems to come a firm second. My experience of France is that family life is very strong and social bonds are firm, and that is exactly the environment I want to be part of. I lived in Bordeaux for 12 months and I loved it; now I'm a uni drop-out and the world is my oyster I figured I have nothing to lose in going back to France to finish my studies. Also, talking of oysters, oysters are cheap in France

    wAOW!!!

    weird, I live in Paris and sh*it people are rude and annoying!! everytime I go to the UK I don't wanna come back!!!! (well I say that but I'm sure I'll miss good 'ol France after a while:rolleyes: )
    But I think that's just Paris... hope so anyway

    Well, as long as you don't have to much trouble learning French I suppose it's OK:p:

    The West probably - Nevada, northern California, Arizona or even Texas.
    Even better!

    I'm looking at either San Diego, Vegas, Phoenix OR DC in the East.

    I did a year at Sciences Po in Bdx so my French isn't bad anyway I think it must be something about the grass being greener on the other side (of the Channel!) ; the French language assistants at uni always wanted to live in the UK and couldn't wait to leave their small hometowns in France. I'm from a ****** small town in North Wales and love Paris and Tours and many other places in France. J'ai trop hate d'y revenir!

    Yes I speak French, although it's a bit rusty at the moment, I haven't spent any real time there for a while, just two nights in 2009 and before that was January 2008. I always find after a few days it comes back though.

    I havn't just thought about it, but have 100% decided on it! I plan to graduate, gain 3-4 valuable experience working in the city...and then I'm on the first place out of here :yep:
    There's no way I'll work hard to earn some money, only to be surrounded by a **** environment filled with **** people when I can bask in the fruits of my labour in more prosperous nations. Besides, I plan to become a banker and the UK is heading towards extremely anti-banking policies so it's only logical to move to more favourable places.

    If I have to go to the East, it'll be Philadelphia or New York.

    I REALLY want to move to Paris or maybe somewhere else in France. I think I'd really miss my family, though, so I don't know. I used to think that I wanted to move to North America but I visited my friend last summer who moved to Canada and I loved it but I don't think I could live there. It was amazing so I think I'll visit there a lot but not live there. I don't think I could leave Europe, I really like the cultures/history/people

    Germany appeals to me I dont know why, its the richest country in Europe right? I'm not to sure. I would like to relocate, but to an English speaking country, otherwise I see a barrier, can you work in any European country other than UK area and not learn another language?

    As someone else said, unless you marry an American then you're pretty much out of luck with the USA. I've looked into it myself. The only exception is if you're super rich, or belong to a key profession (medical doctors, maybe nurses from what I can tell).

    I've thought about doing a PhD in Europe, possibly Denmark, Sweden or Switzerland myself (I speak some German). I'm a bit worried about the funding though, a PhD for me is impossible if I can't secure a stipend!
