    Unusual one but Ghana - life is so much simpler and people much much more friendly - plus the hot weather, cheaper living costs and amazing natural beauty.

    After this it would be Australia and then Sweden.

    I would love to visit Australia and Germany. I don't know if I could commit to moving so far away though and leaving family and friends behind. It would be hard...

    I spent 4 months over the summer living and working there. I met some amazing people and visited some equally amazing places.


    What I really liked was the simplicity of life - people actually greeted you everywhere you went and wasn't stuck to smartphones etc. Plus most people speak english and the local language is easy to pick up.

    Well, it's certainly a great place but sometimes not that one-dimensionally positive. For the sake of the simplicity you trade of other stuff like advanced healthcare, democracy (not int he great picture, Ghana is a democratic country, but almost every policeman you meet has to be bribed), some basic human rights etc.

    Mmm, some big bustling Asian city, I'm thinking Tokyo or Shanghai, but only for a little while.
    I'd settle down in Ireland or somewhere drastically different like a remote Thai island or a (not so remote) Greek one.

    The UK first and foremost, then Australia.

    Wouldn't mind Canada, but it's too cold there!

    It's a peaceful country with a very high quality of life, social security and loads of culture, why did you expect it to be lower :confused:

    i don't really think that is true, or fair, that nowhere else is worth the time of day.. there are many other lovely places, safe places, beautiful places.. unless you just haven't travelled much and haven't experienced it for yourself.. but there are lots more lovely places

    Hello! It's me. I wanted just to see you in a forum again. I guess the writer of the comment expected a higher percent rate in comparison to Germany, as he expected that there are a lot member who are be fond of metropolis. Apart from this possibly fact there are also nice natural places in the USA. One of my acquaintances was in America with his wife some years ago and he showed me his pictures which he made during the travel around America. So I realized that USA has both breathtaking big cities and wonderful natural places.

    I'm considering my future plans and while I'll most likely choose Canada for the quality of life and the fact I'll qualify for a visa I'm still tempted by the other options I've previously considered.
    What kind of career are you considering? You may want to think about that- for example, Germany and Switzerland are really good for sciences, whereas USA (I imagine) would be better for business/economics.
    Also, amazed nobody has suggested Hong Kong yet! Amazing city

    Although there are some countries in which I would love to live, my native country Germany would come always first. But if the conditions might come be true one day, I would not exclude to move to Uruguay or Japan at all.
