    Greece. Great climate, great scenery, great food, great - in the main - people.

    Would love to live there. I know there are economic problems, but still...

    But they are bankrupt?

    While I'd love to (and hopefully will) travel to many great places, ultimately, for me, nowhere really tops the posh parts of central London, like Green Park etc.

    I have to say I quite like living in the UK - can't beat being home!

    However, If I moved to another country I'd say New Zealand

    I feel the same like you. There are just a few of countries as written above which come into question, but as long as I'm not able to fulfill certain requirements (learn a new foreign language, find a work place out of my native country and so on) I'm staying here, at home.

    Out of the ones I've lived (Germany, Scotland, Ghana) in I liked Ghana most, but it falls in a totally different category, and I would choose Germany over Scotland for quality of life, weather etc. Checking out Australia soon

    As far as I know Scotland is well-known for beautiful landscapes. That is an aspect which I like when I think about Scotland. What about you?

    I don't necessarily know what living in any other country is like and i have never been abroad. However, i personally like the German language and contemporary History is my favorite subject and considering most of contemporary history revolved around Germany i would love to live in Germany one day to experience it. Ich mochte nach Deutschland fahren.

    Ireland is home and home is where i will stay. Though Austrailia does appeal, that and Japan, South Korea

    Honestly speaking, Switzerland or Austria from what I've heard and read about them. However it doesn't come cheap so I don't know if it'll ever be a genuine option later in life.

    Living in another country usually comes coupled with working there - with a Swiss salary you'll be able to afford a Swiss lifestyle

    The US. If it wasn't for the gun culture/laws and the healthcare policies my choice to live there would be definite.

    Not to be boring, but where I live now, England. I love other countries and definitely want to travel, but I just love England. I was born and bred here, I love the English language and all the peculiarities of it, I love the English culture and humour. I love my home county, Yorkshire, just because of how friendly it is, but I love places like London at the same time for the atmosphere and such.
    I'd love to visit the USA but I can't really fathom the gun laws or the healthcare system. But that is just because of where I've been brought up and how. I'm sure in the USA, if you were born there, you would be used to it. Germany seems nice, but I don't particularly like the language or accent and I don't know, England just feels like home.

    That's a valid enough point!
