    I consider all the little variations in landscape, architecture, slang, food, etiquette and so on to be cultural differences... and there are definitely differences.
    Oh yeah, in that case yeah, there are differences. It's kinda hard for me to imagine an American craving British food, though, when everyone knows that Americans have the bbbeeestest ffoood in the entire world and their burgers rule, nom-om-om :coma:

    I don't know yet, it depends on where I like when I travel. It also depends on where I can get work, how well I do with the language, if i'm in a relationship at the time, quality of education. Stuff like that. Though as it stands I like the idea of: USA (Either NYC, Cali or one of the north-eastern states), Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Spain (Barcelona only), Switzerland or Sweden.

    Haha, neither! Well, pigeon Italian. My mum had moved to England when she was very young with her family so she couldn't speak fluent Italian either (better than me though). Then she met my dad in Spain whilst she was working as an au pair, had me and moved back to the UK soon after.

    Pretty complicated lol!

    A nice town in America where all the neighbours know eachother and hang out lots, where you can leave your house unlooked all the time and nothing is ever stolen simply because noone would ever buy the stolen items.
    you can get that in the UK.

    Grr, people are going to keep asking that aren't they?

    I'll quote myself rather than repeat:

    Lol I'm aware of that. I'm sick of it happening to me here so it feels like any where else would be better. I'm allowed to have hope, even if it's baseless.

    I love this country. People are far too unappreciative.

    I'd kill to spend my 20's in Manhattan though.

    I think, once I get the grasp of their language, I could see myself living in the Netherlands as I have family there and go there a lot. It's easy to say US, Canada, Aus etc but I don't know if I could adapt to such a different way of life soooo far away from the UK.

    But, loads of people say that all the problems in this country, if you changed the names, they could really easily apply to any country in the world. You don't see things like dissatisfaction with the government on holiday.

    But,
    Australia. Possibly.

    There's nowhere else I'd rather be. I love England and the whole of Britain.
    And I've been to the US, Canada, Australia and many European countries... I truly love Britain the most. I can't actually understand people's reasons for moving unless they utter a small phrase beginning with 'Gordon' and ending with 'Brown', but fingers crossed he'll be gone with the next election.
    It isn't just Gordon Brown. The powers of the state versus the individual in this country are increasing and the election of the Tories won't solve this fundamental problem. Britain has ceased to be a Liberal country (a long time ago) and is now fully Statist.

    As for me, I intend to go to the US or Singapore.
