Even though I don't like being cold, I would move to Canada. Stable government, places to get lost, etc. Maybe they don't spy on their people as much.

I lived in Sydney Australia a while back. A very pretty place, but even more expensive than California. I used to travel very frequently to Switzerland. I could very easily relocate to the area of Lucern or anywhere on Lake Geneva with ease. These are gorgeous places that are within a few hours drive of some of the World's best places to travel to, like Florence, Nice, Salzburg, and so on. A hundred years ago some of my ancestors came from that area. The only difficulty is the very high cost of living and the distance from family. Oh, and the Swiss solved the health care situation years ago. It is a national system that uses private doctors and hospitals. Everyone is covered including tourists. The cost is 40% of the USA health care costs.

Don't get me wrong I love my Country, but when you travel around the World there are lots of places, these days, where the standard of living is comparable to here or sometimes better. One very big thing that no other place seems to have been able to match the USA though is the National Parks. Ours are sublime and wonderful. Nothing like those in Switzerland or Australia.

I have no plans to leave America but if I did, England would really be my only choice.. Why,, Well, as an American I do not speak English.. (I speak American English which is a different language) but as a member of several international forums I do UNDERSTAND English for the most part and learning it should not be that hard.

Where as French, or German, or Itialian or ____ an... I might know 5 words, but to be honest, not even enough to, as they say "Get my face slapped".

I have only been to Canada and would visit other countries if the opportunity presented it self. However, there is so much I want to see in our country that I probably will never leave.

I wouldn't but you sound as though you might and want suggestions:


Checkout Central America. Nice climate, health care inexpensive living and for the most part a friendly environment. Many folks like Costa Rica and Panama. Nicaragua is growing on this list of places to live well inexpensively. I found these countries easy to navigate speaking English and quite beautiful.

I wouldn't walk around Washington DC at night but my wife and I did Granada Nicaragua, had pizza for dinner. Wonderful time, but it is not home nor will it be.

One way to really get a feel for America is to go somewhere else. Makes you appreciate what you have even more.

Australia or New Zealand would be my choices, since they're both English-speaking nations, but they're a long way from our family in the US and Japan.

The UK has changed so much since we emigrated in 1968, that wouldn't be on my list.
