Poll question: If you could move to another country, which would it be?
Scenario: You come into a large amount of money and can therefore live wherever you want. Where would you go?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

14. I agree. My niece was there last year.
Nice people, willing to help if you're willing to try to speak their language.

15. Absolutely
I spoke French the entire time I was in Paris, and I found Parisians to be wonderful people, overall. :)

16. My niece(by her own admission) was crappy at French.
But she tried her butt off. She said that total strangers would stop and try to help her with her pronunciation, then laughingly direct her and her classmates to where they were trying to go. They were all about 16yrs old, and lost their teacher a couple of times.

5. I know lots of people in Japan, and I've lived there before, so that would
be my first choice.

However, I think I'm more European than American by tastes and temperament, so any of the European countries would be fine, too.

11. The Palm Islands in Dubai--but only if my house was next to Shah Rukh's.
The Palm Islands are nuts--manmade islands, gorgeous,etc. Shah Rukh Khan has a house on one of them, so does Bill Clinton, and so do the Beckhams, I believe.

Here's the site. Unbelievably beautiful like something out of a dream.

Other than that, England I guess, but compared to the Palm Islands, eh. I'm kind of apprehensive about living in the United Arab Emirates, but having a barbeque with Shah Rukh Khan and Bill Clinton? Hell yeah!

12. Probably Canada, but I might be attracted to Australia too.
I'd actually like to try living in Europe, perhaps Scotland.

I even tried to change citizenship a while back.

Now, Canada or the UK are my second and third choices....



Khash.
