The country in which you live/work and the country in which you were born cease to exist.

Where do you move?

Down Under to Australia.

Edge's Cat will share his basket with me.

I am too thick to learn another language - English was hard enough and never really mastered that, but get by....so a civilised largely English speaking country is a must...

New Zealand, Canada, India, Ireland would be the others on the list....given that criteria of being a civilised place where English is widely spoken/main language, but Australia is top of the list - I like the attitude of the people/the culture - I like the accent on the female of the species too and I like their sense of humour and sporting culture

Not so big on massive spiders and snakes, but Edge's Cat will sort them out for me.

Would be a very difficult, I mean VERY difficult, choice between France and the UK.

France would probably edge it, because of the food and the wine. The wine mostly.

Canada, because it's a 45-minute trip.

I was going to say Canada. I already have a few friends in Toronto and Montreal.
But if I was more adventurous and wanted to start from scratch I'd go for New Zealand. Middle Earth !
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Australia.  God knows why anyone would like Aussie Sheila's accents though; it's one of the least sexy female accents in the world.  The good thing about Oz is you're close to a lot of SE Asian women.  I reckon Perth WA would be the place I'd settle.

Tough one.  I've been bi-coastal for a few years now between the US and UK and am currently stuck in the US.  Seeing what is happening in my hometown the past two months i can't wait to get the hell out of here and never look back.  Denmark was one of my favorite countries to visit and it was beautiful but i might try to go a bit more out there pick India in either the Goa or Himachal Pradesh regions (the jungle beach or Himalayan parts).  Really felt a connection there and it would be cheap living and more of a spiritual life.

I've never been to Goa, but the parts of India I have been to have been absolutely filthy. Is Goa different?

I know someone who has lived in Goa for donkey's years.  Must be good.

My wife and I spent 10 weeks backpacking around India and spent time in nearly every region other than the NE.  I couldn't tolerate the cities and we tried our best to avoid them after a while- chaotic and the constant noise was enough to drive anyone insane, not to mention the non-stop scams locals would try to pull over us.
Goa was pretty peaceful and quiet.  We went from the Southern tip of India and worked our way up along the West coast staying at lots of cool beaches- some more popular than others.  These were the only places other than Rishikesh where we ever saw any other Westerners- or are Russians considered Westerners even?
My wife loves beaches so Goa was her favorite place.  I liked Rajastan and then the Northern mountainous regions.  I'd love to go back but with a 2 year old, not sure when it will happen.

The Pacific Northwest. If it's urban then any of Portland, Seattle, Vancouver are all great livable cities which are on the doorstep of huge national parks.

But specifically British Columbia - one of the most beautiful places in the world and ideal for any outdoorsy person!

Additionally.. many great indie bands reside in the Pacific NW region, particularly Oregon (Portugal. The Man, Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, The Shins) etc.. where better place to live?

I could've sworn that.. well you're right, as looking on Wikipedia.. it turns out they're from Montreal!

Are you from BC yourself?
