If you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Posted 27 July 2013 - 02:39 AM

So I go back to University in September, and I was just looking around on the course guide for something I could transfer my credits to for a year study abroad. At the moment, the main option is the Erasmus exchange scheme which could go to: Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

While they are some really cool places to go and live for a year, I was kind of hoping to get somewhere in Canada. I visited there when I was younger, with a friend who was visiting his family, and I really enjoyed it. The same friend moved permanently over there a couple of years ago so would be nice to see him too. He's currently living somewhere in Vancouver.

Just looking through all these different places to live had me wondering. If you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I live in the UK but Canada has always appealed to me too. That or Australia!

I'd move back to the NW quadrant of Washington, DC. Loved it down there.

I live in Australia. If I had a once in a life time opportunity to move anywhere in the world, I would pass it up, just to stay here in Australia. It's a beautiful country.

My uncle and his family whom I'm very close to moved to Madison Wisconsin about a year ago. I've now been up to see them a few times now and I really like it. Austin would be my next pick and was my pick before I saw Madison. I like the people and culture of the towns and the selection of things to do, eat, etc... This said I haven't exactly gone city hunting, those are just my top 2 picks of the cities I have spent enough time in know if I like them or not.

I would move to and be living large in Fiji. You know those post cards of like the perfect tropical island? It was probably taken in Fiji. And you know that stylish coder who is writing epic stuff with like 4 hot girls on his arm? Yeah that would be me and one of those girls would be yours. That is just how I would role in Fiji. Loved the country!

Only bad thing about it is that if you are like dying, not exactly that great of medical facilities over there. I plan on solving that by enslaving the population and let them take care of me.

Canada. Unlike the U.S., it has a civilized health care system, and it is consistently ranked as one of the best countries in which to live.

I've always been interested in Toronto if I were to consider Canada.
Lots of cities in the US that I want to check out:
Boston (current location, it's great)
Memphis
DC (lived pretty close, would have to be making a lot of money to deal with it)
Minneapolis/St. Paul
Denver
Savannah
Pittsburgh -People give me shit for this but I *do* kind of like the place. There's something endearing and down-to-earth about it.
Charlotte
Raleigh

I honestly have no desire to end up on the west coast.

I've also heard good things about San Antonio, but I question how well I'd do in the Texas climate.

No one place is perfect. I've been all over the place and there's always something I like and something I hate about that place.

I'll enjoy the geology, but despise the local government.

Love the weather and food, but find the packed in population aggravating and the traffic atrocious (here's looking at you LA)

Love the people and diversity, can't stand the lack of any hills (but the everglades are beautiful)

Desire for seasons and truly dark nights, hate the fact my family also lives there.



So I move around a lot instead.

The moon, I'd certainly make an exception to what I said for the moon.
