If You Could Move to Another Country, Where Would You Go?

Each year, International Living publishes its list of best places to live. For the fifth year in a row, France tops the list. Australia, Switzerland, Germany, and New Zealand round out the top five, thanks to their enviable costs of living, culture and leisure offerings, environments, safety, and weather.

But France shouldn't feel so comfy at the top. Mais non! Another list recently compiled by the World Database of Happiness ranks Costa Rica as the happiest place on earth.

If you could move to a new country, would you want to wake up every morning saying Bonjour, Buenos Dias, おはようございます, or something else?

Somewhere where the living is easy — Australia perhaps? Or Tuscany.

Undecided. New Zealand sounds nice because it's so warm (thinking sandy beaches). I liked Germany. I'd have to agree w/ reesiecup...need to visit more countries before I truly decide. ;)

If I had a choice I would move back to Florence or to Paris.

definitely Barcelona, Spain or in England, preferably in London. I don't know if I'll like the frequent rainfall in England though..

London, England! I lived there for my freshman year of college and plan on moving back once I get my degree. Most wonderful city in the world!

I live in Australia and I would love to jet off to London to escape the heatwaves, and then jet back here because I hate the cold. :p

ENGLAND. It's always been my dream to live there, it's so beautiful. I think it would be cool to live in the Netherlands for obvious reasons haha.

i am so jealous of those of you who have managed to move to a different country. my husband and i have tried but it's hard to get jobs in Europe if you're american. anyways, my top choice would be between Norway or Sweden.

I have lived in France, the UK and Australia. My choice would be Australia but I would want to tow it and anchor it off the coast of Europe so my favourite other places are not so far away!

France is where I want to live. Even for just one year. Paris, or maybe a little town in the south.

I would move in a second to Delphi, Greece. I visited a few years ago and think about its beauty every day.

:) For fun, Japan. Oh I wish I had the means and could speak the language and have a stable job in that country. But in reality I have been aiming to move to England forever, which is equally dreamy for me.
