    England. I have always wanted to go there, and even considered working there years ago, I was a few hundred dollars off what I calculated I would need savings wise to get there and set myself up before my wages came in. The plan I would go and get set up and hubby (then boyfriend) would follow once he got visas and stuff set up

I won't live anywhere I'm considered a second-class citizen just for being born a woman. There are some governments I would not want to support with my tax dollars. There are some places I'm just not much interested in. My second pick was Japan. The ability to hop on a train to research my family history was the boost for Europe.

    David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!

    Singapore. We lived there for 3 years when I was in middle school, and went back about 13 years ago to visit my parents when they had moved back there for a few years.

    See, I am not sure where I would go outside of the US. I think much of Europe is more liberal. While there are other places I would like to visit, I do not think there are other places I want to live. Much of that is probably ignorance in that I have never been outside of the US except for CA.

    Me too. I love it there, my favourite place on earth.

    Which is how you can tell I'm not English. Real English people can't say good things about their country. LOL.

    Turkey. Because I am already a citizen there and most of my family is there as well.

    ETA: It's also BEAUTIFUL, I love the culture, and there is always something fun to do and something delicious to eat

    IDK. Not England because that's where I was born and I'm not crazy about the lifestyle but the history is amazing. Somewhere in the EU probably, since I have an EU passport and it would be easy to move. Hmm. Maybe Australia. We have family there just north of the Sunshine Coast. But, I like summers that aren't too smoking hot. This is a hard one. Hmm. I kind of like Canada, truth be told.

    I do love the whole history of England. Castles and knights and such.

    Yeah, it's pretty cool. Westminster Abbey is amazing - all those royal families buried there. I saw a building that was hit by cannon fire back in the 1500s or something and there was a 'dent' in the wall shaped like a cannonball. I guess it didn't explode. The Tower of London is super cool - the 'block' is still out in the courtyard where they'd hold the executions. I saw the crown jewels - OMG, you can't even believe the stuff is real.

    I am not sure I want to live there, but I think it would be fun to visit.
