Even though I grew up in Germany I think I would love to live in Scotland, New Zealand or Ireland.

i would either move to ireland, up in the mid-lakes region or nothwest coast, or to vancouver, b.c., canada.

i've been very tempted in the past to just chuck everything and really do it. but now, i have a little reason to go home every night.

back to dreaming:

in vancouver, i could be a trail guide and ski instructor.

in ireland, i'd be a farmer and fishing guide.

well, we've only been in 3rd world countries.......I really could live in Egypt if the politics don't change....in other words my family's lives are guaranteed safely during our tenure.......but that's not ever a given.......I also liked Singapore very much
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Quite happy where I am, but would like to travel and stay extended periods of time in Italy, Ireland, Denmark, Greece, Switzerland, France, Germany...in no particular order.

Love the clear air and peace and quiet of our little piece of Kentucky. Live on a big hill on an acre of ground. Lots of very old trees and lush green space. Friendly folks who would walk through fire to help. Life is good.

Definitely France. I love how the language sounds (although I don't know any French).

Italy would be second... I love Italian food.

If I had to, probably Australia, with England as a second choice.

Which is funny, because England wouldn't be near the top of my list of places to visit, and Australia isn't either because it's so close...! But they seem like nice places to go if I had to stay.

Italy, for sure. I've studied enough Spanish that I think I could pick up Italian pretty easily, and I love the food, the culture, the history, the art, the pottery ... Yeah, I could be happy there

Also on my list are Italy if it wasn't so expensive (spend some time living just across the border in Switzerland magnificent but costly)

or Mexico

permanently anywhere would be tough though... home is home.
