Emigrating

Postby beowulf7 » 02 Sep 2019, 17:13

If I has to leave my home country then I would settle in ....?

Because ...?

Which countries do you admire (as a place to live) and why?

Which countries would you actively try and avoid?

I'm from UK - countries I could see myself moving to live in are: Canada and New Zealand (because I suspect that I'd find the culture and beliefs not too far from my own and I have to think of family) and Thailand (because it's a wonderful country)

Countries I don't fancy - USA, Australia, Israel (I'm discounting the obvious eg N Korea and anywhere war torn, disease ravaged or totally poor.)

The Republic of Ireland. I just spent three weeks there and it is just a wonderful place. People are kind and the country is beautiful and sort of speak English. In fact, as we drove around I kept saying I could live here.

"sort of" chuckle. I'd back you up on that. Had some great holidays there. Economy is taking a hit right now but the pace of life is much more pleasant. And the scenery is great

I drove in Cornwall from Heathrow and it was terrifying while in Ireland there was little traffic. It was a completely different experience. Ireland was wonderful except for Northern Ireland which seemed a little depressing. There is still a lot of hate there I think. So we just drove south to Kilkenny.
