    At the moment I'm looking at 4 countries, Thailand, Philippines, Panama, and Belize.

    Why? The collapse of the US economy.

      Panama and Philipines sound good. Belize is not a Paypal supported country, I think so that may be a problem for your internet marketing business.

      Edit: I just double check and Belize is totally Paypal friendly so forget about my comment above
      .


      Argentina and Uruguay are in my list (I tend to favor Uruguay though)

      lol! I corrected my mistake. Belize is 100% supported by Paypal but it wasn't some time ago.

    SWITZERLAND!

    WHY? Official languages, of which 3 are in the top 30. LEGAL heavy force protection by CIVILIANS! A STABLE economy! A society not given to the whims of another. a 1st world nation, even if it ISN'T a superpower. Oh well, it is debatable that ANY superpower is a first world nation anymore. They are respected!

      Switzerland came second in last year's Newsweek listings of the world's top ten countries, for the reasons you mention, Steve, and others.

      Finland actually came out on top, and not for the first time (I've never been there - the language is said to be absolutely impossible and there's plenty of snow), Sweden was third (no great surprise there, I think) ... I can't remember the others, now.

      Uruguay and Estonia are usually also in pretty high positions on "lists" like this, published by organisations/the media.

      Interesting that three of those countries usually in the top five (Finland, Sweden and Estonia) are very close neighbors.

      I'm always slightly surprised not to see the British Channel Islands listed in these things, but maybe for some technical reason, in spite of their political and economic independence, they don't count as "a country" for the purposes intended? :confused:

        Well, the languages in switzerland are 10,14,and 21. They are also 4 of the most popular european languages and ones taught in US highschools. Apparently the scandinavian languages didn't even make the top 50. They would probably be around 20 if they were listed as scandinavian. For scandinavia, I think I would prefer denmark.

          So would I, I think. And I'm told it's by far the easiest Scandinavian language for an English-speaker to learn.

          (Estonian is also close-to-impossible, nearly as bad as Finnish: the nouns have about 14 cases each :rolleyes: ).

            danish, norwegian and swedish ARE very similar. I believe they all handle verbs the same way.

            jeg er (I am)
            han er (he is)
            hun er(she is)
            det er(they are)
            vi er(we are)

            Kind of neat. Articles are harder though. 8-(

    Switzerland would be nice - Beautiful scenery, trains on time, probably a ton of ATM's - and their "military industrial complex" is an army that rides mountain bikes, takes archery, and is famous for a cool knife -
    And you gotta admit, tough as they might be - they sure dress funny at the Vatican :rolleyes:
    (how do they hide an uzi under that outfit - and how did they get that gig in the first place??)

    California, or somewhere on the West coast, though that's not a different country for me. Actually, I like the idea of being somewhat nomadic rather than permanently tied to one place. Out of the countries I've been to, I was most drawn to Ireland, the South of France and for some reason Finland. Btw, Finnish may be hard to learn but almost everyone speaks English there, at least in Helsinki.

    If I had too pick a place for the sheer beauty of landscape - Bali, Indonesia.

    For social hospitality and beauty of landscape - Queensland, Australia.

    The most relaxing atmosphere - Hawaii.

    For cloudy weather, snow, and really lousy professional sports - there's no place like Ohio

    If I'm going to do that just for the heck of it (and me being a huge fan of anime and electronic gadgets), I'd say Japan.

    However, a friend told me that the cost of living alongside Akihabara district is way bigger than here.
