    I don't think there is a place left now that we are being systematically replaced.
    Maybe an island somewhere .I watch this couple on YouTube that sail around the world and most of the islands south of the equator seem ok.:) People seem peaceful and the waters are still beautiful and full of life.

    I wouldn't leave the USA. (If forced to go, I'd probably choose Canada and live close to the border. :D)

    When I leave the USA, I plan to go to heaven. It sounds like a nice place.

    I wouldn't want to either but if I had to and was younger of course It would be tropical.
    Canada is nice too except its cold. I'm too old to acclimate.

    At this point in my life, I wouldn't move away (from Canada) for anything. However, I've loved the U.S. since childhood, and had the pleasure of living in four wonderful states (Washington, California, New Mexico, and Georgia), and visited many more. If younger and still in nomad-mode I'd go back to New Mexico in a heartbeat, as the desert suits me very well. I like wide open spaces, flat land, big skies. The sunsets and sunrises alone can break your heart they are so beautiful.

    I spent 3 years in Europe in the service and never came back to the US in all that time. You'll never get me out of here again.

    If I was forced out by kidnapping and unable to return, I would choose lower Alberta somewhere below Calgary.

    I left America three times in my life and every time I returned I wanted to kiss the ground…..My family’s been here since the 1700s and the soil’s in my blood and I’m not happy anywhere else.

    I have been to New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec provinces and loved them all. My favorite was NB and I wouldn't mind living there...so beautiful and the people were very friendly. I'd love to go back again someday, or better yet see some of the western side of the country and the Canadian Rockies.

    I think snow and ice crystals are very beautiful and really are winter wonderlands. But I'm too old to get use to the cold now.
    I like watching videos from places like Sweden .I put up videos about it.

    We were crazy for the Maritimes as well. Took two cross-country road trips and loved each one. Planned another just before covid hit, this time was going to be a more leisurely one, so much for that idea, lol, at least for now.

    We got to see, and almost buy, the house that my great great great grandfather build in Nova Scotia. House is beautiful, it remained in my family until the 1930s when my great-grandmother, by then alone, was unable to keep up with the 75 acre farm so she moved to Vancouver to be with her mother (my grandmother) in Vancouver. She sold it to a family that had it right up to the point when we would have bought it, the family's son (who grew up to be a Senator) stayed in the house and was obsessed with my family. He had 20 filing cabinets full of our history, which I would love to get hold of.

    At any rate, we came so close to buying the place about three years ago, and like so many good but really big ideas, we didn't do it.

    I don’t know why I’d leave the country again, but if I were forced to leave, I’d choose Canada.

    If I left America, I guess I might go to California.
