    But New Zealand definitely sounds like a great place to live. It seems pretty climate resilient (not too near the equator) and has decent food security with plenty of home-grown produce. As for politics, it generally seems pretty stable and sound. The only thing that would make me slightly hesitate would be their really high tax rates.
    I agreed that they tightened up their requirements for PR. 6 years ago, my brother encouraged me to migrate there, but I did not take the chance. Fast forward to last 2 years, my brother called me and told me I cannot migrate there anymore because they have changed their age requirement and so on. I wished I took his call seriously earlier. Although it's quite nice over there, some might not like it. I've lived there for two months and to be honest, there are some cons that people might not realize by just having a short stay. After all, there's no perfect country.

    I really want to get permanent residency for the United States. I love how generally things are simultaneously cheaper here and wages are higher at the same time. Cars are cheap, electronics are cheap, food and housing costs match much better to wages.

    It’ll likely take me a decade or more to make it happen though being born in Asia and without an advanced degree. I haven’t even been able to start the process yet because I keep losing the H1B lottery

    I personally would love to go back to Korea. I went when I was in high school and have practiced the language ever since.

    probably iceland. i have a few friends who are icelandic and the appeal of living somewhere fairly isolate appeals heavily to me. total pop. of the whole country is smaller than the nearest metro to me by huge amounts.

    I live in the US now but I have thought about moving to Canada or somewhere in Europe. But my entire family is in the US, so it makes moving out of the country harder for me personally. I would love to study abroad one day though .

    Ooh, Iceland is great! I visited once while studying abroad, and it was so beautiful. For me, it had this mysterious vibe. I'd love to go back.

    Same with me. I'd love to expatriate to Scandinavia/Ireland/Scotland (I really dislike how every-man-for-himself the US is), but my understanding is that it's extremely difficult
