So I know the title sounds a little confusing since I kinda had a tough time trying to phrase it, but let's say you had to live in all of the 7 continents (obviously excluding Antarctica) sometime in your life. Which country/countries would you pick for each continent and why?

North America: USA would be the first choice since I already live in it. I'd like to live in Canada, too, but I heard immigration to Canada can be kinda tough. The weather's usually moderate throughout the USA, although there are places with extremes like Nevada or Wyoming. I know Canada isn't all snowy, but based on what I've heard, most places are usually cold except for British Columbia and Alberta which are warmer.

Canada obviously is in better shape at the moment, not to mention they're a little more progressive in certain aspects that America could and should be. So in that aspect, Canada would be better. I'd say it's a tie.

Central America/Caribbean: It's impossible for me to go to Cuba, so that's out of the question. Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Panama all seem like interesting countries. I am aware that Jamaica has a pretty high crime rate, but compared to places like Haiti, I guess it could be worse.

South America: It would kinda be a tie between Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. Since Chile and Argentina are developed countries, job opportunities would seem the most promising. Uruguay also seems to be doing fairly well economically, but I don't really know much about the domestic issues they might be facing. Brazil's culture is fascinating with it's multicultural roots as well as the beautiful music. The huge downside would be the crime, though.

Europe: This one's kinda a tough one for me, considering that Americans are looked down upon in Europe. Regardless, the easiest place to live would be in the UK since it's one of the strongest economies in Europe as well as being the only country (besides Ireland) that speaks English as an official language. Germany seems extremely nice, too, as it's a very innovative and technologically-advanced country. It would be kinda cool to live anywhere in Western Europe, as well as Eastern Europe although many Eastern European countries are still kinda hurt from their communist past.

Although at the moment, a lot of places in Europe kinda seem unpredictable with all the debt crises that they're currently facing.

Asia: Since I like Asian culture a lot, this one's kinda hard to make a decision. Obviously I like Japan for its culture and economic strength, but their immigration policies are one of the strictest in the world. Not to mention, it's a pretty xenophobic country, so no matter how long or how assimilated I might become, I would still be seen as a stranger. I don't know how it is in Korea, but I have a feeling it might be the same. I guess it would be fair to say I'd like to live somewhere with more multiculturalism like the Philippines or Malaysia. Honestly, I don't really know which country would fit me the best. I guess I'll have to go with Japan.

Africa: Obviously South Africa. Not to be disrespectful to any other African country, but it seems to me that too many places in Africa are way too poor for someone to move to.

Oceania: Australia or New Zealand would be my prefered region to live in. Then again, any tropical island would seem really fun to live in (but not always, I guess).

Forgive me if my choices sound ignorant, by any means.

Australia is a continent, and I already live here.

Europe, France because it's beautiful.

Asia, Japan because it's advanced in technology, beautiful and significant cultural history.

Africa, Madagascar... if it's anything like the cartoon...

N America, Canada, because I heard people are less religious there. I like secularism.

S America, I'm not sure I want to live there.

Yeah, kind of a confusing question since Oceania and Central America/Caribbean aren't continents (not trying to be 'that guy' but the question is kind of tricky with your answers).

Anyways, mine would be:

Australia/Oceania - New Zealand simply because of the scenery and the people

Europe - Between Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden due to the culture, architecture, food, and the natural environment

Asia - Japan of course, I love everything about Japan: Food, History, Culture, Anime, technology...pretty much everything

Africa - South Africa because the official language is English and it's a more modern and safe country compared to the rest of Africa

North America - Probably have to say the U.S ( since I already live here), Costa Rica, or Panama.

South America - Argentina because of the architecture and modernity of Buenos Aires

North America - Canada, because we are the land of freedom! hollaaa

Asia - HK/Japan , since its my second home country.

Central America/Caribbean - Trinidad seems beautiful or the Dominican Republic ,but I can't stand the heat for too long =S give it a year before I move?

South America - Brazil is beautiful and a lot of my Japanese friends moved there , and again because I can't stand the heat give it a year before I move.

Europe - Germany, since Urban Dance Camp is there and it wouldn't be too bad learning German .

Africa - More so I'll visit Egypt but not live there.


Oceania - Australia, because apparently from what I hear its a second Canada.

North America - If i had to choose one i would choose Canada. Then again, I respect my privacy to much to live in NA.

Asia - South Korea. While Japan is first choice for travel destination i wouldn't like to live there. There is not only a lot of xenophobic tendencies, but also they work relationship is weird for me. I also hate that idol hype there, and find it quite scary.

Central America/Caribbean
- Cayman Islands

South America - Brazil

Europe - Germany or Sweden. Can't decide, but i like where i live too.

Africa - RPA, is there any other choice?

Oceania - Australia. But New Zealand looks fine too.

North America: USA given im already there...if I choose anywhere in the continental us/alaska, it would be Oregon.

Europe: The Netherlands given it is a very liberal country with lots of warm people.

Asia: Israel, I'm of purely Jewish blood (albeit im an atheist) so I'd fit in ez, plus I've been there despite what you might see on the news, its actually a nice place to live outside of Gaza and the West Bank.

Oceania/Australia: Probably New Zealand, amazing scenery and interesting people.

Africa: Morocco, in contrast to Israel, yes this is a Muslim/Arab country, but I pass completely as a white American and Morocco has a healthy mix of European and North African culture. I also speak Spanish so id be able to use that to get around somewhat.

Latin America: Brazil, its just a really liberal thriving country where you can really go by the idea of YOLO (danger and excitement around every corner lol)

North America- U.S. already live there, no problems with how it works.

Europe- Germany. I love the language, culture, and the very rich history it has. Plus I have a few friends over there.

Africa- South Africa

South America- I'm tempted to say Brazil but am not too certain. I've never really had the desire to go to South America.

Oceania- Australia. Looks beautiful. But then again, New Zealand is gorgeous too, and they have hobbiton.

Asia- Japan, I like the culture and I like people, Japan has a lot of both. oh and I love Japanese food haha

North America- I would choose Canada as it seems to be a nice place to live where as there are too many things that anger me about USA politics for me to live there.

South America- I think i would go to Brazil for the beaches and has a fairly high standard of living if you have enough money.

Europe- I currently live in the UK and like living here but if i had to move I would go to Germany as there is family there or Denmark as they have a great standard of living.

Asia- It is a toss up between Japan and South Korea my only reason for not 100% japan is the aging population and economy stumbling v. the up and coming South Korea.

Africa- It would be South Africa as at the current point in time it seems one of the few countries that are stable in Africa and also has amazing wildlife.

Australia- I would live in New Zealand as I can pretend it is lord of the rings all the time, they have killer observatories and there are a lot less things trying to kill me like there are in Australia
