I haven't been but my friends took their newborn son and enjoyed living life in paradise for a few years. It looked amazing.

La Réunion is officially part of France even if it is in the Indian Ocean. So is St-Pierre & Miquelon (off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada).

These places are part of France sort of like the way Hawaii is part of the U.S.

I'm not surprised that no one has picked Lebanon, though I'm sure someone will now check the box just because I said so.

And I picked France, but I'm starting to wonder if I should've picked Switzerland or Luxembourg. I briefly considered Belgium but too many people say Belgium is boring.

Actually Lebanon is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
It has great mediterreanean climate, nice culture, great food, beautiful landscape (mountains, ocean) & much more.
Lebanon is not that much popular in North America, but has millions of visitors from other parts of the world.

The reason why I do not think anybody picked Lebanon is because the people living there are Arabs, and that there are many other choices too.
For example an American would rather live in France or Quebec, than an Arabic-French Lebanon.

Belgium is great. And one of the things that makes it great is it's location, you are so central to all the other European countries. A quick train ride gets you to so many places from Belgium. Brussels is actually a really fun city, partly because there are so many young expat professionals there.

Wow, I wrote a few sentences in French and it was deleted.

Oh Well, I figured you could speak French in a French thread, or Spanish in a Spanish thread, Italian in an Italian thread, etc., etc.

All I said was I would like to live in France and/or Québec.

I would pick the south of France somewhere, or the Bordeaux region.
