*Choose 1 country for each letter (where possible).

*Can't use the same country twice because most people would choose their "Live country" in the Holiday category too.

*Some letters might have countries that you really don't like, just think you get paid to live/spend your holidays there and go with the one you dislike the least.

*budget unlimited

I am including Living and Visiting in the Same Category For This:


A: Austria: This was a three way tie and close competition between Austria, Argentina, and Australia, but I had to choose just one this time. All three of those countries have plenty to offer, have intriguing exciting culture, and I already know I enjoy, respect, and appreciate these 3 countries.

B: Belgium

C: Canada/China

D: Denmark

E: None for living, but some options for visiting such as Estonia and Ecuador.


F: FRANCE! It is THE BEST country in the world in a lot of ways, even better than the USA. However, there is plenty of great, valuable, magnificent, impressive, high quality, fun countries in the world and a lot to respect and appreciate for plenty of those countries.

I am surprised by the lack of patriotism by some French people and some don't seem to realize how good they have it but then again excessive patriotism can get delusional and annoying.

I have plans to eventually try to live in France for at least some time, maybe have some of my career there (Architecture or Opening up a cafe/bar), and learn the French language. However, there is plenty of other countries I would find good and satisfying to live in.

G: Germany, even if it is not my favorite European country.

H: None.

I: India.

J: None.

K: Kazakhstan/Kyrgyzstan: Only if I can live there with middle class/high income, but I guess I would want to live in any country with a security base with money. Not sure if this would end up being a good or bad type of adventure with these 2 countries in Central Asia for living in them.

L: Luxembourg: Only if I can frequently travel in France, Belgium, and Germany almost every day. Those 3 international borders are just 20 miles/20km away. I would also frequently visit Netherlands around 50 miles away.

M: Malaysia

N: Netherlands

O: None.

P: None for living but an option for visiting such as Portugal.

Q: None.

R: Romania

S: Spain

T: Thailand

U: USA

V: Vietnam

W-Z: None
