Where to live if you had the choice.

A lot of people are complaining about the UK at the moment whether it's the pandemic or Brexit but if you are unhappy and could move anywhere else in the world where would you choose and why.

Eh I'm not too sure...

I'd like to live in a country with steady weather, not changing every few months or every few minutes.

Malta or the Isle of Man. I would like to live on a much smaller island.

Anywhere local without litter strewn streets and near enough for my son to access his support in an area he has only ever known.

I would probably choose Italy as it's a country I like a lot. I like the weather, people, food, wine and the general nice feel it has being there.

If we're escaping Brexit then there is plenty of choice but escaping Covid could be more difficult. I have always fancied Iceland but I don't know if it would be as pleasurable living there for years as it is visiting for couple of weeks.

The sun would be a contender, I could do with a warmer climate and less people, this growing old thing has some drawbacks.

I can think of few places I'd rather live than here in Britain, I know I'm not well travelled, but I think Britains great, although the weather could do with being a bit more predictable, but I think I'd miss it if I lived somewhere with a climate instead of weather.

Until 2 or 3 years ago, I would have said that I would never want to live anywhere else. But somewhere with trees and hills, warmer winters and without all the other nonsense going on here seems a lot more appealing now. Northern Greece or Portugal would be nice, or maybe the Picos de Europa in northern Spain.

I like the countryside and a peaceful existence. If I had to leave this country then Southern Ireland would be on my list of preferred places to live.

I would like to live in Switzerland. No wars !!

Yes Madness. Switzerland is another place I like. I only went for a short visit to the motor show and took in the Hadron Collider and some sight seeing. I was pushing a wheelchair so gave the Matterhorn a miss. I think it would be an expensive place to live.

I live in a shoebox in the middle of the M25 so anywhere would be more acceptable. Previously owner the Monty Python cast - just joking lol.

Some good choices of places to move to but weighing everything up I would want to stay in the U.K.

I would choose the UK over other countries. We must appear to other nations as very self critical online and in the media but I also see a lot of good people and services helping those who are under privileged. I've found it much less caring in other countries.

I couldn't agree more Tsunamiwarrior.
