Living in Europe - where?

If you were to live someplace in Europe - where would you and why?

PARIS!!

It's a beautiful city!! I've been there three times, its romantic & just a place to fall in love with!!
The french accent is lovely & it's just a meltingpot of different cultures.

I'd love to name my future daughter Paris, but you know-the other Paris kinda ruined that name..

Maybe Spain. Or London. Or Italy. Hmm, it's hard to decide!

Yeah I like the name Paris too, thanks a lot Paris Hilton I guess you could always name your son Paris, it is a boy's name too (like Paris in the Trojan War myth).

Italy or Spain would be my top choices. Germany would be nice too.

I'd be ambivalent and scared about England or France... maybe because I have lived in England and spent summers living in France.

I'd choose Italy or Spain because I can get by in the language, there's work in my field, my EU citizenship would work for me there, and I really enjoy the lifestyle, culture, sense of style, way of eating, drinking, the music, etc. etc. etc. and the weather is pretty decent.

Amsterdam, Florence, Paris, Rome, Nice.

I would love to live in any of those beautiful cities and think that I would thrive on the architectural beauty, diversity, culture, food, landscape, people, etc...

Italy. I just love Italy. and I love the language and I would be able to put my four years of Italian to use.

I really enjoyed the time I spent in Spain as a teenage exchange student but I think I want to be closer to the mediterranean and Italy stole my heart years ago.

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
London, Sheffield, or Cardiff. If I were to live anywhere in Europe it would have to be the UK.

It's funny that someone posted this because I'm debating moving overseas. I had some major changes in my personal life (it happened today, but I have toyed with the idea in the past) and I don't have a reason to stay here any more. I don't know if I could do it financially or realistically since my family is here and I don't know if I'd feel comfortable being that far away from them. But right now, I'm thinking that living in London (a city that I absolutely adore) wouldn't be so bad.

I have no idea how to even research getting a job overseas....any thoughts??

I really liked Budapest when I visited there. It was very easy to get around and the apartments looked awesome. There was a energetic and multicultural flavor that you get from bigger cities but to me it wasn't that large at all.

I think I'd like the UK and it would be a fairly easy adjustment as far as lanuage and work.

Otherwise I'd probably go with Sweden or Estonia, since I have family in both counties. I don't speak Swedish but I do Estonian. Sweden would probably be better from a quality of life stanpoint ( they're good on family benefits and support) but Estonia is a rapidly growing and changing nation that has a lot more western influences than the other Baltic areas.

Scandinavia is beautiful and I would live in any number of the progressive and gorgeous cities in that part of the world. Not sure about diversity, but depending on the circumstances, I might not care (if I had sufficient resources to travel, and lived with someone I loved).

I would also live in various cities in Japan, Korea, China and perhaps the Phillipines.

Actually I'm living in Germany right now. Its pretty cool. It's beautiful. I love the experience of being exposed to the culture and all. I just wish I spoke the language. Also its nice to be able to travel all over Europe for cheap (fly with Ryanair).

Either England or France. I have a ton of family in the former and used to work in the latter.

Denmark (great people). Or maybe Finland, for the nice, long winters.

When we went to London, I was pretty much ready to buy an apartment right then and there, and THEN start looking for a job. It just felt like such a good fit.

Germany and Austria are lovely too, but I don't speak the language, so that might be an issue. I had better luck in Italy and France. And I don't want to take anything away from the, but they didn't feel nearly as comfortable, if you know what I mean.

Croatia - lived there as an exchange student for a year before college. Lovely people, wonderful beaches, historic and simply beautiful - plus the incredible food. The rest of Europe is close, there is great skiing nearby but not a whole lot of English speakers. Croatian is not impossible but hard to master - after a year I could get my point across, read elementary things and speak like a child I would go back in a heartbeat! If you have an opportunity to go overseas and nothing is holding you back I would highly recommend it!
