    Canada, Sweden and Southern Germany I can definitely recommend.

    We're thinking of moving to Lisbon right now. Anyone have an opinion?

    Lisbon - great place but teaching there isn't well paid at all.

    Loved Lisbon - great culture and buildings but did not find it the cheapest place when visiting and apparently the rents are high, thanks in part to Air B n B and second homes so I hear.

    I teach in Lisbon and I get paid very well.

    The best place in the world? A place where you have friends. Here are Mrs. Hippopotamus and our dear Chinese friends, Bill and Julia, plus DIUDIU, the naughtiest little dog in the Middle Kingdom.

    Happy days.

    1. Italy
    2. Australia
    3. New Zealand
    5. USA-San Francisco, New York mainly.

    I love Italy and it's the retirement plan anyway! Australia is fantastic-I love the laid back outdoor lifestyle.
    Not been to 3, 4 or 5...yet but always wanted to go. Just appeal to my nature i think. Also Iceland....I like the cold!

    ok, now I have wanderlust!

    England, an alternative history where Thatcher lost the 1979 general election...
    There would be a whole host of positive consequences
    the billions in North Sea oil revenues are not squandered
    Unions would still have some power to protect workers.
    Banks would not have been deregulated after 2007 crash we would have been able to let those that gambled with our money go to jail and

    Well it is a fantasy, after all....

    And it would still p*ss it down every day.

    And you'd still be trying to teach the UK's feral youth

    The post asks about living. Teaching in the UK is not living.
    You might only be a teacher, I have other strings to my bow.
