    As a Canadian I obviously agree, but our country's standards can vary due to our size and geographical range. I probably would choose British Columbia over Ontario. Would rather deal with more rain than cold/hot weather extremes. Plus they can grow these kind of trees!

    I'd pay to live in Germany again. My dad was in the US military and was stationed in Germany twice, so I've lived in it for around 5-6 years. It was awesome there, and I would love to visit it again.

    I traveled to Germany many years ago, ironically I think I've covered more ground in Europe than my homeland. Wasn't there for very long though since I was just a tourist. I think to know a country one must live and work there among its people. Otherwise it's like Disneyland, a fascinating experience, but ultimately one that just touches the surface. Now things are different for me and traveling wouldn't be very comfortable. If I could go to any place it would be Singapore, the urban planning there is remarkable. Bearing the heat and humidity might prove difficult though.

    Heat and humidity are nothing to me, since I live in Louisiana. But I agree with you. Tourism doesn't give you a real idea about the culture, people, and lifestyle. Living in Germany taught me a lot (not including the language, never learned anything but a few words, and I've already forgotten them), and it sorta expanded my palette when it comes to understanding different people, y'know?

    Norway is really nice. Both the nature and our great living standard. School is free hospital are mostly free (You gotta be Under 16 for free medical treatment) And we have great employment agency. But in general the country is really expensive while in Germany a beer costs about 2.50 € In Norway its like 4.5 € So yeah great country but expensive.
  9. bad country. don't come here.
