Well in terms of permanent residency, I would like to do so in Japan. I have gone many times since my mother is from Japan, and there are many great companies in Japan that I would love to work for after I finish my business degree here in the states.
However, out of the rest on the list, in terms of visiting, I would love to visit Italy. Several of my friends have gone and have loved the country (and the food), however, the people not so much which is perfect for me
I could care less about people, my practically #1 priority for visiting any country is to eat their native food.
I have been to most countries in Europe so not interested in this part of the world.
Where I like to visit - any country that has interesting historical places to see like Mexico, India, Egypt, Peru etc. Unfortunately many of those countries are not safe to go to
Where I want to live - on a small, isolated island.
Contrary to popular belief, most countries in the Middle East are fine. Even after September 11, I have gone to Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Palestine many, many times with not one single problem. Countries like Turkey and its neighbors are also great as well, although I have only been told this by friends. However, seeing that they are pretty Westernized and close to Europe would infer this anyways.
