Belgium. the waffles are awesome, the scenery (to me) is terrific, and it's easy to travel around Europe from there.

That one time I went to Switzerland I was a kid but I remember it was pretty, orderly, clean, yummy pastries and you didn't even need to lock your bike! like what???!!! And i'm told trains run on time! -what kind of miracle might that be?- :O
-Italy has yummy food too, it's pretty too but far far far far far far away from clean and orderly and five locks on your bike might not be enough, from personal experience-

I've considered England or Belgium. I'm from America originally, but I have both German and English blood somewhere down the line in my heritage, so it'd be nice to see more of the cultural aspects of them and see both their beautiful points, and their negative points.

England, since I have duel nationality(British and American) It would be much easier to move there, I would always be able to stay with some of my cousins or what not, like I had in the past when visiting. Second choice would probably be Switzerland, no real reason behind it.

I'd love to live in England, because I really like the country and everything, but if it's about work, I'd definitely go to Switzerland cause it's close to Austria (where I live righ now) and the economy is pretty good there. And they do a lot of scientific research  so I guess it'd be easier to find a job there for me.

You know what, I think I'd rather take FRANCE haha, because 1. I'm of French descent, and 2. I can actually speak the language (for the most part, I've gotten a bit rusty).  I honestly don't know much about Switzerland other than the cost of living can be really high, but working in bars and such can earn you tons in tips (my old French teacher did that for a summer), and Belgium has really amazing chocolate, and they tend to speak a combination of French and German.

I live in the UK right now and even though I like it, I would not want to live here all my life or work here. For reasons I cant explain I feel mainland Europe is nicer for living, friendlier and more open-minded. Belgium is really international (at least Brussles) and warm and welcoming from what I heard, and Switzerland is so good to live in, but sooo expensive :/

I was in Belgium last week to visit the institution I'll probably work in a future (it's between Gent and Bruges), but I've also been accepted in England and Switzerland, so it's time for me to consider a decission.

I'd say England, one I was born there (moved to America when I was 2) and I wanna see where I use to live and stuff. But I'm kinda afraid, is it just a stereotype that all English people hate Americans or is that true? My dad whose American said that it was true because when he lived there he was made fun of constantly because of that.

English people are zenophobic, so yes. Americans are made fun of here very often and get badly ridiculed. But then again, it depends where in England you go.

I've never really been there, but considering it's close proximity to London, house prices will be 3x the regular price, and there's a good possibility of high crime rate. But then again, I am basing this off how London is nowadays. There are lots of poor immigrants around London with no sense of morals so it's become a dangerous place, not to mention the aggressive British people.

Oh really D: well my parents and I were living in Cambridge at the time... I don't know if that's a bad place or not but my dad says they like to make fun of your American accent and everything there and be really mean (but we did have some random English people have thanksgiving at our house there once XD whoooo turkey!)
:T I really wanna go there but now I'm just so scared that people would make fun of me! >.<

You find nasty zenophobes everywhere, but tourists are less likely to be teased methinks. In English schools, kids are awful. I got teased for speaking proper Queens English and not slurring my words like they did! But like I said, it depends where you go. London is full of hate, here in Nottinghamshire people call it 'crime city', so obviously not a nice place to be! But the Isle of Wight at the very bottom of England is beautiful! Mostly nice people (The mean ones are probably tourists), nice weather, the only bad thing there is the drivers!

Ah ok! It's just I've heard that if they hear your American accent they'll automatically speak down to you and speak slower like your some mentally challenged 7 year old... I dunno. If I go I hope nothing like that will happen and ill just be chill with it I guess. Im just gonna be respectful and try to get that bad american stereotype out of people's heads, I mean not all Americans are loud and fat and love guns and hamburgers... (I do say dude and bro waaay to often though.. ;^^) And the funny thing is my parents since my dad got stationed in england for like 4 years now calls the vacuum the Hoover and candy sweets so I do too and when I tell my friends "oh I'm just gonna hoover" or "do you want some sweets" they're all like whaaaaaaaa? XD then I have to explain *sighs*

Everyone has a habit of taring everyone with the same brush. With the Americans shown on TV it's not a wonder why people think that way, but I know plenty of Americans over DA who are well spoken, smart and take care of their looks! (Dude and bro is fine, better than the street talk where I am!) I have to explain words to my American friends, too! There's a lot of difference, and I will warn you using the wrong term may get people over here riled (Which is silly over a colloquialism!) but you shouldn't be too worried, people inherently find ways to dislike people, being ugly or fat etc, but people can't help it if they're American or not! So if anyone does bother you about it then you should know they're just misinformed lowlifes!

Well I knew an African kid at school who was taught American English in school, and everyone laughed when he said 'cell phone' as opposed to 'mobile phone'. (Wanker is a pretty common English insult so say it as you please!) Side walk is pavement, and one of the worst ones is English people hate how Americans pronounce 'aluminium'. It's typically said 'al-loo-min-um' over there, but here it's 'al-u-min-ee-um'. But like I said, you can't help speak how you were taught to, and if you spend a long time anywhere you'll pick up the pattern of speech! I wouldn't fret too much, as i'm sure you're not coming over for schooling! (Where most bullying happens, obviously!)

England, but I'm afraid living expenses are quite high :/ 
I've once been in Brussels, but I couldn't quite get used to the language (e.g. never had French in school and the accent wasn't really understandable imho :aww:
As for Switzerland ... no idea xD Here, there is a saying they all act high-and-mighty .. so England England England <3
