I know that for many of us being an adult and being able to vote in our first real election is supposed to be exciting and make us feel good, but honestly, right now I'm tired of the election. I voted yes, and no I won't tell you who for, but it's just becoming this huge hissy fit between the parties. I just want to go away for a while and relax, move to a different country and finish my education.
So here is a list of the Top 5 Places to Go Depending on the Outcome of This Election:
It's got everything one could want. Beautiful landscapes. History. Great food and who doesn't love food? A population a little over 5 million. It has a high income rate, low poverty, but high taxes. That's a downer, but on a positive note it has a university education for everybody.
Finland is another country that has a population of over 5 million people. This country is making change with little resistants from anybody. it's beautiful and quaint and quiet. There is something there for everybody. For students education is free in college and university. There is also something else to be said about this country-no corruption. I think we could use that right about now.
Now, we all know Switzerland for their watches and their chocolate at times. Recently, studies have shown the country is losing its citizens, but it's still a great place to go because it's a neutral country. So they don't really get involved in other people's affairs. There population is a 8 million. It is required that children attend at least elementary school and then those who wish to go further can and those that go to university takes 4 and 1/2 years and then they can apprentice in their job profession or go to a University of Applied Sciences which takes another 4 years.
Belgium's a nice place with a population of about 11 million. It's the headquarters for the European Union and NATO. It's technologically is advanced and it's a modern country, but still keeps in touch with it's past i the architecture and the cobble stoned streets. It's population is fairly equal when it comes to the age range. Education lets you focus on one area in particular when you get to secondary school and from there can take as long or as short a time as you need.
Scotland has a population of 5 million and most everybody plays golf there. Great place for retirement as well, just something to think about. It's home to the Loch Ness and the myth surround the monster that dwells at the bottom of the lake. It's home to the kilt to. So, be prepared to see people wearing those often. There is music, dance, history, food. There system of education is similar to Belgium with continuing school until university and then choosing a focus point.
So, I gave you some highlights and if you're interested you can do more research, but it's ultimately your decision on where you decide to go. I plan to take a trip though and possibly not return after Christmas. Only kidding, or am I?
