I'd say Montenegro. For non-Europeans: that is the south-western corner of former Yugoslavia, locally named Crna Gora. By now CG is politically independent from mainland Serbia, in case you have overlooked that event in the daily flood of news.
Especially the historical town of Kotor and the idyllic bay named after this town are nearly heaven on earth. Check it out. Also go to the inland UNESCO natural park Durmitor. Exceptionally beautiful nature. Second must-go destination in this mini country is Budva.

I have been to Edinburgh and I loved that city. Beautiful landscape and lively enviroment. If I could I would spend one year in Scotland visiting the lochs and little pretty villages that no one hears about. Ah! I am also crazy about the idea of visiting places like the Orkney Islands, Shetland,... distant, cool places. I would also consider Scandinavia and North Wales.
Japan. It was the first country where I had some sort of freedom (not being stuck with parents or students) I was an exchange student so I ventured out with my host-brother quite a bit and just this freedom alone sets Japan apart from all the other places I've been so far. But it won't last too long though seeing that for now on I'll be traveling solo and I'm sure I'll find a new favorite.
I have been in Hong Kong 3 years ago. At that time, I was 17 and thought that travelling alone to Hong Kong from Austria (I am Austrian) will be a very good experience. And I was right. It was the best holiday I have ever had.
Hong Kong is a great city - I LOVE IT.
The nightlife was amazing.
However, Hong Kong is always busy and I couldn't stay there for more than 2 years.
I have been in NYC - Manhattan just 4 days ago and I think that this is the place to stay much more longer - maybe 5, 6 years.
I really liked it there and I am the kind of person who likes to stay in huge cities, altough I was born in the countryside.
Foothills of the Himalayas definately up there, Malaysia and Jerricoacoara in N.Brazil all very cool, fab places to go,
expect you'll get a lot of random replies to this cos it's such a unique personal thing eh?!
For me it would have to be Fiji. Got married there so maybe that adds to why it holds the special place for me.
I would love to live in Kinsale, Ireland, a beautiful coastal village with loads of charm.
Of course, since I'm dreaming, I would also take a lovely apartment overlooking the Seine in Paris and one of those great mansions on the waterfront of Charleston, South Carolina.

PS Also love Edinburgh, Scotland.
Barcelona, Spain. Coming from Oz and having travelled to over 22 countries, I love the Spanish, or more so the Catalunya culture, the people, the weather, the food, the men. Devine.
one of the coolest places i've seen was Beynac castle in France, it's a medieval castle extremly well preserved, and from the tower you can see a river and other castles close by.. and the day i went there was a storm, and the castle didn't have electricity! so you can imagine, it was awesome! and the landscape was just breathtaking
to live: Barcelona, without any doubt...
