I did 21 years in the military, I can never get bored. I am constructing a new business model for my wife, what she wants I cannot say but it is a very original idea, a great risk, we shall see as more detail is added and formulas are rechecked,

My short time in the army was only the TA, great moments of excitement joined up with a lot of nothing to do.

Now I am over worked and underpaid but rarely bored.

My choice would go to the island nations in the tropic regions.

This is a difficult question, because so much of what has happened in my life was a direct result of being born in the USA. In some ways, I wish I could have been born in Wales so I would have had more exposure to the culture that my grandfather left to find a better life in the USA. In some ways, I wish I had been born in China to have had exposure to the language and culture.

But I think that my environment made me who I am today, and while there are things I am trying to change about myself, I know that I would not be the same person I am now if I had been born somewhere else and raised in a different culture.

I think your question is an interesting one, but difficult to answer. I am an identical twin, and I am often asked "What is it like being a twin?". I have no idea how to answer that question because I have never not been a twin. Similarly, I am not sure how to respond to your question because I do not have enough experience living in another country to be able to answer your question.
