I want to settle down in the country of my Parents because I really like it. I wouldn't mind doing the same thing as my father, he immigrated to the Middle East and earned a lot of money so once he retires we can live well in our home-country , I would do it too, but ultimately I want to get back to the country of my ancestors because it's warm, and nice and I don't think I would like living anywhere else (unless it's for a short period of time).

i want to live in northern France because i like France and the houses there are not too expensive compared to Belgium. i live in Belgium now and i dont agree with the urbanization process that is taking place that is enforced by the federal government. for these reasons i am going to move. but my house will not be a permanent place for me to live. it will be my headquarters from where i organize my life. i intend to do some traveling around the world because there are many places i want to visit, but i would just want to own a house before doing the traveling. a house is a persons best asset in my opinion.0

This is a very difficult question for me for two reasons: I am a nomad at heart, and there are too many variables.
I have lived in a few places/ countries over the span of my life, because of which I am what some would call a third culture kid. I don't belong anywhere, but I am kinda accepted everywhere. I am very adaptable to other cultures, and assimilate quickly and make it my home. And nothing brings me more fulfilment that immersing myself in different cultures. So ideally I would like to keep moving homes every few years. Never settle down.
Ofcourse this is not practical, when it comes to having a career, family kids, all of which I want very much too. So I will have to sacrifice my nomadic lifestyle at some point and find some place to settle down at least for a couple of decades. Where this will be depends on my partner, if I find one. It would be a joint decision.
Must haves for this place:
1. Must be cosmopolitan
2. Multi racial
4. Must be a free state, with proper human rights
5. Must be easily connected by flights to the rest of world (cos I love to travel and my family lives all over)
So that would mean it would have to be a major city like NYC, San Francisco, London, Singapore, Melbourne etc...
Now retirement is a different matter, and for that I would probably chose a university town like Cambridge...2
