Top 10 Countries to Move to if Donald Trump Is Elected

If you’ve been reading the news lately, you can probably tell that there’s very little likelihood that Donald Trump will be elected President. At the time of writing, Trump (thankfully) had a mere 12.5% chance of being elected to the highest office in the land, according to popular election blog FiveThirtyEight.

However, stranger things have happened, and many countries around the world have capitalized on the situation to encourage American tourists to at least visit their countries, dangling the possibility of a move there if Trump is elected. So why not hedge your bets?

Here are a few countries that are some of the happiest in the world, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Check them out, so you can fuel your wanderlust and quell your election fatigue at the same time.

Canada

Our neighbor to the north is larger geographically, but much smaller in terms of population — Canada’s population of roughly 36 million is about 9 times smaller than the current population of the United States. This means plenty of space, and resources for everyone.

Canada also has publicly funded healthcare — something that Trump has criticized in the past. But honestly, who doesn’t like free doctor’s visits? Sure, the system can be slow, but it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg just to fix your arm or your leg.

Canada also has the benefit of being a much safer place to live — there were a mere 505 homicides in Canada last year, versus over 12,000 in the same year in the United States. Plus, if you move to Canada, it’s just a quick trip for your friends and family to come visit.

Australia

Many people living in North America have this image of Australia as a crazy party country, where people go to get smashed and lie on the beach all day. While this is definitely true of some Australians (who doesn’t love a cold Fosters?), there’s a whole country of people that this stereotype is overlooking.

This year, Australia actually topped the OECD Better Life Index. The country ranked extremely high in quality of life, with people living around two full years longer than the global average. Plus, most Australians are actually engaged in the way their country runs. Their voter turnout was over 93% in the last election — something unheard of in the States, where the average voter turnout is around 60%.

Sweden

Sweden is a country located in Scandinavia that boasts a gorgeous countryside as well as a happening urban city life.

A relatively small country, Sweden has a population of just over 9 million. Sweden provides healthcare for all its citizens, and regularly ranks towards the top of lists tracking the happiest and most prosperous countries in the world. Swedes are also very well educated — 87% of adults have at least a high school diploma.

Plus, many of their citizens claim to be descended from the Vikings, which is pretty damn cool. If Vikings and winter sports are your thing, head over to Sweden to start your new post-Trump life.

The Best Canadian Hockey Towns

Canada and hockey go together like peanut butter and chocolate. If you didn’t know that, you either don’t watch hockey or you’ve never been to Canada in the wintertime. Just like any sport, hockey has its hotbeds. Coincidentally, each and every one of the cities and towns mentioned in this article claims superiority. Mind you, in entirely different ways. Some cling to a long and storied history. Others flash around their laundry list of NHL alumni, current Hall of Famers, and future Hall of Famers. Today, we’ll take a look at the best of the best. Lace ‘em up, tape up your stick, and put the foil on. These are the best hockey towns in the Great White North.

Graduated Traveling: 13 Trips to Take After Graduating

While some may be anxious to jump into the workforce and get cracking on that career, as the old saying goes, “you can always make money, but you can’t always make memories.” Instead of diving into the online job ads, hit the travel sites then hit the open road or the friendly skies.
