If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be and why?

If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would be somewhere less developed, low population, simple government and with beautiful nature. I’m not sure if a place like that exists or where that may be, but some place to escape the materialistic industrialized America. Something that is a major concern of mine is the state of the environment around the world. I’d love to visit somewhere with minimal human manipulation of nature. Our environment is something bigger than any human made issues, economics, foreign affairs or everything we stress about will be quite pointless the day we run out of resources and can’t survive.
