Well, I actually would like to live in another country, but that's mostly because I never really felt integrated in German-Society, or the fact, that I never had something like a national-identity. But that's just me.
As for the other things you're right, my brother and his wife were married in Tonder and we're from Eastfrisia in the north-west of Germany and I was like "bring me here blindfolded and I'm sure it's not far from home"
The language-barrier was actually fine, we had a vacation house in a very rural area, I know there's a lot of that, but still I came along with English just fine. Try that in my area and they will just speak German slower and louder :D
