Dreams are still, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Why?

I'm sort of split on this one. I love where I live already but the only thing I may change is to own property on the ocean. But let's assume this question means somewhere other that where you live now, so....

I would most likely go for a cooler climate instead of warmer. I'm in NW Washington state so am used to a temperate, marine climate. But I've always wanted to try Alaska. Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia or Scotland would be options too. Sheesh...I can't seem to pick one. OK, give me Nova Scotia for one year and then we'll see how I like the cold. OK, let me try again... if I want hubby to come along I will choose New Zealand. It looks a lot like Ireland, which I love, but without the political hassles.

I give up... turn smilewinkgrin

Pacific Grove, CA. (I used to live there.) It's called "The last home town
in the United States." Oh, it's cute. Everybody paints their small house
bright colors. One artist painter actually painted his house Amesthyst! The
Pacific is a special shade of blue there and the flowers are unlike any
I've ever seen. The weather is p-perfect. The people are all friendly having
never had the problems that you read about in the papers. They all seem
to be wealthy, arty, and happy. They took the best of the Hippies and
landed in Pacific Grove. We lived right up the street from the Monterey,
We lived there for less than a year and everything was hunky dorry except
OUR HOUSE STUNK REALLY BAD. I gagged. There is a lot of water collected under
the soil, through the ages it's made the soil wet and nothing smells worse.
"It was the best of time and it was the worst of time."
Ok... so that place didn't pass.
Where would I live? Hearst Castle. I'd make money by having my employees give tours. I'd live
in a hidden area on the grounds so as to avoid publicity.
The weather there .... AHHHHHHHHHHH! Such beauty. yeah

My ex neighbor was from New Zealand and he hated it. He said that is why he chose to come to the states but he never told me why he hated it. All I know about New Zealand is from what I have seen on Xena: Warrior Princess :0)

If I could live anywhere, where would I like to live? Hmm I'm from Michigan and I love my state (just not the economy at the moment) so I am not sure I would want to leave Michigan. But I love the USA so it would be within the US - maybe Missouri. The conditions of wherever I wanted to live would have to be the same as Michigan but maybe have the winters be less brutal.

I would live in Paamaul Mexico.
I love the people, the weather, the ocean and beach. I love being close to the Mayan ruins and the exciting night life should I ever be able to dance again.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

tongue  Well I've lived in Great Britain and I loved it but it was in the late 70's so things have changed. But my dream destination would have to be an island, tropical, rain forests and the ocean right outside my front door. I live in So. California right now so we can get to almost any type of climate with just a short drive, which is nice. But I'd much rather go native somewhere warm and green with crystal blue ocean views. Oh, when can we go?
