Living in a tree equals living with the insects who also live in trees. I'm sure some people wouldn't mind... but I already know I'm not too keen on the ants who inhabit my wood-paneled apartment. Imagine how many more insects a tree-dweller would be living with!

-Los Angeles, CA. The L.A. scene looks exciting. Plus they have lots of veg*n restaurants, always a plus. No, I haven't been there before, but I'd love to go. It's a good place to get discovered, so I'd probably get myself a couple of gigs at random coffee shops.

-Gold Coast, Queensland. It seems beautiful, and the beaches are so pretty. There would be so many exotic and interesting fish. I haven't gone before, but I've seen photography from there. I think it'd be neat to learn how to surf and get a scuba license.

I would live right where I am. Well, no, I'd move about 5 blocks away to a nice big house on the cliff. Though where I am is pretty sweet. It's not so much about being "content with what I have" so much as there is a reason I moved here and that was because this, out of all the places I've been, is where I want to live already.

one of my best friends was born there(okinawa) and lived there until he was about 10 or 11. he said it was like living in a jungle, it was so hot and sticky and weird bugs and tons of trees.

cry havoc! and let slip the dogs of war.

I would like to check out some quiet place in Canada or Nevada, just to get a little more isolated. The benefit with Canada is that it's not the U.S.! lol.

My grandfather came for the Orkney Islands. It would run a pretty close 3rd choice for me, right after Tasmania (at 2nd). There's really something about cliffs falling down into heavy seas that does it for me, which is part of why I like where I live right now.

1. Seattle, Washington

2. San Francisco, CA

3. England

4. Melbourne, Australia



I want to go back to HK to work for a year or two but the air quality is simply too bad for me to want to stay there for the long term. It's even worse than LA.

Yeah, and being in Costa Rica, can you IMAGINE the size of the insects you'll run into constantly? Down there in the rainforests, you get bugs the size of your hand. I'd die trying to live amongst that. The cockroaches here in Dallas are already way too much for me. The big *******s.







I'd want to live in Switzerland or in Germany.

I've been living in the rain forest for a few days now. Yes, the insects are big, but they have not been in any way a problem. I think with their size comes an increase in their "intelligence" and they seem to know to avoid us humans. They just do their own thing. It is a very comfortable climate and living environment here. We are high in the mountains so it stays cool. I have been outside almost all the time, without any insect repellent, in practically no clothing, and I have not received any bites or annoyances from insects. I lived in Germany and this kicks its butt

I'd move back to san diego if I made more money. It's my home. I love it there. Other than that, I mostly would want to live in places where it doesn't snow. Unless I made enough money to go somewhere else all winter.

I believe a lot depends on the insect species and its attraction level to your natural scent. Mosquitoes in Bolivia LOVED me but ignored most of my coworkers. Then, the mosquitoes attacked my boyfriend but not me while we were blueberry picking in Ohio right next to each other.



Bigger insects might be nice because they can't get through such small spaces, so they'd theoretically be easier to keep out of your living space. But, if they're big enough they can make their own holes, that'd not be so good.

One of their notorious cafes up the road wouldn't go amiss, either.

I want to move to Portland, Oregon SO bad! I never lived there specifically, but I lived on the OR coast for 3 1/2 years and spent a lot of time in Portland.



I'm gonna try to get to Austin, TX next year as an interim move. By the disdain most Texans use when they speak of it ("Moscow on the Colorado"), I think it must be my kind of place.

I'd probably move to Chicago or New York City. I don't like California, I don't want to contribute to the centralization of radical politics in places like Portland, and I'm pretty afraid I wouldn't want to live anywhere but America.

I'm no scientist, so I've always had difficulty understanding these things. My mum and DH never wear insect repellent of any kind, and I wear a strong sunscreen that coincidentally incorporates insect repellent - and they never have mosquitoes while I am practically swarmed. And I seem to have a strong reaction to the bites, with big hard welts coming up on my skin.



My mum says her blood is very acidic so she doesn't taste good

In the US - I'd love to move back to Texas (Austin or Dallas) Since I never get to go anywhere outside North America, I know numerous places I'd like to visit, but not sure if they would suit me for residing there.

You're probably right.



If anyone's interested, I've posted some pics from my Costa Rica trip onto my blog i just setup:
