If you could move anywhere in the world where would you go?



Why?



Have you been there before?



What would you do there to fill your days?

I wouldn't know where to move, but I know where I'd visit to see if I'd like to move there



Switzerland, Anywhere

Czech Republic, Prague... not safe? not sure. but so beautiful...

Canada, Toronto maybe. There's a lot of cities I'd consider



Anywhere but the south. No more for me in a few years... ugh I can't wait to graduate

I'm... so speechless. How ever did you find this place? Congratulations! What an amazing community. I'm sure you'll be very happy here. I know I would



I'd like to live in Asheville, NC for a few years. It's about 6 hours away from here, where all my friends and family are.



Our true goal is to live somewhere in the mountains, in something sustainable, on about 20 acres. We've been planning and looking at properties and locations for years. When we sell our current house (which isn't even on the market yet) we'll be much closer to our dream home

I've always fancied the idea of living in Bath or Cornwell in the UK. My guess is I'll end up back in Australia though - maybe Melbourne this time. Perth is amazing but not quite as exciting as the East Coast.

I'd move to the other side of the river. There's more farmland and less commercialism over there. My two veg restaurants are also over there.



I love the mid Hudson. There's many places I'd like to visit, but not live

I want to live in a vegan friendly town, with cool ass, caring, respectful, warm hearted, non violent people that are open minded and not judgemental about anything at all. No gossiping, no putting down of others due to race, gender, sexuality, lifestyle choices, personal style, income, etc. Does such place exist?

Portland or Eugene, Oregon. Somewhere more rural than I am now so I could have a bigger garden and fuzzy farm critters and a little land for them (and me) to enjoy.

Two of my goals in life are to see the Amazon and see the pyramids in Egypt. I'm not sure if I'd want to live in either places though, so I'm not sure how to answer that.

I'm currently trying to find suitable short term work in the Middle East or India. Not easy!



If I was retired with a good income I'd buy a little little place in the Orkney Islands, just outside of Stromness. Beautiful place. http://www.orkneyjar.com/portfolio/scenes/st/index.html

I'd move back to Vancouver.

Why: I miss it so much. I have family there too. I hate where i am living, it is podunky, dry and dirty

Someplace that's warm and relatively peaceful, preferably with nice scenery.



The rest is largely just details.

The South Of France, it's similar to home (Ireland) with better weather! I'm actually thinking of moving to France in three or four years time

those are all new orleans sister cities. a silly term, i guess, but it's cool that there are that many cities that are so similar to NOLA.

I'd live someplace on the coast of California. Not however my hometown of Santa Cruz. I'm cooking in this valley. I'd love to smell and feel the fog again. That's my kind of weather.

I do plan to live in at least one of the above, but I have to save up money first before I can afford the move.
