For me, down in Melbourne..... it's the most livable city in the world, and I really like it, and know more about veg places down there than I know about here in Sydney.<br><br><br><br>
Then there's New Zealand...... a beautiful country, and they gave us Split Enz, Crowded House and The Lord Of The Rings movies.<br><br><br><br>
Finally, Scotland (although from what I read the UK really is going to hell, and Blair is too much of a Bush-Buddy (more so than Howard)). It'd have to be Scotland, not England (the Scottish blood in me runs hotter than the English blood).<br><br><br><br><i>Edited for a typo.</i>

As far away from my family as possible.<br><br><br><br>
I was thinking Oregon, but, with my luck they come visit. So Germany seems like a better candidate, since my family has a fear of traveling over seas. Seriously, I would really like to move to Oregon and Germany. Some other places may include NYC, California, Washington, Hawaii, and the UK.

My family could easily visit me in Melbourne (my Grandfather's nephew lives there, too, but that's okay).<br><br><br><br>
In England and Scotland I have HUNDREDS of relatives (basically, I have no worries about finding somewhere to live).<br><br><br><br>
But in New Zealand? There are none (although it's quick to get to.... quicker than Perth).

Let's see some include Tuscany, the northern coast of Maine, Colorado, A small island off the coast of Georgia. I'd like to buy my place in NYC back, not to live full time but just for when I travel on business. The south of France, Stokholm, or maybe on the east coast of Ireland. I could probably think of a thousand more, including Montana, Mexico, New Mexico , and so on.....

there's a lot of cool places out there..and i don't want to mention mine for fear of them being discovered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
in general, the pacific NW is da place. i also really like certain areas in maine, vermont and NH. i really just want to live righ tin the middle of the black hills and i may be able to but maybe now isnt the time for that. i've traveled a lot and have fallen in love with quite a few places, and would be happy with a lot of them.<br><br><br><br>
hawaii is nice too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> i had to be chained and beaten because i refused to leave. i even had a job offer..sigh, i should have just stayed!<br><br><br><br>
gary, indiana is hell.

Somewhere by the ocean... the salt breeze, mesmerizing waves, solitary moonlit walks down the beach alone with my thoughts, the sunrises and sunsets, swimming in the glorious ocean, examining baby jellyfish, building sandcastles and other edifices...<br><br><br><br>
Wow, this sounds an awful lot like what I told one of my friends the other day.<br><br><br><br>
On the other hand, I don't want hurricanes, sand positively everywhere, earthquakes, air-conditioning-induced-power outages, or tusinamis. I think I like being a tourist more than a resident.<br><br><br><br>
Ohio's pretty good. It's average enough to not frequently disrupt my daily activities because of natural disasters. Plus... I've always lived in Ohio. I want to go other places, but I suppose I'll always return here.

My ideal place is:<br><br><br><br>
1. In the country<br><br>
2. No neighbours on either side for at least 10 miles<br><br>
3. Temperatures never go below 55 at night and never higher than 85 by day, all year round.<br><br>
4. Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, lots of snow. By suppertime on Xmas day, it should all be melted and back to 85 degrees.<br><br>
5. No mosquitoes, flies, stingy things (wasps, hornets) and defintely no snakes.<br><br>
6. Sun must set over the lake frontage every night.<br><br>
7. Must have access to satellite reception so I can keep up on the Maple Leafs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Anyone know if this place exists? Please tell me.

Canada. i don't think i'd want to <b>live</b> in any other country but Canada. it's the best country to live in, in my opinion.<br><br>
i would want to visit a ton of other places though, maybe put everything i own in storage and go travel through Europe for a couple years, but not staying in any one place long enough to say i live there.<br><br><br><br>
i also would probably want to stay in Ontario, i rather like it. i can't decide if i prefer city or country though, i like the simple country living idea, but i also like the conveniences of a city. my bf wants to live in the country cause it's where he was raised, so maybe that's where i'll end up, i dunno.

Ideally, i'd love to live in Germany or Japan.. Perhaps even Norway or Thailand. But my German is far from fluent, i only know a few words/phrases of Japanese, and no Norwegian or Thai at all. In fact, tonal languages scare me!<br><br>
So my next option would be the Irish countryside - lovely! Or Canada.. England seems nice as well (not to mention fairly veg-friendly - or so i've heard!).<br><br>
If i had to pick some place within the U.S., it would be anywhere on the west coast or Hawaii.<br><br>
Basically, anywhere except florida! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I find myself longing for a small town. With lots of diversity. With good public transportation. With a good bar. With easy access to veg-friendly eateries and grocers. With very little development. With a good independent bookstore. With progressively-minded people.

that'd be hard to find. where i live now meets most of those but it's not very diverse. mostly white community, but with a fair amount of oriental people thanks to the japanese-based plants.

Tulsa Oklahoma is one of my favorite places on earth. I would love to have a second home there!

I want to go to the city/country/area that those coconuts migrate to.
