If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Oregon or Ohio
Somewhere in the mountains 😍🌄 but also close to civilization cuz ya girl needs her Starbucks and Target.
FLORIDA!!!! You live at least ten years longer. Everyday is beautiful. (No winter) You wear nothing but shirts and polo shirts, no socks, no shoes, just sandals. (I do have one tie, one jacket and one pair of socks for funerals.) Water and beach everywhere. Affordable housing out west. Great food and restaurants with early bird specials and lots of Tito’s Vodka. ( On the rocks or for Bloody Mary’s). Every women wears a bikini, whether she should or not.
FLORIDA IS BETTER THAN HEAVEN, YOU CAN DRINK HARD LIQUOR AND NO HARP MUSIC!
Likely FL. Somewhere warm with water.
NYC in the US.
In the world? North London
America has always been my home, but if I had to choose to leave I would go to either Japan or Thailand since I’m pretty proficient in those two languages.
Norway, 2nd choice would be SoCal. Specifically Dana Point on Beach rd
Montana, South Dakota, or Alaska.
I like it peaceful and I don’t like the heat.
Not where I need A/C a lot.
Arizona....though I have not experienced a summer there
Right here in Texas where I've been for 36 years. I had my fill of the north for the previous 30 years.
Not too hot?
We may actually hit 106° this week, but it's a dry heat, and it's remarkable how easily you get used to it once you move here. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs where it was sometimes 18° below in the winters, and I'll take dry heat over wet cold any day!
Besides, everything is air-conditioned here, so you don't have much reason to be out in the heat for long.
Southern France because it’s beautiful. The people are friendly. Best vacation of my life.
I CAN live anywhere I want. Right now I choose Silicon Valley. Tomorrow? Who knows?
North Africa, because I love the rich culture, the Mediterranean climate, and the rich possibility for revolutionary organization. No crackers like here.
With that also comes extreme income inequality, and the very real threat of civil unrest.
That's sorta what I meant by possibility for revolutionary organization. The people are susceptible to it. I want to be able to support them in their struggle.
Because it's fucking awesome.
I would live in Selena Gomez ass like a hermit crab.
Tianjin, China 😎
I don’t even know. Too many good ones
I’m quite happy where I am, but if the oceans keep rising I may at some point move to SC.
A small house in a wide open field in the Midwest or somewhere in Poland.
Peaceful, quiet, and a beautiful landscape.
Anywhere on a lake.
A farm in New England.
Arizona, specifically in the Tucson or Phoenix metro areas. Although I was born & raised in California, I've been an Arizonan at heart since the age of 5. It was at that age that I first laid eyes on the Grand Canyon State & I fell in love with it instantaneously. Moving back here in January 2017 was the fulfillment of a nearly lifelong dream.
My favorite weather is cool, overcast, and rainy. So that keeps me out of the western states :-)
While I lived in AZ my favorite weather was cool, overcast and rainy. Now that I live in the northeast my favorite is hot, dry and sunny. 😕
Ha! Yah, it does often work that way. I’m burning up in DALLAS. It’s so hot here! I’m dying to go up north where it is cooler.
My preferred climate has always been extremely hot, arid, and sunny, so Arizona is a perfect fit for me. As for you Daniel, you might want to consider relocating to the the Pacific Northwest. You’ll love the climate up there. 😉
That’s what everyone tells me. I’ve been there, and I do like it. But I want to experience New England before I make a final judgment.
I went to the temperate rain forest in Juneau, AK for zip lining, and it was awesome! 55 degrees, misty rain, overcast, and the giant conifer trees were stunning.
About ten miles west of where I live right now, in Newport Beach, CA. Beautiful, fun place. Kind of a zoo in the summer, though, but worth it.
Somewhere in Japan. I really like the country and its culture. In some ways I like it more than the United Stages.
I’d love to see the Japanese gardens when the cherry blossoms are blooming.
I'll throw my two cents in. Probably back home in San Diego, California, or maybe Los Angeles or Las Vegas. Always wanted to try Hawaii, too.
Wow, so you're a San Diego native too? Small world! Which part did you grow up in?
Well, San Diego county, anyway. San Marcos and Escondido, if you've heard of those.
I’ve definitely heard of those because I grew up in North County too! Lol! In fact, my first few years of high school were spent in Escondido (San Pasqual High). I’ve also lived in Scripps Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, Sabre Springs, & City Heights. My whole family was raised there too (I’m a 3rd generation native San Diegan), so I know the whole metro area like the back of my hand. There’s no way I would ever want to move back there though.
Wow! Like you said, small world! Was there something you didn't like about it? I miss it so bad, the tacos, In-N-Out, the weather, the cool music around that area, etc.
I don’t miss the left-wing politics, the high cost of living, the high taxes, the marine layer (June gloom sucks! I want sun!), and the restrictive gun laws. I can still see why others find the city attractive though. It’s a beautiful place. As for the tacos, we get those in Arizona too, so I don’t miss them as much as I thought I would. I’m sure it’s a different story up there in Toronto though. I’m sure they can’t make a good fish taco to save their life! Hell, nobody north of L.A. County knows how to make good Mexican food in my view.
Ah, yeah, I see what you're saying. Although I never met a whole lot of super left-wing people while living there, my family is republican and most of my friends were independents like myself. Yeah, no one here can cook tacos, it's the worst!
The San Diego area was pretty solidly conservative until the late 2000s, but it’s been drifting further and further leftward since 2008. Don’t get me wrong, there are still some conservative pockets left (Rancho Santa Fe, Coronado, pretty much all of East County, etc.) but those are dwindling in number. I feel your pain when it comes to terrible excuses for Mexican food. While I don’t experience that problem here in Arizona, I did previously live in Atlanta for a few years and well, let’s just say that their idea of “authentic” Mexican food is ground beef and nacho cheese sauce (which they pour on everything). It’s an atrocity.
I take it you're a conservative, then? Ground beef is the absolute worst, too. White people meat, lmao.
Yeah. I’m gay and a millennial, but somehow I ended up very conservative in my political orientation (both socially and fiscally).
Huh, a socially conservative gay person? Interesting. I'm bisexual myself and MtF trans (pre-surgery).
Ground beef is fine if you’re making a classic American comfort food, burgers, meatloaf, and whatnot, but use it in Mexican food and you’re committing a crime against culinary arts. Apparently they’ve never heard of carne asada or al pastor.
Yeah, I’m an odd combo of old-fashioned and modernity. I’m libertarian on gay marriage, but hardcore paleoconservative on most other social issues. I also have a strong nationalist populist streak.
I really don't know what I am on certain things. It'd be nice to know.
You’ll find out eventually. Beliefs form and change as we absorb more information. Just stay informed and vote for what you believe in and you’ll be good to go. 👍🏻
Whangarei, New Zealand
Beautiful, near the coast, warm
Palm Springs, CA. Hot, dry and peaceful.
