I'd rather live somewhere warmer, but I'll actually be making a lateral move to a city with similar weather.
I couldnt imagine actually being outside working in that weather. Going for a walk or outside to play in the snow would be okay. I just want to live somewhere that cold so I can sit in front of a fireplace cuddled up, drinking cocoa and watch a movie... Look one direction and see snow and ice... look the other way and see fire! Fun!

So... you are moving??

Australia or a nice little Caribbean island !

I would LOVE to live in Victoria, BC, here in Canada. Perhaps when I retire -- finding a good job there is next to impossible.

I would also like to live on the east coast. One of our Maritime provinces would suffice as well.

I wouldn't live anywhere other than Canada. Though I wouldn't mind visiting Israel for a couple of months.

Ideally I'd like to move back down to Central Jersey, but I'll be staying in North Jersey for a while.

More power to ya! I have lived in central NJ for most of my life (lived in Florida for 5 years) and I can't wait to get out!! In fact, you can have my place!

Although, I must admit I don't know if I can survive without the pizza.


I would love to live in Georgia. Savannah specifically.

Or some tropical island.

I would love to live in Australia, New Zealand, Scotland or Ireland.

Flagstaff, Arizona! I love the southwest. You could go skiing in the middle of winter wearing only a sweater, then drive a couple hours and hike around the desert, then drive a little ways and be in Mexico, then drive a little more and be in California. I love the idea of being around every type of outdoor activity imaginable and having such temperate weather.

In the US, I am firmly planted in/loving/native to Chicago, but I could handle NYC. Nothing smaller than these babies for me, please!

Outside, though, hmmm...I'd love to live in Germany or France, although I've heard Paris is kind of dirty. I'd also love to know my relatives in Italy and sort of know my heritage and where it all started for my family. Also, Sweden. They have IKEA, H&M and public health care and it isn't 9,000 degrees and humid for a solid 3 months. What more could you possibly want in the world?!!?

Oh, man. That's another thing. Chicago-style pizza is so good that I'm known to go freegan for it on occassion. I spent a month in Muncie, IN this summer, which was completely nice except for one thing...I don't know how they find that pizza even remotely acceptable

So I hear ya on the allegance to your home-town cuisine!

My next move will be somewhere with more precipitation (I live right against the Eastern Slope in Colorado, USA, and it's actually classified as a desert). I'm originally from Washington State, right on the Puget Sound. I miss the green and the smell of rain. Here, it's dead and brown 9 months of the year, and that's depressing.

I've always loved Ireland, because my family is very Irish, and it just seems like it would be a good place for me.

Honolulu was nice, but I'm not sure that I could live anywhere that warm. With AC I could do it. I could defilitely live in DC or NYC. After my year in Atlanta, I'm very much a big city gal.

I'd also like to live in Italy for a while, because it seems like such an amazingly vibrant country. The heat, though...

I love it here in California....there's a nice farm on Hwy 101 near the turnoff to Bolinas that I would love to live in, and the city of Colusa is real nice, quiet and very close to my favorite Bingo place.

There are tons of beautiful places in this country, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Florida are high on my list. If I were to move to another country, it would have to be Australia. The people are nice, they speak English and have nice shopping centers.

NEW ZEALAND! I love it! Wouldn't rule out France though
post #43 of 52
Another vote for a private island here!

Failing that, I'd love to live on the Orkney Islands off the scottish coast. Quiet, peaceful, very few people, no skyscrapers, and the temperature never gets too hot.

Anywhere cold would do me really, somewhere you could snuggle up in front of a warm fire with a film and a bottle of red wine (and a cat or two)!

I really love Florida, mainly the east coast where I grew up. In fact. I'd love to raise a family in my little hometown beachtown. The government there has always done an amazing job at keeping Ormond Beach beautiful and tightknit, no matter how much it grows. I'm too much of a homebody to want to move far away, and I can already hardly stand our winters...how would I survive going even the slightest bit north?! I absolutely LOVE to travel though and I would be very depressed if I could no longer travel for one reason or another.

Hate to say it Allie, but I really do not like Chicago-style pizza. For some reason it always makes me feel sick.

Ummm. Ryan???? ShhhhhhH! It was 30 c on Sunday! And the leaves are still green and the grass... Maybe it won't come this year!

*runs and hibernates*

Fantasy: I would live in South America as I hear that you can live there on $4.00 a week. and its beautiful and its hot...I would like to spend my days reading newspapers from all over the world at a sunny outdoor cafe facing the water, talking philosophy and current events with an Ernest Hemingway type wearing a white linen suit and panama hat...He would teach me Spanish in the evenings...and have me sit for him while he paints me...

Ummm. Too much detail ?

Reality: I would likely move to England as I have dual citizenship anyway and wouldn't have to hassle with a Visa. I would live in James Herriots England though and wear rubber boots and muck about the dales.

But let me just say...I AM CANADIAN..for those of you Canucks, you know what I mean

Actually, if I were going to live in another country it would probably be England, partially for that very same reason! Having dual citizenship certainly makes things a lot less messy!

If money were no object, I'd buy a summer cabin in Alaska and a winter penthouse in New York.

Actually, my best friend and I said that when we're little old ladies, we're going to live in a NYC penthouse, surrounded by kitties .

I'd also really like to live in Canada and the south coast of Spain at some point in my life.

I wouldn't mind it. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Madison. In fact, I'm thinking about moving there.

My ex is from Germany. I asked him after I saw this post, and he said he hasn't felt unwelcome here. He did say the weather in Texas was quite a shock when he first got here.

Perhaps somewhere in the Carribean. Considering there's a hurricane head our way today, maybe I should just say somewhere besides here for the next few days.
