    Someplace like Hawaii, up in the hills where it's cooler then the beach but not far from the beach, don't want to travel an hour to get there , surrounded by lots of tropical trees and plants, breezes, and a great ocean view. And no neighbors so close they can read my book while I'm reading it, and I want so much foliage I can't even see the neighbors, off the black top road, either a long drive way or on a dirt road, don't want to hear people.

    If I could live anywhere in the world, I would move every six months to different places around the world.

    Montana. I would like to own a zillion acres and see the mountains out of my kitchen window, the big snows, seeing moose and caribou crossing the highway as I drive. I would like the wide open country.

    That sounds wonderful Amy.
    Truth is, if you could live anywhere, there are too many wonderful places to choose from. maybe saggy's got the right idea, lol.

    You and Saggy are probably right. How about we pick our favorite place to live and then we vacation all over the world. I pick Hawaii for the first trip.

    I'm a beach person at heart - but I like change - so I'm going with the moving crowd. I like to change jobs, I like to change houses, I like to change classrooms . . .

    I don't change my wardrobe often though - got some old stuff hanging in the closet :laugh:

    On a small farm in rural south central Kentucky, raising chickens, growing my own food, and living a mostly self-sufficient lifestyle.

    My ultimate home would be nestled in the Northern Rockies, in a valley with like five rivers running into it, in a nice hippie town where I can get a bacon & artichoke heart pizza & a cappuccino, and in 15 minutes later be on a winding dirt road up to one of the several alpine lakes that would most assuredly be accessible. It would snow & be cold 3/4 of the year, and......

    HEY !!!!!!!!

    Take Me There Now!

    North Georgia mountains near and around Blairsville. I just can't get enough of that place. Fall foliage, the sorghum festival and oh the apples.

    Good-bye Florida, I can't help it but your sea waves no longer call to me. :tear:

    my dear friend Curtis wants it to be cold 3/4 of the year and I am a beach person!

    This reminded me about a gal that I talk to most days via IM - we are selling buddies. She lives in Northern Canada. One day I mentioned that it was still in the 90's here and she said that they'd had the heat on for over a month. I love the internet!

    I have to say - I do love Ireland. People come to holiday here and we get to live here. I even love our town.

    The only thing better would be if I were pastoring a self-supporting indigenous church.

    I'd like to live for a year or so in England. I loved it when we visited, and there is so much to see that it would take at least a year just to see the things I have read about. Ten days was just long enough to make me want to see more!

    I kinda like Saggy's idea, too. I'd also like to live in the Rocky Mountains, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Paris.

    I live in south central Ky, lived on a farm for many years, it ain't as great as it sounds, you may or may not eat depends on this years weather, and for the past 3 years veggies have not been good here.
    But it would be nice, big farm, way off the black top highway, dirt road, old farm house(with real heat!), you know, something you'd see in old paintings or something.

    Paris would be nice, Tuscany we'd love, in a small old world village we saw once on House Hunters international. We like places that just feel old, we don't like modern at all.

    Our friends who have moved there love it and they say it is beautiful. Of course, I think they filmed "A River Runs Through It" only during the summer. It is way too cold during the winter.

    I'm right there with you!!


    YES!! YES!!!

    Won't you both be my neighbors??

    OK - now the biggest problem is that I'm unequally yoked. My husband is a summer/water/sailing guy. So unless there's a VERY large body of water where in that long, cold winter, he can do some nice summer sailing, it's not going to happen. :(

    We are SUCH opposites. It's just getting cold here. He's depressed because the boat will be out of the water in less than a month. We were just talking about having to de-provision the boat for the season (HUGE job). He's so sad. But ME on the other hand? I'm LOVING the colder weather. I look at a tree that is changing colors and I get all relaxed. I long for the fall and winter - the cold weather - the wood fires in the fireplace - flannel and fleece - frost on the windows - blankets on the horses (OK, can skip the having to hand carry water to them outside but...). There's nothing better. I'm getting giddy though - horses have their winter coats a full 2 months earlier than normal. I'm thinking it's going to be a bad winter. I'm rejoicing, DH is crying. LOL

    Two miles from the village, quarter mile lane through 18 acres of hardwood on a 100 acre estate. All four seasons in Eastern Ontario, Canada. Been here 36 years and love it. No plans to move anywhere else.

    Cheers,

    Jim
