If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why aren't you there already?

Honestly, I am right where I want to be, just west of Denver in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I absolutely love everything about living here, and I would not change a thing, including the weather and the local politics. There's an old saying that goes, "How do you know if you're where you want to be, if you've never been anywhere else?" Well, I have visited many other places, I have lived other places, and I absolutely love living in Colorado.

@CrazyQuilter Oh, winters are easy in CO...I come from upstate NY!!

Somewhere with awesome scuba diving, mountain climbing, camping, backpacking, and a decent amount of non-Trump supporters.

So maybe Washington or Oregon here in the states, or maybe Argentina?

As for why I haven't? Reality. No money to go anywhere, and no job to support myself when I get there. But, there is always vacation time.

Perhaps vacation time , could include some job hunting ? Good luck !

I have traveled to many places in the world. Iโ€™m not sure where my favorite spot is. So i am still actively looking. Perhaps my favorite place is not a destination but the journey itself. I am writing this post to you as I sit in Costa Rica. I am taking a small break from swimming in the Pacific on Jaco Beach. Costa Rica is a beautiful country with very friendly people. I will be leaving here in a few days to return home in Florida. I am already planning my next journey. The search will continue... ๐Ÿ™‚

I would choose to stay right here on my farm, in Central Alberta, Canada. I love my life here, the mountains are only an hour away, it isn't overcrowded, we have free healthcare, I will get a pension and old age security at 65, my family(that i like) lives nearby, no one is getting shot, etc. not much to dislike about it.

I don't have a place that I would like to live because I love traveling too much. I have lived all over the US and am moving to Okinawa, Japan for 3 years the end of this month. When I retire in 12 years, we'll see what happens. Maybe the panhandle of Florida if it is still there.

For me, it isn't where I live, it is who I live near. SamSam and Austin are less than 30 minutes away. I'm where I belong and where I want to be.

3

I'm already there I live 20 minutes from where I lived when I was twelve I love the Pacific Northwest and I could not imagine living anywhere else

Crete, Greece, 1970 - 1975. I put in the years because it has turned into a major crowded, over-developed tourist attraction since I was there. I'm not there yet because my damn time machine is broke...it ticks but the tocks are gone.

3

Bangkok in Thailand. Why am I not there yet? I still enjoy being productive. My job challenges me with a delicate balance between killing me and keeping me young. The minute they kick me out, off I go over there to party non stop until I drop dead...it should take about a week ???

I've lived in a few different places in North America, Canada the US and Mexico, also the West Indies, Bermuda, Ecuador and Nicaragua. All of those places had pros and cons but the most important factor was always my own personal state of mind.
Yesterday is a cancelled cheque and tomorrow is but a promissory note, only today is cash. How you live your life has more to do with you than anything else, where is just a contributing factor but not the crucial one.

Bermuda is a beautiful place . Mom lived there for over fifty years .

I'd wanna live over there but I'm still over here. Know what I'm sayin when I'm sayin what I'm sayin?

2

My home in Ct and I am there now.

2

Iceland; not sure, have a hard time learning new languages

Thought they spoke English there . What language do they speak there ?

@Cast1es Danish

I have lived and traveled around the world and this country.I have landed in the best spot I have seen. The San Juan islands (Washington) have a temperate climate, beautiful nature, strong community and progressive politics.

2

There are so many wonderful places, I could never decide. In my dream world, I would rotate between 4-6 different locations....but work and finances don't allow such frivolity.

2

A bigger city where I could meet more people to aid in the search for that person that would be as excited about me as I them. I haven't moved because I have a son that is also my life and I couldn't imagine moving away from him as I share custody with his other mother.

I'd stay in Michigan...I grew up near Lansing and went to college in Grand Rapids so I'd be open to either Of course I'd LOVE to live in either Ann Arbor or Traverse City!

Right here.
It's a great "home base".
Perfect for us to summer at, and great for traveling to the Caribbean in the winter.

I am quite happy right where I am! The Garden Spot of Pennsylvania.

@Redcupcoffee Medium sized city, surrounded by family farms, many Amish and Mennonite, but many not. Fresh produce all summer, a lively art and arts community downtown. I live on a dead end street, quieter than when I lived in the countryside. I can walk to a major grocery store, restaurants, my doctors office. I am minutes from two hospitals, sports complexes (I donโ€™t go, but I could!), movie theaters. There are still real estate bargains to be found, beautiful old homes, well kept yard, huge trees, nice parks. I moved around a lot with my parents growing up, came back here my last two years of high school and stuck!

@Redcupcoffee Just read your profile. We have a very active LGBTQ community here. We had a Gay Pride festival on one of the streets downtown. I was manning the Planned Parenthood tent for a few hours. Lots of people strolling all day, and it was a very warm day. Thought I would throw that out there if you were shopping for a place to move! ?

@Redcupcoffee About 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia, easy train ride. Trains that stop here go to New York and once a day to Chicago. If you look on Google Map, we are about three hours from Washington, two and a half to Baltimore or Wilmington DE. Lowest unemployment in Pennsylvania. Millersville University, F & M College, Elizabethtown College. NJ, DEL, MD beaches not too far away. Several rail trails crisscross the county. Minor league baseball team. I can send you links to tourist and Chamber of Commerce links.

@Redcupcoffee OK, I sent you some links. And as our state motto says โ€œYouโ€™ve got a Friend in Pennsylvania!โ€ ?

I'd live in Italy. More specifically, Sophia Loren's bedroom. I'm not there already because we haven't met, and I've met countless beautiful leading lady actresses in this life but not Sophia. If we had met, she'd have fallen instantly in love with me and I'd be living there right now. Oh yeah! And Morgan Fairchild would sure be jealous!

2

I canโ€™t afford to live there. And the Republicans are working on making it so I canโ€™t afford to live here. Ere long, I wonโ€™t be able to afford to live. Happy Birthday Month!

@Redcupcoffee Thanks.

Iโ€™ve lived in Italy for 30 years (age 0-21). Then I finished college in Spain (2 years). Then Boston, then Italy again, now Florida.

Each place is amazing in its own way, with inevitable drawbacks. Iโ€™m growing tired of Miami, heat, traffic, fake lips and boobs entering a room a minute before their owner ?

I miss Asia, but I wouldnโ€™t really live there for too long I think... I donโ€™t know... The US is great for working, Europe is tiny and old and beutiful, with languages and history and amazing food... I miss it so much, but itโ€™s harder to make a living there. I wish I could just live in a million places for a year at the time. Iโ€™d start with Asia. Itโ€™s so different.

2

I have been all over the country and I have decided that the Florida Keys is where I am going to finish my life. I am not there already because I am not quite ready to go yet.

@Redcupcoffee It is all internal but it really has to do with the inner peace I feel when I am there. I could go on for pages with the details.

2

the point here is that I "could" live anywhere in the world....but, since I can't live everywhere, I live in one place and do a lot of traveling.

IT's not about moving there, it's about visiting EVERYWHERE.

๐Ÿ™‚

2

Spain or Argentina - no good answer as to why I'm not there yet... But the why I want to is food...

2

I want to live in a little town in Southern Germany. I'm not there yet because it takes money to relocate and also to apply for a visa, citizenship, and passport. I'm working on it though.

That's an excellent choice! We are looking for skilled workers, so if you have the right job with some experience, your dream could come true.

@Matias By skilled, I'm assuming you mean plumbing, carpentry, HVAC, and the like. I'm not one of those, but I have fueled aircraft before.

@Redcupcoffee I really need to get a passport too. At least I would have that.
