Here-is home.
Prague-is wonderful and cheap.Even though if I lived there I wouldn't find it cheap anymore!

Somewhere near the sea. Maybe New England in the summertime, and Key West in the wintertime.

Right where I am...

I'm pretty happy where I am. I guess I wouldn't object to living on a quiet street in a rambling old house with a nice garden out back, as opposed to the one bedroom apt. where I live right now.

I would have to go visiting places to know for sure.

Anchorage, Alaska. Because it's where all of my family are--and definately better than this place. (Bossier)

I like where I live now. Well, I like the house and the property. I don't like the town I live in very much.

If I could move anywhere, though, I guess it would have to be SanDestin, Florida. It's a resort right outside of Destin, Florida. For the last several years, we've spent a couple of weeks during the summer there. I'd love to buy the house (which belongs to a friend) that we stay in. It's awesome. The whole place resort is very peaceful and beautiful. There's so much to do there. The resort is like a small, secluded town. There's lots of little shops and restaurants, but only people living in or vacationing in SanDestin can go to them, so it's really nice. It's got a private beach. The whole experience there is wonderful. Hurricane season would suck, though!!! We went the end of September through the beginning of October and a hurricane was coming in the day we left.

So, if I moved there, I'd want to keep the house I've got now, so I could come here during hurricanes.

The Oregon Coast, because I love it.

I don't want to answer because I want to keep this place as a paradise. But I know of one where it's tropical, and the music is exciting, the food is awesome, there's tons of natural beauty, and it's only a little dangerous. I'm working on living there.

I'd like to live in manhattan, probably. I'd really like to travel a lot first though. I've hardly been anywhere.

Somewhere in Europe. Maybe Switzerland, because it's beautiful. Or maybe London, because it's a different country but I still speak the language.

The United States of America. No questions asked.

The hinterland of the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia. The hinterland is featured at the bottom of that webpage. It is a rainforested country area in the hills behind the tourist strip of apartments and theme parks. It is cool and has enough rain but is close to the beach and to Brisbane, QLDs capital city. The coast has casinos, shows, nightclubs and great shopping. Right now I live about an hour from the coast in Brisbane.

Hinterland - Mt Tamborine

hym, right here I guess. Naw, I think Id probabbly move. This survey makes it look like wishing I was somewhere else. Look, if I wanted to live somewhere else, dont you think I would move there eventually. Its not like living in a particular spot is like achiving a goal or anything (except for Austraila). Right now, I dont know where I would want to live, um, somewhere in the US. Where ever the job market will take me.

As far as the "(apologies to any aliens)" part, what about humans who want to live on other planets. Besides, this is an open-ended question, so I can write whatever the fudge I want. In that sense:

Fricky BEAUTIFUL! (Got to admit.) Damn I need a vacation.
posted 2-Aug-2003 3:21pm  
I don't think I could pick a place unless my family could come with me.
It would have to be in the United States though.

But I know where my husband would pick: Sandusky, Ohio home of Cedar Point, the greatest amusement park in the world.

I'm really pretty happy where I am. I could fantasize about a beach house, but I suspect that the reality of living in one might tarnish it.

Okay, my answer has changed dramatically since my last vote. I have found the perfect city and the perfect house to buy within that city, for the lowest price...oh my god. THAT is where I want to be. I've never felt more at home in a community. Damn me and my poor credit. Can't get a mortgage to save my life, even though my house payments would be $100 less than what I pay for rent right now. Grrr.

North Dakota. It's in the US,(and therefore does not use the dreaded metric system), and yet is kind of an out of the way place. It's cold, but not so far north that the Sun does not climb very far above the horizon on the winter solstice.

I can only comment on places I've visited or at least have some knowledge of. I'd have to say Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I'm a native of Atlanta, Georgia but I love the weather, the cleanliness and the open-mindedness of the people there.

At home.

Home isn't a place, it's a sense of belonging, of safety, of understanding.

They are close but not quite the same. Been to both the US Rockies and the Canadian Rockies years ago with my dad and he said the Canadian Rockies reminded him of being in the Alps. He was stationed there for 4 years.
