England for the rain.
The Netherlands .. just because.

Or I’d stick to my little ol’ country ^^

Los Angeles, I’d love to live in America someday and LA seems great.
That or New York City.
@Hibernate England’s rain is great xD

New Zealand. I thinking someplace on the north island like Mt Maunganui – some place not too far from Rotorua.

Or, alternately, some place in coastal Miyazaki prefecture, Kyushu, Japan.

@Paul we have great rains here too .. it’s just that most of the time is raining there .. fresh air all the time.

@geeky_mama you should try Zealand first [in the Netherlands]. It’s much better than New Zealand .. and a lot more history there :P

@Paul Good choices, and I’d suggest adding Chicago and San Francisco for your consideration.
Consider how much you like cars, and driving, and having to drive to get anywhere, everywhere. If you like cars LA is a great town.
If you could care less about the hassle and expense of auto ownership. Then look for good public transportation like NYC, San Francisco and to some extent Chicago.

@geeky_mama stole my idea! I love New Zealand and would live there in a heartbeat, but I would probably choose Christchurch just because I have friends there.

I would also love to live in the island of Kyushu, Japan, but I would choose the city of Fukuoka where I have lived before. I have many friends there and love the city itself.

I’ve thought about this before, and while there are plenty of places I would like to visit, I can;t think of anywhere I’d rather live than where I am now. I’d have a bigger house if I could, but I’d stay in the same city, despite the rain.

The Turks & Caicos Islands! I live in Canada, and we have four very definite seasons here…bitterly cold in the winter and stinkin’ hot in the summer! I have a huge fear of slipping on ice (kind of ironic!), and have been to the Turks & Caicos Islands and did NOT find any ice there other than what was in my beverage. >=D

I’m orginally from the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. I love it there but it is too busy for me now. I’d like to live either on Vancouver Island or somewhere in the Maritimes; perhaps P.E.I. or Nova Scotia where my ancestors are from.

Germany. I love it there.

Because of another question I just answered I’m going with Spain!

SIESTA!

It doesn’t really matter, as long as the people around me are progressive…I can teach somewhere at a university and the politics aren’t shit…so this place doesn’t exist.

If it weren’t for the rain, the Pacific northwest would be high on my list. I’d just like to live somewhere that has a more temperate climate than the one I’m in. Not too cold, not too hot, not too humid, not too dry. No earthquakes would be a plus, too. Does such a place exist?

Either the west coast of Scotland or in the mountains of California. Both have meant more to me than any other place I have ever visited.

@tranquilsea : I have friends who built a home on Salt Spring Island for the exact reasons you mention..and another friend who, as a couple, relocated to Halifax. Both sets LOVE where they are. :)

tranquilsea's avatar

@geeky_mama I spent many of my childhood summers on Mayne Island. It is low key living there. Salt Spring Island is the big island. There are more amenities there.

I recently made my way through the Maritimes and I loved it there. But we’d be really far away from both our families if we made that move. We’ll probably ultimately settle on Vancouver Island.

I’m happy to live where I do… in the city I live in. I wouldn’t mind moving out and remaining in this city if I could afford it and it would be accepted, though. :)
