If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Asked by AustieZ (363points) June 6th, 2010

If you could live anywhere on earth (up to two places; summer home/winter home thing), where would it/they be?

Crans-Montana, Switzerland and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for me. Theres just something about them that made me fall in love with them.

Toughie. London came to mind first, but I’ve always wanted to be able to call Australia home.
And have an accent.

I want to live in three places during the year. 3 months in Michigan, 3 Months in NYC, 4 Months in FL, and two months that would change every year starting with Italy, then Australia, then Spain…

If I ever become a bag lady, San Francisco would be ideal. Since I’m not at that point, the plan is to get the heck away from Graceland and settle in a small town in England.

JLeslie's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Haha. I’m live near Graceland right now also.

Seattle, Wa during the summer and CO for the rest of it

I’ve been thinking about this. Somewhere that is cool for most of the year is what I would like.

JLeslie's avatar

@perspicacious Really? What is cool to you?

perspicacious's avatar

@JLeslie 73 and under. I have just come to really dislike hot weather and I live in the SE now.

JLeslie's avatar

@perspicacious I see. Maybe San Diego would be close enough? If you still want it to be sunny and not freezing in the winter. I like it in the 80’s. I miss living in FL.

I’m quite happy to stay in my (not so) little corner of Australia, although I would also love to live in Oxford if England weren’t so cold all the time.

I dislike that you said “on earth”

@JLeslie My sister lives in south FL and it’s torture down there as far as I’m concerned. I would not mind living where long sleeves were necessary in the summer. I’ve spent some time in the extreme north of California and loved the climate up there. A lot of rain, but a nice temperature all year long.

JLeslie's avatar

@perspicacious I could see that. I would never recommend Florida for you. I love living there. It is hotter in Memphis (where I live now) in the summer than Boca Raton, and for over 4 months in the winter it is Spring weather. I would rather complain about the heat than the cold, but that is me. Northern Cali makes sense for you. Go for it.

@JLeslie It’s looking like a move is in my future. :)

I love England, except for English winters, so I’d like to spend the winter months in New Zealand.

a Scandinavian country, preferably Norway :)

There’s no place like home & here i’d like to stay.Although a villa on Lake Como would be a luxury I could cope with for a couple of months I s’pose.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Small beach town in NorCal. It would be my home base to travel out of.

NYC is home for me, so that’s tops in my book. I’ve always dreamed of living in Paris, London or Amsterdam. I’m a city gal, can you tell?

Let’s see…

No temperature over 76F or under -25F.
Four distinct seasons. Winter must include snow, although I could do without blizzards. I don’t mind rain, although I don’t want it all the time. Enough to keep things as green and healthy as possible.
50-ish acres, wooded except for an acre or so.
No more than a 20 minute drive from a grocery store.
No more than an hour drive from a city with museums, sports, good restaurants.

Except for the summers being too hot and the lack of 50 acres, I have this. But if someone knows where I can get the temperature, let me know!
