Santorini, Greece. 

Edit: It occurs to me that if money was no object, I wouldn’t even keep a condo in my current city of Toronto. Identity crisis, aaahhh! I’d probably keep a place in London, New York, Malibu, and Nantucket (yes, Nantucket, lol), but I’d spend most of my time in Santorini.

I’d still love to live in Canada, but more specifically in Interior BC by the Selkirk Mountains (Think Nelson, Nakusp or Creston Valley for those of you who are familiar with BC).  It’s where I was born, it’s where I spent a lot of my summers, and it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been (And I’ve traveled lots!!). The only thing that would change if money was no object would the the size of the property and the eco-build of our house. Our dream would to be live off the grid in a self-sustaining house and property. DH and I are working towards this goal and hopefully one day we’ll be able to get there.

If money was no object I would still live in Chicago, just in a much nicer place and a different neighborhood.  Around here moving a few blocks can be like moving to a totally different city.  We would, of course, have some vacation homes or at least travel a lot.  But for actaul living, there is a reason I live where I do (family is near, our friends, and we actaully like the city).

We would stay in MD because this is where our family is and we 100% adore our neck of the woods. We’d just buy a different place right here in our current community. I think a nice house on 150ish acres would be enough to accomodate our plans. 🙂

In theory I’d love to live in Southern California. I would be interested to see what it would be like immersed in a different political culture, but I hate cold winters so that cuts out I think every other blue state. It’s a crazy expensive place to live, though, so I’ve never considered it. I think my only choice to hit those 3 points would be Austin TX, but that’s where our rival school is and I don’t want to go there 😛 I like DFW a lot as a compromise.

I love living in London, so I probably wouldn’t move, but Singapore would be a close second.

Madagascar. My FI is obsessed with lemurs, and he would be ecstatic to live there. I’m not sure if it’s expensive to live there or not, but to be able to work with lemurs, FI would have to go back to school and get at least a second bachelors, so that would cost money.

If it were up to me, though, I’d love to live in Japan or South Korea. And I’d buy 2 houses, one for me and FI and one for my mom (single mom, I don’t want to leave her alone).

Ireland near Wicklow or the Causeway Coast, or the Scottish Highlands. And since money is no object, we would have a whataburger attached to our castle so DH wouldnt whine about missing it.
