I was just thinking about this while I was taking the dog out in the rain. If you could LIVE anywhere, where would you live and why? Not visit but live for at least a few years.
I have always told people I would love to move to South Carolina. I want to live somewhere warm but not too warm. I want to leave near a beach I can visit year round. I would like to live on the east coast because my family. But, I don’t know how the school districts are for when I do have kids. Also, I don’t know if there are any pharmaceutical companies in that area. I know Research Triangle in NC might be another alternative.
I would like to move back to my hometown to lil ol’ Downingtown, PA because its a great place to grow up, plus my family is there and I could get a job at my old company or at a number of pharmaceutical companies in the area. But, the winter can be cold. Oh, and I love my family but I want some distance but not too far that I can’t visit them on some weekends.
Oh, I’ve already done the across the country and on our own move already (Seattle is pretty far from Philly).
What about you?

I want to live in Phoenix, AZ. I absolutely LOVE the desert and I can handle the 115 degree days. Plus it doesn’t snow. SO. TIRED. OF. SNOW.
I’m afraid to move abroad, but I think I would want to move to Madrid. When I was there, it was so cosmopolitan yet rich in history and culture. Not to mention it is beautiful!

Hmm…maybe the Pacific Northwest. Not a lot of freezing temps and snow (well, except for the mountains), doesn’t usually get too hot in the summer (I really can’t stand heat), mountains, ocean, what’s not to love ?! (I don’t mind rain :P)

Portland, OR. We currently live in Upstate, NY and LOATH it. We’re planning on moving to Portland after our wedding. Based on the research we’ve done so far, it really seems like the best fit for our lifestyle.

I would love to live somewhere warm! Somewhere I can do outside activities all year round. I would love Northern California. Maybe I’ll get there someday.

CaitMarae I have lived in Portland. Interesting mix there, great outside activities if that is what you are interested in… lots of people 20s-30s. Right now a lot of people are out of work there (but I know you two have a business), housing is affordable.

@UpstateCait: Portland is a great city. First time we went to Portland, the Darling Husband asked me why I didn’t get a job in Portland instead of Seattle!
@HayleyJane: Oh, Seattle… yeah when it snows they are usually not prepared for it. Plus they are environmently friendly so they don’t like to use salt. Oh, and you have to learn to put tire chain on your car if it is icy or snowy. So yeah, I’m terrified of of driving in snow out here. I don’t trust the roads or the drivers. Other than the rain and cloudy-ness during 3/4 of the year, it’s a pretty city with views of the mountains and you can see Mt. Rainier! lol

In the media I love AZ too!
yrret107 I have lived all over, but never the south. Sounds lovely though.
I am thinking of moving to NYC for graduate school, but I have had so many big moves already in my life- in a way, it frees me, sort of like “what’s one more?” But I also want to settle and have a home.

Second choice would be back home, in Istanbul. If only Darling Husband was up for it.

I would like to live in the Houston area. I lived there for a while and loved it, but then I had to move out here because of Hubby’s job. 🙁 We plan to move back to that area ASAP. I loved living in the area because it is close to family, but not too close. lol Also, because there is alot of things to do.

Mars, in a bio-dome with a space farm replete with space cow and space chickens.
Realistically though? Victoria BC or in the rocky mountains on a plot of land off grid.
Maybe New Zealand [if I could get a visa/citzenship].

Hmm… I think Maryland. I grew up in Philly and then moved to GA. I love it here, but I’d like to get back up a little further North, closer to family. And I love Maryland beaches and Maryland crabs!
But, I’d also love to live in the Rockies. Lots of hiking and AMAZING places to see!

Washington, D.C. I’ve spent enough time there (lived 3-4 hours from there growing up) that I think I’d really enjoy it there. It’s probably my favorite city. I know the cost of living is rediculous but it’s worth it to have so many job oppurtunities for me and FH.
Also, I want real seasons again. While I enjoy the 70s in January, I would like a real fall.
