I wanted to live in LA, so I moved to LA.

based purely on environment and such...the Mediterranean coast, like southern italy. Realistically, I'm very happy here in new hampshire

Monaco. I fell in love with that place within the first hour I was there.

If I had my choice... I'd go back to the Carson City area of Nevada. I loved it there.

But, I have a family in tow. So, I can't always get what I want.

We're here in NY by the Great Lakes. The winters suck although the rest of the year is great, especially summer. We have a lakeside cabin for boating and fishing during summer.

Area around Carson City:

Athens , Venice , Mississippi , and just recently after playing Last Of Us I feel like I've got a thing for Texas , possibly Jackson.

Hmm that's a tough question. I can't answer it somehow. I want to be out of here that's for sure, but to where exactly I don't know. Belgium and Japan come to mind. I'd also want to spend some substantial time in Israel, Russia and Germany.

Haha, you've only got one life, and it doesn't last all that long. Every second you waste complaining and wishing is a second you're not going to spend getting everything you want from the world. I look at the world kind of like a wet rag, it's mine to ring out, and I plan to suck every last drop of everything out of it.

So, yes. Come on you jerk-offs, you wanna get something? Go get it.

I'll keep that in mind.

Oregon or Washington... always wanted to migrate northwest.

The Netherlands or Luxembourg maybe? Got friends in the Netherlands, so that would suit me just fine.. if I could learn Dutch properly that is. A few phrases here and there ain't helping much, hehe, but godverdomme it's hard! If not, then I would prefer something central to Europe at least.

Norway is nice, but it's nowhere near as connected to the rest of the world as it should have been. I'm very sick of this place at least.

A place where pirate aren't going to try and shoot us and rape our daughters, a place that's not stupidly cold, a place that hasn't got wildlife that attacks you for being anywhere near it, plants that kill you instantly, river plagues and spiders so big they got health bars and give xp when you slay them.

Think i'll stay in Cornwall UK.

Monaco, Italy and possibly Japan if it weren't for their crazy work conditions.

Back home in Colorado. Preferably Apsen or Durango.

I often wonder how many of the people who mention Japan, a popular answer on this forum, have even been there before. Not that there's anything wrong with Japan, but it's very different from western living, especially if you aren't native Japanese.

North Dakota.

#19 Posted by sukraj (21611 posts) -

Canada or America

I'm sure they'll be somewhat hostile to you if you act like the typical, single, asshole GI who gets drunk senseless and then either tear up the place or barf/pee, even take a dump by the roadside.

On the other hand, the locals are much more forgiving if you're a family with wife n kids in tow.

Assuming that finances are not a problem, each month I would see myself gradually advancing thru a set of a countries, with pre-set commodities and legal allowances in each of those nations.

...or I would go to a marss

At the moment, Hong Kong for career opportunities.
