    Question If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go ?

    Imagine that you are fed up with your life where you live at the moment and need change. Or that you have won the lottery and can afford to live in the place of your dreams. Or that some unfortunate events force you to leave your place of residence. Or any other reason that would make you want to move.

    The world is yours, you do not have to worry about visas, job or money. Where would you choose to live ? Which continent, which country, which city ?

    Hmmm, that's really hard, because I haven't been to many places. At least, not to live for anywhere near long enough to be able to tell whether I'd like to live there near-permanently. I mean, going on holiday is obviously a lot different from being 'stuck' somewhere for ever, and I'm sure many places that seem really idyllic would certainly have their down-sides!

    I'd probably end up settling in the highlands of Scotland. :P (Although only if my lottery money would run to a private helicopter, so I could still have a social life up and down the UK! )

    Before settling down permanently in my gothic mansion on the edge of an isolated loch, though, I'd like to pay extended visits to France, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, Latvia, Arizona and Sri Lanka.

    I am far too old now, but if I could do it all over again, I would really love to live in France. Normandy has stolen my heart.

    If I were fed up with life in Kansas City I would move in a heartbeat if I won the lottery. There's no upward mobility in KC, and I know that when I finish graduate school I'm leaving KC to find another job elsewhere.

    I would love to live in several parts of Europe, like Venice, Italy and Nice, France. Maybe somewhere in the Netherlands. I would love to live in London because it's a very diverse city. If I could live in Asia, I would move to Hong Kong or a city in Japan, probably Osaka. I would even enjoy living in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai in particular. There's a lot of places I would choose to live.

    I would return home to Spain. I would also consider the Azores Islands, Iceland, Ireland, Southwest France, or Norway.

    Other attractive places include the American Pacific Northwest (Canadian Southwest) and Santa Catarina in Brazil.

    I live in the Skåneland (aka Scania). Skåneland consist of the four provinces Skåne, Halland, Blekinge and Bornholm. Skåne, Halland and Blekinge belong to Sweden. Bornholm belongs to Denmark. We want to have our own nation. We are not Swedes or Danes. I don't want to live in Skåneland because we don't have our own nation. There are many wonderful places around the world. I will probably move to the US in the future.

    I would like to live on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. That was the main reason I began learning Gáidhlig.
    One down point is I have a low body temperature and Lewis is even colder than N.Ireland but I still like the thought of it nonetheless.

    I think I would have gone to some other place in Europe, perhaps to a small village in Italy or France, where it is not so freezing cold in winter.

    Some quiet place far from civilization but developed enough to provide me an easy access to some basic commodities.

    Maybe Iceland, somewhere in rural England (perhaps the Welsh marches or somewhere in East Anglia or the south-west), or just somewhere rural in the British Isles in general. Failing all of those i might give Canada a go.

    There is something attractive to me about England, plus I have 2nd cousins in London so I wouldn't be alone. :)
