View Full Version : if you could live anywhere...

15-11-03, 07:44
...where would you choose to live?

id live in australia, probably melbourne or esperance, yup.

15-11-03, 07:49
What a great question! Hmmm, let's see ... I think I'd like to live in Carmel or Santa Barbara in California if in the U.S.; otherwise, I'd love to live in Europe in France or Italy or something. :)

15-11-03, 08:06
yeah cali is nice, i had alot of fun living there. lived in van nuys and apple valley, up in the high desert. prolly why i still dont like the cold :p

15-11-03, 08:13
I live in California now but in the Sacramento area, which isn't my ideal. I'm an ocean person and would, therefore, love to live near the ocean!! :happy: Meanwhile, at least I'm centrally located near Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, and the Napa Valley!

I do love Maine ! I'm just a few hundred yards from the ocean. The White Mountains are just a few hours drive. The 4 seasons are all so different and so beautiful. Most of the people are friendly and we are becoming more cultural diverse every day. The air and water are pure compared to many places. Sometimes it hard to leave the place you were born and raised !


16-11-03, 02:22
Right here in Finland, or maybe the Seychelles,Iceland,Japan or something...some place where one could find peace,nature and quiteness, and then again some action, people and citylife when wanted.

16-11-03, 04:05
Live on my own little island off the coast of japan so i could visit there. oh, and only my friends and their faimlies will live on the island

16-11-03, 04:43
Pattaya, Thailand! Go there & find out why!

Yeah. Water is really important, but I could live happily near a lake too...just as long as I could see some "natural" water.

hmmmm.... I'm tempted to say Japan aswell, but I dont know, it would have to be a smaller, more rural city. I wouldn't mind living in Germany. But in the end I would probably end up back in canada.

17-11-03, 03:04
japan and new zealand

17-11-03, 11:05
japan, switzerland, or just here where I am :wave:

17-11-03, 14:53
An Island like
virgin islands

an island because, i think, my soul would feel at rest on an island by the beach near the ocean. -Just Free-:)

18-11-03, 04:18
Rural Hyogo. Already have the house picked out.........if it is still standing in a decade or two.

18-11-03, 04:30

18-11-03, 07:06

On the outskirts of Amman, Jordan or maybe Cairo, Egypt (the Desert holds a certain mystique for me...). If not there then perhaps off the coast of Monaco or the Isle of Crete (love the Mediterranean).

For a laugh, check out the answers posted to your question over at the new Buddhist forum, E-Sangha. I posted your question over there, and was expecting to receive answers very similar to those posted here. But this is what I got instead:


I never would have expected those answers!! :)


18-11-03, 12:06
Near Nippori station and whatever tenement housing remains ;) in the Yanaka, old Shitamachi, district of Tokyo.


19-11-03, 15:42
@mandylion :p

@iron chef
the desert holds a certain not humid-ness for me, another reason why i like deserts

that is a whole different view entirely, though technicly would you have to be dead to live in paradise?

that place looks nice, reminds me of the town in shenmue for some reason.

19-11-03, 16:38

I thought you'd get a kick out of it, as I found the answers so surprisingly different from all of ours! Hopefully, they are referring to paradise as a state of mind... :happy:

Is that somewhere around Hong Kong or do you mean in the game Shenmue? :D

20-11-03, 13:32
id have to say japan...but i quite like where i am...but id also like to live on a Greek island called Kefalonia...theres a little port, and its so quiet and relaxing- i think only about a few hundred live there...ive been there 4 times and the guy who owns the bar gave me free milkshakes :clap: but the next i went he'd gone to athens :(

20-11-03, 14:41
man, that sounds sooooooooooo cool. Kefalonia!!! I wanta go there and visit now:cool:

20-11-03, 14:55
the game shenmue, like a quite little japanese town, seems really nice.

small islands are cool, though i prefer the tropical kind, i'm an aspiring beach bum.

20-11-03, 14:57
beach bum'

i think were all like that at heart;)

20-11-03, 16:03
although the sun does give me a headache sometimes, which is super-annoying

20-11-03, 16:51
I'd want to live in the states...preferably CA or FL. Somewhere sunny and total opposite of Ireland.

20-11-03, 16:57
I live in Florida, u don't want to live here.

people can't drive right
old people drive the most and sight see
its hott and i mean HOTT!
Cops are all over the place
Its mainly a retirement home

20-11-03, 17:14
I'd also want to be somewhere that stays warm and sunny most of the time. Some place that would never get below 70 degrees. Lots of sunshine makes me the happiest=healthiest. ;)

20-11-03, 17:15
*i love to be frozen...bundled undercovers with that loved one*

now that heaven plus is healthy!:cool:

I'd live in tokyo. (For awhile anyway :p )

14-08-05, 05:34
Let's see there's a lot of places I'd like to live.

If you want to live somewhere that's simply just beautiful just move to Florence, Italy. I sure would. :p

I would love to live in London (which I probably will someday)
As far as living in an Asian nation, I would like to live in Tokyo and Kyoto Japan and Hong Kong.

If I could live anywhere in the US, I would choose to live somewhere on the East Coast, like Rhode Island or Massachusettes, I don't know why though.

14-08-05, 12:47
I would live in Glastonbury (http://www.glastonbury.co.uk/) in Somerset, in the West Country of England.

14-08-05, 15:17
Hawaii, of course.
I love sunshine, sea breeze, and the ocean.

14-08-05, 15:29
The key word anywhere. To stay for some time at various places. And when it would come close to the age at which it is not so easy to travel - pick the favorite place and spend there the rest of the life. With the PC wired to I-net chatting with friends and babbling about own experience - like "at your age, kids, i..." :D

15-08-05, 05:50
Personally I'm pretty happy in Sapporo. But if I had to move, I'm quite fond of Seattle. Either that or somewhere in really "small town America" - the kind of place where you see a sign driving into the town saying "Population: 104". Maybe somewhere up in the Sierra Nevada. Then I could weekend in Vegas and ski at Mammoth during the winter ;-)

ps. I'm not American, so I'm not just "bigging up" my own country

18-08-05, 09:10
Hmm, of the places I have been to (which there arent many to choose from) I am happy enough for the time being here in Korea. Im not in any rush to go back to New Zealand, even though it's beautiful, and small and not overpopulated.
As long as I am near a body of water other than the toilet, I am happy. I love to be in a high place (on a mountain or in an apartment) overlooking water. Water makes me happy.
I think I would like to live on a super yacht and just be at sea for the rest of my life. I can play Pirates! Yeah thats where I would be most happy. Anywhere, as long as im on the water.

18-08-05, 11:58
A little greek island, like Alonysos, with my own space rocket to take me to Japan when I get bored of the quiet life

18-08-05, 11:58

:D :D :D :D :D

18-08-05, 12:06
Of course I would need a toilet in my happy little piece of neverland... BUT I dont want that to be the ONLY body of water around me :P

13-09-05, 08:50

But I probably wouldn't be happy to stay in one place for the rest of my life, anyway.
