#NaBloPoMo – Day 2: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?


Well since the question was “If you could LIVE anywhere, where would it be?” and not “If you could VISIT anywhere, where would it be?” I have to stick with The United States of America! Even if our government is fucked up beyond repair, I still think we have it better than most other countries. I would love to move to a warmer area though, maybe California? I don’t really know. I used to live in Connecticut, and I can easily say that I am MUCH happier in New York than Connecticut.

Let’s twist the words a little, since I love to do that. The question didn’t say that it must be our only place to live, so I will pretend to buy a house in Ireland and England. I have never been to either of those places, but it is a dream of mine to go to both. I don’t really have a reason, other than every picture I have seen is breathtaking…oh, and I melt for the English Accent.

My ideal place is somewhere quiet, most definitely NOT a city, but close enough to stores to go shopping when I want. I don’t want to drive an hour to do my grocery shopping, but I don’t mind driving that far to do fun shopping. It makes me less likely to actually spend money that way. I need a place that allows high speed internet access, preferably Wi-Fi or even 3G. Being a blogger, the internet is a MUST for me. I want somewhere that is warm year round, I don’t want to see snow ever again! I also wouldn’t mind an inground pool with a waterslide in my backyard, and a lake for our boat nearby. Also, this mystery location MUST have a Starbucks within 15 minutes from my house. Ok, now I am getting a little carried away, but I do need my coffee! That is the one thing I miss from Connecticut; the fact that I could walk to a Starbucks. Here, I have a 35 minute drive if I want a cup of their coffee, which means, I don’t get it often.
