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.
