Describe it. Tell me what you like about it. What brought you to live where you do? I love living in the country where I do. I have lived in the same house all my life. I don't think I could live in town or in the city. I am so used to the quiet. Dark and silent nights.. birds chirping in the morning before the first sounds of vehicles racing down the road. I love the animals, the privacy, the room we have out here. I wouldnt trade it for the world.

I live on the edge of a coastal town and the back of my home overlooks fields. It is in a quiet close that children like to play in. There is a river behind my home and countryside. I like to walk along a path that goes along the river and sometimes I am lucky enough to see swans or ducks. It is lovely to have peace and quiet, hear the wild birds chirping outside my windows. I appreciate the quiet nights I have but in the summer flights increase and planes flying over from my nearest airport. I am happy with the locality that I live in.

I live in Shanghai which is the biggest city in China for two years. I think all of the big city in the world is the same, so many people, more cars and high buildings. I really like living in the contryside, I can imagine how beautiful your place is.

I live in town,and I was born in this town the town is a little too big for me.I would prefer the country or a small little town like population less than 100 people.I guess some people like city life,but I would trade for a house in the counrty in a hard cold minute.Its never really quiet,which I prefer and always sounds of cars going by and someone being loud and rude at untimely times in the night.

I live in a suburban area. We have terrific neighbors who help each other out. My hubby and I got married, and bought the house we live in. I like being close to stores and activity. I could visit in the country and have. But I think to be comfortable I need a certain amount of noise.

I live in the slopes of a rain forest in the tropics, with an 1.5 acre garden which I tend, like you said, I could not live elsewhere.

Well, I now reside in a very small town in what some would call the desert part of Texas. It's the flat lands. Yes, rattle snake country, and the joke to be is we sit and watch the tumbleweeds roll by for entertainment. *LOL* I have always lived in the country, so it took some getting used to for me. I like the fact that the town is small, so I have no worries when my youngest son (14) decides to walk to a friends house. I moved here due to the fact of this is where the love of my life lived. Yes, I met him online. And been happily married for 6 years now.

I lived in city. Actually i've been living in several places, first it was a quiet town, and now in much more noisy one. But still i like my home, love it every single day and won't trade for anything. I'm with my family, and that what the best. I lived in a place where people go for vacation. So, I can go to beach whenever i want, i can go to see the trees whenever i want...:)
