I know everyone of us has this "wanting" to be in a place where we really want to be . Not really a place that you are always dreaming of but an important place to you. Like where do you wanna be or wanna live when you grow old? Me, want i really want is to be in my childhood place (Im leaving here in the Philippines and the place i am talking about is also here). The place where i was born and grew up with until i was in grade school. Because every now and then when i think of that place; it always flashes into my mind my childhood friends , crushes, the places where i used to go and become happy just thinking of that. Good memories just keeps on popping whenever i think of that place, what else would happen if i would be there- happiness. I mean i always been dreaming of going to Rome or US but at the end of the day, I always want to grow old to a more comfortable place where else; the place I call HOME. How about you ?

I really don't want to grow old! But, as it's coming whether I like it or not I suppose I have to start thinking where I want to end up when I reach a ripe old age! I live in the city right now and I can tell you, I definitely don't want to grow old in the city. I have a hope, a dream that I will someday end up living in the countryside. I love the peace and the tranquility of the country. I love the birds and the wild deer, the squirrels and the badgers! Please let me end up living in the countryside and I genuinely believe that this is a taste of heaven! I will tell you what I don't want in old age! I don't want to be so incapacitated that I am unable to do anything for myself. The very thought of turning into a geriatric frightens me! I don't like the thought of having someone (excuse my use of language here!)clean my backside for me as I'm unable to do it for myself!! Yes, I don't mind being old if I am still able-bodied. I can picture myself sitting on my portch admiring the beautiful countryside, the sun shining upon my face and then finally saying to myself "Andrew, you old timer you! You finally made it, you got what you always wanted!" Andrew

Wherever you want to live, if that makes you happy then that's great. Yes, you're right, I'm sure that there are a lot of people that want to live in the countryside. Whilst living in the city, everyday is one more breath of polluted air!! Andrew

I lived and born here in Kuwait and this is my home sweet home but when I got married with a wife who lived and born in the Philippines and I visited there for 2 times and bought to have our own Land and build a house in there for us to have a place in the future vacation with the family then maybe who knows when i got very old and had been out of work at the age of 60 maybe we would choose to stay with my wife place in which we bought in one of the province of Cebu........

In Montana. Up in the mountains. Owning ranch land and lots of animals. That is my dream and my mission. My husband and I are planning to move there once we get the money. It is all open land and not near as many people as texas.

i would love to get marooned on a lonely island. i am simply nuts about staying there. there should be no sign of human there. i would just jump and play, drink coconut milk and eat the wild fruits.but yes, no biggggggg wild animals also. otherwise, my stay there would terminate in no time...

I'm not sure where it's gonna be because my husband and I are from different country! But I always want to live in a country side where I can own a big garden and have lots of animals and plant a lot of vegetables! But my husband want to live close to the ocean.
