If You Could Move Anywhere in the World...

If money were no object and you could move anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go. Lately I have been thinking seriously about leaving my hometown because I have lived here my entire life and I want a change. I think moving to California could be nice. Not necessarily to Hollywood, but somewhere near the ocean would be great.

California is nice. I lived there most of my life, but I would go to Italy. =]

Italy sounds great too. I would definitely check out the soccer teams and the shopping in italy. The only problem with that is that I don't speak Italian and I would be very intimidated to move to a foreign country where I'm not familiar with the laws or the language.

I actually really like where I am now. I usually don't like it here in January and February because of the cold and the snow, but the rest of the year I am very happy to be here. I live in an area that has very noticable 4 seasons and I like that. It is also though a very expensive state to live in, high housing costs, and high taxes. I wouldn't mind someday moving to a state that has slightly milder winters, but does not get unbarebly hot in the summer, and some place where taxes and real estate are not as expensive.

It depends if it was a permanent move or not. There's a few countries I would quite like to live in for a few years - Italy, the South of France, New Zealand and probably more that I can't think of right now. I don't know if I would want to settle in any of them forever though. I'm Scottish although I live in England at the moment. I'm pretty settled here but I still can't imagine not going back to live in Scotland again at some point in the future. I still think of it as home. I haven't even left the UK so I think I would struggle making a permanent move overseas! If it was just for a few years I think number one on my list would be Florence, Italy. If it was a permanent move it would be to the highlands of Scotland. As for you, if you're seriously thinking of moving then go for it! I stayed too long in my hometown, sometimes it's good to go where no-one knows you and start again.

I would love to be near the ocean. I grew up less than five minutes from the ocean and am now in the middle of the state and about two hours from the nearest coast. I would love, love to live in Monterey, California. It is absolutely beautiful there. The sights are unmatched by anything I have ever seen. I would go to Pebble Beach if money were limitless. The houses there are super nice and also super expensive. If I were looking at another country I think I would love to live in Costa Rica or Scotland. Costa Rica for the ocean and it's beauty. And Scotland too for it's beauty and because it is my heritage.

Funny, I am the total opposite. I have lived in the same town since I was 8. I don't want to live anywhere else. I would rather visit a few places but have my home base here.I would love to visit London, Chicago, and Tuscany.

i would like to move to tasmania as i am attracted to the beautiful nature and slow moving pace of life there. also the people there are very friendly and warming. i think staying there would be great and away from the hectic city life that i have been residing for the past 30+ years. i prefer something natural and away from worries and troubles. i think one would have more pressure in a city than in a countryside area.

Anywhere in the world? I've always hated this question because I haven't been everywhere... So I don't know if the atmosphere of one would outweigh the weather of another. Generalized, I think I'd probably move to Hawaii. My dad bartended out there once upon a time and said it's just a whole different world. Besides, I wouldn't like to go through the trouble of getting a passport and everything.
