Where do you want to settle down?

    Given a choice and funds, where would you like to live (migrate, if necessary) and die?
    Or, do you want to stay put where you are?

    Me, first flight to South Pacific Islands

    I like where we are (New England).  I don't want warmth always; too many bugs.

    We have tremendous natural beauty, geologically fairly stable, near the ocean and (small) mountains, lots of history, museums, culture, changing seasons and fewer conservatives than the rest of the country.

    Actually the last is the most important to me smile

    I will go back to my parents seaside vacation house in the Philippines, one day.

    Some Nordic country, some North European, Norway, may be, or may be just my old country Latvia, they love dollars now, who doesn't?
    I hate bugs and snakes and crocodiles. No Florida for me.

    Personally, I'd pick my homeland : Brittany (France)

    I like where I am (Pennsylvania, U.S.).  Four seasons. Beautiful autumns.  Close enough to enjoy the city in NYC or the beach in New Jersey.  There's still a bit of farmland nearby... and its close to all my family, which is very important to me.

    I will say though, that when I visited Ireland, I didn't want to come home.  I fell in love with the landscape and most of the people I met.  Plus, there is just such a sense of history across the Atlantic that we don't have here.  We ("non-Native" Americans - for lack of a better descriptor)are relative babes in the woods.

        Where in Bali have you been? Club city Kuta? Or did you go snorkling in the east? There are lots of cool places!

    I live in Oklahoma now, but I would eventually love to live by the ocean. Maybe not until I retire (still a long ways off) but the ocean is one of my absolute favorite places to be - especially in Florida, more specifically Naples, FL. smile But anywhere closer to the ocean would be awesome!

    I like living in warm areas, having moved from Vermont to Florida. But it's crowded here, and crime is going up. So maybe Hawaii, or out west in the USA. smile

    I moan about where I live (South East England) but it's actually got a lot going for it - climate, for example.  Wouldn't want to live in a place with horrendously long, cold winters and a short growing season, and I don't do heat/humidity/poisonous insects/snakes either, which means the tropics are out too lol

      I'm in the South-East of England too, and I'm here for all the above reasons, plus strong links to family and friends who are also firmly rooted nearby. Sometimes I toy with the idea of moving away, but I think I'm far too comfortable where I am.

        Same here - that's why it baffles me when people relocate to another country without doing any research about it beforehand and often without even knowing the language (think all those British expats in Spain and France many of whom moved there because the property market and the Euro/£ exchange rate were much more favourable than they are now, and they were tempted by warmer weather).

    Mars would be cool if we can find a way to inhabit it. On earth, somewhere warm.

    I love mountains and beautiful greenery...and yet I do like (not love) snow. The best of both worlds would be right here in Santa Barbara in southern California. Although Costa Rica looks nice!

    Whatever it is it needs to have a beach, a bar, and a bunch of guys.

    I never want to settle down. If I get really rich, I'll have residences everywhere; London, Paris, Marbella, New York, Los Angeles, Acapulco, Rio ... I'll keep dreaming ...

    Anywhere there is different terrain, lots of trees, and few people.

    Oddly enough, that may mean Iowa.
