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.
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.
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. But anywhere closer to the ocean would be awesome!
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
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).
