    Do you ever want to move away from the area that you currently live in, and if so, why?

    Absolutely!! I get bored quickly with where I'm living. I want to explore the world and understand different ways of life. Luckily, I have a career that allows me to move wherever and whenever I please.

    There is a part of me that would like to do so. I grew up in a small town and when I return there, I enjoy the simplicity and the lack of hustle and bustle...there is a quality of life there especially when you live in the heart of DFW like I currently do. At the same time, as we age, we have to look at the availability of medical facilities and doctors.  Driving an hour or two hours for medical care may not be that feasible at the elderly levels...it's a gamble!

    Definitely. I live in Tennessee right now, I am a Michigan girl (but I never wanted to live there either when I was there). After I spent 6 months in South Korea I really got it into my head that I never want to permanently reside somewhere. Moving around is an adventure, I'd like to continue to do it.

    I wouldn't mind living in a warmer climate -- without Winter's triple punch of snow, ice and cold weather.  I hate wearing heavy gear -- coats, boots, scarfs -- everywhere and restricting my outside activities.

    I have lived in cold and warm climates including Alaska and Alabama. Right now I live in a cold climate and I do not like the snow and ice. I would love to move to somewhere in the middle where the cold and hot are not so extreme. I don't like wearing winter gear. I am a jeans and teeshirt fellow.

    Funny you should ask this because I have just moved away from the area I lived in for 18 years. The short reason is that we enrolled our children in a new school 65 miles away from our home and did not want to commute.

    The long answer is that the school district, with the exception of the grade school, was lacking academically. I lived in a mountain, resort community where there was snow and cold temeratures and I had to drive an hour to go shopping, to the movies, or out to dinner. As well as activities for teenagers was next to nothing.

    Now I live close to everything, even close enough to bike to and I'm loving it!

    I would love to live in a warm climate.  I love the sun.  I love laying on my deck and reading a book and soaking up the warmth.  It's so relaxing.  Or go to the beach and take a stroll on the boardwalk.  I also feel like I can accomplish so much more during the warmer months.

    I tried it and went too much to the other extreme.  Both my husband and I grew up in South Florida, but as the population grew, we talked about moving out to a nice rural environment away from the hustle and bustle.

    As it turned out, we moved to a small rural town in Washington State and, while we loved the beauty, and some other things about the area, we found that we were constantly driving for hours AWAY from our town to attend activities that we enjoy.  After a few years of that we decided to move back to Florida...but not South Florida.  We found the Tampa Bay area to be much less congested, and have some quaint little towns we liked, without having to sacrifice our interests.

    I've lived in this one area for so long because of necessity (job) that I've grown bored with it.  And it's one of the largest cities in the South but I've also lived in small towns, too.

    I've been to Europe 2x and have traveled to a few states out West.  Spent a lay-over stay at the airport in NYC but never ventured out.  The airport was adventure enough smile  Yes, I'd like to move away from here to experience new food, sounds, laughter and new conversations.  People are interesting to me.

    No. I live in S. Lake Tahoe, CA and it is so beautiful. Plus the schools are great (the high school is in the top 6% in the country). The kids here are focused on their ski lessons and outdoor activities so have less issue with drugs and so on than other places I've lived.

    Now, as I get older, I can see not being so thrilled with having to go out and snow-blow in the dark, cold morning. After the kids are grown and I'm retired, maybe I will go back to San Diego if I can live in a small place and don't have to fight traffic.

    But these are the only 2 places that I have ever been so happy to call home.

    I prefer a place that's a bit noisy during the day.

    After spending the last several years, doing just this......I am tired of the going.  I just want to be somewhere, where I can see the flowers that I planted bloom, where I can eat from the garden I sowed.

    Going gets old.  Saying goodbye too often has a tendancy to numb you.  These things are not good.
