Village or town, jungle or city what do you feel about it?
I live in the suburbs in which I grew up - so not only is it quiet and boring, its also filled with people I don't want to see ever.
Suburban life is bad but city life isn't the greatest either. I lived in Boston for 4 years and, while its great in terms of accessible entertainment, it also feels lonely in a way. I can't adequately describe it.
I'm kind of reclusive, so I think it would be nice to live in a village or something in which there is a sizable amount of land but few human beings. My first home was mildly secluded and in a fairly heavily wooded area, so I've still got this fondness for solitude thing going on.
What about you?
I have lived in big cities and in dense jungles, sparsely populated islands and on board ships. Frozen wastelands and scorched lands. Only deserts remain.
I call a small hamlet my home now. I am at peace and happy to be with a small community interacting with one another where week-ends are always looked forward to, with the boys at the tavern with beer flowing and humor leading us to past midnight.
I live in a City with full of Snow in Winter time.
I live in a small city, I much rather live in the country but that is to expensive so not really an option for me right now.
San Diego is a pretty big city. But I do love it here. But like anyplace else it has its problems. But there is no perfect place , but this is as close to Utopia as I can get I suppose !
i loooooooooove san diego. its one of my favorite places of the world.
however, i live in sacramento, faaaaaaaaaaar from any semblance of utopia. more like the devil's a-hole, if you ask me.
i guess some people like it. ??? i don't know how though. lol
It wouldn't be my first choice, or my second, but it works. Actually, after being here for more than a decade, I am beginning to grow attached to the area. The mountains no longer annoy me.
I live in a small town, that has very little sense of community. Slowly, some of that is changing, as the town grows in infrastructure.
It's okay for now. This is a medium to large city with its fair share of problems and then some. I am tempted to move east in a couple of years. It would be nice to live in an area with lower crime and a better handle on its racial issues.
I live in the forest with a lake that way and more lakes forest n swamps the other way. Maybe see a wolf, bear, deer or porcupine. I lived in the city but am quite happy where I am now.
I live a short walk away from the Atlantic ocean. It's a beautiful place to live. A little cold right now though! Brrr.
Love where we're at in the Arizona desert except that you can still see those darned human hovels in the distance and light pollution at night.
I'm a small-town desert rat...grew up in the badlands, and now live at the base of the mountains. I love it here, though would much prefer to be back out in the country...hopefully in a couple of years I will be...but it's not the place for social kinds of people, or for people who can't find enjoyment in nature, or for people who want to find a decent job that has room for advancement. It's all good, that just leaves more room for people like me .
We live in the city but not exactly downtown area so it is relatively peaceful. We are near beaches, nature parks and shopping malls. Love it!
I absolutely love where I live in Melbourne. This city is modern, full of parks and animals, easy going and cosmopolitan.The weather is easy too.
I grew up in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. I lived in two towns, one very close to the Vineyards there. In fact, every second weekend we went out there as we had (and still have) family living in Pokolbin. A nice childhood, mostly, but was very glad to leave for the Big Smoke. In my case, Sydney.
I first lived in the inner suburbs, around the Newtown/Enmore area and loved it. Loved the vibe and how close everything is. I still miss living there. I moved out west to be closer to where my work is because the travel was getting to me. It's okay. I live in a fairly sleepy suburb, but the vibe isn't here, and the public transport sucks. I still go into the inner suburbs occasionally just to soak up the vibe to revive myself...and you can't beat the harbour. I sometimes just get on a ferry just to take the trip, forget about the destination!
Oh, and for the most part, the weather aint too bad. :-)
I live in a small town. Its beautifully set in a shallow valley. I am attached to this place because I have the best of 3 different worlds. I only live 25 mins from the city if I need entertainment, but far enough away to be apart from city life, and only 25 mins the other way from lakes and beaches and my chalet. I can wake up on any given morning and watch deer walk lazily past my house. I didn't grow up here, but I am coming to fall in love with this place and not sure if I will ever leave.
I live in the countryside, near woods, caves, rolling hills and the moors. I am very lucky, I love where I live.
I live in the beautiful Greek mountains amongst wonderful, friendly people. Ancient Sparta is just down the road, and Beautiful Helen of Troy was born in Pellanas, a couple of miles away.
I can have no complaints

If so, where? And why? Permanently or just for a while?I would seriously consider living in New Zealand, if they let me in, potentially permanently.I would like to live in the US, Canada and Australia for a year a piece. In other words I would have no interest in a permanent visa, but I would like...

I'd have to go with the waterfront in Toronto Canada, except for winter. It is where musicians, artists, venders all gather and eat lots of hot dogs.That or Sneaky Dee's pub uptown

As an adult, do you live in the same town that you were born in?

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