    Do you like where you are living now?  If not, where do you want to live?

    Ecuador.  Lowest cost of living vs lifestyle in the world, depending upon which town/city you choose.  Gas is $1.48 per gallon.

      So, are you thinking of moving to Ecuador?

    No.  My wife and I live in Illinois.  The labor unions have destroyed our state's economy, especially those for retired state workers.  We have $83 billion in unfunded tax liabilities, but our Democratic controlled legislature and statehouse refuse to cut spending.  One-half of all newborn babies end up on medicaid insurance within two years, and most stay on it indefinately.  My wife pays into the TRS (teachers' retirement system $400 per month.  Governor Blago stole money out of it and now there isn't enough funds in there for the future retirees.  Most politicians are corrupt here, and they raised our income tax 66% last year.  This resulted in employers leaving Illinois, and a net loss of jobs in 2011.  We want to move to a fiscally-responsible state and are biding our time....before it is too late.

      Hi Eric, thanks for answering my question.  I hope you find a better state, as you said, before it's too late.

      It's also pretty in Florida.  I was in St. Pete two years ago.  It was beautiful.

    No, I don't care for where I live in Montana.  It is too rural for me. I would like to live at the beach again somewhere where I could hear the sound of the ocean and smell the salt air.  But my kids and grandkids are here so here I will stay.

      well, I guess home is where your loved ones are.  But you can always go to the beach with your kids and grandkids.

    I live in Sydney and it is a beautiful city to live in if you can put up with the traffic congestion! I would love to take a year off and live on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

      Hi MPG, so nice to see you.. I've not seen you for a while.  I've never been to Australia, but sure would like to visit.  I hope you get your year off and live in the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

    yes, I like my living place KERALA, "God's own country". I think this is the most beautiful place in this world.Relationships are more valuable here.fresh air and water are here.Most of the people are living in villages.

    I remember my favorite home as far as where it was, but it did need come changing, although the 6 yrs I lived there were beautiful as far as home was concerned. I had taken in my sister for the last year because of her illness and my mother's inability to deal w/it, and it was meant for a single person or a love nest. I was lucky--I'd had both for about 5 years. Then I got a call from my daughter, and though she didn't want to ask, she needed help (Epstein-Barr still in full stage), married, working full-time, one child, pregnant, etc. Of course, I moved. No, I'm not happy and am presently looking for what I had before. I think I'll find it somewhere--not here--unless an idea for some vacant property gells--quite unlikely. I'm headed home to Florida--I love the wildness and tiny areas of the Big Bend Country, the pure love of anywhere on the Gulf Coast--even down to 10,000 islands. The Keys have changed, so not looking there, but anywhere would be okay. Except I'm tempted to head to the southern region for weather--but it would have to be a 'village' and they are hard to find anymore. Water and sun close! Of Lero (above) doesn't appreciate the beauty of our southernmost state, he hasn't been to the right places!

      Hi Teylina, I'm glad to hear you head home to Florida.  I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's illness.  Best wishes on your move and I hope you find a village out there.

    Although I like where I live now, I've always wanted to live in New Zealand. I'm not a big fan of sheep, but the country is beautiful.

      I hope one day you could live in New Zealand then.  I can understand your being not such a big fan of sheep, you being wolf and all. big_smile

    No, I hate the place I am currently living in. It's Cosmo but people here have laid back attitude. I love Mumbai and want to settle there. However, marriage brings me to this place which I am not fond of.

      Maybe you'd get used to your new place, or maybe you could sweet talk hubby to move to Mumbai. smile

    I live on a farm near Perth and I don't know any other place I would rather be. I feel like on a crossroad to every place I have always dreamt to be close to...the ocean I love is just around the corner, the bush I always find refuge in is my home, the two  port towns (small enough to bump into people you know) where I work and have the most friends from are just twenty minutes away by car and my capital city where I go regularly to visit galleries, theatres and other cultural outings is just half an hour away by car....being born in Europe I have always dreamt about place there is no crowded and clouded....I have found the sunniest city in the world and there is where I am staying:)

    Yes.  I live in Pennsylvania atop a mountain and love it.  I've lived in suburbs and city and by the beach.  Though my dream is to be lulled to sleep by perpetually moving waves I've experienced such peace in my mountain I don't wish to trade it with anything else in the world.  It's the closest thing to Heaven I found.

      oh Agnes, I'm happy for you.  Living atop a mountain sounds wonderful and I'm sure the view is to die for.

    I live in Edinburgh, Scotland - capital of an ancient country and would not move from here. It is steeped in history, intrigue, culture, the Scottish Enlightenment and has some of the most fabulous architecture built on hills - a very grand and regal place.
    If I had to move it would be to Paris, France - my second home.

    No. Right now I live in Ohio and it is very flat. I miss the Ramapo mountains in New York where I grew up and the mountains in North Georgia where I went to college.  If I were able to pick up and move right now I would probably go back to Georgia or perhaps South Carolina.
