Best place you've ever lived?
For those of you who have moved around a bit, where's the best place you have ever lived? What made it stand out to you? Do you still live there now? If not, would you consider moving back, or is it just a place you associate with a certain time in your life, for example university/college?
My all-time favorite place to live was Sardinia, Italy. I was there for about 2 years in high school because of my father's naval career. It's a spectacular place with amazing food, people, history, culture, geography, geology, and more.
I would love to move back, but I'm not sure how good of an idea it would be. The base closed, the people are gone, and I've forgotten more of my Italian than I'd like to admit. But, I do plan to go back to show my future family about all of the great places I lived growing up!
Littleton, Colorado. Mountains and escape were nearby and the ability to hike and fish. City and all its amenities were very close. Loved it.
Longlac, Ontario Canada is a relatively small town in Northern Ontario "chalk-full" of nice souls, peaceful and quite sleepy during the winter months. A place where my most valuable possession slows down (i.e. time).
Where I'm living right now. Spring, Texas. Nice area, decent weather, little to be bored with, and no irritating college students.
I think of all the places I have lived, and there have been a lot, Thousand Oak, California was my favorite. We lived in a area that was both rural and suburban so it was the best of both worlds. We had horse property, belonged to a horse club and an archery club. We were very active then during the 70's. I assume it has changed quite a bit.
I grew up in El Paso, TX. Despite its bad reputation, it has been an excellent place to grow up and has some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. I now go to college in Austin, TX. It is also amazing. There is live music everywhere, a great night life, and everything and anything you can dream of doing outdoors. I have been very blessed.
Thank you all for your comments! It's so interesting to read about why people love living in a certain place. My answer to the question would be Augsburg, Germany which is where I'm living for the time being. It's quite a small city, which really suits me as I don't really like big cities too much, but it has everything you could possibly want - shopping centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, lots of parks.. even a forest!
I wish I could choose all of your answers as the best answer, but I chose rmcleve as she was the most informative and it's the only place you've mentioned that I've also been to
The best place i ever lived was my carefree times with my best friends.
The place we used to roam around aimlessly was Digboi, a small hilly beautiful town in North Eastern State of Assm in India.
The carefree childhood made the place, time stand out to me always.
No I don live there now. I live in Guwahati with my small family.
Hey, Rebecca......is there any way that you know of, that i can go back to the particular time? Because I do not consider to move back to that place....i do seriously consider to go back to that place in those time in my childhood actually.
Thank you....you inspired some memory to think again today and to get lost in that place and to walk those lanes.
This is a tempting question, which I would love to answer. I live in New Delhi, India and have lived here for most of my life. It is my favorite, because it is a perfect blend of traditional and modern. India and almost all its places have very rich culture, full of art and architecture, natural beauty and to top it all, hospitable people.
