    Just a random thought after watching the 10th Kingdom...

    I personally would live either in Vancouver, Canada... or Chicago, Illinois.

    Both for the same reason which is film ha. Chicago has my dream school, Columbia College Chicago, and Vancouver is where I have noticed tons of amazing indie films are based out of. Lions Gate... etc etc.


    Where would you guys live and why?

    I'd have to visit a lot of places first. I have though...like Austria. I'd love to live their in Vienna. It was so beautiful.

    Venice was great also as was Quebec and BUDAPPPESTT.

    Prior I wanted to live in a lot of places before traveling and when I reached them I didn't like them enough to live there.

    So, I want to visit Japan...we'll see if I like it enough to live there. ^_^

    Stop squabling up there, you're losing the thread.

    As a perpetual foreigner, the best place on earth for me is always the current one. Right now that happens to be the Costa del Sol in Andalucia, Southern Spain. People call it the "Florida of Europe". If, one day, it gets overcrowded on my mountainside I might move on to the next place which then will become a new best place on earth for me. The interesting thing is the discovery that where-ever I am I recognise the same basic values, instincts and aspirations in people around me.
