Where do you want to live?

I love it in California, but it suits my style and work... otherwise i would move. A great vacation is La, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara

I'd love to go on holiday in Iceland, France and a few other European countries... Though I think I'd rather live in Québec since I know both English and French, I think I could sort of fit in even if French isn't my native language.

 

Québec, I think it's sort of a blend of two different cultures that makes up the province and I find that interesting, though that may not be a popular idea among some québécois.

I guess outside of what I was saying, Minnesota, I know for sure is a great place to live and not a bad place to vacation.

If I had to move I'd probably go somewhere where there's a decent internet connection but I'd rather not leave the country so... I guess Milan or another big city.

 

As far as vacation goes: anywhere in Europe and North America.

 

I'll add: I'm never going to Australia, too much stuff that wants to kill you.

honestly some parts of california aren't too bad. like my house for example cost about 220k and it's got 3 beds and 2 baths, and it's about 1800 sq feet not including the garage. it works for me, but the neighborhood it's in is just bad. literally there are at least 7 crackheads in my cul de sac. i would love to move out, but bigger houses means higher taxes and it doesn't feel as cozy as a small one.

I call that expensive for a house.

Like I said, pretty State but cost of living is expensive.

residing: anywhere but the UK (uncle lives in the dominican republic in a job he hates so he doesnt have to come back here). i'd love to live in toronto, seems fast paced and my aunt has just moved there

holidays however tenerife was amazing. went there in 2007 for the last holiday with my mum, dad and my older brother and sister before my parents split up in 2008.

edit: the internet is terrible here, unless you live in a fairly large town or city you only have 1 choice of isps (excluding sky, talktalk, plusnet etc because they use bt lines). even if youre in a highly dense place youd probably only have 2 choices (virgin and bt)

you wont find good internet here unless you live right next to the exchange and have fttp (and thats only 300 down, you can get better in the states/canada/any non-retarded country for cheaper) but you will certainly get wet weather here. in april you get fucking soaked and 5 mins later its sunny again. weather is bipolar. i would explain bt's fibre structure thing but cba. will type up if you want thoooooooooo

Anything is better then what I currently have. I have DSL and if I'm lucky its 12 down. My roommate seems to think this is sufficient enough for a house hold of electronics.

I can't complain too much because I'm not paying for it but when it takes a day and a half to download Witcher III...well now I'm going to complain.

Best place to live, probably United States San Francisco. Or Singapore. 

I've been to Singapore before... But US??? nah.... I said san francisco cos it looks cool on google photo/map......  Or California...... 

Best place to have a vacation??? I don't know. Currently not in a mood of vacation..

Or maybe went to TaiWan FoGuangShan. They had several huge buddhist tample there. A lot of monks are living there. It is perfect if you are into buddhism and stuff.


If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

I've always wanted to move to the North West where it's wet and cold. I've lived in Texas all my life, and I'm getting sick of it being in the 80s in the Fall. :P

Quebec is the last place you want to live in. Its a not even French, its slang french. But you would fit right in if you spoke a bit of it. I tell everyone French is not a language worth learning, and they do teach it in grade school. Its only worth it if you wish to work in the Federal Government, even then its no longer a requirement because no one speaks it.

 

Canada pays more for everything.

 

I would love to live in Spain. So close to everything worth being close to, history at your doorstep.

One thing you forgot, our hurricane season and the Summers that can murder you.  :P

 

But yeah, our rivers are fun to float and canoe down.  Plus, one of the few States that you can bottle fish in.  :D

 

For vacation, it would be traveling and visiting different places since I like to see new sights.

Where to live, I probably prefer a place with a good chunk of property to hunt on, a pond to fish, and a nice garage to build stuff in.  Plus, be as noisy as I want and enjoy the night sky.  But I'm pretty flexible if I have to be, have no problems being near cities or country side.

 

Yeah, I was station out in California for six years.  Pretty State, but no way in hell would I live there permanently.  You think that a steal, should look up property prices here in Alabama especially Houston county.  It is consider the lowest cost of living in the whole country.

I was living in Kendal when Andrew showed her hiney...

Fun Times.
