Nzoner's Game Room>Money no object, where else in the World would you live?
scho63 07:31 AM 05-31-2023
Take away your current location and say you decide you are going to move to the place of your dreams.

Where in the World is it?
US?
An island?
An exotic land?
Europe?
South America?
Asia?

Describe the perfect place, size of your house and what you are going to do. You have 10 years at a minimum in this location.

For me it would be one of three places:

1. Greece-never been there but dream of living an island hopping lifestyle. A small house of 800-1000 sq ft. 2 bed/2 bath and a nice outdoor area with a small plunge pool.

2. Italy-been there twice and love the location to travel all over Europe. The laid back life and food would turn me into a fat guy again but all the walking cities would help. Plus all the history. Again same size house

3. Vietnam-I would buy a nice 2Bd/2Ba condo on the beach in Nha Trang and travel all over Asia. Thailand, the Philippines, Bali, Indonesia and more. Love Vienamese food and happy endings.

So where are you headed? :-)

My own private island.

With a Bond villain hideout.

Yuck.

Weather is great in L.A. but fuck all that traffic. Chicago,ok, but fuck that winter. Vegas is gross. Fuck Florida. Houston I would consider a punishment.

I traveled the world for about 7 years. There is no where I’d live but the USA. The grass ain’t greener. I’m where I’d rather be.

You’ll miss the culture, easy slang and a bunch of other topics you’d never considered until you are away for years.

Agreed.


I wouldn't live in LA if you paid me. And I was offered substantial raises twice and didn't think about it for more than a few seconds either time. The traffic is the worst; a 2.5 hour drive to work just 36 miles away. One way. And it never got better, regardless of time of day or day of the week. i remember one time having to drive into LA on a Sunday morning around 4am. It was still bumper to bumper parking lots most of the way in, and took 2.5 hours.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg; so many things about LA to hate I can't list them all here.


Houston is kind of a shithole. I might be able to manage in FL just because of the fishing. They got some giant-ass bones in MIA right off the beach.

LA traffic only affects those who don't know how to circumnavigate it. My commute is 6 minutes. It takes me nearly two months to go through a tank of gas.

I think I see the problem.

My retirement plans are definitely outside the US. I grew up near the water and I plan to return to live by the water again someday.

Some places high on my list:
Marbella, Spain
Menorca, Spain
Mallorca, Spain
Cadiz, Spain

If not Spain, then some beach town (ON THE PACIFIC SIDE) in Central or South America. And if not Central or South America, then Italy or Greece.

I lived in SE Asia previously and would NOT do that again (too difficult to navigate and the food and traffic are not to my liking). And I lived in the Caribbean previously and I would NOT do that again, either (don't really relate to the people).

I live in Roatan for a few years...let me know if you make it!

If I had to stay in US, Laguna Beach/Newport area would be primo. Anywhere else? Switzerland- Lucerne or Gstaad. I'm not that difficult.

As I mature (I know right) I appreciate my family and friends too much but 3 of the most interesting places IMHO:

1. New Zealand
2. South Africa
3. British Columbia

There's more but I'll leave it at that. If you've never been to NZ or BC add it to your bucket list. However, I'm an American and my family is here so *1 is the USA.

However, S„o Paulo is a neat place to get led into a seedy room by a hot Brazilian 20 something and wake up in dirty bathtub full of ice missing a kidney.

I like visiting places, but I like where I live.

Also, it is the home of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Lol, when I lived 17 miles from work, the drive was still 1.5 hours. When I first moved to Temescal Canyon, we didnít get our mail delivered; had to drive 10 miles into Corona to get it; 45 minutes one way.


Driving in SoCal is sitting in parking lots moving at about 5 mph.

With money no object, I'd have a place in Hawaii, probably Big Island. Maybe Oahu just to be closer to convenience stuff if wanted/needed.

Mrs. Idaho and I went last year, and I fell in love with it.

Our home would come equipped with a boat for tooling from island to island as needed.

Money no object? Definitely gotta go with Hawaii. Preferably with enough land that the house could be secluded. The house doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just a modest home that meets my needs.

South Africa? I spent some time in Durban and it was dystopian. The stores were all locked and you had to ring to get in, and the houses were all surrounded in razor wire.

I went further north into Zululand and it was pretty, but also pretty rural.

You must have found a different place than I did. I've heard that Cape Town is nice, so is that your destination?
