Nzoner's Game Room>Money no object, where else in the World would you live?

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? :-)

Aruba. Did our 25th anniversary there. That place was not only beautiful, but the people were genuinely nice as hell, the place is very safe and again...gorgeous. Best beaches I've ever seen.

Expensive as hell though.

A beach front house in San Diego would be fine with me.

If I wanted to be more secluded, a nice spread with some land on Kauai would be a good choice. Man the vibe of that island was just so relaxing.

First choice would probably be the Florida gulf coast. Iím thinking somewhere between Clearwater and Naples. Anywhere in between there like Sarasota, Siesta Key, Sanibel Island, Ana Maria Island, etc. is fine.

San Diego or somewhere there about would probably be my next choice. I just canít stand seeing all the homeless people in SoCal.

Either way, Iíd have a 3,000-4,000 square foot home right on the water and Iíd spend most of my time around the water, at the pool, on the beach, on my mini yacht (Iíve always wanted a yacht).
If itís SoCal Iím going with Newport Beach. I have a buddy that grew up there and itís got everything you need within walking distance and the cops keep the homeless people and rif raf out.

So this seems like a odd choice. You do need private security but not as much as South Africa. Nairobi is a travel hub, fairly stable, and Kenya is a country on the rise. The climate is nice with the city being at altitude. Nature and parks can't be beat.
Holy shit. I figured it would be balls hot. Avg high between 81 and 74 all year. Im in.

Iím not familiar with Newport Beach but it looks beautiful and gives great access to LA, San Diego, Carlsbad, etc. If what you say about them keeping out the homeless is true, then sign me up.

Newport is awesome. I have a time share condo in Newport and go there for a week or two every year.

I'd mentioned Laguna Beach instead, which is about five miles down the road, mostly because I've never been sure what Newport's boundaries are and think Laguna is more pedestrian-friendly. But parts of Newport are pedestrian friendly out on the Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island. And then somewhere between Newport and Laguna is the town of Corona Del Mar, which is also pedestrian-friendly, though it's kind of bifurcated by the main road, which makes it a little more challenging than walking around in Laguna.

I'd put Laguna at #1, but I'd pick any of these three places without hesitation. And in any of them you'll see more Lamborghinis than panhandling vagrants. They're in Orange County, which is a conservative stronghold in SoCal, and I suspect they bus any vagrants up to Los Angeles or something.

Now youíre talking my language. I actually did spend a day at Aliso Beach in Laguna Niguel, which is apparently separate from Laguna Beach..? That was news to me. Anyway, yeah, beautiful place and we didnít see a single vagrant the entire time. That was a stark contrast to the time we spent in San Diego and LA.

Nairobi National Park is literally right outside the city too.

Laguna Niguel is just up the hill inland from Laguna Beach. It looks like Aliso Beach is actually in Laguna Beach, though it's outside the main part of town.

My understanding is that Niguel is more affordable since it's a mile or so inland. That doesn't mean that it's cheap by any means, but it's $1 million dollar homes instead of $8 million homes.

When my wife and I go out there, we have a little contest about who'll see the first supercar. The first sighting is almost always on the drive from the airport to the condo.
