Where would it be?

Rarely have I been so glad to see a Friday arrive, with a fairly quiet weekend ahead. It’s been a week of sadness and stress in our little household, so I’m really hoping the next few days will be a low-key time for relaxing and regrouping.

NaBloPoMo November 2012 Prompt
Friday, November 2, 2012:

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

This is a tough one, because despite the fact that my current home isn’t new or fancy, and my current city has its own share of troubles, I am perfectly happy and content to live exactly where and with whom I am living.

I really haven’t traveled all that much, so my experience with other places is relatively limited (and, when it comes to non-North American destinations, non-existent).

I can say that I am more city than country… that I tend to prefer restaurants and theatre to camping and hiking… that I’d rather live near water than not.

I can say that I fell in love with New York City both times I visited, and have always dreamed of living there, at least for a time.

I can say that I long to visit several countries across the sea.

I can say that one of my favourite travel-related sayings is, “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

But that doesn’t really answer the question, does it?

I think I’ll just stay put.

How about you? Where would you live?

    Born and raised in NYC and it is my home and probably always will be. Right now we are all saddened by Hurricane Sandy, but the spirit of New Yorkers will not be broken. I love vacations, but will always return here.

    I love living in Victoria and don’t think I would want to live anywhere else. And yes, even now with all the rain and grey days I still want to live here (but I could gladly visit somewhere brighter for a while right now). That’s why traveling appeals to me. I can go and see many different places, enjoy the sites and experiences and always know at the end of the trip I’m going back home.

      Gwen, I totally agree about travel! That’s partly why I moved here – so that by being a little more central, I’d have more of an opportunity to travel on my meagre budget.

    I’d love to travel to many places in the world but to live there is another story. maybe I’m a little like you. I’m happy where i am. Would love to see and visit beautiful places but home is where I’d eventually go back to.

    Great post!! Sometimes, I think right where we are at–is where we are supposed to be. I just hope it isn’t true for long in my case…lol.

    Cheers, Jenn
