I would move back to Hawaii in a heartbeat.
Back to Holland is a very close, almost tie with Hawaii
Costa Rica
Indonesia
French Polynesia
New Zealand
Japan
Sweden(back to my ancestral roots)


there are SO many places that are strong contenders, it's really nice to day dream about, that's for sure.

East, west, home's best. There's really nowhere else in the world I'd want to live, and I'm lucky enough to have visited many places over the last few years. The climate is perfect here, neither too hot or too cold, year round. This is really a beautiful place to live, just far enough away from the big city and as far west as you can go without falling into the Pacific.
If I was forced to live in a big city it would be San Francisco or San Diego.
I'm very happy to be a California girl.

Interesting. I have family that live in WA at various locations along the coast and I asked them specifically about spiders. None of them have ever had problems with them. My parents, the older of my brothers, and I lived there when I was really young and as far as I know we never had problems with them. When my husband and I were researching places to live, everything we looked at mentioned that there were a couple of varieties of poisonous spiders but that they were not numerous and relatively easy to avoid and several places mentioned that spiders in general were not usually a problem. And when the hubby and I went out to visit for my sister's wedding we saw nothing of them.

Where in WA were you at? Is it maybe something isolated to a specific region? I wonder if it's sonething reated to climate change. How long ago were you there? I ask because the hubby and I would still like to move there eventually and if the spider problem is as bad as you say, I'm definitely going to need to get past this phobia before we get there.

I was born and raised in San Diego, California (and after age 14 in Vista which is in North San Diego County). Vista, or anywhere in the San Diego area, would definitely be on my list.

In no particular order, the remaining places are:

2. Alaska
3. Pretty much anywhere in the U.S. midwest
4. Australia
5. Canada (specifically either British Columbia or Alberta)
6. New Zealand

I have been throughout the midwest, but other than about an hour (all of it in the car) in Canada (Winnipeg) I haven't been to any of the last five locations I chose.
