If you could move anywhere...
 
I guess DH and I are in a slump because we haven't traveled for over a year and a half (we both used to have jobs where we traveled a lot) and we're a bit restless so we got to dreaming last night about where we'd move if we could go anywhere.

So...if you could move anywhere--in your own country or anywhere in the world--keeping in mind you'd still have to work in some capacity and have an income, where would you go?

San Teodoro, Sardinia during the summer months, Bologna during the cooler period of the year.

(I would have just said Sardinia period, but everyone says it is not very nice there during the winter... then, we could relocate to Bologna, Cris's favourite city in Italy after the summer...)

All provided that Cris can arrange his work to be done entirely on remote administrator:smile: ... or we can always open an ice cream shop in Sardinia, people there are not very good at making top quality ice creams:tongue:

Well, let's see - I'd move to Port Angeles, Washington and buy a house built high enough and with a gorgeous view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and watch the ships from all over the world sail by. The house must also have room to park a 5th wheel.

AND, that's exactly what we did about six months ago!! :biggrin: It's just fascinating to see all the ships on the straits. We have wanderlust also, so the 5th wheel is being packed up as we speak and we leave tomorrow a.m. for a month swing thru Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Oregon..... with lots of stops in Eastern Washington at the wineries!!!!!:rolleyes:

I'd love to live on Maui, it's still my favorite vaca spot. As for work, it really doesn't matter as long as I can stay busy.

I love the home we just bought in November!
So, rather than relocating, I'd rather do the following:
move dh's work here (he's currently got a 1-1/2 hr. commute each way)
move my parents & sister to this area
and, while I'm at it, I'll take some snow in the winter too.

We moved to Utah to be near my son, and to escape the heat, humidity and pollution of Houston. We landed in a beautiful custom, contemporary home on the side of a mountain looking into a canyon. The view is great.

If you are not Mormon, however, steer clear of this place. From the totally absurd liquor laws to the church run executive, legislative, and judiciary systems...they are in charge, don't care if you know it, and if you don't like it leave...
We are.
