Reader Question: Where to live

You can live in any other city for a year, what city and why?

I’d love to live in London–maybe for a lot more than a year! If I could afford it, I’d seriously consider moving there. I love all the different neighborhoods with their different personalities; I love the history that you can just feel walking through certain parts; I love the subway (tube!) system that allows you to go just about everywhere in the city; I love the food (had some of the best Indian food in my life there!); and I love that it’s close to a lot of other places I love, like Edinburgh and the Highlands, and makes for much easier travel to all the places I’d like to see in Europe and Asia than here on the other side of the ocean.


Now I turn the question to you, blog readers! What would your dream city be?

Prague! It has such interesting architecture (that has been largely untouched by any wars) and a history that we don't get to hear much about in the non-slavic world. I'd like instant language to come with the year of living there, though. :)

I'd do the other way round and fly back to the States wishing I could live in New York (as I'm in Spain right now).

I'd like to live in either London or Paris.
For all the reasons you said in your post (for London), and because Paris is so romantic and full of history. Plus, I've been learning French for years.

Hmm . . . I'm not sure. As long as I can live in a nice, big house with no neighbors to bother me, I don't think I'd care about the city I was in . . . though I'd prefer a country setting to a big city . . . oh, and I'd also like there to be lots of sun and not too much rain or snow. I'm not sure I'd want to be out of the United States either . . . but since I was born, raised, and still live in Arizona, I don't have a lot of experience with other places. I've traveled to Utah, Oregon, Wyoming, Idaho, and California . . . but all for very brief visits. Yeah, I'm not familiar enough with what's out there to pick a new place to live.

Gee, I'm feeling pretty pathetic about now. ;-)
