If you could live anywhere...

Where would you live? I know that there are a lot of factors that go into that decision like where your job/school is and proximity to family and sometimes money, but if those factors weren't an issue, where would you live?

Matt and I have talked a lot about it lately because his job is becoming too much for us to handle. Matt being gone all the time sucks. So we've been looking into other jobs. Ideally we'd stay in the area because we own our home and because of my job, but we're not ruling out the possibility of moving somewhere else.

I know Matt has some pretty strong objections to Utah (which I do not share) but no strong inclination towards any other place either. I would love to live abroad for a little while (definitely not for a long time or permanently) and we've already shot that one down once. Right after Matt started working in Australia a few years back, they offered him a position there. I still regret him turning it down, but at the time we still had a lot of family close here. Since then, our extended families have spread out some and our tie to North Carolina isn't as strong.

Recently, we've had an opportunity arise to live in the UK for a year in addition to making a permanent move to California. Now, I'm not sure where in the UK it would be, but most likely somewhere in England and close to London. I jumped at the idea more than I thought I would. It seems crazy to me that I would drop my life here and live across the ocean in a foreign country, but I would do it in a heart beat. I balked at the idea of living in California, but the thought of being in England for Christmas fills my head with romantic images of snow covered country lanes and funny paper hats. And that got me thinking: Where would you live if you could move anywhere? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I felt the same way when we were deciding where to live after college. It seemed odd that we'd pick Korea (it still does for some people), but we jumped at the chance and LOVED it! If you have the chance to go somewhere cool and/or exotic, go for it!
