Interesting thread

Most folk have understandably responded in the context of the destination being for a holiday. Would you choose the same place for a long term destination - like maybe for ever?

While the lure of a tropical beach can be considerable one tends to forget the drawbacks - mosquitos, sand flies, boredom. Oh yes, boredom sets in relatively quickly unless you have other interests. Lads, I do not (necessarily) mean the dusky maidens. Also, it is rare that within easy reach of the sun drenched tropical beach will the infrastructure you would probably desire before long - a comfy bed, food, transport, communications.

I have one colleague who did indeed opt for the sun drenched beach in total ie lives in a hut made of discarded wooden pallets, eats lots of fish and grows his own vegetables - with the help of more than one dusky maiden. Supported by a UK "very early retirement" pension he lives quite well. Since he is in the outer parts of the Phillipines I do not get to hear from him a lot, but he does communicate at times.

My Mrs and I often ask where in the world we may want to live when my responsibilities to my parents have gone and Jnr has finished Uni and embarked on his own life (very likely outside of UK)? A first step for us will be to travel a lot - when we have finished paying for Jnr at Uni. Maybe that will help us decide. We rather like the Algarve and at least that is within easy reach. I have a yen to visit Costa Rica.

I'd say France, perhaps Bordeaux or Calais.
And balberney in scotland. Actually, anywhere in scotland but my dad used to work there before i was born.
And i agree with cheery, too. Discworld. With a large umbrella and anti-mime-artist-makeup machine :lol: :lol:

I'd like to visit Sky Village in Arizona. But I wouldn't want to live there.

I'd stay where I am now for good if work is available. Everything I want is within easy reach (including the airport :wink: ) And of course, if we moved, how would Mr Dotsie get to see his footie?

A friend of mine of the Cunning Artificer Board has been there. He's really into astronomy. It's fantastic for star gazing. :D Sharlene and I have been to the Chiricahua Mountains, the hoodoos there are incredible. HERE are some pictures I took there. :D

I would love to live in Negril.
Its clean and friendly, the transport is actually very good (especially the zip lines) and they even have....electricity.
I have never suffered from insect bites in warm places and boredom (sitting near a bar the scenery) sounds like a dream to me.

Failing that, Coogee, NSW, Australia. Close to Sydney, but far enough away not to be surrounded by the city
