Berndy, would you go to Avalon on catalina island or what’s the city on the other side of the island? we went there once, loved it, super cool place!
KYHeirloomer, I live about an hours drive from the Dare and Currituck Outer Banks, and used to work in Corolla. I loved working there, but there is one main thing that I dread about the Outer Banks - hurricane season. I worked in Corolla when Isabel came through in 2003 and it was a mess trying to get back in there afterwards. Irene was even worse - Rodanthe and Hatteras Island are still having trouble with Route 12 almost 2 years after Irene and almost a year after Sandy.I've said it before and still believe it: if Kentucky had a coastline there'd be no need to go to heaven, cuz you'd already be there. So it's hard to come up with alternatives. If I had to move, however, it would be somewhere where a city was within shooting distance, but not in the city itself. So, among my choices:
1. Anywhere along the North Carolina coast, but preferably the Outer Banks.
Bummer! Ahh my stupid phone isn't user friendly on here for some reason, I think it let me use the Smileys here once maybe twice? Grr. I bet you miss your family? I haven't lived back home since I was 17 and joined the army, sometimes I miss them! Sometimes. LolMe too! oh wait, I sold my quarter acre lot and 3000+ ft home in Hawaii and moved to the middle of the desert (you can use the emoticons in the bar above with the smiley face)
Stellenbosch is a nice place to live. It's the most European town in South Africa that I'm aware of, next to Cape Town.Such a nice question when its so cold and dreary outside.
After some thought here is my top 5 (and Im afraid I have moved away from within the US):
Edinburgh, UK - yes its cold, but beautiful and with all the art and culture I could wish for.
Berlin, germany. Has amazin live music scene, history, art, a great palce to learn about the last 100 years.
Stellenbosch, SA. South Africas second oldest town. It isn't well known but its an absolutely beautiful city with so much going on.
Paris, france - if I had a lot more money than I do now! I have been there only for a few days at a time but the architecture is amazing.
