Re: If you could live anywhere...

I'd live somewhere that has excellent education, heath care, open borders and free from bigots, racists and homophobia. Where is this place? I dunno either.

Re: If you could live anywhere...

I'd rotate between Bath, Bourton-on-the-water and Lake Garda. Maybe a bit of New York in there too.

Lake Garda
A close friend of mine lived on Lake Garda for decades (Gardone Riviera), a couple hundred meters from the Vittoriale.

Now he lives in Ticino!

(well, sort of, Campione, actually )

Re: If you could live anywhere...

That's stunning Frank!

Made the mistake of asking OH this question. His top three are...

1. the lake view apartment we currently live in, but it's being demolished in summer because..."we've got a fridge full of food and a pizza shop on the corner."

2. Marakas Beach Apartments in western Crete http://www.marakasbeach-apts.gr/ because..."it's on the beach, and it's got a Kosmas Taverna and a cool gyros shop across the road."

3. H10 Lanzarote Princess, Playa Blanca, Lanzarote because..."it's got an all you can eat buffet and there's the beach and Burger King across the road."

Thinking with his belly....?

Re: If you could live anywhere...

Were I a decade or so younger, or less wobbly-knee'd, these would check many of my boxes:

A few Lake Superior possibilities (that's Da Yoo Pee for all y'all non-cognoscenti ) on offer at the moment:

Including this rather nice 532 acres with 2 miles of waterfront:

Alas, I haven't figured out how to turn back time...
