First person to say "Japan" wins the Indie Badge or something.
It's a bit like saying "Europe".
anywhere on the west coast San Francisco or further north
that said, there's so much i've not seen. it'd have to be somewhere north and near the coast though, cause otherwise summers would be too hot
I love everything about it. Women, steaks, wine, weather, sights etc etc. Such a beautiful place.
I think the USA is a pretty cool place. I'd get well fat if i lived there though.
but seriously though, Japan.
I'd live in Japan too. I only said the "indie badge" thing to prevent someone else going "Ugh, that's just the INDIE thing to say" at anyone who said Japan.
this is prob some protected house. Not many places in Japan look like that. But Japan is a great country I agree.
so you wouldn't be very likely to find someone living in them. And, being temples, they would have always been protected.
I just meant that the Japanese countryside looks so beautiful. The hills covered in dense black trees and the glassy looking lakes are so cool and tranquil. There's something I quite like about being in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country.
And erm... Norway... all of them really, oh god Cuba! Japan! America!
Goderich is the furthest North. I go to drink in Sarnia, cause I live just the other side of the bridge of it.
yes, it IS everything you expected.
California in terms of where I live, but the whole country is pretty fascinating.
and maybe the football too
mostly just the food though
i want to live in benelux though
I have dined in the best restaurants in Milan, Turin, Verona, Bologna, Turin, Florence & the Umbrian towns and a few in Venice, Rome, Bari & the alpine regions. Many were superb - particularly in central Italy.
However, Brussels also has some wonderful places to eat.
non-touristy, traditional parts. Not very exotic, but I don't care.
in southern spain, in a posh part void of scumbag english/scotch tourists.
I'm going over for summer. Woo!
I like Spain but the only places I've been have far more English twats than Spaniards, all the cafes and shops are like ones on Scarborough sea front and the Spanish people all reply in English to my broken Spanish :( I want to go to a place without British tourists, really.
The Vatican City
The first two are my dream destinations. Australia looks cool, but there's so many Brits living over there now I can't see it being long before it's transformed into Ibiza or some other English-ruined shithole.
And sometimes Japan.
I'm not hard enough to live in Moscow.
I went to school in stockholm for a month-ish
My first serious gf was long distance birmingham to djursholm in sweden
I love swedish Cinema.
Ah. Sweden :(
it's really really really cold
Im so jealous of you.
I told my first gf i loved her outside the Nobel Museum in gamla stan, which was covered in fairy lights on the 2nd jan under a deserted christmas tree while it snowed.
Sooo many good memories of stockholm, i need to teach myself swedish again and get a job there! Taby, Gamla stan, djursholm, mm kungshallen yum!, AVA Gymnnasium, best city EVER. Solentuna, Danderyd.
Sweden is highly overrated
i think its like a swapsies thing.
US. in particular:
new york state
can that be part of the plan?
but I'm counting it anyway.
beautiful country, can't wait to see more of it.
but i'd like to live in the states too. somewhere north eastern.
It's in Illinois, you know.
Chicago itself is great, but it's in the middle of nowhere.
of nowhere, because its so awesome that it overwhelms that problem.
-England, probably southern.
-Isle of Man, though that's more when I'm older probably.
--The above 3 aren't necessarily a fascination, I just am really happy being over/love being over whenever I am. I feel more of a "pull" towards the countries anyway, I don't know, lol.
-Australia or New Zealand, although I've never been.
-If I stay in the States: Boston, Washington DC, possibly Baltimore, or Charleston...mainly east coast-centric.
Thailand might be cool. My family nearly had an opportunity to move to Bangkok, but the position my dad was interviewing for was re-absorbed to the country, which nearly resulted in us re-locating to Nanjing, but I really have not interest in moving to China apart from being more easily able to travel to places in the area.
berlin maybe, but most likely not
and all the Scandinavian ones
than a bog-standard stroke or a terminal cancer here
at some point. This is definately going to happen and is in no way shape or form a pipe dream than never comes to fruition.
When I was there last i saw a BEAR. It did not kill or scalp me, although i think it wanted to, it had a thing happening
and move around, I'd like a period in a big city like Beijing and then to explore the more remote, mountainous areas towards the north-west. Japan would be pretty cool as well, by the way.
Would like to live in: Central Asia, and Russian Far East.
Have lived in: Southern China, Poland.
Have no interest in: North / South / Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa.
I definitely want to live abroad at some point, but I'm not endlessly fascinated with any one place in particular. Standout: I've wanted to visit the UK for a really long time, but I probably wouldn't want to live there. Except maybe for a year in Scotland still. Maybe.
and in particular a flat near / on the Great Western Road in Glasgow
next life perhaps
I spent a week there as a kid, when they still had trams!
everyone knows that japan is awesome
i'd want to live in iceland. Sigur Ros made me want to, specifically Heima made me want to
mmmmmmmmm :) :)
In terms of living in, probably New York.
I have lived there already but would do anything to live there again.
it's a great place, but it's very small and touristy (and beautiful and relaxed) - I can't really imagine the appeal of living there unless you just want to get battered on San Pedro (hallucinogenic cactus, prevalent in the area) all the time. In fact, come to think of it, it would be a very cool escapist place to live.
for actual living in. I wouldn't really want to sacrifice a great deal for living somewhere nice/interesting, so I'll go with the more European countries...
I would like to spend quite a while in Japan, but not long enough for it to be 'living' there, and it definitely doesn't fall under 'indie', given that complete fangirlism is like the anti-indie.
The Maldives - even though they wont be here in about a hundred years. I doubt I'll live to 123 anyway! Though it'd be fun when I had to say my age.
but USA is big so I let you off.
I'd go to Russia.
I like England. I would like to stay in England.
now whenever i go anywhere i don't like it as much as home.
there was some kind of show called moutain ranger (at leat it had one in it) or something like that, set in the rockies hence my fascination. it also seems to have that very urbany arty thing oging on. though i'd probs be in a chalet cos me be a wimp.
Japan, maybe. My boyfriend and I have talked about taking Japanese language lessons cos he'd like to live out there at one point...I'm ambivalent. It doesn't appeal on any cultural/visual level (apart from getting clothes in my size and the gadgetry). It'd be a cool language to learn, though.
so I can be part of CRATEL and attend the wichita university, and Japan because of the culture and the fact that parts of it are breatakingly beautiful obligatory link... http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/places/images/photos/photo_lg_japan.jpg
i love it dearly and fully intend to retire there. anywhere but brussels. antwerp i could live in.
bahrain. i have a weird fixation on it, don't know if i could live there but i certainly want to visit.
yemen - ditto.
specifically Boston, MA.
Great place and it has lots of Newbury Comics
