I wonder what your vacation hut looks like?

 

No vacation hut.  But I will take "The Rockies" ,a log cabin surrounded by wild flowers and my garden. Down below my porch is a clear water brook where the rainbow trout glisten in the sun. I can see the snow capped mountains from where I stand and welcome those chinook winds whenever they pass. The air is so pure. Glorious nature and all her wealth hold nothing back.

When night falls, the stars come out, stars so bright you can put your hand out and almost touch them.

Breathtaking and serene....the way living should be.

Monday 25th

 

Buonasera,

 

Very interesting post ...

 

I definitely would choose the Adriatic Coast of Italia ... We had just purchased a small apartment there ...

 

The other destinations:

* Abruzzi

* Umbria

* Puglia

* Liguria

* Tuscan Coast ( San Vincenzo and Livorno )

 

Though we have some professional commitments in Madrid Capital, we only rent a Loft here and do not enjoy the climate here. Too too dry ...

 

Have a lovely week,

Margaux

Kaneo,

 

Happy 4th of July ... I just rec´d a reply on this post from you in reference to where in the USA, would I relocate to, if I was going to relocate ...

 

I would select somewhere south of Washington D.C. / Old Alexandria, Virginia, Atlanta and Saint Augustine, Florida or Austin, Texas ...

 

Why?

 

I truly love Adriatic Italia where we have a condo, and enjoy renting in Madrid; on a cultural level, the art exhibitions, museums, theatre, film, book fairs, dining scene, tapas crawling and from here one can be in any other point of the country within 1.5 hours ...  

 

 

East Coast ...

 

Washington D.C. has the cultural entertainment I am accustomed too; theatre, film, museums .

 

and international dining ...

 

Alexandria Old Town is cheaper than D.C. for an apartment ...

 

Atlanta :  Close to St. Augustine where I have my older daughter living ...

 

St. Augustine: It is a lovely northeastern small city, with a pleasant ambiance --- and has some culture to keep me enticed ...  

 

I am a sea person, born on the ocean and have never lived in a house, only apartments  &  Do not care much for too cold or too hot weather ...

 

However, this is very doubtful Kaneo as I am a legal resident in Italia, as my dad was Italian and so is my hubby.

 

Have a lovely 4th,

Margaux. Cintrano.

Buon Giorno Kaneo,

 

Thanks for your lovely note.

 

I hope you are having a wonderful summer.

 

I have always loved San Francisco, however, with one daughter in Zürich, Switzerland and other on the Eastcoast in the USA, if I were to ever live in the USA, the Washington D.C. / Northern Virginia area would be more suitable considering the distance required to flying abroad ... We have a Condo in Puglia, Italia as well, thus, California, is 5 hours flying from Washington D.C. and it just is too too far.

 

Here are some actual  photos, I had to scan; when we lived in Crete, Greece for a year in Port Hania.

 

(1) Port Hania, Crete and (2) Central Market - Crete Cheeses.

Kaneo, all my best regards, for a wonderful summer.

Kippers,

 

For the last 25 years, the Vet has been specialising in hereditary / genetic Dna units of viruses in reference to grazing, as nitrogenous plant and floral life, for example: corn,rye, soy, wheat, nightshades, weeds and thistle varieties accumulate heavy nitrate content and like people, cattle and dairy cows have hereditary illnesses for example: TB, Cancer, infertility, urinary and bladder issues and numerous other serious diseases, some rare as well as common in most species.

 

He investigates medical preventives, new sustainable and ecological nutrition, food supply availability and laboratory and pharmac. medicine development.

 

All medical interns do a bit of the "dirty" work which has to be done and is part of the learning process in Medical Fields. He had worked with dogs & cats, different types of livestock as well many years ago.

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Boston, MA
  • Portland, OR
  • Chicago, IL

 

Lots of good food in all these cities! All of them have wonderfully unique food cultures to accompany their own unique cultures.

post #112 of 139

I was actually born and raised in Chania.  If I had to move back to Greece I'd go there, but I don't intend to ever go back.

 

I picture myself living in Europe part time in my future and my first choice would be London. 

 

- London (because it's close to Paris)

- Paris (because it's close to London)

- Berlin

 

In the US it's hard to say, I've always been an east coast girl, have never been to the other side of the US except for one wild and crazy trip to Vegas.  But considering how much I love the climate of southern Europe I'd probably feel quite comfortable in California.  Since I don't know what it's really really like there I can only conjure up these places in my fantasies, so Malibu is at the top of my list.

I’ve been very fortunate in my life and have been to 31 of our 50 States, as well as the District of Columbia.  We have been to more cities than I can remember.  All of them beautiful in their own ways.  And DH and I have yet to find somewhere to move.

I would move back to your native Islands in a heartbeat, I have a very fond, heartfelt LOVE for Hawaii. . .honest and for true.

 

Couldn't move back home. Bermuda, as great as some of it is, is too small. The money is great, but everything else reflects that. If/when I go, it's gonna be to open the islands 3rd tattoo parlor and ink people flocking off the boats on the daily.

 

WOULD GO BACK TO:

Oahu

Holland

London(If I were uber loaded)

South Of France

Almost any Pacific Coat in central America . . .Nica, or Costa Rica in particular

Southern CAli

Philipines

Indonesia

 

To really sit down and think about it, I could ramble a lot more than I typically do, but those are off the top of my head. I LOVE THE USA, and am grateful to call it home, but I prefer a simple, more easy laid back kinda life.

i love where i am now and moved here for the love of my wife but now i love the people land and location.  salzburg austria.  socialist government takes care of its people and the pensioners.  3 hours to the italian coast by car.  1 hour to munich for octoberfest,  2 hour flight to crete and only 200€ return for the flight.  salzburg is 45 min from the epicenter of europe in Bad Aussie.  if you travel a equal distance from that in any direction you come to the end of europe.  ski in winter so many clean fresh lakes to swim in the summer.  and not that i noticed because i am married but the austrian girls are hot (from what i am told)

I don't ask for much. I am a simple gal. Maybe move to a hut, yes a hut. It doesn't need to be a big one, just big enough for two.
