Okay I'll start: Costa Del Sol, Espana (somewhere just East of Nerja).<br />

I ain't going no where. I'm not leaving the U.S. and when I retired I'm staying in this old house, everything I need is and will be still withinn 10 miles from my house.<br><br>
What's in España that you won't find here, Syrillian?<br><br>
Why move to France BenHagerty when you can live here in the U.S. in a very similar city, it's called San Francisco.

It's not that I am not patriotic - I'm an ex-Marine, I have served and love our country.<br><br>
I just have a wander-lust. Spain has been my fixation for a number of years, I've been there 5 times over the last 11 years. I also love Greece - I dream about that too.<br><br>
I guess it's the magic and allure of the Mediterranean Sea. The Odyssey and The Iliad are inspirational.<br><br>
There are also many places in the US that I would love to live - but the cost of living and houseing is astronomical. A small 3 bedroom, 2500 sqft house in my area costs US$550,000+, even in this housing market lull. On the coast? Forget about it.<br><br>
The bottom line is that I would like to live by the ocean, sea or other LARGE body of water. Living this dream in the US is quickly diminishing for an individual in my income bracket.<br><br>
I'm 38 now, and have another 25 years on the workforce, what's it gonna be like at the end of that time? kinda dreaming and preparing.<br><br>
Maybe I'll win the lottery and will be able to live in Point Loma, California - aaaahhh... good times were had in Southern California! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Really nice people up there. Or maybe Alaska.<br />
<br />
I'm sick and tired of living where it's 90 degrees every day in October.

I would like to go into the mountians of Japan and never ever be bothered by anyone. I wouldnt even bring a computer. I am a big fan of nature and being completely surrounded by it.<br />

</div>That too. This weekend I went out to my grandparent's old ranch, which is a good 10 miles back in the sticks and just chilled the whole time. Just layed in a hammock out on the back porch that overlooks their lake. It's so nice to just be in seclusion for a while and not have to meet anybody's demands. Away from the city, road noise, light pollution, etc. That's where I want to be when I'm in my golden years. *stares off into space*

</div>Ya, Oregon was nice. I lived there for a couple of years (Eugene). You'll have to love the rain! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> But man is it greeeen. Beautiful. Portland has my favorite Bookstore, Powell's. It is literally several city blocks - ginormous! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Seattle is also a nice city, but again.... sooooo much rain.

Actually I think a great place would be Alaska. I have an Uncle who lived up there for a few years and just loved it. He fished all day and just hung the rest of the time.<br />
