Two readers asked me questions about place, and since the same principle applies to both of my answers, I’m combining them.
Alicia (blogless, I think, but if you have one, let me know and I’ll link to you!) asked: “If you had to live in one other country, other than Italy or the US, which would you choose and why? Canada doesn’t count… cuz technically, that’s America-lite. Kidding eh! Seriously, where else would you live?”
And Geggie of So…What Else, What Else, What Else? asked “What’s your fave vacay location outside of the US or Italy?”
Here’s the hard, sad truth: I haven’t been to any other countries other than the United States and Italy. So to choose to *live* somewhere else would be quite a difficult decision.
Would I want an English-speaking country? I’ve always been drawn to Ireland–what a contrast in the weather I currently experience, huh? But all that green?! I just know I’d love it. Plus I love wearing wool.
Or perhaps Switzerland where I can settle in the part that speaks Italian and also find lots of English? Hmm….
Or would I take on the challenge of yet another language? France perhaps? Greece?
Eh, I’d probably pick Australia for both vacation and another country to live in. I’ve never heard of anyone *hating* Australia, so it seems like a good bet.
Plus they speak English! Although I know I’d still have quite a few words to learn….
And, ahem, regarding the vacation, if anyone would like to donate to the plane fare fund, do let me know.
So tell me, readers, what country other than your own
would you choose to live/vacation in and why?
More questions answered tomorrow!
