Where Would You Like To Live?

Mon Nov 14, 2005 12:49 am

I am a major fan of both the cultural and geographical Middle East and I have, to date, lived in Cairo, Egypt. Due to my interest, I am seriously considering shifting my career to one which revolves around this fascinating part of the world with the intention of living, working and learning in a variety of countries therein. I am also seriously contemplating undertaking another degree in the next few years, namely in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies. Now, where would you like to live and why?

Somewhere where it is warm all year long. I am already sick and tired of the winter despite it just begun, I hate the cold weather and that it is already dark at 5 in the afternoon.

Patrick, I know how you feel. I'm feeling so depressed at the moment. It's bloody frezing and dark all the time, I just wish I lived somewhere where the temperature dosen't drop below 20C and the sun shines most of the year. One can dream though.

Not much room in Darling Harbour. Its all hotels and shops but is very nice. For me it would be Point Piper, next door to Garden Island (the NAvy base) in Sydney. Right in the way of approaches for 16R and 16L plus you get a great view of the harbour and can see all the big ships coming in. The only proble would be the horns on the ships. So that is ships, planes,views, what more could one want.

Although I'll have to save up and buy out those rich bastards that own all the houses.

On second thought, I fell in love with Venice when I went there - not so much the tourist area, but the small (read tiny) piazze you find when you don't stay on the beaten track.

I have a list of "must have lived there" places buried deep in the back of my head: Venice, Norway (e.g. Bergen, Trondheim, Tromsö) and New York City are on it so far. Good thing I'll be able to get around as a doctor and med student.

Other cities I would like to live in would be:

New York

I always wondered what it is like to live in Alaska. Anchorage or Juneau. Love to fly there for a few years one day maybe.
Also always wanted to live in an Island in the middle of nowhere or a Small New England or European town/village.
Greenland also would be cool. Very cool  Wink
