A Cocktail & Conversation -- Where Would You Live?

Every other Thursday here at The Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail Conversation time. One of the TB&TB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends. 

The Question
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

Lauren Says...

I'd live in Greece. I currently live in the third largest city in Kentucky (which really isn't saying much). I'd live in Greece for so many reasons, the biggest being the history of Greek Mythology and politics that started there. I am a HUGE fan of pretty much every different cultural mythologies, but Greek is my favorite. I would sit where so many infamous and most influential people in the world have sat. I would stand in the middle of the Epidaurus Theater with my jaw dropped. I'd visit the Beaches of Crete and stare in amazement at the colors and pure beauty of the world. I'd walk through the Delphi Runs in splendor of the old world architecture

Okay, this is totally boring, but... I would live right here in Utah. My family and friends, as well as the Mr. 's family and friends all live here. (And yes, we like them!) So staying here is the dream... Especially if we had a house with a nice big back yard and beautiful old trees.  Then I would travel EVERYWHERE.

Julia Says...

Ideal unattainable dream is unlimited money and to live literally every country for a month or so. But when I was in college I did the math against the countries recognized by the UN and if I had started right then it would have taken me decades. And that doesn't even count things like Scotland or Quebec vs. British Colombia or something. 

So that said, I am going to pick somewhere in England. Probably London. I loved going to visit there and I just dont think I would ever get tired of the country and exploring around me. Plus the British accents (and yes I know there are quite a few, I still like them all) are hot! ;)

Bridget Says...

Anywhere there's a beach! Every once in a while I check on this one multi-million dollar, beachfront house for sale near where I grew up. It's gone down about a million and a half since I first started checking, so maybe one day it'll get down far enough for me to afford ;)

What about you guys? Where would you ultimately want to live?


  1. Anywhere there's a beach and an ocean. Failing that by the side of a lake with no people.

  2. I'd love to live in either Ireland, or Norway, Sweden or Denmark.Those last three countries are relatively similar to living in the Netherlands, but with much more space to live, and with that less oppressive rules (since when you live very close together in a country, more regulations seem to be nessecary). Ireland because of it's wonderful story-culture, and because Dublin is almost my husband's second home, and he loves it there :-)

    Although I'm an Anglophile, I'd veto England though. People there are polite, but in my experience hardly ever friendly. I'm way to used to blunt honesty to thrive there I guess, apart from holidays ;-)

  3. Oo, I've been asked this before and the answer is totally Wellington, New Zealand. It's my fav city in the world. It's a little far for communication and visits, which is why of course I'm also learning how to teleport in my free time.

    Greece is nice too though, and Delphi was fun cuz there are little tunnels in the ruins you can explore.

  4. London. I was born there, but moved because my dad was in the Navy. I've lived in lots of places and got a chance to live in London again when I was a teenager. It was one of the happiest times in my life, and if I could choose anywhere, anywhere, to make a new life London would be it.

  5. I'm from Houston, Texas. I love Texas...that will always have my heart. But, I did it. I moved somewhere halfway around the world and have lived in Sydney, Australia for 6+ years.

  6. I absolutely love England. I did a study abroad in London and have been aching to go back there ever since :)
