If you could live in another country, which one would you choose?
The US. Along with England, it's my favorite country. Like England, it's connected - not isolated -easy to travel within and to other countries from.
But even moreso than England it's very diverse and variable. You can drive from Maine to Florida and pass through regions where the way of life and population of people are so different you feel as if you've passed through three different countries. I like that- and I've never been to another country that offers that.
What conditions would you need fulfilled in order to live content life?
I would need to be surrounded by natural beauty or somewhere where it was easily accessible. I can't be landlocked. I like the east coast because I understand and appreciate the rhythm of the lifestyle and the directness of the people there.
If I ever move back to the US, I'd live either in the Florida keys, North Carolina or upstate New York. Any of those places would afford me access to decent sized cities with the sort of culture I enjoy - and the ocean not too far away for me to enjoy it more than once a year.
Would foreign languages be an obstacle or an advantage?
No, but if I lived near Miami - I might be inspired to learn Spanish.
What aspects of life would be a draw or a setback in figuring in your choice?
I would have to leave England which I like just as much in different ways for different reasons.
