Nope! Won't do it. There was a reason that we moved from the somewhat redundant (El Nino doesn't count) weather in CA back to a land of four seasons. We enjoy watching them change.

Nope. Nope. And nope. I have no interest in visiting most countries let alone living there for months. I actually enjoy winter. Winter is what you make of it. And I live within an hour of the snowiest city in the US so it's not like I don't live with a real winter. I've lived without for a few years and it was just bizarre to me. I did not like not having seasons.

Yes I would love to stay in Hawaii for the coldest months, Dec to Jan in California. It has been too cold and wet. And in the summer I would like to be in Canada.

That's my plan.... I'd hate to just pick up and go to the same place every winter. Even if its just in the US, there must be a lot of nice places to check out.

I had a career where I got paid to travel all over the world. My idea of travel is to spend winters in my Arizona home and use it as a home base to travel around the USA.

Our Canadian friends are always welcome to answer questions like this. In fact, a lot of Canadians spend winters in Arizona.

I'd do it in a heartbeat - France, New Zealand, Brasil. All places I've been to multiple times. I also have many friends in Australia and want to go there. So a big YES!

Oh, I like the seasons...just not quite so extreme...and winter not quite so long!

You betcha. This winter has been spectacularly mild here in southwestern New York State, but last winter was brutal. February averaged 11 degrees, an all time monthly record for cold here. I don't think it got above freezing for like 5 or 6 weeks last year.
