Temperature isn't everything. It's wet and windy up there. The winter season is long and dark (compared to Southern Norway).

I'm restricted to the southern coastal half of Australia; Sydney to the east, Perth to the west. Any more southernmost it's too cool. Go any north it's too hot.

Economically, there's nothing wrong with other Australian cities. They all have good quality of life, but the climate can be intrusive.

Yes I have two regions greatly prefer. Pacific Northwest and New England, the best parts in the country.

No, I'd just like to move outside southern England. West Midlands, East Midlands, the north will suit me fine.

Our location on a coastal road in west Scotland is ideal for many reasons. We've got a sea loch in front, a forest in back, and mountains. It's peaceful. We have a small town 10 miles away where we can shop, go to a small gym, etc. But when we want to go to a city - Glasgow - we can get there via ferry and bus, train, or car in less than 1 1/2 hours. We go for shopping, museums, concerts, and for the international airport. Or we can catch a train to Edinburgh, London and anywhere else.

The only thing missing is our beaches are rocky and I wouldn't mind living on a white, sandy beach like those around the islands.

There are other places in Scotland I could live - not cities or towns. But I could never give up our big garden.

I live in Brittany, a small mostly-rural province in the far west of France. Brittany is a small peninsula whose wild and rocky coast sticks out into the Bay of Biscay.


Pennherez Keroulaz - YouTube

The song they play in this video, Penherez keroulas, is a traditional Breton ballad.

Bretons are French Celts, BTW. We have our own language (similar to Welsh), and our own musical, social and cultural traditions which are still very much alive today.

I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Kenavo ar wech all.
