Another great thing about Colorado (and the midwest in general): air quality.

Maybe that sounds stupid, or maybe it sounds obvious. But when I went out there this past summer I brought two types of allergy/sinus medicine with me and expected to use it daily because of all the trees and pollens and such.

That wasn't the case at all. I didn't need the medicine even once, because everything was just so much cleaner. When I got back and was on the drive home from the airport I said, "Yep. Can totally tell I'm home." Since being back I'm very reliant on it, and after my experience with the midwest I just cough it up to ****** air quality around here.

Cork, Ireland (Heritage, and absolutely beautiful country, simpler life style, ect.)
Florence, Italy (Fortunate enough to have spent a semester abroad in Rome, spent my spring break in Florence and that city is simply magical, think about that country every day, and i believe sadly one of the churches i visited on a Art History trip was badly damaged this week 8(...
Duck/Corolla Outer Banks, NC (Family vacations there every summer, hated it growing up as a teenager, but every year we go back it gets better and better, so much better than going to OC NJ/MD even though i grew up spending the summers there, too much trash now that i'm older, still miss the hustle and bustle though!

Yeah, Toronto and such isnt much different from metropolitan US. Kinda weird to see a lot of Philly dwellers say they want to live there.

From Boulder, back to Wayne, after I graduated CU. I moved back home because I didn't know what to do with myself.

Newfoundland is east of Quebec!

But I'm very glad to see it mentioned more than once!


My place I'd like to live would be Cape Cod

We've been wilderness tripping in Algonquin since the early 80's and love the place. The north entrance point is less crowded, and had a diffenent caliber of people. Shame Hydro pulled the power to Brent when the railroad pulled the line thru the park. Jake, who runs the Algonquin outfitters north and the Brent store, is my kind of folk. The village is now mostly summer cottages with Jake running the generator supplying power and the store. Truely a wonder place!

Okay, I figured you had to have been there before. Northern Ontario is not my cup of tea, but it is beautiful.

My 3 places:
1) Nova Scotia (Hammonds Plains or Fall River)
2) Ireland
3) absolutely no idea... there are a ton of places I'd like to go for a month, but nowhere I'd want to live.

The summer camp I went to/worked at for a long time sent several canoeing trips each year into Algonquin. But, by the time I was old enough for the longer trips they had switched to La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve in Quebec. If you haven't been, it's amazing.

I know a girl from Hammonds Plains. She says it's about as close as you can be to the wilderness and still be a "suburb."

That's not a bad description. There are some beautiful neighbourhoods and it's close to Halifax, without having to deal with the city.

The weather is great out Californy way. Plus, I could use some more Flyer fans out here to watch games with. San Francisco is amazing, and you can do pretty much everything within a three hour drive (beach, wine country, snow, forest, etc.). I met a girl in a bar that moved out here a year ago from Philly (I think she lived in Center City? Don't quite remember), said that the Bay Area is the best place she's ever been to in her life. Just sayin...

I would temporarily live in Philly, Ireland, and Italy. I will end up in Northern California eventually. My heart will always be here.

But Colorado just makes me exhale and shake my head in disbelief. I've never seen such a collaboration of beautiful things as I did when I was there last summer. The night sky? Holy effin s. The closest thing this area has to it (to my knowledge) is Apple Pie Hill, and that doesn't even hold a candle to Colorado.
This picture has been the story of my life this winter. My first season out here, and it has been amazing. It snows its ass off, then it clears up and looks like this.

Also the weed here is excellent! (Opus )
