Election stress (or results) have you plotting your escape? No matter if you’re Team Red or Team Blue, there’s always talk of, “If so and so wins, I’m leaving the country.” Which got me thinking: Where would I move, if I didn’t live in the United States? If you were to move to another country, where would you go and why? I’m so curious… My top picks below!
Vive La France or Italy
Fred Baby and I always say it’s a toss up between France — particularly the South of France (Provence and the French Riviera – a dream!)… OR Italy (we love Rome and Capri/The Amalfi Coast).
Both France and Italy are so beautiful, have the best food in the world and you feel like you’re living in a movie.
But, I also think Switzerland is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I’ve ever been. It might be a little too quiet though.
But if it was good enough for Audrey Hepburn, it’s certainly good enough for me.
Where Would You Move To & Why?
How about you? Is a Caribbean island calling your name? Or perhaps somewhere with a lot to explore like Japan (my niece it dying to go to Tokyo)? New Zealand? Australia? Spain? Singapore? The best hidden town in Europe?
And to be clear, this is in no way bashing the USA, just a fun game, because warts and all, I do feel extremely lucky to live here. But it IS fun to dream of alternative lives, isn’t it?
Yesterday, we decided with our French-Canadian friends, we would all move to a farmhouse in Provence, cook all day, drink and make art. A girl can dream, right?
Let me know below in the comments where you would move to and why!
p.s. What’s your spirit place?
