I'm fine where I am, but if I could live in any house, it would have to be Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water in Pittsburg (completed in 1939) :
Living in the middle of nowhere would scare me. As nice as Patagonia and Alaska is, little too remoteFor me, somewhere warm like Italy. In a villa overlooking a vineyard. The thought of sitting, watching the sun go down with a glass of red sounds idyllic.
Rather ironic how people are posting how they'd like to be miles from anyone on a social website
I was requested to meet with a CEO of one of their divisions late on a Friday evening last year. And requested to be an hour earlier so we could go over protocols. He then invited me over to Seoul last year, I received more cultural awareness training.I know someone who went to live in South Korea for a time working for Samsung. In one early meeting he made the mistake of suggesting a better way of doing something than his boss had come up with. That was it - he was 'ghosted' from there on - never given any decent projects, never spoken to unless absolutely necessary, left off any social events - completely isolated for a year, then went home again. So if you are going to live in one of these areas 'know your place' I guess.
White folk were also such a rarity that people would literally come up to him in the street and say 'can I touch your skin?'
Sadly, there's an element of truth in this.Like some other Asian countries, the Japaneses are unfailingly polite to your face but many are incredibly racist which is par for the course in a society that values conformity and collectivism.
Nope To be honest it was an experience. One night I just wanted a steak. When we got the menu it looked promising there was only steak on it. The bit I didn’t see, wasn’t translated, was that it came with five different courses of fish before that. But I quite like fermented squid.did you try some bosintang/gaejangguk?
New Orleans?! Months and months of 100% humidity. No thanks!Anywhere I didn't have to put up with idiotic neighbours.
I actually like living in the North East so I'd probably go somewhere with better transport links, like somewhere with a Metro station. Jesmond perhaps.
Overseas. Another vote for Amsterdam or even New Orleans.
The Dutch are leading the world in flood defences. I wouldn't bet against them just yet. The US is terrible at infrastructure unless it's national defence so there's no way I'd move to any climate change prone US location.I know. I dare say there won't be much of Amsterdam in a few years as well
