Where to Reside

This is a spot for me to keep up with places where I would like to or where I would consider residing. These are likely to change over time.

Where I would like to reside:

1. Key West, FL
2. Austin, TX
3. New Orleans, LA
4. Melbourne, VIC AUS
5. St. Petersburg, FL
6. Charleston, SC
7. Longview, TX

Where I would consider residing:

1. Cairns, QLD AUS
2. Perth, WA AUS
3. Barcelona, Spain
4. San Jose, Costa Rica
5. Hanalei, Kauai, HI
6. Savannah, GA
7. Fort Myers, FL
8. Zihuataneo, Mexico
9. Indianapolis, IN
10. New Zealand

There are many places in California where I’m sure I’d like to reside, however presently the cost of living is so high that I would need an income that significantly makes up for that difference. Everyone I know who has moved to California has stated that the salary “differential” they were granted based upon traditional COLA calculators was not sufficient. I also don’t like the fact that the Pacific Ocean is so cold – I want to be able to get into the water.

There are also many places in Europe and the Caribbean where I’m sure I would consider living – and other places of the world as well; however they are simply not as of yet on my radar screen. Although I have an adventurous spirit, I’m not certain how well I might adjust to significant cultural differences, such as by moving to one place I might consider, Montevideo, Uruguay.
