    Im in NV, a great place to visit but i can't recommend living here unless you really like deserts and a ton of open spaces. We have the unique combo of legal weed, legal gambling, legal prostitution and 24/7/365 sales and legal consumption of alcohol, last call in all most any form does not exist in this state.....not to mention no state income tax and very reasonable (relatively) gun laws. We have camel races, piston airplane races and ballon races, the national bowling stadium, tesla gigafactory 1, burning man, Vegas and Tahoe of course, and tons of nuclear subsidence craters around the Nevada Test Site. If the expanse and desert ever get to be too much i just hop back over into california or take the quick drive to oregon or washington for a nice palette cleanse.

    I come from a small village of China, where has picturesque scenery, fresh air, and people are very friendly. When I grow up, because of my work, I came to the big city. You can see the high buildings anywhere.People are busy respectively, but it has never lacked laughter around. Both the village or city, I love the beautiful mountains, the clear water, and the enthusiastic people. I love China, also I'm very interested in foreign cultures. In a word, wherever I live in, I'll be very happy, because I love enjoying my life!:love:

    I live in a small liberal college town in central NYS. I like many things about it, but I also have things I would love to see changed.

    I love the nature. I love my job. I love my lady. I love my family. All of these things are here, but I still plan on moving to Cali in a few years. Actually, visiting Cali in just three weeks. Woohoo

    Small island chain, off of Florida called the Florida Keys. We live 50 miles from Key West, at the base of The 7 Mile Bridge.
    We have a hurricane coming, Irma. Our island is ( maybe ) a mile wide, and 6 or 7 miles long. I like where I live, and have lived here most of my life.
    When I was younger, I traveled some. I camped thru many states as a young woman. As an only child, I returned to the Keys where my Mom, Gmom, GGmom , etc.. lived,
    Please send us positive energy, we are leaving our island home early this morning, 4 a.m. or so. These hurricanes suck, but hell, it's just stuff.:)

    I'm in North Texas so no hurricane here. My only complaint is no legal flowers.

    Your original post got me to snooping around google maps. I had narrowed it down to south of Albuquerque. Fun wondering what folks do on a mountain in those parts. Drove south down the western side of NM after driving north up the eastern side of AZ and through the four corners area way back in the day when I was living in Tucosn. Beautiful and mystical area from what I recall.

    I appreciate all the posts. I'm broadening my palette.

    I live in a auto junkyard underneath an old rusty 1957 Chevy, filled with spiders, in a hole that I hollowed out with a large rock. My hole's not so bad except for the excessive water in the spring, the snakes in the summer, and the freezing in the winter. I get my electricity to vape from a hodge-podge of 300 yards of extension cords snaking into an outlet in the back of an 'old folks' home. The old jerks unplug it all the time.

    Gotta think about making a move, I hate winter. :nod:

    After visiting northern California I'm no longer satisfied with upstate New York. I really loved the Sacramento area. Just hours from coast or mountains, nice City, very flat which is good for me since I walk everywhere and have bad knees so hills suck lol, and I want more sunshine and legal cannabis in my life. I hate winter, too. I love fall....

    The Netherlands
    I'm from Delfzijl, The Netherlands. Its a small harbor town at the north-east corner. I guess its nice here, its pretty quiet and the grocery store is a 10 second walk from my home. I dont have to worry about people whenever I smoke/vape outside. It isnt a big deal anyway here in the Netherlands but you always have some people who have to complain.

    I have Groningen(one of the bigger cities) near my place, its also where I go to college. Its around a 30-40 minute drive but from monday to friday I can use the public transport for free everywhere in the country because I am a student. So whenever I get bored Ill just go to the city.

    I really hate the weather here. Its mostly just wind with alot of rain. Whenever it gets hot the moisture levels are so high that it makes it uncomfortable. Not to mention we only have a few hot days in a year.

    On the otherside, there is enough things to do here. If you put the weather aside the Netherlands is a nice place to live. If anyone wants to live here, try to get a place outside the bigger cities. Its way more quiet and the people are usually more nice. The country is small so you can always get to one pretty quick if you need to.

    We have coffeeshops(yay), but weed still isn't legal. Its 'gedoogd' which basically means its still illegal but decriminalized. If you are caught with weed, they might take it from you but if you're over 18 and only have less than 5 grams, they cant arrest/fine you. Coffeeshops are allowed to sell, but weed isnt allowed to be grown. This system is outdated and weird, as it promotes illegal street dealers to sell to coffeeshops. There have been alot of debates about this lately, currently they're expirimenting with state-owned cannabis farms to replace the street dealers. If that works out correctly, a new law will be accepted which says coffeeshops may only buy from these farms. The price per gram will lower and the weed will be more clean. People are worried about the strength getting lower though.

    Overall the Netherlands is a nice, modern place to live. I dont have much complaints, the weather just sucks. My only big worry are the terrorist attacks in Europe. So far there hasn't been an attack in the Netherlands yet but you can still feel the tension here, people are easily scared. Its all happening really close here. Several people have been arrested for planning such attacks.

    OP, if you do plan on coming to Europe, I would gladly welcome you to the Netherlands. Quality of life here is pretty good, but its a small country. I could see why people are choosing France, England or Germany over the Netherlands, but hey atleast we have the best weed laws in Europe so far :p

    Absolutely. Netherlands will be my next trip to Europe. Not that I get there with any frequency. But I do indeed want to get to where you live. Learned a little about its languages last year while discussing European languages in a survey course. Frisian was a topic of discussion. (Your English is good. Other than Dutch and English, what languages do you speak?) And Amsterdam of course.

    And The Hague (why the 'The'?).
