Fun Your Dream Country

Paris as a permanent home. Summer house in Tuscany or Lake Como. ;)

On the same page. Italy as a country has an abundance of great cities, towns, and diverse nature from north to south. Not to mention food and wine, fashion, architecture, and art... Tuscany and Como are great choices. For non-italians, Como would be preferable I think. It's picturesque, just a 35 mins car or train ride from Milan, 10 mins from the Swiss border, 25 mins from Lugano, 90 mins from natural thermal waters, 3 hours from Lake Lucerne, 4 hours from Nice France, and spitting distance from other major Italian cities in the north.

Paris hands down is the best city in the world.

London is great as a base. Everything works better and more efficiently (excluding NHS) than Paris, especially business.

Ideologues thrive on misconceptions. Your mind can play tricks on you under the harsh conditions of western Siberia.

Maybe you felt targetted because my post came right after yours, but there are many in this thread my post applies to. If I was talking about you specifically, I would have quoted you.

I just find it funny that the staunchest leftists, nowadays, are people who seem to have ample access to, and enjoy, the fruits of capitalism. For example, the strongest proponents of leftism in the U.S. are from affluent east coast or west coast cities.

Anyway, my comment wasn't meant to start a debate or to shame anyone. It was just a teasing observation. Let's not turn a light-hearted thread into an argument.

To be honest, I don't enjoy travelling in the way that it's done by most people, so it doesn't feel like a loss to me. I have my own way of doing things.

communist knows how to enjoy life ;) ..instead of wasting time in praying for non existant god ;)

If you're going to add to your post after it was responded to, you should at least let the person know :)

Nothing wrong with enjoying life. God gave us life and the world to enjoy. The least we can do is be grateful and enjoy responsibly :)

But all of this is completely besides my initial point.

I used to argue from the leftist perspective for years. I know what the concepts / ideas are very well. I just no longer agree with them.

Still figuring it out...sometimes I feel one way, and other times another way. That tends to happen when you're an expat / immigrant...you get confused.

Wonder what the standard of living would be like for the ordinary folk in Canada without the elite left.

Forget the inherent polarisation of politics. Both sides have brilliant and lousy ideas. The key is taking only the good from both.

On that dream country, there’s one country in the western hemisphere that has remained relevant on every level for the past 2,000 years. You can see the fruits of that legacy today, and it still resonates in this hollow world we live in now.

This is how I think as well. That's why I'm politically independent. If you're not a staunch leftist, then that's a reason more not to feel targetted by my comment :)

Are you talking about Italy?

Let's just say my sentiments are with the left.

Italy it is. Its story is etched in its architecture. There's ancient, medieval, renaissance, industrial cities and mixes of all.

I don't know about others here, but culturally speaking, Europe is much closer to us than the Americas. Having lived on both sides of the Atlantic, I never felt at home in the U.S. or Canada. Something was missing. It’s just the culture and mentality of people.

Any place that is far from modern civilisation (city life) with fields, mountains with good and clean soil and water, very cheap while the weather is Mediterranean like.. just imaging how peaceful that place would be to live at till you die in old age.. actually the best place for worship..

And where other than the vast coastal Levant to live this dream? only if.. :woot:
