Where is your favorite place to be and why?
I'll go first:
Sometimes I just get homesick for upstate NY in the fall, and my house in the woods....I miss the smell of the wood being cut and I miss the smell of apples, October leaves, and the flutey sound of the bird that used to sing outside my house....and the quiet breeze on a summer day....I lived up on the highest hill in this picture, but this is the best view of the town.
So what's you favorite place?

September on Cape Cod, MA-- in Eastham, specifically-- Walking the trail on Fort Hill overlooking Nauset Marsh. Crickets chirping, bees buzzing, Redwing Blackbirds calling, Goldenrod and Queen Anne's Lace in the meadow swaying in the gentle ocean breeze... *SIGH* ...Heaven on earth. (We go to the Cape for a week almost every year and the count-down is on till we arrive on Labor Day!
Here's a small photo at a site to show a little of what I've described:

This is a very tough one for me, having been in the USN for 21 yrs afforded me the opportunity to visit 37 countries and a couple of territories.
As I wind down, I can't think of a much nicer place than the Republic of Mauritius to hang my hat. It is a melting pot of many cultures, religions and people from all over the Indian Ocean and South Africa. A heavy French and British influence in the past has made it a great place to find great food, great beer and great wine. And we can't forget the very heavy Creole influence, especially in the food of the area.
It is an island in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar, great climate, if you like tropical. Some of the best ocean fishing in the world, miles of beautiful beaches......... just a really nice place to escape the hustle and bustle of what has become western civilization.
Now, if you want to know where not to go.......stay very far away from Somalia!!

and listen when Kewlnurse says "WNY sux, sux, sux. " Because I'm from the same place :chuckle.
Naw ..well it was a good place to grow up in, and I felt I got a great education, but the snow suxs bigtimie!! You shovel to get into yoiur driveway, and then shovel to get out your driveway. You have to start warming up your car thirty mins before you're ready to leave...at LEAST!! You have to clean the car off...pour water on the windows and door knobs...to un freeze them...and don't stay more than 30 mins in a store...because then you have to do the whole thing all over AGAIN!! SUXs! During one of the blizzards...they had to go over to my sister's house and dig her OUT!!! She couldn't open the door because of all the snow that had fell...or the windows for that matter
She now lives in Stone Mountain, GA outside Hotlanta..
