Where do you want to live?

Practically speaking, where do you want to live? (Realistically speaking, where you can have a job, speak the language, etc.)

If you had no restrictions, where would you want to live? (That is, no financial restrictions, you can speak any language, etc.)

Win by luck, lose by skill.

Probably my hometown. Got a major city (by Norwegian standards) half an hour away with ferry to Denmark and it's not too far from Sweden either. Only downside is that the nearby airport has somewhat limited when it comes to decent foreign routes. It's also one of the few locations I can stand the dialect of.

I have no idea what to put here... So I guess I'll just put this here.

I'd like to stay up in the northern part of the US, near Cedar Point. That way I can justify buying a Season Pass and go there with friends all the time. I love that place.

With no restrictions... I'd have to say Germany. That place sounds fun.

Given restrictions - such as job security, the cost of living, and so on - I'm actually incredibly happy living in Colorado. Sometimes my husband and I will look around at other states, but nothing seems to appeal to me. We've been told that we'd enjoy Alberta because the culture is very similar to what it is here (I haven't been there in years so I cannot verify it). Otherwise overall other than a few discrepancies Colorado's political/social/economical situation is very appealing, as is its culture. Someplace I could not live, as much as I'd love to work for companies out there, is California. The traffic around LA drives me batty and it makes me sick. As much fun as it is to walk around in the middle of the night without freezing to death I don't think I'd be very happy. If we had to move to a much more urban environment I'd prefer to live in Chicago over Denver, because Chicago developed like a proper large city with decent transportation and services open late/24 hours. Since that isn't true of Denver (the highway goes around the city, unlike most places where it goes through), it would make it expensive and probably just more annoying to live there.

If language and jobs weren't an issue, I think I'd greatly enjoy being a global citizen. I'd love to hop from country to country every so many years if I thought I could find stability where I went and I could either learn the language quickly or if I already knew it. Two countries in particular I'd be interested in are Japan and Germany.

Oh don't worry, it is.
Realistically speaking I'd probably take full logistical support here, but anywhere else probably Canada. The language barrier thing isn't an issue as a lot of people speak English anyways.
Unrealistically speaking I'd pick Japan. If the UK wasn't going downhill I'd pick there too.

The UK has always sounded like an interesting place to visit on vacation, but I don't think I could live there. I think I'd become very annoyed. Maybe in more rural areas it'd be okay.

Somewhere in the UK would probably be my second choice. I very much enjoyed the time I spent at uni there. Downside is that there's fairly overcrowded many places and the economy is a bit meh.

I'd go back to live in my hometown most likely.

I can't really do that at the moment because most good jobs are in London and I'm not prepared to commute 70 miles. I realise 70 miles is not far for people who've been brought up in the US, but in the UK it's a pain to commute.

The furthest commute I've done is 20 miles each was hell, especially in terrible weather. I could not imagine living anywhere with a worse commute than that. I actually would've taken the train, except public transportation sucks so it would've been more expensive to do that.

not really worth it to me for a one off contest, I feel like the point of an Impossible map is to encourage team collaboration anyway
