Living in Switzerland, one of the best places to live in the world PERIOD.

A very nice city, and maybe, I´ll visit Japan a few times :3

I played rugby with a Yorkshire boy when I was in University (not long ago. . .) He said it was a nice place, but understanding what else he was saying was a bit of a challenge. Moving on, one of my friends is from Rotherham. . . Is that near you?

Personally, I'm from DC, lived in New Jersey for four and a half years for school and for the entrepreneurial venture that I engaged in right after school, and then moved to East-Coast-Central Florida not long ago for the same entreprenurial venture. (Indialantic, actually 45 mins south of the Cape on A1A)

Funny, a joke from Sam Kinison came to mind about living in crappy places;

"I'm like anyone else on this planet -- I'm very moved by world hunger. I see the same commercials, with those little kids, starving, and very depressed. I watch those kids and I go, 'Fuck, I know the FILM crew could give this kid a sandwich!' There's a director five feet away going, 'DON'T FEED HIM YET! GET THAT SANDWICH OUTTA HERE! IT DOESN'T WORK UNLESS HE LOOKS HUNGRY!!!' But I'm not trying to make fun of world hunger. Matter of fact, I think I have the answer. You want to stop world hunger? Stop sending these people food. Don't send these people another bite, folks. You want to send them something, you want to help? Send them U-Hauls. Send them U-Hauls, some luggage, send them a guy out there who says, 'Hey, we been driving out here every day with your food, for, like, the last thirty or forty years, and we were driving out here today across the desert, and it occurred to us that there wouldn't BE world hunger, if you people would LIVE WHERE THE FOOD IS! YOU LIVE IN A DESERT! YOU LIVE IN A FUCKING DESERT! NOTHING GROWS OUT HERE! NOTHING'S GONNA GROW OUT HERE! YOU SEE THIS? HUH? THIS IS SAND. KNOW WHAT IT'S GONNA BE A HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW? IT'S GONNA BE SAND! YOU LIVE IN A FUCKING DESERT! GET YOUR STUFF, GET YOUR SHIT, WE'LL MAKE ONE TRIP, WE'LL TAKE YOU TO WHERE THE FOOD IS! WE HAVE DESERTS IN AMERICA -- WE JUST DON'T LIVE IN THEM, ASSHOLES!"

Any Northeasterner will consider it a long drive as well, but, as I've found, I've had to get accustomed to longer trips since moving to Florida. I'm think about moving to the SF Bay area in a few years, which also appears to require some driving.
