  • Mega Taiga or Badlands.

  • A flat landscape filled with forests and lakes sounds like it would be perfect for setting up your own little homestead. Even if you didn't have the time to go whole hog you could still have a little vegetable patch and room for some chickens, fish in the lake.

    Mountainous regions are stunningly beautiful but they are harsh, tend to have extreme peaks and troughs in the weather, and can be a logistical nightmare for producing your own food.

  • I live in mountainous terrain and I drive a truck and dude sometimes I'm driving and I stop to take my lunch break ontop of a mountain and its amazing how beautiful it is when you can see mountains for miles. I've seen beautiful flat land too but the mountains is just something else because you can see so far, especially if there is a river beside the mountains.

  • I prefer a lot of greenery.

    I lived in Las Vegas for fifteen years, and so now I feel like I've finally been paroled from Purgatory. When I stepped out the door of the George Bush Intercontinental airport it was kinda surreal, because the humid air wrapped it's swampy arms around me like it was a living entity of it's own. The desert air on the other hand feels like death itself.

    Delaware is pretty humid, and I like it, because I feel like it's good for my skin. When I first got here, it was good, because it was autumn, but felt like winter in Houston, or Vegas. We even got some snow before it was officially winter. I enjoy the colder winters, and the occasional snow, but it doesn't last more than a week at a time. When springtime started to come along it was hard on me, because there's a huge field behind my house, and it was nothing but the sound of frogs, and crickets. I started having these emotional flashbacks of when I was living in Kingwood, Texas, and would go a few miles along the walking path by the bayou. Logically I knew I was in a different place, and that one phase of my life was over, but the sounds outside my window told me otherwise. I can't believe that I've been here for two years! Thank God for the rain, and snow, because I miss Houston. The cold, and snow gives me something different, but something different that I can enjoy!

    • It's crazy to me that you love the humidity. I live in a very humid climate but I am not from here so the humidity feels like it's suffocating me. I am from a cold place. The locals see it more as you do. Maybe you have to be born tropical to truly love the environment.

      • I just can't stand that awful death grip of the hot, dry air in the desert. I like humidity when it's cold too. The first few years I was in Las Vegas I used to dream of moving to Scotland. Honestly, now that I have thought about it I think I would really like to go to someplace like Wales. I want to see where my ancestors came from at least once in my life.

        I also LOVE fog, love the air of mystery about fog, and living in Las Vegas for fifteen years was too long to not see fog after having grown up in Houston, and spending a good bit of time in the Deep South.

        • My husband is Welsh. Absolutely go and visit! It's a really unique place and it's very moody and beautiful. Get yourself a quaint holiday cottage and drink local ales at the pub with the Welsh folk and eat proper fish and chips for tea. You'll have a great time.

          • I've seen some pictures of Wales that appear to have come right out of a faerie tale!

            You're in Australia, right? Have you ever been to Spain?

            • I am now, yes, but originally I'm from England and I spent a lot of my childhood school holidays in Wales.

              I have been to Spain. It's nice, but not my cup of tea. The landscapes are beautiful and the food is good, but the people are not my sort. Nothing wrong with them at all, but I think Spain is well suited to extroverted socialites. They are very tactile, loud, and love to party. They get angry quickly and let you know it, but equally they move through it quickly and then it's back to hugs and partying. Fantastic if you're into that, but utterly terrifying and downright annoying if you're not.

  • I like being by the water so I’m going to go with s flat landscape.

    To me mountains are overrated. The only mountain chains I’m crazy for is the Appalachians and Cascades.

  • My perfect place is a valley with scattered fields and mountains in the background. That is the place I'm building a castle in.

  • One where there is abundant vegetation, but not in the middle of a forest... Not a flat endless pasture, but not too mountainous.

    Something like this: https://ibb.co/ctLh17K

    That^ is the perfect summer home/ retirement place.

  • Mountains are lovely to look at, but the older you get the harder they become to tromp up and down them!

  • Being from a very hilly area, I feel like I'm out of my habitat on flat ground. But I'm also used to trees and green hills in the distance

  • I've been in both and quite frankly, it's impossible for me to chose. Both are great for various reasons.
