I've been pretty enamored with New Zealand lately

I've annoyed some people in political threads and, like the children they are, they lash out throughout the site via internet points. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. I have plenty of bananas.

Hah, I'm 88% positive it looks like. If only 88% percent of the country could agree on something.

Some may be pissy because of the rising comparison between the US and NZ in world media. Jacinda Ardern is getting praised quite a bit lately. Just taking a wild guess here.

Not sure, I'd like to bounce around between the mountains and beach.

Honolulu, working from my home office overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Not working East Coast market hours. West Coast ok.

Hope to pull this off in a few years.

I knew a trading desk of about 20 people in NYC that decided that 'they didn't want to spend winter in NYC another year', so relocated to Hawaii for 6 months. Seemed like a sweet deal.

I think about how I want to take my kids boogie boarding (prelude to body boarding), snorkeling, and fishing on the weekends at my fav beaches. I feel like we've done everything already in SF for kids.

I have a friend who trades volatility in Hawaii. Wakes up really early.

Barcelona. Good weather, good food, beautiful women, beaches, mountains, what more could you ask for? Great surrounding landscape with good proximity to other European cities.

I love Barcelona for all the reasons you highlighted. Only wish is if the ocean water could be a few degrees warmer, would be an even more awesome beach scene. I went there in July and water was a bit chilly still. I went in but didn't want to stay in for long.

anywhere in Japan really but the north would be great. Do they have onsen up there too? That would seal the deal for me

Absolutely Hokkaido has onsen. The snow monkeys hang out in hot water pools naturally.

Although I haven't been yet, Kyushu around Fukuoka / Kumamoto might be my spot. Only downside Japan seems to have a more hub-based air flight system so I can't find a direct flight from Fukuoka to Shanghai (there is to HK). I like warmer weather.

Somewhere in Japan, Vancouver, or a less crowded Amsterdam.

An alternate version of NY where I can purchase guns. Miss being able to go to the range and shoot a decent gun that is non-NY version. In real life, probably New Zealand

Anywhere in Italy - weekend trips to the South with one of the best beaches in the world, to the North to ski and just like the Barcelona post above, great food (I'd say better than Spanish cuisine), beautiful women and the unreal cultural heritage.

Surprised no one is mentioning smaller places.....wouldn't mind living in towns like Asheville, NC, Newport, RI, Santa Fe, NM, lots of options in Colorado, etc.

I'm a big fan of small but interesting towns. Small but without the backwoods hick element. There's really only a few places in the country that meet that niche.

Jun 17, 2020 - 5:25pm

Agreed. I would work remotely in Asheville, Portland, ME or Boulder, CO. Though honestly I could do my job from anywhere pre-COVID if I wanted to... I have chosen not to move to one of these locations because I've found there to be too much value in being in NYC from a professional standpoint.

Given that I'm trying to move into consulting from CF, I just couldn't imagine making that happen so far from a major market... hopefully I can when I am more senior in my career.

Jun 19, 2020 - 11:52am

I agree, my company might be opening an office in Fort Collins. If so I'm going to try to get there as soon as possible.

Jun 18, 2020 - 5:37pm

I was supposed to go there in later this year, hopefully I still can but not sure. What's there to do?

Girls are stunning there, and the food is delicious. But the locals can learn some manners man..

I was shocked by how expensive it was. We're talking NY prices sometimes for dinner.

Jun 18, 2020 - 9:05am

NYC. Surprising how many people are saying otherwise - are most of you really in the city due solely to your jobs? Also, is this question assuming you bring your friends/family with you?

Any thoughts on Tahoe? Kind of wish I relocated there for COVID had I known in early March how much WFH I'd have.

Tahoe, I heard has a lot of real estate buyer demand. Small market so good if you own something there already.
