RTW: Interactive Q & A

Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

Today’s Topic: Interactive Q&A. Post a question on your blog, then travel the highway answering others’ questions.

I was going to write this post last night, but a couldn’t for the life of me come up with a good question. The ones that popped into my head felt lame or one-dimensional or already done. So, ladies of YA Highway: three cheers for you, because this question thing is harder than it looks!

That said, here’s what I finally came up with…

If you could live in any city in the world (assuming money is no issue :)) which city would you choose?

For me, the small town of Lahaina on Maui is the obvious choice. I love warmth. I love quaint. I love seafood. I love beaches and suntans and flip flops. And hello, how gorgeous is this sunset? 
Now, since I made the rules and money isn’t an issue, maybe I can have a second home in Charleston, SC as well.
What city would you choose to live in if it were just that easy?

    Well, these aren’t all specific cities, but here’s mine (in no particular order):
    1. Southern California
    2. A small South Pacific island
    3. With a 2nd home in Paris
    (actually, I think I’d prefer a home at all 3! ;))
    And here I sit in good ole’ WA! 😉

    This is a tough question. I almost picked Key West (warm + water + Hemingway), but I’m going to have to go with Chicago. What can I say–I’m a true Midwesterner at heart! (And Chicago has its own gorgeous beaches, at least for 3 months of the year.)

    I like your pink makeover. At first I thought this was such a fun question and now I’m thinking it’s fun but so hard! My initial response: Paris. But then I realized I’d be too far from everyone I know so maybe that’s just my vacation house (you know, in this fantasy world where I can own not only a house but a vacation house). And then I’d choose to live outside Boston, where I’m from, or in Maine. Living in the mid-Atlantic, I desperately miss the beautiful New England fall.

  4. Abby Stevens says:

    I’d miss my family terribly if I moved far away, so I’d probably buy 10 acres about 20 miles up the road, right on the edge of the city/beginning of the rural area.

    If I could get my family to move with me, I’d probably hop from European city to European city for many years.

    Could I alternate between London, New York and Paris? I lived in London for a while but didn’t take full advantage, New York houses some of my favourite artist/designer peoples I would sneakily befriend and I’d love to explore Paris by myself rather than with school/the parents. I know, I’m not asking much!
    – Sophia.

      You can do anything you you want, Sophia. 🙂 I’ve never been to London, New York, or France (I know, I know…) but ever since I read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS I’ve been dying to visit Paris.

    I think it would be lovely to have a house somewhere in the English countryside; I loved every minute of it when I was there before. But I think I’d need to be able to alternate between another place in the city, for a little bit more excitement. 😀

    Otherwise, my absolute dream would be to live either in Sorrento or Capri. They have to be the most gorgeous places on earth.

    Yes, yes, yes, Charleston, SC FTW!
    I lived in CHS for 10 years and I still fantasize about it (well, maybe not in July). It’s right there at the top of my list. beautiful architecture, the BEACH, friendly people, and open-minded for a small southern town. It doesn’t get better!

    Believe it or not, we purposely chose Fayetteville, Arkansas. 🙂 But I’d take a vacation home in the Wind Rivers in Wyoming. Or Monteverde, Costa Rica. Or pretty much anywhere, who am I kidding.
