If you were going to live somewhere else...

If you were going to live somewhere else on your boat besides the U.S. where would you go?

My wife asked me that question...



I said I want to go where the weather is warm, the food is good and cheap, the surf is perfect, and there are topless brown girls on the beach.
She agreed.
I can't tell you exactly where that is yet, We need to go look for it with our own eyes, but I'll let you know.
It's south of here, I know that much.

We will eventually be on the east coast of Scotland. Not ideal, but necessary. A bit cold and the sailing isn't as good as the west coast, but its not too far from France. Some beautiful sailing on the French coast...

If I could be anywhere, I'd have a hard time saying no to Greece.

Our goal is to return to the Philippines. This is where my wife is from, and I love it there. 7107 islands, and most uninhabited just waiting to be cruised. The Phils are extremely diverse from weather such as S.F.'s summer cold to extremely hot, and humid. There's 6 months of cruising time. To avoid typhoon season I prefer to live up the mountain away from heat & humidity. The living is inexpensive, and just about everybody is brown. ....lololol.....i2f

Bahamas! Great water, great diving, great fishing, protected waters, good access to stateside quality services and food, nice people. Only problem is hurricane season...not many places to hide!
Alternatively...Turkey has a lot of appeal as well with great water, good weather and prices, and access to history the Greek isles and the whole Med.
But there are lots of places I haven't seen yet too!! Some of my favorites are in higher latitudes but I couldn't do that year round on a boat.

I guess this is not a subject that very many people think about, but it's interesting that two people have mentioned Greece or the Greek Isles...we have thought about that also since my wife is Greek.

I've always wanted to try out the South Pacific, but I don't think that's going to happen...but maybe the Greek Isles would.

It would be interesting to hear from people that have done the Greek Isles.

Well, I`ve done some of them at least.

The people are very nice, the scenery is breathtaking. Prices are cheap, but getting more expensive every year. In summer it tends to get very busy with charters. There are not many "full service marinas" on the islands, but there are several in the vicinity of Athens, with airtravel connections to the rest of the planet.
All in all a pretty good place to spend your time afloat.

For the moment I`m going to keep my boat in Holland however, as they keep promising us this global warming thing.....

I want to hang out on Greece for a couple of reasons. One being that Greek food is just about my favorite- simple, healthy and oh so delicious. I could eat it every day and be happy.

Secondly, we have good family friends who are Greek and return to Greece every year to visit family. If their large family is any indication of typical Greeks, I could easily get along with them for many years and never be bored.

The third reason is the sheer volume of historical sites to explore.
And finally, it would be a great place to improve my bouzouki playing skills!
