My ideal winter writing residence would be a house in Key West.  My summer writing home would be in Maine on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

Somewhere in the middle - Kentucky maybe. I want a long growing season, and not much snow. I want to stay there.

Winter: Australian Gold Coast, staying for free at our Wizzley co-founder's house---yes, I'm talking about you, Ron Passfield!---and eating all his shrimp off the barbie.

Summer: Boulder, CO, staying at my friend Doug's house and eating all his burgers off the smoker.

Then naps.

Then writing.

On top of the Black Mountains in Wales.  Ok, I don't know how that would work, because it's very exposed with no housing.  Nor would I want housing to spoil that view.


Camper van?


Either that or someone in Snowdonia.  Perhaps on Penrhyn Llyn

I've been meaning to ask this same question for long time. I've lived all but the last six years in CA. I love Pasadena. After living now in Kentucky for six years, I now like the changing seasons. Ragtime, everything grows in Kentucky. They have the most beautiful trees, plants and birds here.

I hate fog which you get a lot of on the CA coast. I just don't know where I would want to live.

'Travelling the World and the Seven Seas' - everybody is looking for something!

All seasons on a cruise liner travelling the oceans and visiting new ports on a regular basis. There is (or was) one that, for a one-off payment, you could call your home (and office). A large 'presidential-style' suite could be purchased for $2m+. Seems cheap to me to see the world, with constantly changing scenery (except the water I suppose). All facilities, and meals, there available within easy reach - including satellite internet within the cabin.

Just need to earn a few more dollars to make this a reality (I wish!)!

Where's that lottery ticket - better check to see if reality can be generated from a dream and a little lady luck.

I love writing on a train in the caboose with the tables, they have huge windows where you can see some lovely scenery that's always changing thus staring out helps you become more creative and think... 

what was the question again? :) haha

Winter in Florida living on the Intracoastal Waterway - boating, fishing and exploring little islands every day and eating fresh fish every evening.

Summer (and Fall) in New England.

Close to your ideal life BobSimpson Cool  Key West is too crowded for me.

Jerrico, I'm with you. I used to take the commuter train from Sacramento to Emmeryville in CA. I always had my laptop and I'd write. I could sit on that train going back and forth and writing all day. As a matter of fact, my concentration was much better on the train.

I never write when I'm on the rails because I always lose my train of thought

I lived in Sacramento most of my life (and Roseville, placerville, eldorado hills but mainly sacramento near sac city college)! I took a train to Oregon 9 times before moving here permanently and I wrote on most of the trips (no internet but you can transfer them later) it's a nice balance for writing :)

Why don't you write an article about it? Sounds interesting! and if they have an affi program you could earn some nice commissions;-) SY

I've got a lot of projects on the go at the moment, so don't want to get sidetracked any more than I am at the moment. 

If your idea of writing an article about it enthuses someone else to write an article, that is OK by me. Here is an article from 2011 about it: http://www.marineinsight.com/sports-luxury/cruise-industry/buy-a-house-at-sea-the-world-ship%E2%80%99s-residence-at-sea/

It's called 'The World' - so the tag line could be (after my previous post) 'Travel (with) The World and the Seven Seas'. Happy writing Cool

Like Humagaia I am too busy with other projects, but I found the ship's web site and their press room http://aboardtheworld.com/press_room Would make for a fascinating topic for somebody, especially if one could dig out some info by people that worked on the ship, like how is the crew housed and paid? Seems to me a fascinating micro cosmos ...

Chef, or any other member of staff - can this idea (and the posts in this forum thread) be transferred or copied over to a new forum thread in the 'ideas for Wizzles' section. Someone could then grab it, and let others know that it has been grabbed.

Sorry, we can't transfer threads/posts, but you can write a new blurb in the other forum and link back to here.

I'm still sold on Hawaii, me, a bike, a beach house and I'm set for the long haul.  Who wouldn't want to come visit me in Hawaii????

For the summer, on the beach in Maine that is about 45 min. from my house.

In the winter, curled up on the couch in my house.

I'm pretty much a homebody if you can't tell. lol
