In short-- its frustrating to go a lot of places, but never see anything.
So ironically, as tired as I am of airports (I literally just had to look at the information kiosk to remember that I'm in Detroit), all the travel gets my wander lust up. I've lived in the same state my whole life, and while I highly doubt I will relocate any time soon, I do like to dream and virtually shop for a new place to live.
My weird, virtual city hopping led me to take a quiz online the other night about what city is most suited to me... the very humorous answer-- Sioux Falls, South Dakota. And actually, on looking into it, the city has a lot of things I love, but 1/8 of the population of Baltimore-- and even Baltimore feels a little small to me.
So I am open to suggestions for my virtual relocation-- tell me about where you live, and maybe I can imaginarily move there soon! Here's what I am looking for:
- Size! I need to be in close proximity (an hour or less) to a city of at least half a million.
- Diversity! I like being in an area where lots of cultures and types of people interact. I couldn't thrive in an environment where everyone is the same religion, for example.
- History! I LOVE Baltimore because so much has happened there. I like historic buildings, and fun cultural anecdotes
- Food! Yes, sir. I need to be somewhere with really good regional cuisine, but also LOTS of options for other types of food.
