transfer to some other place to work...and you were given the choice, where and why?

Back to New England. Even though the snow would get to me after living down South, I'd like to be closer to my family, as well as closer to civilization.

I was offered to relocate to Canada to work, but after considering the weather I had to pass.

Not really sure, but for the right amount of money I think almost anywhere would work.

I'd have to think long and hard about that.  I've lived in the south all my life except for 4 yrs in California when I was in high school and that state has gotten so liberal don't think I'd want to live there again: but that's just me.  lol

I would for the right opportunity and as long as it was a place I found visually attractive.  I have been spoiled by living on the West Coast in some of the most beautiful areas I've ever seen. It does make a difference to me in my daily life if I am surrounded by beauty, water, mountains, etc.  Places that are too flat, hot, crowded, etc.  don't have much attraction for me.  Good topic!

As long as I remained near a real beach and good weather I would. I couldn't move anywhere that actually had a harsh winter. I can barely survive Florida winters

There are very few places I would be willing to move. Southern California or Hawaii are probably the only places I would agree to.

Ireland is a good choice, some very pleasant and friendly people there.  I would be happy to move back to Europe again, actually anywhere in Europe.  I would actually prefer England, France or Italy, although German is the only language I speak except for English.

i would probably go anywhere, as long as it wasn't
rural. but the place i work for will only open stores in
areas that meet certain population criteria, like many
other retail stores, so i wouldn't have to worry about
that anyway...

if they were paying for it, they could send me wherever  :P
[ we all have a place in history. mine is in the clouds. ]

Only if the job was very well paying and advanced my career would I consider uprooting my children to move.
