California, US - feels like home to me. I lived a little while in the North, but mostly in Southern California, South to Los Angeles, in San Diego and Orange Counties.
In San Diego County I lived in La Jolla, South Park (close to Balboa Park and downtown), North Park (to the South of University street) and in Oceanside, North County.
I moved to California to exercise outside on most days, to swim in the ocean, and to hopefully find more people who value ethical lifestyles. This is the only place I have ever chosen to live not out of circumstances, chance, or need. My biggest issues here are the price of water, real estate, and high taxes. What I love the most is the friendliness of people, like almost anywhere along the Pacific Coast, the vast variety of personalities one can meet, and the clarity of sunlight.
