Where in the USA would I live?

A friend just asked me where in the USA I would live if I emigrated.

I said I fancied Texas.

Would that be a sensible choice?



Hi Matthew,

This is probably a bit dreamy on it - but there is something about Virginia that floats my boat. Maybe even West Virgina.

My reasons are the dreamy bit - linked to the Ulster Scots pioneers who piled through the Cumberland Gap in the 1800's - the Shenandoah River and Stonewall Jackson etc.,

Just a thought.

I think it would be a wonderfully appropriate place to move to. Booming economy, generally conservative, the heart of the bible belt, and with more room then the vikings would have known what to do with.

Virginia is a decent place to. But nothing like the Lone Star State.

Yeah if you speak fluent Spanish... :-)~

it's not what it used to be... Remember the Alamo, because I'm sure a Mexican flag will be flying over it soon!

Colin, I am sure Virginia is very nice.

But I think the largeness of Texas is rather appealing. Like PB says.

Celestial Fundie said...

Ryan, or maybe the spainish-speakers will do what most other immigrant group in the world does and assimilate.

Texas would definitely give you some culture shock.

Celestial Fundie said...

Maybe. I am sure it would be different.

Only unless you love the heat. I'd say Virginia also for you.

I am sure Virginia is nice.

I like the fact that Texas is so enormous and diverse. You have the bit in the east that is like the South, the bit in the north-west that has a slightly Mid-western flavour and the the area that is more like the South-West.

But then I have never been there, so I might hate it.

Every Blessing in Christ
