For me, it would be Snowdonia, North Wales. I think it's the most beautiful place in the world and if God had a garden, that would be it. I love the Welsh language too, and am trying to learn it, but its a bit 8-) at the moment!

Since I was a little girl I've been having dreams about Scotland, but my parents never took me there. When I got old enough to earn my own money and could go, I didn't do it because I was afraid of ruining my inner pictures of a paradise. I still have that feeling. I still haven't been there.

In the meantime I have explored the spirit of my own land. I have tried to see it through other eyes than before. To actually notice the small things that surround me and that I always have taken for granted. The beauty in the small, simple and peaceful life in the forest. The mighty wind in the mountains, the eagle's realm. I have so much to be happy for in my own neigbourhood, and it is important to discover it, because this is the place that I live, and this is where my friends and family are, and this is where I have my work. I have never felt any urge to travel around the world. It is not that I don't think other places are any better or more interesting or anything. It is just that I've rather been pulled deeper into the woods and higher up in the mountains.

I already do. I'm originally from SE England but moved to Catalonia, Spain.

I never thought I'd leave Britain, and didn't have a particular desire to move to Spain. But love and a sense of destiny moved me :grin: And here I am.
If you change SE England for NW England and Catalonia for the Basque country, thats my story too :grin:
