Friday Five 1. How many

Friday Five

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life? At best count, an even 20.

2. Which was your favorite and why? A tie between where I am now (convenient location; it's a little small but a great home base for travel; fairly quiet; lots of sun) and the apartment on Rue Royale (great balconies; beautiful wooden floors; high ceilings; lots of space; sanctuary right in the thick of the French Quarter)

3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why? After doing it too many times, I pretty much hate it. I'd rather have a root canal. Really. It takes less time and you get over it much faster.

4. What's more important, location or price? Location, location, location.

5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)? Outdoor space, levels, high ceilings, fireplace(s), beach access, lots of light, quiet, in or near a city, big kitchen, cozy zen room, lots of "flow," rooms for guests. Acutally I have several dream houses/flats in mind, depending on the season and geographic location. I want a place in NY, a place by the beach, a place in the country and a place in another country. I guess the real dream would be to have several fantastic places, each with a secret transporter room, tucked inside a giant wardrobe or hidden behind a phony bookself.
