In today’s NaBloPoMo prompts the question is. Where would you retire if money wasn’t an issue? Retirement is the least thing I think about. I have never even had a real job. Maybe I should get one first. In a way this is an impossible subject in my case. But anyway.
I’ve lived in a city all my life. But I realised there’s just too much noise in a city. Too many cars and too many people around. I like some peace and quiet. It’s a reminder when I hear my neighbours and even my father’s. Slamming the doors, playing music out loud, talking too loud, walking heavily on their heels. Even worse when the only time they go out, is on their balcony to pollute the air with their smoking. Yuck. When you go out on a walk, there they are, the smoking chimneys. No offence for those who has that bad habit. It’s just annoys me so much.
At least in the country there’s fresh air. As a city girl, the country has to be close to the city and there has to be a bus stop near by. Since I don’t have a car of my own. Except if I’m rich enough, I would get my own driver. I wouldn’t have any farm animals or any farming things. That’s the neighbours thing. If any Lee Pace fans are reading this, you know what I’m talking about 😉
I would live in a cottage. No big house. Too much to clean. Maybe like Bilbo Bagging. A hobbit hole. That would be nice. There would be flowers and a cage for my 1-2 bunnies. The only thing I would grow are potatoes or maybe carrots but that’s as far as it goes to farming. Rest of the food I get from the city.
There would be a forest near by where I take walks with my camera to take photographs. Nature will always be important to me. I don’t where this country will be. Hopefully in Finland. But it could be anywhere in the world. Austria or Switzerland would be cool too. As long as it’s not too far from a city and there’s snow in the winter.
That’s where I would like to retire. And maybe eat a lot of peaches. Store bought that is.
