Lately, been thinking about travelling again, not been far away from home for quite sometime (Scotland).

So far in life, I have been fortunate to have visited the following places...

USA - Florida/Miami
Spain - Fuengirola (very rude locals)/Benidorm/Tenerife
Portugal - Algarve (worst place of all so far - Rude folks)
Caribbean - Puerto Plata
France - Paris/Normandy
Northern Ireland - Belfast
Greece - Corfu
Egypt
Tunisia - Tip - Do not visit a casino after dark.

But for me, by far, the best of them all has to be Turkey with having been there four times so far. Just feels like a second home to me for some reason, this video encapsulates as close I can convey as to the why...



Where is your second home and please do, share the why?

Cheers


PS: been thinking of journeying to Sri Lanka/Japan/China next, but again, find myself wanting to go back to Turkey

My second home as per what?
I spent many years in the mountains, and have a place in the community if need arises, due to catastrophe.
I do not have ties to obvious vacation spots.

Honestly, I'm not sure what you are asking? As this is an unusual web site. Are you asking where you would go to in a SHTF scenario? Or are you bragging about the mediocre Travel log you chose to share?

Said with all respect.

I've never been out if the Country. My second home is at my best friend Diane's. I stay over some weekends and we are near the ocean with quaint little shops and art galleries, awesome seafood, out in nature with great company. That's good enough for me.

A lovely drama free and simplistic life...

Way to go my dear👍👍👍

Well, as most people know, I am a Brit in France for nearly 30 years now and consider this country as my first home.

I have travelled the world... met many interesting people and cultures... even caught their diseases...

However my second home where I feel relaxed... confortable... In an ideal world... At one with nature... Apart from when I toddle outside to have a pee (The joys of living in the countryside and being a man with a willy...)

Is...

My downstairs toilet.😉

Although I must admit that I would prefer a downstairs toilet near the sea or ocean so that I can fill said sea or ocean with my Lagomorph droppings and watch the surprised looks on unsuspecting swimmers when they realise they have just swallowed a rabbit currant by inadvertance...

Buwhahahaaaaa....

Iceland.

Having always lived in a city (Boston/Chicago/NYC), I love the solitude one can find there.

Most likely Florence, Colorado.

While I've never lived outside of the United States, I was born into a military family and had many homes growing up. Massachusetts, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Florida and California.

I don't really remember Massachusetts or Tennessee but I do very vividly remember living in New Hampshire, Florida and California.

In adulthood I've stayed a bit more anchored - living only in California, Georgia and Texas in the past several decades.

I'd consider all of the above second homes - places I'd happily return to if life led me there.

However the several years I spent in Nashua, New Hampshire really stand out to me. I lived there during my childhood, from 3 years of age until I was 11 and maybe it's that I was innocent. Maybe it's that the world was a simpler place in the early 70's. Maybe it's a bit of both. I just know that it seemed like that place had something about it that I never quite experienced again anywhere else.

Yeah. Nashua. I think in my heart that would be my second home.

I live in the UK,but my second home is:
Rural Nepal,specifically the Dhorpatan area and Dhalaugiri foothills-I am a fan of the old ways,and that area is like being timewarped back to the neolithic era.
No electricity,no roads,ancient tiny mountain villages with views of the Himalayas that literally made me cry.
Amazing wildlife-lepoards,wolves,bears,snakes,red pandas,giant alien insects.
Friendly people,awesome food,especially for a veggie like me.
Terrifying rope bridges that make the one in "temple of doom" look tiny.
Quality raksi(Nepali moonshine),honey that puts psychedelic fungus to shame.
Views of the milky way that I can only compare to the "stacked"images made from many single photos.

An amazing,almost otherworldly place where even the most unspiritual person will reconsider their outlook.
Iv'e been there a couple of times,only spending a couple of months but its where I will retire and spend the last chapter of my life.

We haven't travelled to Europe yet, so maybe I have a second home waiting for me there. As of now, it is a quaint little hotel kept in the style of the 1960s right on the ocean in Florida...they don't even have an elevator...surprise!

I consider Crete my 2nd home. Although Turkeys got some nice places I probably wouldn't go back. Probably spend more time in Western Europe next trip.

Can I just say that visiting Miami is not a good representation of the USA.

Yes Florida is nice and tropical, but in many ways it is very different, VERY.

I see a lot of tourists go there and think that is how we all are.

We've traveled some, Canada, Dominican, Honduras, Grand Turk, Puerto Rico, Belize, Cozumel (cruise ports aren't the same as the in-country). I've never lived outside the county I grew up in in Michigan and of all the states and tourist stops outside we've visited I can't think of anywhere else I'd go to live. Maybe somewhere on the water where they have less than six months of winter. The Pensacola area on the Gulf is very nice but they get hurricanes.

My second home is a dumpster in a location I will not disclose at this time for obvious reasons. It is a free, roomy and a safe hangout.
Advantages:
- I love the color
-it's on rollers so it's somewhat portable. Since i am near the ocean I can swing the lid up a get a nice breeze as well as a view
- getting the smell out is a b&*cH but once it's cleaned it's tolerable
- you can lock it from inside and it's very safe at least until pick up time, but that's on a regular schedule so I known when to get out.
-when I get hungry i leave the lock off and get some fairly good stuff, often surprisingly fresh It's key to pick one near a grocery store
- it weather proof
- no one suspects that a person would actually live in here so I don't get many unwanted guests
I could go on and on but suffice it to say i am a happy camper. I love it here. And no I am not kidding.

My second home would be Italy I guess. Watching the Stromboli´s smoke while the sun sets beneath it, on a terrace smelling the sea and having a glass of red wine, just awesome!

I don't know what I am most amused by, that you love the color or that you can lock it from the inside.
You got the right kind of survival thinking though. I just wonder in a shtf scenario, when people start getting really really hungry are they going to be checking the dumpers?

You remind me of a movie where someone had a dumpster renovated for living but I can not remember:

the story
the name of the movie
the actors
the reason
...

Only that it was like green outside? Thank you for stealing my sleep tonight!!
