I'm always amazed at how many people choose mountains and beaches. I'm attracted to open meadows or prairie streching to the horizon. When I go to Thailand it will be to the rice fields of Isan, not the beaches of Phuket or the mountains of Chiang Mai (both are beautiful).
But daily life? Maybe living in a cottage in the Cotswolds visiting my neighbors for a cuppa tea. But Lagos in Portugal, Lillehammer in Norway or Novi Pazar in Serbia might do just fine.
Nursing is very hard work and I admire anyone who can do it. My mother was a nurse and loved it when she was assigned to work with pedriatic patients in the hospital she worked at (they were too small a hospital to have a NICU).
Anyway, this is a beautiful and moving blog post. You clearly love the work you do and are quite good at it. Thank you for sharing.
