The living choices
I was watching a show on TV before going to bed about people going to extreme lengths to stay away from civilization like they say living off the grid somewhat and I started thinking what kind of place you want to vacation or live in if you had a choice. There are most of the people who would rally love to live near the coast or beach or water body like a lake or a river but preferably a beach setting will be the ideal one. Some people like me would like live in a mountainous region with fresh air and great views of the mountains and wildlife and nothing else but nature which I call it living in isolation. But it is really not a complete isolation since I don’t want to be cut off from civilization because I will need some things in an emergency. Most of the people will avoid this as it gets colder during the night and there are no water views. I am not going to put a case about living near the beach as enough has been written to support his narrative and don’t get me wrong, I love to beach too and would like to stay there but not permanently. It is nice to visit and stay for a few days and then move on. But here my point in saying that living in or near the mountain is the allure of being quietness away from all the hustle and bustle of the city life. You can also say that living near the beach is also the same thing but the noise of water hitting the land and sometimes worse like hitting your house and the gusty winds sometimes just rattle me.
