The Bendybadger Substitute Bonusball Bonanza 18 Feb 2017- Brought to you from Luxembourg

edited February 2017 in Everything else LEGO
Carrying on @bendybadger's great tradition, I'm bringing you this week's edition of the Brickset Bonusball Bonanza.

For anybody wondering how this works, well, it's simple. Answer the below question, and get a number based on your post in order between 1 and 59 for the UK national lottery bonus ball.  If your number gets drawn on Saturday night you win the prize. If you don't make the first 59 replies, well there's always next week to be a little quicker. Although we take the UK lottery number, participation is not limited to Brickset Forum members from the UK! Except for @SumoLego, who can take his usual 60-61 spot ;)

This week's prize is the winner's choice of either #30152 Mining Quad, #30116 Rapunzel's Market Visit, #30371 Knight's Cycle or #30521 The Mini Batmobile.

So, on to this week's question:
If you could live anywhere on this planet, where would you choose to live?

For me it would be Funchal, Madeira. I am most comfortable with temperatures between 15-25C, so Madeira, where this is the norm all year round (with a handful of exceptions), is my personal piece of heaven! One major disadvantage would be that [email protected] does not seem to ship to Madeira, but that's what forwarding services are for?

Good luck!

    Probably New Zealand

    Billund, obviously ;-)

    Malta. I'm a huge fan of pyrotechnics and Malta is known for their inspired design. It seems like a dreamland to me. 

    Of course, I'd have to deal with island fever...

    I'm actually pretty fond of my current location. Seattle. Not too hot, not too cold. Mountains, ocean, trees. Pretty amazing place!

    I loved living in France, probably would go back there.

    I think I'd stay here in Ireland,  I've too many memories here.

    Toss-up beren Billund and in the middle of Yellowstone Park.

    -Oh or one of the Hobbit houses in New Zealand

    -or Hampton court

    I'm being very realistic here...

    If I could live anywhere I'd live on the road, wandering from place to place just exploring the world!

    Rome, Italy, Love the roman architecture there.
  • bobabricksbobabricks Member Posts: 1,842
    Where I'm at is pretty okay, maybe try out Sweden or Denmark.

    It's cheating if you tip me off.
  • sukhsukh Member Posts: 142
    Hot, tropical and relaxed for me with some nice cuisine. I'm going for Mauritius.
  • starwars4everstarwars4ever Member Posts: 489
    Florida or California. Love the sun and the theme parks!
  • diddypididdypi Member Posts: 25
    New England, USA - up in the mountains, in the woods, by a lake.  aaahhhh...
  • jmeninnojmeninno Member Posts: 1,176
    Enfield, CT.  ;)  Honestly, I have never been to France or Italy, and have always wanted to vacation there, so I could blindly say one of those countries, but that's kind of risky (granted, I'd probably love both places).  If I had to choose right, good question.  I'd probably stay in New England.  It's what I know and love.  And that way, vacations are preserved as vacations.  :)

    Right where I am. San Diego, California

    I would live in a bubble that could travel around the world and cross time and space. In my bubble I would go and visit past historic moments and also see what was coming. If you want a more rational answer, then I pick Berlin. It's awesome.
  • CCCCCC Member Posts: 20,526
    Amalfi or Positano.

    In the moment. 

    (Says the motivational poster.)

    I actually love where I live, but could very used to island time in a place like Bermuda or St. Kitts. 

    Mrs. Yoda would answer Florence. And I wouldn't argue with her. Would go back in a second.

    Fuerteventura it's a beautiful island with great weather and nice beaches
    Fiji - great climate, great food, great people. 
  • Toc13Toc13 Member Posts: 1,144
    I'd go to New Zealand. Either up around Kerikeri or down near Wellington with the Mashup & the Fairy Penguins
  • mmozzanommozzano Member Posts: 417
    I'd go with Singapore, love that place. 
  • GallardoLUGallardoLU Member Posts: 644
    Monaco, hands down, one of the gems of Europe.

    The front of the Leciester Square store's queue :P

    While I'd love to visit other cities (London, Paris, Tokyo, Rome), I prefer to live in sweet home Chicago. It's what I know and I like it (except the sweltering heat of summer).
  • SalamalexSalamalex Member Posts: 297
    On the outskirts of Berlin or at the top of a haveli in Jodhpur.
  • donutboydonutboy Member Posts: 758
    Pokhara, Nepal.
  • AllBrickAllBrick Member Posts: 1,497
    New New York.
  • SirBenSirBen Member Posts: 592
    I prefer to live in whatever location my body is currently, although escaping into my Lego realm is a nice vacation.

    Or the frozen tundra of the winter.

    I think I would choose New Zealand, as others have said. I've never been, but I think all of the hobbits would be good neighbors.

    There's no place like home: I'm settled here in sunny Bournemouth.
  • VenunderVenunder Member Posts: 2,659
    A sleepy little place called Friskney.
  • MattDawsonMattDawson Member Posts: 1,486
    Cornwall. Despite the news reports, it's actually not that bad jobs wise and there's plenty of heritage stuff to volunteer on at the weekends... :D

    Victoria Peak,Hong Kong.
  • LobotLobot Member Posts: 1,029

    Northern Scotland - remote, low population density and great views of the night sky!

  • janscjansc Member Posts: 60
    Canada. Nice warm summers. Good winters with snow and ice.

    Somewhere other than my house.  The idiot gas transporter decided they were going to waltz onto my driveway yesterday to lay 30m of gas supply to the meter without notice.  No emergency, just routine.  I said no because they said they wouldn't make good and they cut me off.  Second day of stand-off, no hot water, no heating and grumpy but their office seem to think I'm in for stacks in compensation.  Bring on more coldness.  Anybody have any young, vulnerable children they need looking after for the weekend?

    Anywhere? The center of the earth, to live down there I would have to be some kind of superhuman. 
  • TyresOFlahertyTyresOFlaherty Member Posts: 345
    Somewhere without winters. I know people loving having all seasons, but I am getting sick of shoveling snow!

    ...although the snow makes it so I don't have to do lawn maintenance, so it's a double-edged sword...
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman Member Posts: 1,524
    Canada could be quite nice with the snow, then there's the US and Japan who both love their cars, hmmm.
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Member Posts: 2,311
    I visited Iceland 12 years ago and love it there, so peaceful and remote. Its got a bit popular with tourists now so might be a bit busy at times though. Not sure what the LEGO scene is like out there, but as everything is imported it won't be cheap. I paid £10/pint back then

    Banff, Canada :)

    By the sea, but not in a resort, somewhere not too warm or cold for me. Canada or Scotland maybe?
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Member Posts: 1,781
    Wherever MrsB is.
