Whenever I visit the country, I think "wouldn't this be nice to live here". Then I get back to the city & realise all the great things we have to do. I think I may end up getting a little bored full-time in the country - as lovely as it is. I do love the hustle & bustle of a city & there are still many "green" places to spend your time. Like Happy Mom's answer - I love Manhattan & I'd love to be able to live there for at least a year to see how I'd enjoy it.
After having the opportunity to have lived in both, I'd definitely say the country is where I want to be. The simple life really taught me to put things in perspective and appreciate what little access to stuff you have. It's a great feeling to be able to experience two vast sides of living and love life a little more when you're in the country.
I couldn't live in the country. My ideal place to live would be smack in the middle of Manhattan. I need my dose of the city as much as possible. The funny story is that when I moved from the US to Melbourne, Australia, Melbourne felt like "country"!! Hahaha
