I grew up in Hamilton, moved around to several provinces, bought a house in Odessa (then got laid off), traveled to other cities for work then bought a townhouse in Burlington while I worked there. Sold it and moved back to my house in Odessa (near Kingston). I then went to China to work
I liked living in Burlington.
My house in Odessa is in the countryside. I have a garden and several flower beds. However, it takes 20 min to drive to the closest grocery store.
