It depends... In the US I just hate moving, since I have to do it myself. In my old country I did not mind, since labor is cheap and e can hire people to do it without being outrageous.
The last time I moved in Brazil I moved 2500 miles. I gave the guys the keys for the old apt and the keys for the new house. They packed EVERything, and when I got to the new house, everything was in the proper places. If it is like this, I love moving! LOL

In my 25 years I've moved 13 times (including Germany, America and Scotland) do to circumstances in my family (and no, neither of my parents are in the military). While moving someplace new is always very interesting, I've felt pretty rootless my whole life, so I'm looking forward to finally settling down once I get married this summer and have kids in a year or two (fingers crossed that it will really work)!

About 13 times so far - mostly when I was younger. Planning at least 2 more moves. One from a house to apartment here in town and my second in a year or so (mostly so) to (more than likely) Asheville, NC to be closer to family and more variety in the seasons.

I moved around a lot growing up, so I'm almost like a pro at moving. So my DH and I had moved every year when we first got together, stayed in same area. Then we had our son and we moved 5x by the time he was 7 but the last move was a buying of the house and we have been here for 10years now. But I can't wait for my son to graduate next year so we can move out of state hopefully. I love my house but I'm getting antsy! It is in my blood! LOL
I can't change my past, but I can change my future!
Do you enjoy moving frequently or do you prefer to stay put in the same place?
I get antsy and love moving about, but with children that isn't fair and I prefer to stay put, but that really hasn't happened for them so far. I'm planning on this next move being pretty permanent. (At least the village, if not the actual building.)
