Most people, when asked "What is your idea of the perfect place?" will answer with a geographic location they have been to once, or a place they have selected as a place they would like to go, because they see it as their ideal vacation/retirement/lifestyle location.
There's nothing wrong with that, but what I think they miss is the frame of mind they think they will have when they get there.
As it is their ideal location, they will be content. It is a place where they will feel the weight of the world off their shoulders. They will be able to spend quality time with the things and the people they care about, doing the things they want to be doing.
What they haven't grasped yet is that feeling is portable.
Better still, being able to have that mindset here--now--may be thing that gets you there sooner.
