My choice is a cave. Beach,Mountain,or a forest have been there and i hear about them . To me a cave is more exciting. I read people have hollowed out caves for a long time.
We need shelter from the elements, such as wind, rain and what have you. In some parts of the world it was easier for man to carve out warm dry spaces than to use other building methods.Houses are difficult to build ,we need the right kind of material to build them.
The digging of caves most of the time is easier. Image by Wikipedia
The most famous caves are probably in the loess plains of China. During the ice ages the Gobi desert was cold and windy.The glaciers eroded a huge amount of rock.It produced fine rock dust.During thousands of years a huge amount of this dust were sedimented.
People used this fine sand to build caves. It was considered less work than building a house.
Cave houses built in the hot arid areas is useful, the temperature underground is quite pleasant.
I’d like to try living in cave house. It might be exciting.
