Hell, Matt! You can move from one point of Houston to yet another and still easily exceed 50 miles!

First time I visited the States I went to San Francisco and I thought: "Wow!"

Re: Where Are We From?

Born in Nottingham England (Robin Hood's County),
Nottingham is world famous for Robin Hood, Nottingham Lace making and Nottingham Forest Football Club.
I live about 15 mins drive away from "what remains" of Sherwood Forest

My folks are from County Carlow in the Irish Republic.
Love going back "Home" every time I return my rels say "how long are you home for" the house my Gramps was born in is still family owned, as is the farm.
Circa 150 years on that land. We always cheer on the home country in football, rugby and other events....even when they play England - Never forget your roots.

I lived in Belfast Northern Ireland for 2 years when I was 18 - about 15 Mins away from Harland and Wolff Shipyard on the lough where the famous Titanic, Olympic and to a lesser extent Britannic were built.

Plans to go see the US in the future, route 66 is a long held ambition.

Re: Where Are We From?

I was born in Detroit, MI. My family moved to the burbs when I was around 10. I've floated around the area ever since, but never more than 15-20 miles from the city.

Follow the evidence where it leads and question everything.

I had a short vacation at centre parks in Sherwood Forest a few years ago,went to see forest play Leeds Utd.I was in Belfast a few months ago and went to the Titanic exhibition.The guys who built it worked hard,it must have need heartbreaking for them when it sunk.

Re: Where Are We From?

Born in St. Lucia. Lived in 4 different US states and Barbados. Maryland and Cali being my favourite. Baltimore holds a very special place in my heart. Now living in Jamaica. This island has to be the most lawless in the Caribbean. Sometimes it drives me nuts but mostly I love the chaos of it all. I'm not sure I would trade island living for anything else. After living and working in the U.S. and seeing a bit of Europe. It really feels like a never-ending holiday.

Re: Where Are We From?

I was born in the US Air Force and Married a Navy gal. When our kids started school we determined to stay in the same house until they all graduated. Currently I live 27 miles from the spot I was born. But I have lived on 3 continents. (this and 2 others.)

Re: Where Are We From?

I'm from Georgia, USA. I was born in the Piedmont region, but grew up in the Low Country near Savannah, where I still have my home and am raising my son. My brother and I also inherited our mother's family farm in Florida, so I bounce back and forth between home and the farm quite a lot.
