@SavannahH Indiana is a really cool state 😀 I got to go to the Indy 500 in college and I loved it!
Born and bred on Long Island (New York) and have spent the last 20 or so years up the coast in Connecticut. I love seeing the leaves change and having deer romp in my yard!
I have lived in outer Melbourne, Australia all my life and - despite having travelled to many wonderful countries - I couldn't see myself anywhere else! Although it would be nice during the winter to have a warmer home in Queensland or a holiday escape to New Zealand...
I was first anticipating some difficulties with school but all of them overpass my expectations and they succeed their integration without concern.
Because some are playing ice Hockey, we had to move very often across France for matches and tournaments. Another occasion to visit new places.
My older will participate to a road trip camp in Italy this summer !
I really think this year will have an impact for opening their mind and hope we will keep some contacts for long time.
I am from Denmark and have lived in Denmark all my life. I have lived in Denmark all my life, but have lived in several places in the country. Denmark is a small country, with very varied seasons and great nature.
If I were to move to another country, it would have to be the United States, Australia or Spain
I have lived in the midwest, but would love to live abroad at some point - perhaps Australia.
What an amazing, diverse, global group. We can learn so much from each other in this community!
I lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota going to travel school. Otherwise lived my whole life in Wisconsin, majority of my life spent in Green Bay where I currently live. Go Packers! I would like to live somewhere warm in the states since winters are getting longer and I would prefer spending more time outside in some nicer, warmer weather in the winter months. Not a fan of shoveling or driving in winter weather.
@ISJ if I lived in Denmark, I'd never leave 😀 Absolutely my favorite place in the world.
@JulieRuss: Wisconsin is great! I have been to Appleton and Green Bay, but I agree, shoveling snow gets tiring after a while...
@Amy_Bow Indeed! It's fascinating to learn where our fellow community members are from and how global our community is! XM folks can learn from and connect with anyone in the world! 🌍️
We are truly on every continent (yes, even Antarctica) ❄️😀
Good morning from a sunny Sweden, and what a WONDERFUL thread!
I was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden but took a job as a tour guide when I was 18. That enabled me to live and see a lot of wonderful places for around 8 months in each stop.
So I've lived in Mallorca (twice), Cyprus, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Barbados and Mexico.
These days I'm back in Sweden but reside in the southern part in a town called Lund, where I'm trying to enjoy life and raise a family :)
@MattiasM what a great photo! And how cool to have lived in so many interesting and unique places 😎☀️
@MattiasM What an adorable photo. I've been to Lund! My wife has relatives living there. We hope to return to visit again!
I love seeing all of the places far and wide our community comes from!
I will admit that it's also making me update my travel wishlist :)
I have lived in New York (close to Syracuse), Boston, Connecticut, Los Angeles, Indiana, Virginia, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and Tunisia. I live in Northern Virginia now but would LOVE to move back to Los Angeles.
I lived in Ohio, Michigan, and Tennessee. Would love to live half the year in Alaska and the other half in San Diego. And I love to visit other countries.
I have lived at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. I currently live in Dayton, Ohio. Not sure where I would like to live.
I have lived most of my life in Southern California - mostly Orange County. I was born in Bristol in the UK. My family immigrated to the US when I was 2 years old. We lived briefly in Philadelphia before moving to Long Beach and then settling in Orange County.
Where have you lived?
My entire life has been in Louisiana, but hopping around to a few different areas. I grew up near Baton Rouge (capital city), lived in Thibodaux for a while to start college, and moved to Lafayette to continue college.
Where do you live?
Right now our family (wife and our son) live in a suburb of Lafayette. As of right now we are right smack in the middle of both families, so road trips to visit are relatively easy to do. Lafayette at one time was voted one of the happiest cities in the country, to which we can certainly vouch!
Alternatively, where do you want to live?
Great question! One time I interviewed for a position in Virginia, unfortunate that did not work out because the state is beautiful. Other than that we are considering Pennsylvania or Florida soon as I want to continue further in grad school.
