I am posting here because I think telling one's age invites assumptions. I am from the old school,where no one asks one's age and you will most likely be receptive to whoever. And, oh yes, I forgot, I am from Conn.

Born in Vaqncouver, but grew up in Toronto (eh?).
For the last 24 years I have lived in the middle of nowhere, a.k.a. the armpit of heck.
Actually, I live in Thompson, Manitoba, a small mining town in the north of Manitoba. If you like outdoor sports (canoeing, snowmobiling, 4-wheeler ATV, hunting, fishing, etc.) it is ideal. US residents come 1500 miles to visit here, at the end of the paved roads, and beyond. I enjoy cross country skiing, and down-hill skiing at -20C, but my preferred travelling is civilization - New York, London, Paris; and we are heading for Italy next month. This is an area where the town is only 40 years old (before that, wilderness) and the nearest big city (Winnipeg)treasures its oldest buildings from 1900 as a unique treasure. It is great visiting an area where evidence of civilization goes back millenia, and the "new" buildings are from the 1700's.

Hyvaa huomentaa, Katja. I was born in Helsinki too but left when really little.
Finnish is beyond me now, although I will always be proud of my birth country. (Cool...highest per capita internet usage.)

My parents were academes and their work took our family to South America, where I spent my childhood. After research years in many countries and summers in Europe, Dad took a tenured position at....K.U.!

A nice progressive college town, but I still craved the exotic so I escaped to college in Hawaii....and stayed. It's lovely here. Katja, if your travels ever bring you to Hawaii, let me know. BTW I have cousins in Helsinki and Porvoo. Hyvaa paiva, aloha and choos!

Kalena...Lucky you live Hawaii! I lived there for ten years - it is still in my blood...

I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and lived there for six whole months.

Now I live in Worthington, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus.

Born and raised in the Detroit metro area, college too.
After spending the last several years working in the San Francisco, CA Bay area we moved to Colorado last fall. Starting to think of moving back to Michigan to be near all our family... For now I'm enjoying the skiing and natual beauty of Colorado.

Hi Deborah. Very nice to make the acquaintence of another St. Paulite! (You may know this already, but I forgot to mention St. Paul's "French Connection". St. Paul was originally called "Pig's Eye", taking its name from Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant, a French-Canadian trapper and whiskey trader who moved a group of squatters to a river landing near Fort Snelling in the 1800s. The name changed in 1841 when another Frenchman, a French priest named Father Lucien Galtier, built a log chapel to honor St. Paul.)

Sally, are you implying my sense of humor is akin to the name of the Minnesota state bird? :~)

Joanne, that's funny; there's a similar joke out here in Seattle, about there being four seasons: fall, winter, spring, and road construction. When we were in Sorrento this past April, we met a woman from New York named Nancy Robinson who runs the Grace Gallery in the old part of Sorrento. She told us she fell in love with Sorrento on a visit and vowed one day to return there to live. If you're interested, check out her website at: http://www.gracegallery.it/

So nice to see that people at this site are from many countries. Usually I visit The Lonely Planet and that seems to be mainly Aussies.
