Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I have been in many places, the USA, India, Caribbean and all over Europe but my base has always been here (near Loch Lomond in Scotland).
How far are you from where you were born and raised?
I have to check this out for myself, but personally I have never stayed in a city for more than 4 years since I was born. And I haven't visited my birthplace since I moved out when I was 4 or 5.
BeeDeeDubbleU, I would consider you lucky in a way.
It's a pain. I have to list it as "Place of Birth" and people often ask, "Oh, you're from there!" No, I'm not. I would make up a weird story about living in the rural village, but they were very nice to my folks, so I don't.
I'll take my son back there one day when he gets older, but I'll never go back to live in my country of birth. I love it too much in my adopted home!
Do I get the prize for the biggest distance? I couln'd find a place further away from my dominating mother :)

I'm reminded of Salmon spawning.. they always come back.
This is depressing....
less than 200 miles from where I grew up, and once again, I've been further, and been closer. Don't get back as often as I would like, or should, in that both my parents and her parents reside there, along with her sis, one of my brothers, and another not all that far removed. Other kin have long moved on on my side of the equation, though she could still fill a reunion hall rather easily without reaching too far outside the county lines except for us.
