Where have you lived

Post 1

It occurred to me that there are people here who live or have have lived and worked in some interesting places world wide.

Perhaps it would be interesting to find out how far some hootooers have roamed especially if they have owned or rented a home in far away places.

Even if you have moved around living in various places in just one country, the comparisons and stories would make very interesting reading.

It could result in an excellent entry.

Rev Nick - give me poutine, or give me death

I have lived and worked in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, 3 locations within Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. I've also had cause to work some extended times in the US, Quebec and Nunavut. While much of this is all still within Canada - if you look at the sheer size and distances involved, such travels would have covered quite a lot more than the UK and Europe . . .

I have lived and worked in Russia, Turkey and Egypt, as well,as an oil rig out in the Caspian Sea.

Neither of them were ideal places to be?

I also lived in a flat in Aberdeen when I was working there, that's a cold cold place in the winter smiley - winkeye

Florida Sailor - rebuilding windows

Hi bob

Just to give a reply to the opening post, I have never lived in far away exotic places.

I was born and lived most of my young life in Western New York (for the snobs in NYC - that is NOT upstate).

Back when Jack Kennedy was still President my Father decided we should move to Florida after driving the width of the state in a snow blizzard. From that time to this I have always lived near the Tampa Bay are of west Florida.

This is not to say I have not lived in some interesting places here. As a teen I lived in a comfortable suburban house, with a bus to school. For a couple of years I had an apartment on the water (one of the smaller bays). After that I purchased a sailboat to live aboard. It was while living in her I married my wife. After about ten years of living on the boat we decided to buy a house in the city.

After almost 20 years of living there, the company I work for decided to move further north, changing my commute time from 45 minutes to over 70 minutes each way.

At that time we moved into an over 55 trailer park (they prefer we call it 'Manufactured Home Community) about 3 1/2 years ago. Most of the residents are retired (I am not) and almost half are seasonal, coming south for only the winter months. Our main entrance displays both the US and Canadian flags to recognize the nationally of most of the residents.

A few months ago my wife decided that he wanted a bigger mobile home, so we are in the process of fixing them both up and transferring our stuff bit by bit.

I have written about some of this in smiley - thepost.

I don't know if this is what you had in mind, but I thought I would share.

Bob--Well, if I were a balloon, I'd be getting kind of soft, but not noticeably smaller without measuring...
