Which countries have you lived in?

Aside from Scotland - in which I have lived almost all of my life - between the ages of six-months and one-year-and-six-months I lived in the Falkland Islands, because my dad was working there and so mum and I went to live with him. Because of my age then, I have no memories of the Falklands, but there are good photos that my dad had taken.

Only the USA. Never even been outside of it. Haven't even ever been outside of a few states, for that matter. (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.).

Germany, Papua New Guinea (Niugini), Australia.

Is there a reason that we have been asked?

Aside from the USA I lived in Spain for almost three years while in the military. It was a great experience. :D

I've always lived in Britain all my life. I have never lived in any other countries.

The Republic of California, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the Confederate States of
America (Georgia).

I'm GOING to live in Ireland (Dublin), France (Paris), and Italy (Rome) before I die.

Is there a world outside New England? :) I love New England! It's so beautiful, and historic, and the food rocks, and the people are so cool, smart and funny. Hello? Seth MacFarlane? Currently the funniest person in the world! 8)

I think all Americans should have to visit New England once in their lives.

China, France, UAE, Qatar.
Living in all these different countries really opened my mind to foreign culture.

I've lived in Sweden all my life, and I haven't been outside of Scandinavia yet. I think I would like to live in another country, because only being exposed to one way of living I guess is not a very good thing.
