ton1874, whereabouts in Scotland are you? I've spent quite a bit of time there, and worked on a shorebird survey of the western and northern coasts from Ft. William all the way up to the Kyle of Tongue, spent a week on Skye and few days on the Isle of Rhum, and I've spent time in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness...really I think the west of Scotland is my favourite place on the planet so far.

I live in Montréal now, but for most of my life I lived in the US, 18 years near New York, 10 years near Boston, 10 years in Vermont.

I live in Santa Barbara, CA. Where am I going? According to most local people's perceptions/presumptions/arrogance, I shouldn't go anywhere because it's all downhill from here. Originally from Central California, where the cows are.

Seriously, where am I going? I'm just in talks to extend my job here, but only if I get a couple unpaid hiatuses to travel. Anyone from somewhere they love and have a couch to lend a vagabond road tripper? Portland people, I'm looking your way :lol:

If I didn't live with psycho chick I'd say yes. But... :roll:

However, I can highly recommend the local hostels. I've stayed in the NW one for about 3.5 weeks total and have heard good things about the SE one.

I'm from Dublin, Ireland, and after a few years in New York City now live in Toronto, Canada.

I'm going to Ireland in October and Italy early next year. I'm going to the gym tonight.

From Rochester, New York (not in any way to be confused with New York City. In fact, it's 300 miles from New York City and I've only been down to NYC twice in my life. So please never ask me how things are in "the Big Apple," because I have no idea! :wink: ).

Right now, living in Los Angeles, California, as I usually do in the summers. Although it may seem to make no sense to move to the hotter place in the summer, it works well - many, many more things are air conditioned in LA than in Rochester. Also, it's mad humid in Rochester, too!

From: North Dakota (fargo)...
I always get this: "Wow! I've never met anyone from north dakota before!"
I once got this: "North dakota? So how do you guys like your beer down south?" I can only hope he was drunk. (North dakota is by Canada for the geographically challenged)

Now: In Iowa

Future: Moving to Los Angeles sometime next year. Hello palm trees!
