    I was inspired by another thread where a poster was asking for advice on different areas of England.

    How many times have you moved home (from being a kid to present day), and which areas have you lived in? Maybe name your favourite place too. Count them up!

    I've moved home (let me count them up here)....25 times (29 if you include the 4 different cruiseships I lived on for 2 years from the age of 18-20).

    In the UK though, I've lived in Gateshead, Newcastle, North Shields, Washington, Durham, Somerset, Cardiff, Oxford, Leeds, Liverpool and Hull.
    Abroad...well, I lived on cruiseships, so whilst each ship itself was my home, the location changed everyday! Too many locations to mention I guess. LOL

    My favourite place to live in the UK though is a tie between Somerset and Durham.

    What about you guys?

    Erm...

    I was born in Holland, then we moved to Shetland Islands, then to Bedford, then to Kingston Park in Newcastle and then Ponteland outside Newcastle. So we've moved 4 times, I've lived in 5 houses. Even though I don't really remember the Shetland Islands, I want to live there in the future and have some dogs there. I think it's beautiful there and all my family think I would suit the island life :D

    Strange you say that Inca's mum...as soon as I saw that you had lived in the Shetland Isles, I thought "Wow". That's my idea of heaven. Just a nice relaxed pace of life, beautiful landscapes and sitting in front of a fire on a cold dark evening with my dogs. I think they call it getting out of the rat race.
    I hope you get to achieve your dream!

    Weird you say that! Despite me moving almost 30 times in my 32 years on the planet, I have spent the last 11 years living here in the same house, apart from when I moved out into rented while I had it refurbed.

    We must be similar!

    Far too many! Lol

    I moved twice with my family before I was old enough to remember it!
    Then another two times with my mum. (my dad has also moved 4 times since)
    I moved out of my mums up to glasgow and then moved another 4 times.
    Moved back home to my mums new house.
    Then out into my own place again, and moved accross town to be closer to stuff.
    Me and OH moved to here.

    So that is 13 (17 if you count moving with my dad).

    And we are moving tomorrow. That's the last one for a long time.
