  • A liitle international flava

    Who has lived overseas? Where and when?

    For me, I spend almost 2 years (1968 & 69) in Okinawa. And I lived for 6 mos in London back in 89.
    Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

    I lived in Israel for a year back in 89/90 -- I left just as the 1st Gulf War was getting started.

        Moved to London when I was 9, Came back when I was old enough

        I have two brothers and a sister.. I just can't wait to see how we all turn out when my siblings are grown up (sis is 1, bro 3, other bro 19).

        My little little bro and sister live in Ireland, my younger bro moved back to the US when he was 16 and I stayed in the UK till I was 21. Its gonna be strange how different we all end up.

            I lived (and worked) in Bosnia for about 2 and a half years (99-02). Not as exotic as some of the other places mentioned...but was able to visit lots of nicer places while living there!

                  Yes it counts! As does my 12 days in Amsterdam .

                  I moved from LA to Scotland (my mum was missing the rain it seems)and lived there for most of life. But now live in NY. Been to a few places but none beat here.

                        Daisy - that's because your friend was female. All she had to do was say, "My name is...", and the guys were hooked. You women tend to be much more selective. ha!
