    Just curious as to why everyone lives where they currently do.

    I'll start.

    I live in Arizona. My parents didn't want to deal with winter and especially the snow. My old man is from and spent half his life in Canada and definitely was tired of all the snow and ice. So mainly the weather conditions is what attracted them to Arizona.

    What part of Australia? It's a beautiful country. I spent about a month or so there a couple years ago.

    I live in Reno because it's where I wanted to go to school at the University of Nevada. Also because I lived in Lake Tahoe and really like the area.

    That's awesome. The longest was in Melbourne. Sydney was second longest. I loved both. I went to Adelaide, but it wasn't my favorite place. I stopped over on Kangaroo Island and also Tasmania. I went to Hobart on Tasmania, and that had to have been one of my favorite parts of the trip. The only downside was I was only in Tasmania for roughly 36 hours. :( Also got to do the Great Ocean road. Probably wouldn't do that road again though, but I definitely will go back at some point.

    Man, you saw plenty of the country, I haven't been to Tassie but it is on the list, great beer, laid back from what friends have told me. Yeah Adelaide is nothing exciting.

    I was born in this shithole called Arizona.

    I wasn't lucky enough to be born on the east coast like my sister, and mother were.

    I've moved away from Arizona twice (southern California then to the PA/DE border, for two years) but came back because my parents refuse to move.

    I live here because this is where my parents live and I have lived here my whole life. Plus I plan on going to ODU, so I am stuck for a while. No plans to move, as of right now.

    I only wish that I got to see the North half of the country. I did also get to go watch an Aussie Rules Football game in Melbourne. That was a hell of an experience. I loved it! I'm hoping to make it to the great barrier reef as well. I also want to pop over to New Zealand at some point. I was very close to going there as well while I was close to it, but I didn't have time.
