This was posted around a year ago I think,but seeing that in the few months the forum has become very popular with alot of new members joining it might be relevant to bring this up again.
So where is everybody from?
For anyone who doesn't know I am from Guernsey,Channel Islands.Definately one of the most beautiful places in the British Isles and hottest!It is very popular with tourists in the summer season which makes the airport very busy with flights from mainly the UK and the Benelux regions and Germany.Beautiful scenery,lovely weather and very friendly people make the island a great place to live.What about where you live?

I'm in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia!
It's a coastal city just south of the mighty city of Sydney!
It is really fantastic down here, we have the beach 5 min east of us, and the mountains 5 min west. We live 10 min from the heart of town. I'm going to get some pics so if anyone's interested I'll post them!

Hi,

I'm from a town called Goole, near to Hull. I almost practically live in Hull anyways. Not much to say about this area really, except BAe at Brough is close to me, and my next door neighbour is a wing inspector for them. Oh, and we have a new massive attraction called the Deep opening on Saturday with loads of sharks and stuff. Although< i think I'll stay at home instead.

I'm from Orly near Paris.

I'm pretty lucky since I can watch the planes taking off and landing without the noise.

Scarborough, the worst seaside resort in Britain? Have you ever been to lovely Mablethorpe, cause it's terrible there.

shauny2k1 - I used to live in Hull, too. When I was a young whippersnapper (all of 10 yrs ago!) I spent 2 weeks doing some work experience at BAE Brough.

I live in the Isle of Man now, which is wayyy ahead of JER and GCI except perhaps in terms of weather!

I'm from Walsall, about 12 miles from BHX and also have good views of aircraft departing 33 and on the approach for 15.

Comet, there are far worse resorts than Scarborough, and you have such wonderful countryside all around. As someone who lives in an industrial town in the Midlands, I'd swop with you any day.
