Just wondering where all us gransnetters are posting from? I know from being on here a while now that we have GNs in the UK, Australia, USA, France and Spain, but anyone from somewhere else and if so, what's it like to live there?

I'm from Bonnie Scotland and I love it here. I can't imagine living anywhere else. The scenery is beautiful. I live a thirty minute drive from Loch Lomond. I love to travel but can't imagine wanting to live anywhere else.

Central Italy. Been here 11years. Big mistake even my Italian husband says it was a mistake to move here. He was in England for 44years!

North coast of British Columbia Canada. A fairly remote town, but a beautiful spot to live.

East Midlands!! Very pedestrian!!

Though it is a great place to live as my family are all within striking distance.

grannymy I'm exactly 2 miles from Loch Lomond andI wouldn't swap it for anywhere in the world .Its only 18 miles to Glasgow ,I can be in Stirling in 25 minutes and its so handy for the train up the west coast to Mallaig from Dumbarton.I cant think of any downside apart from Trident parked on the other side of the hill and the convoys that pass my back door .
