    No, although I was born in California, I have lived in Europe and now in Brazil. My family are still in California but with the internet, it is so easy to communicate I don't feel I am a great distance away.

    No, I use to live in a very small midwestern town in Iowa, it is a small farming community. There was not much for jobs there, so our family moved to a bigger town, which had more jobs. There wasn't a lot to do in the small town, but there is more to do where I live now.

    Yes, I live in the same village I was born in. I was born in my Gran's house in the same village in 1962 and I still live here. Don't know if that's some kind of record or not! But I love it! Also, although rural, we're not that far from the big towns and quite near to Edinburgh, so i think I've got the best of both worlds.

      How did you get away with a one word answer? If I try to do that it says my answer is too short.

    No, I went from the north of the U.S. to the south. Don't miss the winters.

    Nope, I was born on the east coast and lived there awhile but I've lived most of my life in the midwest.

    Yes, I do. I left the state for college but did return, married here and live here.

    My family moved when I was 14. It wasn't far away from our original home, but I had to change schools so it seemed like a big move to me. When I was 18 I moved farther away to pursue my career and ever since then I've moved, on an average, every few years. My husband and I have lived in Peru for the past 15 years, so we're far away from "home".

    Yes. I actually wrote a hub about it. Life in My Hometown "The Birthplace of Country Music".

    I have lived in so many different places that I don't even remember the place where I was born. I father's job moved us around, and now my husband's job is taking us places!

    I didn't grow up in a town, but out in the country. Now I live 6 miles from my childhood home, in a small town. To get here though I lived in three different countries over 17 years.

    No, but I try to go back and visit as much as possible. One shou;d never forget where they come from.

      One should never forget where they came from, but visiting the place might not be safe or necessary for some cases: memories can take us there fairly effectively.

    No, left after college and have lived in a number of other towns and cities and a handful of other states.

    No, but I live in the same county I was born in and about 20 miles from my birthplace -- Kopperl, Bosque County, Texas. It's amazing how one's life works out -- I never intended to return to this area but came home to care for my widowed mother and when she passed away just stayed. It's proved to be a delightful place to enjoy my dotage, as it were, and I'm living proof that "yes, one can go home again." Good question!

    When I was 18 I left my hometown in Louisiana to move to Tennessee with my future husband.  We ended up moving back home to be closer to family.  Though neither of us live in the same small towns we grew up in, we do live within driving distance.

    I live in the same town I was born in although I have moved away and returned several times. After all, there's no place like home!
