    Around 60 miles or so I guess.  I was born in the twin cities & I live about an hour north of there now.

    My kids live about 15 miles away from the hospital they were born at.

    Probably 1800 to 2000 miles...from the beach to the mountains.

    i was born in california and now live in south dakota. but then i was born with the spirit of adventure, and i have lived in many states and been down to visit mexico a couple of times. i was born on the west coast and have been to the east coast. i have lived near the ocean, in the mountains, in the desert and on the great plains. i have witnessed tornadoes and been in earthquakes. this is a beautiful country, and i barely touched the tip of it.

    thanks for asking this because I didn't know the answer and had to look it up and found that it was actually twice as far away as I had thought!  I live, as the crow flies, about 40 miles from the centre of London, but I was born in North London, actually 94 miles drive from where I now live in Sussex.

    The hospital I was born in is about 14 miles away from the town that I live in. I have always lived here except when I was in college in Dublin so I suppose I am not very adventurous or inclined to travel.

    Born in Colombia and currently living in Spain. I am used to kilometers.

    About 8000 km is about 5000 miles. I'm very far away and can't remember a single thing of the place I was born.

    I was adopted at the age of nine months old and never came back.
