You've been around. Where was your favorite place?

A list of top 10 places indeed!

Hmm, let's see

*technically* if I go by what we wrote on our address labels - Huntingdon is a community within Abbotsford - but hey!

Huntingdon, British Columbia
Clearbrook, British Columbia
Abbotsford, British Columbia
Victoria, British Columbia
Ottawa, Ontario
Calgary, Alberta
Surrey, British Columbia
Vancouver, British Columbia
Santa Cruz, California
Capitola, California

I bounced back and forth between Abbotsford and Victoria while going to school, and between every other city - home base while contemplating the next location.

You seem to've stuck to the West Coast with the exception of Ottawa. How did that happen. :-D

I don't like snow or winter :)

It was a running joke in our family, that my parents moved to the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area of British Columbia, from Saskatchewan and Ontario, to escape the hard winters, and find the best weather in Canada.

Growing up, I always said to my mom "where can I move to, that has better weather than here?"

The answer, apparently, was California :D

Oh, and I was only in Ottawa for the summer. Calgary, I did spend a winter there, and that was enough for me.

I was born and raised in the Buffalo, New York area. I spent 9 years in Florida -- way too muggy. Now live in Austin, Texas. Not nearly as muggy as Florida, and no possibility of several feet of snow. ;-D

Better still, no state income tax!

I've been to Yakima and Vancouver.

So it's safe to say you're a west coaster, is it? :)

Nice collection of places, woot!

Wow. That is an impressive list of places.

Not counting the various dorms in college, I've lived in 6 houses, with 4 telephone numbers, in two metropolitan areas.

I had the same phone number at houses 1 & 2 and 4 & 6. The first one was a transfer within the subdivision and the second one I gave up the line and got it back two years later when I moved back into the exchange.
