Turners Hill, UK
I would be surprised if many people have heard of Turners Hill, let alone been there. (I lived in neighbouring Crawley Down for a while)

I have not travelled about at all.

Hartfield, Crawley Down, Crowborough, Heathfield, Hastings x2 (Sussex, UK)
Wimbledon (Surrey, UK)

... and three of those were only for a few months each. In fact, the sum total of my visits to Switzerland possibly exceed each of these.

Switzerland - TBA (Still working on it.) The next few months will probably decide this one way or the other.

Re: How many places... ?

Oh god, I don't know anymore...

Prague, yayyyy
Berlin, Germany
FLA in the US
Barrington Hills in IL
NY, actually it was New Jersey
I stayed in London and Essex, on and off for a couple of years
I lived in Blackpool fora quite a bit, fun fun, I miss Lancashire
I stayed in CA, Alberta, and moved around a bit there
Limerick, and moved around there as well, actually Galway and Cork was the bestest
Ste Croix
and now La Cote

I can't remember, honestly, anymore...It's nice to go through the memories, though. I think Ireland and Prague was the most fun. CA the most pictoresque, FLA the least sensible, Berlin the most activist, CH the most expensive, hahah..

Re: How many places... ?

As an adult-

South Carolina
Georgia
Arizona
Ohio
Switzerland

I stayed in Germany for a month when I was a younger man, didn't learn much German but I did learn that drinking 12-15 hefeweizen beers every day for 4 weeks will put exactly 10kg on your frame . And that you don't get a hangover from hefeweizen!

But plenty of time sitting on the throne reading the paper - given the quantities mentioned - unless it was Franziskaner.
