      Residency - Total of One - Southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada ...... all homes within about 50 miles of each other, maximum.
      Actually, other than my current residence, all within about a 10 mile radius
      of Victoria.
      Is that a record for a 63 year old?
      The longest period away from here --- about 6 weeks, but never in one location, so I miss out on the month living somewhere else rule...
      I'm still counting on the places visited - 50 + , but not much more than that. I lose out by having been in only 15 States, and never having been in South America, Africa, or the Middle East.

          Since you cheat with separating England and Scotland, I will, too.

              Uhhh....would it be nit-picking to point out that Hawaii is a US state?
              Victoria, BC is a delightful place... I go to Vancouver a lot. On one trip, for no reason, I sprung for the $60 ferry ride to Victoria. That big hotel on the harbor and the general ambiance of the place was worth the trip.

                Funny how life works ! That "big hotel" on the Inner Harbour in Victoria is the Empress Hotel, one of the magnificent big hotels that the Canadian Pacific Railroad built across Canada a century ago. And that is why I was lucky enough to have been born and lived my whole life here.
                When I my Dad was young, his first job was with the CPR, working at the Banff Springs Hotel. He worked for the CPR for several years, and was transferred to various Hotels in Canada, until finally being transferred to Victoria to work at the Empress Hotel in the late 1930's. When Dad and Mom arrived here, they knew they were home. It's a tough place to leave

                      I got up to 96; 48 states + DC, most of the Canadian provinces, and most of Europe.

                      I kick myself for being at the northern most tip of Yellowstone and not driving the extra six miles north in the dead of night to get to Montana. That was 25 years ago this fall, and I have little reason to go there except for this very purpose.

                        Not meaning to hijack the thread. But I think it is cool, lonewolf, that you have stayed in those beautiful resorts, both of which my Dad worked at during the 1920's and 1930's. I hope that the plumbing and heating worked, as Dad was getting his "ticket" in those areas, at that time.
                        That gorgeous blue-green colour is typical of the lakes and streams up in the Rockies there, as the glacial melt seems to still be carrying lots of interesting colours down, from these fairly "new" mountains. And yes, cold, to be sure, even in the summer.
                        By the way, CPR, not CNR.....but that's a whole different story, for another time. Google up the great Railway Hotels of Canada, and there is a lot of fascinating stuff, if you are interested in history, geography, architecture, etc...

                            I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, USA

                            Here's my list of places I have visited so far ranked in order of how much I enjoyed visiting the place, with the most enjoyable ones at the top and the least enjoyable at the bottom:

                            1. Kauai

                            2. Maui

                            3. Switzerland

                            4. Oahu

                            5. Germany

                            6. France

                            7. Italy

                            8. Bryce Canyon, Utah

                            9. Banff

                            10. Las vegas

                            11. New York

                            12. Cancun

                            13. Florida

                            14. Egypt

                            15. Israel

                            16. Washington D.C.

                            17. San Francisco

                            18. San Diego

                            19. Vancouver

                            20. Eugene

                            21. Phoenix

                            22. Tucson

                            I would say that I liked numbers 1 through 6 considerably better than Los Angeles, and that numbers 7 through 20 were all very nice places, but, not places I would prefer over Los Angeles, in terms of living there permanently. 21 and 22 are the only two places that I've been to so far that I just plain didn't like.

                            The place I am most badly wanting to visit next is Japan. I think I will like it very much over there. I love everything Japanese. I love Japanese women, Japanese food, Japanese culture, Japanese architecture, Japanese landscape/scenery, pretty much everything Japanese that I have been exposed to so far in the U.S. I have loved, so, I really really really wanna go over there ASAP to see what it's like in person.
