This question is marked "community wiki".

I got curious about where we all are- I know we now have a map here on IQ with dots, but I thought it would be fun to see specifically what countries we all hail from...

You can be as general as you like (and please don't say Earth...What would be the point of that?) For example, you could say Northern Scotland, or be more specific (as I am) and say, I hail from Berwick, Pennsylvania, which is the sister city to Berwick-on-Tweed, England...You may not want to say much more than your country- that's fine. You may also want to include other places you have lived. I grew up as a suburban Chicagoan, and thus hail from Illinois, USA where my roots are.

Call it a survey to connect our screen names to a location. You may also want to include your time zone, + or - Greenwich Mean Time. I believe Berwick is -5, which is EDT (for now) in the USA.

Come on! Join the survey!!!

Love, Jai

I live in beautiful Racine Wisconsin, USA. Lake Michigan beaches and the harbor are only a walking distance away, lovely parks all around. Racine has under 90,000 people and has a small town feel, which is nice, but Chicago and Milwaukee are less than an hour away for activities, cultural events, sporting events and so forth. This is a nice location and I love it.

Hi. Am liking this. a chance to know where the rest of my IQ family hail from. Am from A wonderful town called Embu in Kenya, on the eastern side of Africa. Thanks Jai for this wonderful idea. Am a great fan of your answers. I hope Stingray will also tell us where he hails from. Saying he is hanging on a rock somewhere in the skies is abit too sketchy. Pleeeeease.

Hi, I thought I answered this one a few hours ago, at least IQ told me I did when I clicked the submit answer button, but then I also had to sign it so I bet it did not take the answer. So here it is again:

I live in Jacksonville, NC since 1995. I was born in Poland, my parents were political fugitives because they were Germans even though my father has a polish first and last name, from a time when that part of Poland was still part of Germany under the German Emperor until WW2. At that time my father owned a coal freighter (ship) going up and down the River "ODER". I was born on his ship between ports.

So when I was 6 weeks old, they escaped with me and my 8 year old sister during the night and were hiding by day, to Berlin, Germany where I lived until I was 27 years old, got married to someone in the US Army and moved to the US in 1977. Because of lots of military moves we lived in several states, always southern, because I wanted to have decent winters. Except for my daughter, all my blood relatives still live in the former East Germany from my mother's side and also Poland, from my father's side. My mother and siblings all still live in Berlin, Germany, though.

Would love to end up living somewhere on the English coast or maybe even Scotland within the next couple of years or so. Would be an interesting adventure but its Manchester for the moment. :)

Welcome! I always wonder if there are more users here from the UK or the US or from Europe or North America. Enjoy!

(14 Sep '13, 02:34) ele

Yes, thanks ele. To be fair, I sometimes look at the 'Questions Being Read Now' bar on the right hand side of the screen as possibly a decent quick indication of where most visitors are from and it does seem to suggest that a fair few visitors are from UK or North America. Unsurprising, I suppose with this being an English language web site.

(14 Sep '13, 06:46) colino green

When I said users, I meant members. Yes, feedjit live shows visitors from all over the world. It's very easy to translate this site. Just look to the top right corner of any page & select language.

I'm on the little island of Singapore, in the middle of Southeast Asia. When I arrived here few years back, I was looking forward to meeting all sort of gurus and make many fascinating experiences. Unfortunately, you can't even imagine how this place lacks "spiritualness"... it's all about money, money and nothing else (well, a part from superstition). Quite sad. There are some Westerners trying to bring in some good stuff, but it's all very tentative. My little town in Europe is way more "evolved" and I can't understand how it's possible. This town is made of 5 million people from all over the world, and the Chinese and Indian heritage is quite strong and visible. But the spiritual side seems to have just evaporated.

Anyway, since the real journey is within, my rant doesn't really matter :)
