Hmmm..."Elsewhere" covers all of Europe, most of Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, and Antarctica.

I live in cold and rainy/snowy Sweden... Except my heart and soul though, which found their home a wee bit north of Stirling.

Do you mean this in the sense "cò às a tha thu?" (where do you originate from?) or "cò tha thu a' fuireach?" (where are you staying?)?

There's a map in the general discussion section detailing where a lot of us are from, but maybe the names are different.

I'm not really from Tralfamadore you see. I'm from the picturesque small town of Svelvik situated north in the county of Vestfold, in the south eastern part of Norway. I moved to Bergen on the west coast quite a few years ago.

It seems the Nigerians are just 'lurkers' but glad to have them on board in any case. I'm for stating at least the country an individual is from, it helps when thye ask specific questions.

I don't think there are 5 ppl from Nigeria here but how many registered users does this forum have? 2500+?

It is possible. I think we have people who might be half Nigerian and half English but they identify more with their Nigerian side than their english side so they select Nigeria.

Heisan Ann-Helen :D Bergen er ikke så verst, men jeg savner en skikkelig varm Vestfoldsommer; reker og hvitvin på skjæra, bade i sjøen uten å få koldbrann etc. ........ Men jeg savner ikke vinteren :wink:
