As my uncle always says: Only boring people get bored.

And i couldn't agree more. If you're bored, do something about it!!

Good point. I've not travelled around my home too, and until I do, I dunno what I am missing out.

Where i am from is very boring. It's a small town on the NE coast of Scotland and i hated it. THere is nothing to do there you have to go elsehwere to even go to the cinema. I know live in the city and it has more to do but i don't like living there at all. It's really depressing!

I love Montreal, but I abhor the little suburb I grew up in. I went back over the weekend to visit my parents, and on the bus ride there my boyfriend was asking me what I thought of the place. "It's the inbred capital of the city," is what I think of it. Blech! Blech!

Maybe I just hate suburbia, where all the houses are the same and everyone follows the same shedule. Certainly not where you'd find spontaneity of any kind...

Where we live is considered really boring - but we live in the country. The nearest towns have ~400 people each. Not too many leave home so the gene pool is ever shrinking. Everyone knows everyone else and their business. If you weren't born here, you are called a "newcomer" for the rest of your life. (We're newcomers.) Our house is surrounded by corn on 4 sides but we have a lot of wildlife too. Chicago, Illinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin are 2 hours, while Madison, Wisconsin is 1.25 hours away. There really are lots of interesting little things around us, such as a Mustard Museum, Gem Museum, Circus World Museum, House on the Rock, and several small breweries.

maybe boring was the wrong word, I don't mean to say I'm bored, sitting around lamenting at nothing to do, just really wondered if people did their home nations before the rest of the world... ;)

As for Norfolk, there is some good roads up there, I'm a biker and was up at Larling last year for a bike weekender with some track action at Snetterton which was aceeeee!
