Coral Springs, FL.

Not much to do around here. However, I live less than a mile away from the beautiful Florida Everglades, the only subtropical preserve in North America (where I practice my photography). And I am a 15 minute drive from the beach (thank god I'm far enough away from Miami that the beach is nice and quiet, perfect for 'sunrise photography'). I would say that if your breifly travelling through Florida then Coral Springs is not worth a stop. But if you were going to bum around South Florida for a while, then Coral Springs is a nice little town.

I live in Helensburgh - in Argyll. It's a small, Victorian seaside town on the north shore of the River Clyde. It's a quiet, sleepy little town - with a nice shopping centre with small, individual shops (although the chain stores are trying to change that!) ... There are a couple of tourist spots to see - The Hill House, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh; some nice gardens in the area; a promenade .... some good eating spots. During the summer months, the Paddle Steamer Waverley calls in to Helensburgh and it's possible to sail "Doon the Watter" .... I've had some good nights out on the Waverley.

I particularly love the view down the Clyde when I'm driving back to Helensburgh - gets me every time!

I couldn't say Stockholm (Sweden) even though that's where I grew up and have lived most of my life. My family still lives there (my parents and my sisters and their families) but I don't think I ever will again... Simply because people there seem to think that the rest of Sweden (and sometimes the rest of the world) doesn't exist.

I don't really know where my hometown is! I really feel at home in Lund (Sweden too, obviously), where I have been living and studying the last 5 years - but since I finished my studies there recently and soon will go travelling, I feel a little rootless at the moment... I don't even know where I will live and what I will be doing when I get back!!! Exciting, isn't it?

smityville, new york, =( all we have is a regular house they made numerous bad movies about and hundreds of people flock here to find it for no reason all the time. heh but it was a great place to grow up as a kid, somewhere between being a small town and being surrounded by many towns. but i moved to fort lauderdale, fl, when i was 11. i hate the place but loved the people.(at least the ones i knew) so yea i got stuck with crap, but i figure its not where you come from, but more where youre goin.;)

Levin - definately not, move along now nothing to see here!

Wellington - which is what I consider home, more than worth a visit.. the Harbour on a beautiful sunny day is outstanding. Great Restaurants, Cafe's & Bars. Hurricanes Rugby Team

Stanhope, NJ - the gateway to Sussex County, NJ. Rural and proud of it. Of course, the city (NY) was about 45 minutes with no traffic and maybe an hour and a half with. Not a bad place to grow up, although, nowadays there's a lot of urban sprawl. Good people and good times, memories that last a lifetime!
