Fargo, North Dakota

I'm originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

When I moved to North Dakota I wasn't expecting much but after living here for almost four years (wow - time flies) I can tell you North Dakota has a lot to offer, especially if you appreciate large sculptures and outdoor activities.

I am from surprise! Las Vegas! Home of the most powerful light on the planet (Luxor), world's largest outdoor display (Fremont Street Experience), the most hotel rooms on the planet (131,00, 170,000in 2010) and home to 15 out of 20 of the world's largest hotels. Over 40 million visitors last year can't be wrong! Our motto: If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing! Sums up Vegas in one sentence.

Send me a PM if you need help with your Vegas stay.

Hi everyone!

I live in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland. It's the third largest city in Ireland (population about 70,000ish). It rains a LOT but it's a great town!

During the summer, Galway is full of tourists, street performers, street markets and festivals. During the winter it is full of students so the pubs and clubs are buzzing every night of the week.

The most traditional local food would probably be seafood, and there are a lot of nice seafood restaurants. There is a locally brewed beer called Galway Hooker (the boat, not the street walker!). I haven't tried it myself but I think it's a weissbeir and it's only sold in certain pubs.

From: Horsham, West Sussex, England

Local food: good country produce, pheasant, rabbit and what have you. Also, the local country produce shop sells the most incredible cheeses.

Beer: Horsham has 3 breweries, 20 in Sussex. I quite like Hepworth and Arundel Ales.

Horsham is a medium sized town placed conveniently between London and Brighton. It is close to Gatwick airport and has regular rail-links up to London. Horsham was the second best place to live in Britain in 2006 and was relegated to 8th best in 2007 according to Channel Four.

Horsham has a macabre history. Gaol Green was the host of some of the largest hanging fairs in the country, over 200 people were hung each Saturday morning for many years. Horsham was also the last place in Britain where someone sold their wife and the last place someone was crushed to death. Horsham has existed since early Anglo-Saxon times and was also the site where the first Iguanadon fossils were found. Depsite Horshams grim history (or perhaps because of it) it has a large concentration of churches. St. Mary's is a beautiful old church, along with Holy Trinity and St. Leonards, which is currently falling down so were attempting to restore it.

I love my town, and I hate our MP...One of the disadvantages of living in the south - stupid conservatives...

My dad and his family are from Hull, which recieves a lot of bad credit but infact Hull has a fascinating history and there are many interesting places to go.

My mum and her family are from Ireland. My grandad from Dublin, my nanny from Belfast. Family renunions are a fun time as you might guess...
