Im from a small city called Trondheim in mid Norway. Our local beer is E. C Dahls and Munkholm. As for the local food, I cant think of any of the moment. The city pride is the football-team called Rosenborg. Soon to come is Norways national day or 'syttende mai' (May 17th). This day everybody gathers in the street to march together to celebrate the Constitution Day. Loads of things going on and on this day we are "allowed" to eat all the ice-cream we can...without any restrictions!

I hate that question!

Ok, I'm born in a tiny place called Gelli [pronounced Gech-lee, not Jelly], in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales. But haven't lived there since i was 4weeks old, and haven't been back since i was 12, when i didn't reallty care too much iff the beer was local (whatever we could get hold of was fine with us )

Now I live (as much as I live anywhere) in a small town in SE Sweden called Kristianstad. The local food specialities are mostly based around Herring and Eel, though Sweden in general also includues things like Reindeer and Moose (both of which are gorgeous), and there is a big local Ice Cream production. Swedish beer is fairly average at best, though I would say Mariestad is probably one of the best if you have to drink one. BUT i do live within sight of the Worlds largets Vodka factory (Absolut)

Soon to come is Norways national day or 'syttende mai' (May 17th)

It's great isn't it? And yup, I'll be in Trondheim

My first reply would be, originally I'm from Berlin/Germany.
A city coined by history, full of movement and atmosphere;chaotic in its own charming way. Every time I return (just recently) it has changed in certain ways but the traditional food and drink always remains the same. If you come here and you are not a vegetarian, you have to try 'Currywurst', a chopped-up sausage with lots of ketchup mixed with curry spice (sounds strange, apparently it's very yummy) and drink Berliner Weisse, which is a Pilsener beer with raspberry or woodruff syrup. Again a rare speciality, however something you shouldn't miss out on when you visit Berlin.

Sydney, Australia.

A reasonable place, but just too far from anywhere.

I'm from Toronto, Canada which is quite possibly the most multicultural place on the planet. Just to give you an example: I take a streetcar to get to school and on the way I pass by Little India and my school is right in the center of China Town. About 65% of the people who go to my school are of Asian origin. Which means, I can go eat Chinese food for lunch or grab a bubble tea after school. You can visit the CN Tower or go enjoy a day at the amusement park Canada's Paramount Wonderland. As for the types of local beer, I cannot comment, since I am not old enough to drink. Hockey is a popular sport here, but my favourite is soccer. This season is the first that Toronto FC will be playing and it has sparked quite excitement. Toronto FC is the first professional soccer team in Canada. These are some of the things you should try to enjoy when in Toronto.:)

I was born in Kessel in the Netherlands (the one in Limburg, there are more), and now live in Arcen in the same region. It's close to the German border, which is always good for learning another language in an easy way.

The local beer is Hertog Jan. (which you can also find in the rest of the Netherlands. not as big as Heineken or Amstel, but if you look for it you can find it. I have no idea how it tastes as I don't drink beer.)

The best local food is Ice-cream, we have one of the best Ice cream shops in the Netherlands.

I am from West Hempstead, New York, USA. It is located on Long Island, which is a very diverse and densly populated suburb of New York City. It is wonderful because there are lots of options in terms of food and entertainment to satisfy everyone. It's about a 15 minute car ride to the beach and a 30 minute train ride into New York City. You should come visit :)
