Were you born in the country where you now live?

What country were you born in? Whatever, or wherever, the country is, do you still live there?

Now, the majority of our readers (think 96 percent) are located in either the U.S. (93 percent) and Canada (3 percent). Others of you are scattered around the world – some in South Korea, England, Australia, Mexico… Last year we even had someone write in who was living in Antarctica at the time (are you still there?). Something tells us that person wasn’t born in Antarctica. Actually, has anyone ever been born in Antarctica? Now we want to know…

Anyway, please vote in the poll below and leave a comment telling us what country you were born in (we especially want to know if it’s outside the U.S. or Canada). Thanks!

Yes, the USA. Although, between being a military brat and being in the military myself, I’ve spent almost half my life in other countries.

Kind of a trick ANSWER this time.
I was born in California, but I moved to the country of Texas as quick as I could.

I have worked parts of many years in Antarctica and yes, Diane, I read RV travel some of that time, though never wrote to you. There have been somewhere around a dozen births in Antarctica because in the 70’s Chile and Argentina had set up colonies/stations there to try to support their territorial claims.

Thanks for the interesting info, Jack. Wow! You get around! From Enumclaw to Antarctica — and lots of places in between. Just so you don’t forget about RVtravel.com while you’re roaming the world. Take care, and have a beautiful, sunny day. 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Well, me yes, wife no. I answered yes because I filled out the poll, but if you ask the same question in a few years then I will be no and she will be yes.

2 full passports later, I’m sure glad my parents, grandparents are Americans. I’ve been to some very sad places.

After 25 years in metro Washington, DC, we moved to the property on which I grew up. Our house is 1/2 mile from my parents’ home (yes, a large property).

My geneology certainly includes immigrants, but the nearest one is four generations ago. My maternal grandmother’s maternal grandmother came from Ireland approximately when the potato famine of 1879 (not the Great Potato Famine of 1845-1852) occurred.
