How far have you moved away?

Approx how many miles from where you were born do you live now?
And during you life how many homes have you lived in?

For me it's 40 miles and I have lived in 8 different homes (6 of those since I got married)

        I am about a  10 minute walk  from where I was actually born born, but have lived in a lot of different places including abroad. Couldn't even guess how many houses, but have been in my present home for just short or 30 years.

    I have always lived within around 20 miles of where I live about from a couple of years when at college, since leaving the parental home I have lived in 3 properties all within Leicestershire

    One reason I haven't travelled further afield is the difficulty finding accessible rental property

    I used to live in Wolverhampton. I now live in mid Wales. Not sure how many miles I have moved but I know it take 1 and an half hours to drive back to Wolverhampton. Until I moved to Wales I had never lived more than 5 miles from where I was born. I have moved house 6 times in 47 yrs.

    I've only moved once, and that was in August. I live aprox 8 miles from my previous home. About a 15 minute to 20 minute drive in good traffic

    I live around 200 miles away from where I was born. I've been attached to about 8 houses I think, in 4 locations. 

    Wow @DeliveryMoogle! What was it like living in Las Vegas?

    Hi @Iisathomas50 i live in Newtown. I would never have moved to Wales on my own. I was living with my parents when they decided to move to Wales and I couldn't afford to stay in Wolverhampton. I hated living here at first the pace was so slow compared to living in a city, I now love living here. I live on my own in a lovely old cottage. I have lived in Newtown for 16 years but it did take a long time to get used to the slower pace of life!

    I currently live about 8 miles from where I was born/grew up. 

    Lived there until I was 18. 

    Moved to Huddersfield for University. 

    Then back home. 

    Had my own place in the same town. 

    Tried Scotland for a bit when a work opportunity arose, got home sick badly. 

    Live where I live now. 

    Moving on Wednesday down the road basically.

    I moved about 10 miles as the crow flies...but 20 miles in a car, thanks geography haha!

    Can barely do a quarter of that distance now though.  My next move will have to be within around a mile radius.
