I live about 500 miles from where I was born. I moved to a much less populated area, where I had a lot of family, when my children were small.
It has turned out to be a very good decision, I love this little rural town, and the people who live here.
My children went to school, and were raised to adulthood here. The schools were great, and the sense of community is priceless.
Two of my daughters left, but moved back with their husbands, to raise their own families here.
One of my daughters attends college in the city where I was born, so I have a great reason to spend some time there, too. :)
Thanks for your question.

I live in the town I was born in but not the town I grew up in. The hospital I was born in is about 3 miles away from my home. The town I lived in as a child does not have a hospital. I live around 10 miles away from the town I grew up in but I still like to bike to the provincial park that I biked to when I was young. It just takes almost an extra hour to get there.

According to Google Maps the distance between my current home in Tucson, AZ and the address where my parents lived in Rochester, NY when I was born is 2,315 miles by car.

However, when I visit relatives back home I usually fly and my frequent flyer account is usually credited with 2,500 miles each way.

According to Google Maps, by the fastest route, I currently live 204 miles from the town where I was born, grew up and where my parents still call home. I manage to get back there once or twice a year, sometimes more these days. In the past, especially while I was Active Duty Army, I lived a lot further away.

I live a mere five miles from where I was born.

Londoners tend not to move far from home - anything beyond the bounds of the London underground map is beyond our comprehension. Fortunately, the underground reaches the airport otherwise we couldn't cope with going abroad at all :-)
