I lived in Ireland for most of my life, but I previously lived in the UK for a few years and now I live in the United States. I've been to lots of other countries though... including your home nation Elso! I went there for a wedding last year and it was absolutely beautiful.

I guess the question is how long do you have to stay somewhere for it to be considered living there? Does it have to be consecutive?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Just here in the Philippines. But I stayed in Cebu (still in the Philippines) for a year and they have a different dialect there.

That's a great question and I guess it varies but for the purpose of this post let's say at least a couple of months.

Great question! For me I suppose it's down to each person how long it takes to feel like you're living there. I've stayed and worked in dozens of cities and countries but only felt like I was actually at home and living in a few of them.

The best lechon... gawd... when I was there I had Cebu lechon whenever I wanted. My poor blood pressure...


If you had to have stayed long enough to feel at home, then the only other place I've ever called home was Colorado. If I had that year to do over again I absolutely would.
