I can't afford to travel like I would love to do so can you all please tell me where you are from and something interesting about your city/state/town/country? What do you love about it? Is there something you have in your area that can't be found in other places? What's the weather like most of the time? Any interesting facts or places to see? Thanks!

I live in Charleston, the State Capitol of the "Mountain State", West Virginia. Though I was born and raised in Camden, NJ (outside Philadelphia, PA), I came here to retire. The people are friendly, the state is very pretty with all the trees and hills all year long, and of course I met my husband here, a native born "Mountaineer" whose family have been here since the state was part of Virginia. Charleston is the perfect way to enjoy a day, weekend getaway or extended adventure. Charleston is nestled in the lush Appalachian Mountains, with the Kanawha River running down the middle of the city, the perfect setting to enjoy history, culture, entertainment and fun. Plus, don’t forget all the great shopping, restaurants, and hotels and festivals. Just a short drive away is where outdoor adventure lies, just waiting to be conquered — white water rafting, hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding and so much more. BUT PLEASE! Do NOT confuse us with Charleston, South Carolina! More info at: http://cityofcharleston.org and http://www.charlestonwv.com

Do you know.. when people ask me where I would like to live or visit, the first place that I say is Virginia. Fall is my favorite season and I've always seen gorgeous pictures of Virginia in the fall with the trees changing colors and all the towns look so quaint, warm and cozy. It sounds beautiful and like it has alot to offer people. So I booked my ticket, are you ready for a visitor? *hah* :] Just kidding! Thank you so much for sharing and all the wonderful information. I will check out that site and maybe one day I will make it to Charleston! It can't be that far from California, right? :]

I have never heard of the Banaue Rice Terraces but I will look them up. It sounds beautiful. I have friends who are from the Philippines and I have always had an interest in visiting there. Is it true that the families there use to bury their gold in their yard? My friends tell me this but I think they are joking with me :) Thank you for sharing!

I always picture India as a country with many rich colors and people. Meaning very interesting with so much culture and customs. India seems so vivid and bright and colorful. I would love to visit there as well. I wish you would tell me something that makes it the best place in the world. I know nothing about India. Thanks for sharing though!

I live in a very rural area of northeastern Pennsylvania. The entire town that I live in has three roads, two churches and one gas station, nothing else but houses. There is even a farm located right around the corner from me. We are about 45 minutes from any major shopping area and have a population of maybe 200. Amish families live nearby so I often see them going by with their horses and buggies. I travel on dirt (gravel) roads quite frequently. Deer will run through my yard (in fact I almost hit one with my car just pulling into my driveway!) Right now the ground is covered with snow and the temperature is 18 degrees F. It was much colder earlier in the week with wind chills as low as -15 F. The smell of woodsmoke is in the air and the wind is howling around the house.

Well, I live in North Dakota now but I will tell you about my hometown in Missouri, it's more interesting. ;) I grew up in a small town in SW Missouri. The population of Marionville is only about 2000. The weather is hot and humid during the summer. It doesn't get too cold in the winter but they do get a lot of snow and ice. There are actually white squirrels in Marionville. I'm not sure why. They don't travel very far outside of Marionville. They have been living there for a long time, though. People drive many many miles just to see them. Marionville is located about 25 miles SW of Springfield, MO. Springfield is the third largest city in Missouri and has many things to do. Marionville is also only about 40 miles from Branson, Missouri. I'm sure you've heard of it. ;) I guess what I miss most about Marionville is being able to travel such a short distance and find something to do. In North Dakota, our big city, Fargo, has about 1/3 of the population of Springfield, MO. And Fargo is over 4 hours from where I live. Marionville isn't somewhere I would reccomend visiting just for fun, after all there is only 2000 people in the whole town, but if you are in Branson, and have never seen a white squirrel, it might be something you want to check out.
