In my 34 years I have lived in:
1. Born in a small town in CT where I lived for 18 months
2. Moved to another small town in CT for the next 16.5 years of my life, split between 2 houses.
3. Biddeford, Maine for 2 years
4. Portland Maine for 4 years, the first year in a dorm, the next 3 in an apartment
5. Shijiazhuang, China for 22 months
6. Moved back to the small town from #2 on my list for 8 months
7. Washington DC for 2 years and 9 months
8. Another small town in CT for a month
9. Bogota Colombia for 2 years, split between 3 apartments
10. Small town in Colombia near Bogota for a year
11. Guatemala City for a year
12. Monterrey, Mexico for a year
13. Now, I will be moving back to another small town in Colombia in a month.

Wow, that is a lot of places!

I have lived in the Washington DC metro area most of my life.

I thought about moving to the New York City area, but the high COL and property taxes discouraged me. Also, I heard too many stories about having to work crazy hours.

I am not inclined to move anywhere else right now, because I would have to take a huge salary cut and start all over again in my career. Maybe after I retire, who knows?

I can't even count the houses and have a hard time with the towns, and may leave out a state or two for that matter, but...

Age 57
Louisiana
Texas
California
Tennessee
Japan
Ohio
Virginia
North Carolina
Alabama
Georgia
Maryland
Texas again
Maryland again
Germany
Texas again

Yep, pretty sure I've left something out but oh well. This definitely doesn't include travels and vacations and business trips.

this depends on the definition of "lived".
do several temporary assignments count?
how does a year-long-RV trip count?
