FUCK.

The only way out is to wear really really ugly clothes, like boat sized Nike sneakers, baggy jeans, a short sleeve button up and a fedora, but I would never lower myself like that. My plan fails.

Katrineholm, Sweden









My town was recently ranked as Sweden's most boring by one of the major newspapers.

Haha, you don't know where it is?

It's located in Sörmland. Pretty close to Norrköping.

At least I've been to Oskarshamn, I remember stopping there for hot dogs when my family was on vacation in '99 or something.

Hmm no I don't think I've ever been there. It's one of those names you've heard a thousand times but you don't really know anything about them. Like Täby, Lomma, Huddinge, Västerås etc.

Haha, you stopped at a gas station or something?

Ok, pretty much the only reason it exists is because it's a railway junction. Also Nils Holgersson landed here on his goose.

Yeah, something like that. I remember we were on our way to Öland. It thundered and we were looking for a place to stay over the night.

So here's Gisborne, New Zealand. Would hardly qualify as a city in any other country.



Downtown Gizzie


This is the Waterfront



I'm from a place there called Wainui. It prides itself on being a low-rent California



There are loads of Lakes, rivers, and waterfalls about 5 minutes away from the city centre.

Totally worth it if you can manage the 6-7 flights it takes to get there Razz.

If you were to visit me now, you'd arrive in a slightly less impressive Norwalk, Connecticut. But I'm pleased you like it.

Here are some photos of Chesapeake, VA, where I currently live. I didn't take any of these photos though, I just got them off of Google.

This is the sun setting over Oak Grove Lake near my house.


There are a lot of woods around here, and this one picture from the backwoods of Chesapeake near the Great Dismal Swamp.


This is a view of the Intercoastal Waterway that runs down most of the Eastern Seaboard.


Before I lived here, I lived in Santa Cruz, CA. Here is a great photo I found of the lighthouse and the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean not far from where I lived. Beautiful!


Just one more. These are the incredible Redwood trees just north of Santa Cruz.

I think I would love it in Chesapeake! It looks very relaxing and I love the woods!

Cool thread! Hey Harbortown, i thought you were living in California??


Here's a couple of pics of my city.

Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada (about 10 miles North of Montreal.)
100.000 inhabitants.
Founded by André Daulier-Deslandes in 1673



The old part of town.













Winter...


Terrebonne with Montreal in the background


And here's a view of Montreal. A city i've lived in for 7 years.

That looks like a cool place, dude.

Yeah normally I live in Santa Barbara, California, which is where I go to college, but now I'm home for winter break.
I guess I could upload some pictures of Santa Barbara too!
