100K CONTEST - Where are you from?

Replay Poker is home to players from all over the world!

This month, we’d like to know: Where are you from?

This question is up for interpretation! Whether it’s your hometown, where you are now, or simply a place you feel a close connection to, we’d love to hear it. Tell us a little bit about it!

One question we get from many of our players is how to connect with others in their country. This is a feature we’re thinking over, but in the meantime, please feel free to use this thread to connect and chat with others – whether you have a place in common, or if it’s somewhere you’d like to know more about!

Five random players will receive 100,000 chips at the end of the month – and we’ll double the winners if we get more than 100 unique replies!

Only your first response counts, but we encourage conversation. Best of luck, and happy sharing!

I’ll start: I’m originally from Georgia in the US, and now live in Oregon. Opposite sides of the country, but both such beautiful areas!

I’m from Rhode Island, USA and after traveling the world in the Marine Corps came home and settled here. Rhode Island is the smallest state in the country but with the biggest heart :heart: and is called “ the ocean state” because we have over 400 miles of coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. New England is a beautiful place to live with 4 seasons. Come visit ! :blush:

i live in northern Germany right on the Beach. The wonderful View is relaxing, just let ur soul dangle. There ´re a lot of Tourists here in the Summer, which is good for the city, but rather stressful for us Residents. Nevertheless, life is very good here and there is a great Neighborhood. Incidentally, u can also meet many international celebrities here. See u

I’m from Northern California, very near Oregon. When we are mad at our state of California, we say we’re from Baja, Oregon. (A little local joke.) The Pacific Ocean is the western boundary of our county, the state of Oregon is the northern boundary, and some of the tallest trees in the world form our county’s eastern boundary. In case of tsunami, we’ll be climbing those trees.

I’m originally from Antares 5, but my home world is so bright, it was costing me a fortune in sunglasses. Earth is far dimmer, so here I am, studying primates

I’m Canadian, and a Bluenoser. My family fished and farmed up until after WWI, then my grandfather fiddled at dances, and paid his way through college in the 20s. We are now city folk, but I long to be ‘Down Home’, where I spent much of my childhood and youth.

Some of the beaches I’ve seen in your state, have tons of agates. I’d love to do some rock hunting. We have quartz and amethyst, but aggies are rare finds. :slight_smile:
