One of the interesting features of  Wordpress is a list of countries from whence one’s blog visitors log in.  I find it quite fascinating that in the last 30 days, visitors have dropped by from 51 countries!

So if you have come from Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, France, Finland, Greece, Norway, Brazil, Mexico, Sweden, Philippines, Poland, South Africa, New Zealand, Portugal, Russian Federation, Argentina, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Iceland, India, Switzerland, Slovakia, Romania, Macedonia, Sri Lanka, Hungary, Italy, Turkey, Czech Republic, Ireland, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Ukraine, Bahrain, Lebanon, Peru, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Dominican Republic, Bulgaria, Malaysia, Netherlands, Spain, Bangladesh, Albania, Myanmar or any other country, thanks for stopping in!  I am most glad to have your company!

I’d be delighted to hear from you, please feel free to leave a note in the comment section and tell me something wonderful about the town or country where you live.

I’ll start:  What’s wonderful about living in the Shuswap region of BC, Canada,  are the sparkling lakes, and the opportunity to be in a forest in a few minutes walk.

In this map the darker the colour, the most hits per country- from 578 for Canada to 1 from Myanmar.

    What I love about living in Norway is that sins we are a smal country we are always standing up for our. Country and showing the world a great time, when eyes are directed to us. From Eurovision song contest finals, sporting avents and so on.
    And how we all held hands and helped Each other after July 22.

      The world held your hands July 22, 2011. I remember being so shocked because it just didn’t seem to fit the national character at all! I have met a few Norwegians, hosting them here in Canada. I have been to Finland, Sweden, and Denmark. I think we need to visit Norway and Iceland, so we have seen all of Scandinavia. Norway looks very beautiful.

    What’s wonderful about Lebanon is that you can experience different seasons here at once. Feel like swimming? The beaches are almost always open and warm. Or do you fancy skiing? The mountain tops here are almost always covered with snow. =]

    I also like that it’s called the Paris of the Middle East, haha.

    I live in Whitehorse, Yukon. I love the quality of the light here. We are thinking of retiring to Salmon Arm in a year or two, actually. 🙂

      I lived in Finland, so I think I know what you mean. Especially in the winter, the stars/moon on snow is ‘light’ in a way that is hard to explain to someone who has never seen it. Salmon Arm is a pretty great place to retire to, though as a teacher in a district with declining enrolment, I’d encourage to bring some grandchildren with you! lol
