Also, why are you living where you are now? You have to becuaes of your job, you chose to because you like that part of the country? Family?
For me, and no-one has to name any geographical places if they don't want to but I will.
Born in Irvine in Scotland, now live just outside Exeter in Devon.
Brother is in Sheffield, Mum in Leominster, other family in and around London.
As far as you can get, I lived in Oz for 2 years.
Living here now really because I used to come to Devon and Cornwall as a kid on holiday and fell in love with it. I always wanted to live on a farm down here and have been for over 10 years. I went to uni down here in Plymouth and when I came back from Oz I met my husband, his family are Cornish through and through. Both my kids were born here and we count ourselves very much as Devonian.
I love the coast, the smell and feel of the sea air. I also love Dartmoor.
About ~180 miles from where I was born.
~150 miles from my family
About ~180 miles
I've relocated Oop North because of a man

I heard that the cake is better up there
I'm about 50 miles from where I was born (Gravesend), but I only lived there until I was 5 so I have no attachment to it and don't regard it as home. Real home where my family are is 170 miles (North Shropshire), but there's only my mother left now - my sister lives in Japan! Why am I living here now (Windsor)? When I met my now wife I'd been working away from home in and around London for 7 of the previous 10 years, so when she decided to move to the UK it didn't make any sense for her to live in Shropshire when I was actually seldom there, so I sold up and we set up home down here.
I like cake
I was born in Essex (and proud of it!) and relocated for university, which at the time was about 4 hours drive away but the roads have improved since then. I chose that uni as it was too far for me to travel back to my parents every weekend and I needed to escape them.
Then I met Hubby and relocated to this part of the country for his work. I'm still about 3.5 hours away from my family.
Now I am looking to relocate again, but have no idea where I will be going.
About 3 miles from where I was born.
There because of family, who are all around that location, and work.
Have also lived two years on nearly the other side of the world, Oz, and in a few other places thousands of miles away. Spent many consecutive years away from home, but two different jobs have brought me back, and happily.
I live about 60 miles from where I was born and brought up, where my mother still lives.
Close enough to visit when I want to, but far enough to prevent 'popping in'.
I moved here (Essex) when I first got married - we could buy a house here for a reasonable amount of money. I've now lived here for twenty seven years, but I'm on my third home here, and looking to move again this year.
I guess about 100 odd miles from where I was born (Leicester), and nearest family are 30 miles away in Lancashire (the rest being in the Lakes, Birmingham and London). Furthest away I've lived is France and I would emigrate like a shot, given the chance, but husband is a Shropshire Mon, born and bred and all his family are still there, so I think I know where our next move will be to...

I live in East Sussex. Apart from being born in Devon I have lived in Sussex (East and West) all my life. I do like the SE but would choose to live in a different part of the SE if I could afford to. This place is pretty grim.
I was born in Islington so I am very close to it just now.
I was brought up (4-14) in Newton Abbott in Devon.
My family are my sister in York and my brother (probably) about 5 miles away from where I now live in Essex. I've been in Essex since 14 so it is where I have been longest.
Living in Essex is most convenient for my job as the number of academic institutions is so high. I would move away but only for a permanent job I really wanted.
1000 miles. Not too far and not too close at the same time, you'll get there in 24h and far enough for the family not to interfere.
I live 125 miles from where I was born (Nottingham)
Furthest place I lived from where I was born was Edinburgh. Dragged back down south by my employer.
Now live in a place which is excellent for trains into London. No longer work in London so have no reason to live here (not even to use one of the excellent trains into London). Why am I here? Feeling a bit sad now.
I'm 180 miles from where I was born and brought up.
I also relocated (down South) because of a man
I was born in Wrexham but moved to Dorset when I was 2. Although it was never planned I've just never really moved away. I always manged to find a job that was local and have been in the bright lights of Bournemouth for the last 7 years.
Came down south to and stayed with a friend as I'd lost my job up north. Then met OH just as I was contemplating leaving as I hated it down here. Been in Surrey for over 20 years. Still doesn't feel like home after all this time - every time I go back up north I feel like I've gone home but my children are southerners so I reckon I'm here for a good while yet !!
Surrey. Roughly 380km from where i'm living
Some are in Surrey, Hampshire and Yorkshire. Others are spread across the globe (Ireland/Oz etc). My mum and dad are still in Surrey in the same house that I grew up in. I grew up in Surrey (near Weybridge) and went to university in Egham - so not too far from home.
Phew.... good question I'm living in Belgium and not really by choice! It's the same story as many on here: met a man, moved there, stayed there. If I had my way i'd still be in Germany... although I admit I like being "only" 5 hours from my parents (instead of 10).
For some reason - living in Germany just "suited" me and where I was the most happiest. Don't get me wrong - I love my husband and made the active decision to move here but it's just a place to live - I don't love the area like I did in Germany. Another reason is that my husband's very much the homebird and wouldnt move too far from his family (we live 5 minutes from his sister, 20 minutes from his grandparents etc).
I'm also grateful for my job - as it means that I get to travel A LOT and most of it back to Germany (Koeln/Frankfurt etc), so i'm not really "missing" out.
Currently 400km, furthest was 5500 km.
Always been for a job.
