How many times have you moved?


I just realized this morning that I haven’t lived more than 9 years in the same place. Yes, I have lived most of my life in Venezuela, but never for more than 9 years in a row. Lets look at the break down, shall we?

2 y San Tome, Anzoategui, Vzla (1 home)
1 y Caracas, Venezuela (1 home)
4 m Washington, DC, USA (1 home)
4 y Davis, CA, USA (3 homes)
3 y Cardon, Falcon, Vzla (4 homes)
4 y Caracas, Vzla (2 homes)
1 y Irvine, CA, USA (2 homes)
9 y Caracas, Vzla (with two 2-3 m intervals in London and Marlow, England, in 1990 and in 1996) (5 homes)
3 y New York, NY, USA (1 home)
4 y Caracas, Vzla (1 home)
Almost 3 y and counting New York, NY, USA (2 homes)

I have lived in 24 different homes (moves within the same town/city), and have had 10 major moves and relocations so far. Hmm, is anyone thinking nomad here?
