[quote=""Misfit""]St. Andrews, Scotland, learning to play golf. My goodness, I just googled images of the city. Can I go right now?[/quote]

Come and visit, stay with us we live nearby! It's just a town rather than a city, but it is very pretty. And there are plenty of castles in the area too :)

I'm in a nunnery in 17th century France, as well as 16th century Venice.

12th century England, Westeros, and 12th century England.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

On an island about 850 miles from Montreal in the present day, and also still in 12th century Shropshire.

Just about to leave Canada, and now also in a debtors' prison in early 18th century London - it's not very nice at all!

England 1174. Heroine has just drawn a red heart with a + in the castle window to let the hero know she loves him. Oh well. This is an 1174 with ladies in coaches and in London there are masked balls and summer soirees :p ;)

In Paris (France, not Texas). It’s 1960. US pilot Gary Powers has just been shot down and Khrouchtchev has walked out of the Paris Peace Talks. An interesting period to be in, just before the better known ‘60s that really began in 1964 with bell-bottom pants, long hair and drugs-sex-and-rock-and-roll.
