I don't understand how the last few questions fitted "how old were you when ..." ?
But my three favourite places?
Edinburgh - I keep coming back, so it must be the best.
Ko Pha-Ngan, off the east coast of Thailand. Beautiful, hot and deserted.
Cesky Krumlov, in southern Bohemia. Fantastic hippy hangout, with soft drugs, canoeing, climbing and ice hockey.
