Tricky question for some. Like you @Pelen I have moved around a bit.
So I answered based in where I live now.... ;)

I like how you broke up Europe into 7 'zones', and yet 'Asia' has just 1.
It's a big place 🤫

But given the comparatively narrow cross section of the Global community on here you're right I guess. Just teasing :)

Mainly an agricultural area with a lot of apples, the majority of the world's hops (Germans and Czechs will tell you theirs are superior and I will not be undiplomatic and argue), wine grapes (Californians will argue theirs are superior and again I stand above the fray), juice grapes, mint (for oil) and hay.

Yes, there are wheat, barley, and potatoes in the mix but those just don't have 'romance' connected to them and so they are mentioned last.

@Derrybiketours - Well, actually I HAVE had that very exact experience...with family...who share the same odd blend of Celtic & Gallic blood coursing in my veins.

I was the ONLY soul finding the romance in the moment and so I (perhaps wrongly) assumed that I was wrong-footed with the general population. ;)

I do appreciate your sensitivity. Sometime, we should endeavor to get a hangover together. :D

:D Yes, both Africa and Asia are big, but maybe not so many members here? It is just 10 options that's the problem.

Yes, was thinking of Antarctica as well, but did not prioritize that. ;) :D Greenland is North America. Central America has to choose between the continents North and South, mostly they are north. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continent

We have to ask the forum to open up for more answer alternatives. 😄

Or only offer 3 possibilities:

3. Rest of the world

There's nothing wrong with putting Norway first: lovely country, lovely people! Had the privilige of visiting Norway. Once when the sun didn't set and once when the sun didn't rise. The second time got to spend time in the middle of winter in Alex Walker's lovely city of Tromsø. A very special experience, although I can't imagine how it is living there permanently.

I am focusing of geography in this case.
@Roland49 has a point. Central Europe is geographically undefined. Even Europe is geographically not clearly defined as to her Eastern or even Southeastern borders.

And is everybody on the same page as to whether the UK and Ireland are part of Western Europe or Northern Europe?

And the result so far, with 58 votes casts, doesn’t surprise me: the majority (31 so far) is from USA-CAN-AUS-NZ.

I remember asking my mother this, aged about 7, and receiving what she probably thought was an age-appropriate talk on the "facts of life."
"That's odd" I told her. "There's a new boy in class today, and he says he comes from Kilmarnock."

There's a certain type of Briton who will deny that Britain has ever been a part of Europe - hence the TIMES newspaper headline in the 1800s: "FOG IN THE ENGLISH CHANNEL, EUROPE CUT OFF."

While working at Rabanal a mixed group of young pilgrims checked in including a woman with jet black hair and startling, sapphire blue eyes.
"Would it be rude of me to ask where you're from?"
"I'm from Norway," she said in accentless English.
"Well thank you very much for the Christmas tree."
"You're welcome!"
Her friends looked very perplexed.
"It's a personal thing between Norway and England!"
And we left it at that.

Words. Our friends, and our downfall. I do like that one from Glenshiro, of the new avatar, about the facts of life talk. So often that is what happens. We reply to what we think we hear, not what is actually asked.
edit: I had fun, kind of, when teaching English as a second language. It is not easy to help people of other languages get the nuances involved in answering the question 'Where do you come from?' No matter where you have just come from, nor where did you come from this morning, where do you come from? has only one answer: the place of your birth. At least, to the best of my native English speaker knowledge, that is how I see it from my grasp of the English language. The older one becomes, the more doubts creep in though!

OK, THAT tree ☺. But before that, it was your foreign born and married-into-the family Royalty who gave you the Christmas tree. I used to think that it was Prince Albert but Wikipedia just informed me that it was Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

So where am I from? A small (and troubled) blue planet.
Similar here. I usually roll my eyes inside me or sigh inside me if that's physically possible 😂 when I'm asked this question by total strangers. My village of birth, my region of birth, my province of birth, my country of birth, my country of residence, my province of residence, the country of close family members, none of this defines me on its own but all of it has contributed to who I am now, and half of the geographical names wouldn't mean a thing to the person who asks the question.

i think perhaps it may have been surprising that there are so many members from outside of Europe.

It may be surprising to some that Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama, etc. are all in North America. The dividing line is between Panama and Columbia.

I put Northern Europe as i'm in NW Scotland but I swithered a lot between Western Europe or Northern. It deinitely feels Northern at the moment!
I love that word "swithered"...it's new to me!

Your's wasn't bad but I heard a bit of mid-west. Nothing as strong as in the movie Fargo but a tiny bit. I probably should have faked a Boston or Maine accent for you when we met but instead you got to hear real accentless English. ;)
Rick, if you chose to put on a Boston accent, it wouldn't have been fake...it would be the "real you"!
