Greetings From Hampshire

Recommended Posts

Hello! I’m Shinydan, I hail from Portsmouth in Hampshire, UK, and I’ve been a Sumo fan since Channel 4 started showing it in 1987. I was incredibly happy to find the NHK World highlights show on my tv, and watch it at every opportunity.

Hail, Shinydan.  If it makes you feel less alone out there, know that I'm also from Hampshire (these days).  There's at least two of us!

Three of us. :)

I’m originally from a place called Hythe on the western shore of Southampton water and have family all over the Southampton area. I’m living in China these days by way of Japan.

Welcome aboard Shinydan!

Chuck in your salt and join the fray......

Not only a fellow Englishman but you also live in a place I have visited(possibly a first on this board)

Nice place! Only stayed the weekend with friends but good night outs...........

Naah, I was there twice -- once on my way to IOW, the other to visit the rarely open to visitors military airbase.

I think he means that Portmouth is the first place he’s visited of all places mentioned on the forum, not that he’s the first person on the forum to visit Portsmouth. For what it’s worth, I’ve been there several times as I’m from the city next to it.

I’ve been to Portsmouth in New Hampshire if that counts

Me too.  In fact, I lived there from the ages of 2-4.:-P
