I'm living in holland with a dutch passport aswell. But as you all know that doesn't mean I am en dutchman. yes to the state I am.

I was born in SA (sannieshof, wes transvaal) than moved to Venda (siloam) and at the time I turned 8 we went to holland. so I am living for about 13 years in holland now, but that doesn't make me a dutchman.
I am and always will be a South-African.

Its your hart what tells you your nationality. and my hart is telling me that I am an South-African (Suid-Afrikaan).

Proud to be born in SA

never mind U.K.,
I'm British, then English but most of all I'm from Yorkshire!
Yorkshire born and bred but desperate to live in the African bush.

Oh dear - I seem to have missed this first time around

I think I can best describe myself as "British" (although not UK) - I am pure Scots by parentage, but I was born in Malta and have lived most of my life south of Hadrian's Wall - the vast majority of it in Jersey (which is part of the British Isles but is not a part of the United Kingdom).

At the moment I'm living in England but I hope to be back in Jersey permanently in the next couple of months.
Cheers, Simon

I'm Indian. Looking fwd to my first visit to SA in 32 days time I've spent a lot of time in the Indian jungles, it will be exciting to be in a completely different kind of country, seeing completely different kinds of animals. Cant wait

I was born in SA, and moved to Swaziland when little so am now a SWAZI through owning land here.

Struggling to get my SA Citizenship back, its an enormous hazzle and masses of paper work. My "birthrite" appears to mean nothing!!!

I therefore consider myself an [AFRICAN
