    On a frozen flooded field in the park at the end of my street. I didn't take real lessons or anything, but figured out how to skate forwards, glide on one foot, and do little baby spread eagles. We had roller skating as part of gym class at my school, and that's where I learned to skate backwards.

    I learned at Northcross Mall in Austin Texas. There is still a rink near there, but it is no longer in the mall. I love the open feel of mall rinks.

    At a county parks outdoor rink, then a now-closed rink in a mall. I'm now re-learning at county parks indoor rinks (they built indoors rinks in place of the old outdoors rinks).
