How far away do you consider to be 'far away'? As in, how short is the shortest long distance in your mind?
And i mean, far outside of london. Really quite far indeed.
anyone would think i spent most of my life outside london. or something.
i would say anywhere outside of 1hr 30 travel via public transport.
From Southampton, for that was once home, Brighton and Gillingham (not the one in Kent, t'other one) were equidistant. However a trip to Brighton involved simply whizzing down the A27 and thus "not that far away". A trip to Grandma's in Gillingham took fucking forever on twisty B roads and through tiny pissflap villages, ergo "far away".
I suggest anything that requires a change on a train.
It's direct to Glasgow from here. It's not direct to Chandlers Ford.
as in i wouldn't travel that far to go to work and it would be a proper outing to go 50 miles
is the furthest point in cardiff away from me.
Hmm...when my sister lived in Brighton, I considered her 'just a train ride away'.
However, were I dating someone in Brighton I'd consider the relationship 'long distance'.
presumably you'd want to see one of those people more than the other. So i suppose that is relative.
When I'm in a pub, I often consider the toilets and the bar to be too far away.
Hmm. Long distances? I consider about 35 miles or so. That's fairly long distance. Just further than I'd be willing to cycle in one go.
I considered Skegness to Boston a right royal trek. Nottingham was like a journey to Everest.
Now I'm down here, I think nothing of my hour journey to work. Don't even think about it. Just get on with it. Yeah.
I dont know why, just seems like the place where i'd kill myself and thus travel no further
a pox on you
fair to middling.
how far away would someone have to be for you to consider it a 'long distance' relationship? The same as all the above?
because my boyfriend lives in the same city. But it does take me two hours to get from my house to his. If we lived anywhere else in the country, that'd be long distance, I reckon.
