At heart, I mean.
Me? I'm an edinburgh maaaaaaaaaaaaan.
I think. In the country i miss the city and vice-versa. I am never satisfied
so i'm a city type
I don't want to leave! I'm dreading heading back to a place with one traffic light.
but I'm definitely a city type
But I do love the countryside. Being from Glasgow gives you the added benefit of only being an hour or so away from amazing and tranquil countryside.
I get realy urges to head back to the city after about 2 days in the countryside...
But I need access to a city, it really can get boring otherwise. Not sure I could always live in a city though.
i like both, cant stand to be trapped in a city but wouldnt want to live in one.
i grew up in the country side a long way away from any city
there's so many good things about them both.
take my walk to work for example: it takes 25 minutes and i get to stare out at the pentland firth and orkney - everything from holborn head to dunnet head, can see the old man of hoy and time myself by watching the Scrabster - Stromness ferry head for port.
you just wouldn't get that in the city. probably spend that time on the tube reading the Metro.
it just felt appropriate
Grew up in the countryside, still haven't lived properly in a city yet. A balance between the two is good.
I can't stand the countryside
"Oh look, another big field with nothing it"
I lived in the country for 2 months. It was awful!
exactly, you dosy git. we don't all have massive trust funds.
I love living in a City but doubt I'll do it forever.
Amirite or amirite?
weak, very weak
that has a 20p pool table!
you wouldn't get that in the city.
the swimming pool lockers only take the old 50p coins.
you wouldn't get that in a city.
I enjoy visiting cities, but think I's find it oppressive to live in one.
I was born in a city, but I love living in the countryside. At night all I can hear are owls squeaking and hooting.
However, I like having the cities nearby - where I live I can be in six within an hour. I'm never bored.
It can be a bit grim in Winter though - mud everywhere.
Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
I had not thought death had undone so many.
but city all the way. I love urban landscapes and the feel of a city waking up on a summer morning, and now that I live in London I can't imagine anywhere else in the UK I'd rather be.
I like the countryside but I could never live there
taller the better
I live in a city and wouldn't want to leave but I like to know the country's still there when I need it in limited doses.
My folks live in the country, and I really dislike going home, enjoy seeing my folks, but I'm not really a fan of no amenities and fields and beaches and stuff.
I've lived in Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham and loved them all. Now I have to move to fucking Wrexham for work. I better take up rambling or heavy drinking to occupy the time.
