I just live there.
If you mean LA then I would as a non-driver and user of public transport because LA's is piss poor. But it was a cool place.
How would you interpret that phrase then?
Not in those words anyway. Even if California was an exact life-size replica of London, you could still move there and miss London. It's a matter of sentiment, you fucking ROBOT.
The point is that there's a world of difference between moving from London to the hills in rural California and to the bustle of one of its very different metropolises.
Would I notice a difference, well obviously I would anyway, but 'miss' is more about what you get from a place and what's there to replace it at the other end.
I could leave London for somewhere much *better* and still miss it. Took me ages to get used to not having police sirens sing me to sleep when I went to uni.
with its commies, hills, gays and bridge
moved away as a child, moved back again for a year in their late teens, moved away for two years and then returned for the last 6 years?
If you've got the option, do it; you can always move back.
Been to SF and it's OMFGrlyNICE so might not miss London.
But I'd still go if someone offered me a relatively stress-free chance.
[where x=a place that you enjoyed living in]
seeing as i've only been to San Francisco, if i moved there...probably not as much as if i moved anywhere else, no
Why'd you want to go there, you haven't seen all of Chelmsford yet
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
guntrip this'd this
Satire can work round that sort of thing.
Danielkelly is having issues...
once for christmas
if i had a decent job opportunity there i would leave london in a shot
It would be fun to live somewhere else, but i dunno, I'd always want to come back to London
Might sound dull or unadventurous to some, but fuck it. London's great and hasn't yet failed to surprise and interest me and there are huge parts of it I know shit-all about.
I'll quite happily spend time elsewhere and do want to get about and see stuff, but I'll always want to come back.
Knows how to party.
Yes. My Cally>their Cali
Not in a homesick way, just occasionally 'wouldn't it be nice to do the thing where we did the things' sort of way
I'm exotic and dangerous. Delete my post
...means someone who has lived in London for a period of time, then this is the situation my mate had. Lived in London for 8 years, moved to SF for 3 years and has now been in LA for 2 years. He enjoys it, but certainly misses elements of London. SF seemed to be less of a change for him as it is still a fairly cosmopolitan, metropolitan area, albeit without a drinking culture. LA is more soul-less, altho this has involved him undergoing quite a life change and getting into the beach and fishing and such.
In short, different but positive.
LA is the only place I've ever visited that has more gigs than London btw.
with better weather and holes in the road that are full of rubbish and hordes of feral cats
don't forget the roundabouts
who is living in berkeley, california for the year. i miss london and don't think i could stay forever.
The history and culture's good innit.
as it's impossible to get a visa to live there. So, probably not.
I'm not a Londoner but I would very much like to move to California in the next few months.
I'm going in April to see firstly if I still really love it and if so, to try nail me a sweet, sweet internship / job. Fingerscrossed!!11
And I miss California (San Francisco, specifically).
But they're both really cool parts of the world with very different things to their credit.
