I'm currently living in Barcelona and its good fun.
and he says that in the winter people just let their dogs shit on the snow and don't bother to pick it up. The it snows again and covers all the previous shit so it doesn't get cleaned up. This is repeated throughout the winter so when the snow melts the streets are turned into rivers of shit. Other than this he really liked it.
...seem to be a bit bad for letting their dogs shit on the pavement. That said, Berlin would still top my list of places to live if I were to move out of London.
Longlist - Munich, Madrid, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Belfast, Manchester.
when your lying flat on your face with a needle sticking out of your toenail and a masterpiece manuscript on your bedside table, by bedside I mean sheet side, and by table I mean rusty nail.
never saw a river of shit in 3 years.
Copenhagen seems like a cool place.
not helsinki cause i'm bored of it
might take the ferry from stockholm at some point in the summer. it's cheap isn't it?
and helsinki is lovely in summer
Although living in London is great anyway
just had a chat with Salmond and he said scotland doesn't want any more history graduates.
with the power of history
Has anyone actually ever lived in paris?
people who live in london love london
people who live outwith london hate london
guess you have to be a "london person" to want to live in london idk.
Parisiens are rubbish to live around apparently. All the french people I know confirm this.
And if 'for a month' counts, then yes (it was in a flat, on my own, if that makes it better than 'travelling'.) Otherwise: no.
So I'm going to assume that you can't see the Channel Tunnel.
Best year and a half of my life
live somewhere in paris. smoke.
it smells and is full of old americans why would anyone want to live there.
well, the actual historical city bit anyway. would be pretty horrible.
you're a capital city fanboy.
Toronto, Vancouver, Sydney, Amsterdam...
(first use ever) lol
Reykjavik is probably my favourite place in the world but not really sure how easy it'd be to live there.
I wouldn't mind paying so much if I got some fucking space or didn't have to put up with some cunt with a sub-woofer in his room.
hope to do my masters there too
Beautiful streets, beautiful people, beautiful beaches, beautiful cocktails and beautiful sunshine.
Is my favourite out of the places I've visited. Although I would like to visit Berlin, Cologne, Reyklavik and Stockholm because they seem like awesome places.
I've been told it's great.
if i wanted to live somewhere else more, i'd live somewhere else. but my foreign speaking is pretty poor. could conceivably move to a french or german speaking place and improve my basiccc skills
for three years, would definitely recommend it. No need for a car (all transport (s-bahn, u-bahn, regional, tram & bus) was €90/month), relaxed, cheap, fucked-up etc. Lots of bad points, but they're glossed over, especially in the summer. However, the winter lasts aaagggggeeessssssssss. But....yeah, i'd go back.
and I'd be really rich, live in Mayfair or Belgravia. Mmm...I'd date Hugh Grant's ex-girlfriends...and probably still be nursing a hangover from the Royal Wedding after parties...and I'd wear a bowler hat.
As long as you avoid the centre of the red light district (there are some decent shops in the south of it and the shit tourists don't venture that far) it's perfect. Gets all the gigs, it's really compact, but has loads going on, nice mix of cultures, good inner-city greenland but a large forest a cycle away, some great bars, everyone's so friendly and you can ride a bike anywhere. Maybe the only problem is the weather is a bit British in the winter.
Too expensive right now though. Vaguely considering moving to Edinburgh at some point but it's probably not as interesting as I imagine it to be.
But more realistically probably somewhere in Germany like Berlin, Hamburg, Koln, Stuttgart etc. Copenhagen is also mega-cool, really want to go back there.
