@Khaiser I liked the London pictures. I don't know where you're based, I'm in England and did a stint in London when at University. We don't know how lucky we are. Ace city.

Based in Edinburgh but go to London quite often for work. I worked there for a period after graduating and hated it :lol:

Love to visit now though. Like most global cities (NYC, HK etc) it’s a great place to be provided you have money to enjoy it. Hard to rank cities because any really good one offers something quite unique, but London is definitely up there with the best.

I can understand you not liking London, Khaiser. London is a bit Marmite, you either love it or hate it. I was there for a year and a bit doing a Masters degree at KCL. I made the best of it and loved it to bits. I lived with another six students and one of them was an American kid who had been in London for quite some years and he was basically a London A-Z book. Wherever you wanted to go he'd take you there, he knew more places than the locals. I saw so much stuff, so many places your average tourist wouldn't know of.

I've always maintained if I could earn upwards of £100k I'd be living down there in a flash. Anything lower than that amount and you're likely to struggle.

I liked New York, I never lived there but when I was living in the US I used it as a base for travelling and meeting friends. A glorious place, though gloriously expensive.

I think that’s the crux of it, and in that regard London isn’t dissimilar to most major cities. Great places to be if you have time and money, particularly if you’re young, but a bit harsh, unwelcoming and limiting if you don’t.

I don’t think I would go back to live in London now as my lifestyle in Edinburgh is pretty ideal, and if I was moving anywhere it would be for something very different. Still a great place to visit though.
