It's alright here (Mansfield, Nottinghamshire - Robin Hood Country)

there isn't that much here - it's a former coal mining area that got decimated when Margaret Thatcher closed the pits in the 80s, but I was born and raised here and it's where all my friends are. I work in nottingham which is a really cool city.

I lived in Ireland for a while, and would still be there if it wasn't so bloody expensive

I second that. And now with rising housing costs it seems I can't make it out here (San Diego, CA) too much longer anyway.

Anyway - I like where I live in the south west of England a lot, tho right now, I would like to live a lot closer to my gf to save all the travelling....but what they hey - she's worth it to me.

I like where I live too, in southern Australia. I did live in Melbourne which was cool, and I reckon I'll move somewhere to the eastern coast eventually.

I live in a condominium in the southwestern suburbs ... 100 miles away from Chicago in the Central part of Illinois.
I love where I live because it's so-ooo beautiful and somewhat secluded ... I absolutely love the scenery of open fields to gaze at when travelling the interstate, and shop at lots of stores within my area as well.
I enjoy travelling to Chicago every once in awhile though, just to "unwind" and see the "fast paced busy-ness" that the Windy City always seems to offer.
It's a refreshing change to experience every so often, plus I occasionally visit my friends who are alot closer to Chicago in the Northern suburbs.

I love living in Europe..Belgium is too small though, sometimes suffocatingly so. I'd love to live in Spain.

I dislike where I live, but I am a very restless person in general.
I live in Bournemouth - it's a seaside area right at the south of England on the coast line. It's bizarre, really. These days it seems to consist of mainly pompous rich folk or chavs - i've noticed that so much more recently :/
I suspect at one point in my life, I will settle down and find that one place where I feel comfortable, but i'm unsure where that will be - possible in the northern states, Canada, or Ireland. I'm a bit sick of England, although I won't deny that it's been a wonderful place to grow up.

I've never really felt at home here in Australia, ever since I moved here back in 1996 as a 10 year old little boy. I guess I always viewed it as an extended kind of holiday, even though I knew it wasn't. I've always felt like I'm being called back, and have been homesick terribly the past 3 years especially. Within the next 2 years it'll happen. The catch is I would really like to see the world some more- just to open my eyes etc. London, New York etc etc, I love the big cities.

me too.

i recently moved back to the city where i grew up after being away at university for ten years. it's a bizarre feeling, because i know my way around town, but the city's changed, and most of my friends aren't around anymore. it's like being an alien in a very familiar place.

Not particularly. The winters, as livluv said, suck, so for that I'm not fond of it. I'm very close to Detroit, which isn't that great as far as big cities go, and in general I loathe suburbia. I do love my apartment, though. It's very quiet and it's fifteen minutes from where I work.

I love Melbourne and feel at home here, even though right now the winter is in full swing and the weather is quite miserable. But I'm not so terribly keen on the street we currently live on; the traffic is too damn noisy.
