    Default London

    I spent four years working in London as a younger man.
    big city! my experience was the city centre is world class, exciting
    impressive. but suburbia was fairly dull. i found the people a bit
    paranoid and defensive, but thats what you can expect in a city
    that holds @ 11 million people by day and 7 million overnight.

    were you there, what was your experience?

    Lived just outside London for about six years and travelled into the centre daily to work. An amazing place and found the people I met incredibly friendly and helpful.

    I lived there for nearly 10 years as a young man, and I had a great time. But I didn't want to raise my children there, and now that I am no longer young, I wouldn't even go there at all. It is too big/busy/dirty/noisy/expensive (like any big city) for my old bones.
    countryside is the place for me now.

    I spent a good few years working in London and actually only returned to Dublin early last year. I loved the place and spent many years living in and around the east end. When I first moved over it was a real culture shock as the place is just so huge but over the years I made so many brilliant friends from all around the world that happened to be living in London for some time.
