I've been thinking seriously about relocating to a more remote location, purely & simply because of the quality of life but there are certain aspects of London that I would miss, like for example, the easy access to theatres & other things , right on your doorstep.

Likewise, but which one would you choose, assuming money wasn't an issue?

Having lived in central London and now in the countryside I would never go back to city living where nobody cares about others. As for theatres I manage that at least 3/4 Times a year.

I quite like the fact you can get lost in the city & you don't have the "nosey neighbour" , who watches your every move.uh oh cool laugh wave

Nosey neighbours I can just see the house of my neighbour and that's because there's no leaves on the trees.

I think access to theatres and shows might be a bit of bullshit really. Basically, how often do you go to shows and theatres? I have friends in Cairns that are right into music and shows, they go to Sydney/Brisbane/Melbourne/Adelaide to see all different shows and festivals.

Its personal choice, you like living where you live. My guess is we all do, otherwise we'd move, right?

I've always lived in the city and it's a fairly short drive to get to the country if I want to go there but I prefer the conveniences of city life. wave

Where I lived in London was mafia-ridden and really expensive. The scum area on the doorstep of the west London super rich and I doubt I'd go back there. But it was weird, 90% had no soul but the remaning 10% were real magnets to one another. You could expect precious little in the way of manners, but at the same time become like catnip to the soul. People stop you in the street and marvel at your humanity saying thank god he's made of flesh and blood.

Maybe the biggest legacy I have of the fast paced life of London/England, is that I can no longer donate blood here. They are fearful of mad cow disease. Maybe I should have seen more shows and theatre productions and basked in the glory of such an awesome place, or stayed away from the crime and disease infested rat-hole and been able to live as a normal decent blood-donating human being.

Just a thought.

What I hate about living in a big city is the amount of wasted on travelling time one goes through every day....
The other thing is that you can die and they discover your mummified corps years later...

I used to live in Sydney, and think if you didnt live there something was wrong... Now when I go there I think- you poor things.

I'm guessing the same thing with Londoners, they're a bit insular and feel that because they are stuck in such a rut the rest of the world must be envious, what with all the theatres and shows on offer. They probably arent. They actually probably have their own shows and theatres, and get by just fine.

But yeah, probably popping a few bubbles here, I should shut my big mouth and pretend to want to live in London.

I live on a dirt road in the country, that has such a small amount of traffic, I fall asleep on it, when I watch the stars; and nobody ever woke me up.
