I'm currently in Seattle and it's a very nice city. Not too large or in your face like many US cities. I like it.

Any more ????

I'm currently in the outskirts of East London. Nice and dirty, freezing cold, rain every couple of hours, chavs and pikeys on every corner.

Any more?????

St Petersburg has to be the most beautiful city in the world - fell in love with it at age nineteen.

May I have a principality instead please? In fact, not the entire principality, that would be too grand, I'd just like to be sat in the sunshine, on the little wall right on the edge of Monaco, looking out over the boats in the harbour below. It would be lovely to do that again one day.

I'll have Mahon. Well, sailing into Mahon harbour. Or sailing into Valetta, very impressive. Shit place but liked sailing into it.
But I love Mahon.

Actually I've been thinking about this and I don't know what I'm talking about. Those places are nicebut I'll have London any day of the week ta.
Best place in the world in my opinion.
I was trying to write a piece the other week about how I feel about it, but I can't do it. I get all emotional and overwhelmed. (Yeah right Very Happy ) I can't get it into words though, how I feel about London.

I understand how she feels. I feel the same way about Cardiff.

I love to travel and visit different places, but at the end of the day, I have this overwhelming sense of Hireath: an unexplainable longing and pining for my home.

I think, (this going to be profound, hold on to your titfers) you have to be born in London. It's in your blood. How corny is that? But it's true. Even if you don't particularly want to live right in the middle of it, it does your heart glad to know that's where you come from.
Right... just off to press the pearly queen outfit and have a few jellied eels for me breakfast.......

I think you've hit on something there. I was born and bred in Derby and even though I have southern parents and live 15 miles away from Derby now it still feels like home to me. My mum still calls London home and she's been in Derby for 40 years.

I've never related home to anywhere I've lived - home for me is always where the people I love are.

As for the yes/no issue. Definitely 'no'. Why? Because I can. Wink
