    Haha, reminds me of when I lived in Coventry, I thought “Now, this town’s large, and close to Birmingham which is even larger, so there’ll be plenty to do!” Was there? No, because everytime I heard about something fun, it always took place in London!
    It’s not the same in Sweden, though. Sure, Stockholm is the biggest and stuff tends to happen there first, before it happens somewhere else, but I’ve lived in the second largest city, Gothenburg, almost my entire life and we get a lot of things here that they don’t get in Stockholm, and Malmö, the third biggest city, has lots of other fun things, too! This might be because the population differences between the cities aren’t very large, and because Sweden only has 3 cities (the others are just small towns), however.

      I guess the population is divided a bit different over there then. :)
      London must be amazing when it comes to celebrations like New Year’s… so many countries have ads during that time for tourist trips. I wonder if it’s very multicultural? And maybe it’s great for visiting, but not for living in?
      (Just thinking out loud)

    It’s so true! I visited Nagoya, which is the third biggest city in Japan (I’ve never even been to Osaka), and I was like…”Where are the PEOPLE?!” So yes. The rest of Japan is definitely not as ridiculously crowded and crazy like Tokyo. Although use “Tokyo” and “Japan” interchangeably all the time…by accident!

      I guess it’s different when you actually grow up (partially) in a big city like that!
      I remember mentioning to a Japanese colleague from Tokyo that I saw my very first sky scrapers in Frankfurt… we have like, 5… and she just replied with “Er… we’ve got over a 100.” XD

    London is lovely (and quite different from what I expected it to be, before I went), but I think my heart belongs to either Cardiff or Oxford. London only comes in second. :D

      Hmmm I should go to more places. Or just have a long holiday and travel a bit between the cities. ;)

    they probably lived there as it’s  the only place in Uk where there is a huge variety of top quality restaurants. you’ll find great food elsewhere too, but not in anywhere near as many different venues.
    Because only in London there is a big enough group of people rich enough to sustain these places.

    • Tze says:

      Wow, that’s quite a claim! Your sure? :DI guess it would be more concentrated than other places maybe because of the many tourists…

    OH! I agree entirely :D I live up in the North East of England where there is lots of lovely stuff but some people don’t even seem to realise there is life past London- never mind way up North ;3

      I guess it’s the tourist spot, eh! To be honest, the first time I visited the UK I also went to… London. *shame*
