I Sarza wanted to mention a place called Ashford in Kent. With the towns false feeling. Lego style buildings. Lack of Character.Large numbers of Yobbos chavs, and small minded people, not to mention getting beaten up in pubs by locals because you are not Ashford born and bred, its depressing. Not to mention having to wait a hour at Ashford station for a train. Then again the same could be applied to my place of residence that I want to escape from. CRAWLEY.

Strike86, Portsmouth can appear pretty appalling at times I agree, but I actually like it and think it has loads of great stong points to counteract its bad ones!

I cant think of any strongpoints for Croydon though.

My 5 would be:
- Bracknell, England
- Merthyr Tydfil, Wales
- Enfield and much of North London surrounding it.
- Liverpool,England
- Harlesdon, England (words fail me to describe this place)

Abroad, I would have to consider:
- Nadi, Fiji
- South Auckland (NZ)
- Benidorm, Spain
- Calais, France
- Athens, Greece (apart from the very centre bit)

In the UK:

Coventry, England

Llanelli, Wales

Birmingham, England

Bradford, England

Middlesborough, England

I just loooove London so much, even the poor districts. The best place I've ever been to, lol.

Abroad:

Evanston, IL, USA - I was a student there and very unexciting place

France period - so rude and do not speak English or pretend not to (how arrogant of me). It is pretty though.

Jamaica - very homophobic and machismo culture prevails.

Can't think of any others overseas, I really enjoy my travels.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
