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.
- 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)
