    That's the good thing about living in Norway. Stunning nature is usually only 5 minutes away. The population is only 4,9 million, cities are usually small. I live in a city on the west coast, breathe fresh sea air, see the stars, and the great outdoors is right outside my doorstep to put it mildly. Even in Oslo, the capital. It's rarely more than 10 minutes away.
    This makes me sad

    Hopefully I'll get all the country living I need for a while by going to Ireland to do my dissertation research . . . see the stars, some peace and quiet . . .

    I live in a town.

    The fields and woods are a 10 minutes walk away.

    Big towns with shopping centres/ice-rinks are 15 minutes drive away.

    London is a 35 minute train journey away, with trains running past midnight.

    Best of both worlds!

    Thats why Ididnt put town as an option! So, would you rather live in a city or village? (both average size)
    City, because it could be a city that's the size of a town. Like Bangor for example.

    But if their average size then village, because crowds annoy me.

    My big brother lives in the 'country', which is about 5 minutes away from the biggest shopping centre. My city of 35.000/40.000 is actually the 12th biggest city here! Lol.

    That sounds very nice :^_^:

    Where I live doesn't even count as a village, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere bigger. I imagine this will change as I get older though - after Uni I can easily see myself living in London.
    Why do you not even want to live in a village now but move to the biggest city in the whole country for uni?!

    Without a doubt city. I already live in a village and everything closes at 5. Even the public transport stops running after 6. Everything is backwards in the countryside.

    I study in Lancaster (population of 45,000-50,000) and my hometown is of the same size. I would definitely rather live in a city than a village.

    I live in a city of 35.000/40.000 people. A little boring, but I like it. I don't like overcrowded cities. Mine is quiet and nice.
    A city of 35 000?
    I live in a town of 100 000

    Of course the countryside and fresh air can be nice, but I would definitely get bored looking at the same hills 365 (or however many if you go on holiday) days a year, no actually probably after a month or so. So I'd like to live in a massive city and then travel right across the world visiting basically everywhere Then go back to the city, and if i'm ever bored I'll go on a holiday again

    Haha, yes. But we're talking Norwegian standards here. Norway's population is 4,9 million. Oslo (the capital) has a little over half a million.

    In which case, I'd prefer to live in the outskirts of a small city, so I can have easy access to the fields and woods but also have access to the shops and stuff in the city.

    I live in the absolute middle of nowhere a mile away from a tiny village...and I would like to live in a bigger village

    Or failing that, for the old station to be reopened I like trains.

    I'd rather live on the outskirts of a city. I love the idea of living in surburbia with a little Porsche when I've established my career

    I currently live in a city, and would rather live in a village or a small town like I used to. It's so much better when there are fewer cars on the road and hopefully nothing to ruin the beautiful scenery or mug you during your daily business.
    Isolation is no problem whatsoever, in fact it's much preferred. As long as there is a decent supermarket within five or six miles, you can get all the essentials you need with relative convenience.
