    I'm kind of conflicted about it really. I live in North London and find the constant noise and rowdiness to be a bit stressful, but I'm fortunate enough to live in an area which is quite nice and green. I often hate using the bus but I am kind of forced to because I cannot keep a car and find the general standards of driving in my area to be absolutely appalling.
    The town-y area of North London is v noisy, yh I agree. Taking public transport anywhere in London is a pain :lol:

    Mmmh I don't agree at all.. Where exactly have you been ? Parisian do like tourists !
    And btw if you're trying to have a seat in the metro yeah you're not from there :lol: :lol:
    To be honest I was in a really ghetto part of Paris. The area looked like that movie "La Haine". But in the central of Paris people are actually really friendly.:dontknow:

    Tell me about it the busses are the worst during rush hour as well, so I resort to wearing sound isolating headphones and zoning out as quickly as possible. I've not lived in London all my life so I'm wondering whether I'm just not used to it?

    Oh yeah, Ilford is terrible. It's always over crowded and every time I pass there I get nauseous.

    Haha, I do exactly that! But when I fall asleep on the bus, I don't wake up and when I do, its the final stop of the service :/ Lol. I travel by train a lot though nowadays, which is even worse when you fall asleep :lol: It could be that, but I don't think you could ever get used to it. Imo the bus and tube services here are quite unreliable in a way, so you don't know what to get used to - if that makes sense.
