    Yup.

    Switzerland is SO beautiful (the bit I saw driving through). My brother went for a year and kept raving abotu how amazing it was - and he was right. He said everyone was so nice and friendly and trusting as well - which I'm sure you'll agree with, kildare!

    I think you'll go along way to find anywhere as visually stunning. The three pictures I posted are all from a small village made up of about 2,000 people (63 nationalites represented though). The people are in the main, very nice too. In the French speaking part at leat

    Lancashire. Yorkshire is a dreary place. Lancashire is and always will be the finer of the two counties.

    Being serious it depends where they live, if you know I'd give you an honest answer because I know both counties very well.

    Wow, truly international village!

    I was staying in the German part, in Adelboden, which is possibly even more gorgeous than the photos Fishpaste has posted. Although for someone from England, living there for 3 months and coming home and being able to see the horizon again is a weird feeling! The mountains just tower up above you; it's stunning. I think I've just attached a picture of the background with some of us on sledges, it's the only pic I've got on this computer, but it gives you some idea.

    I found most of the German speakers very friendly, but their language is horrible!

    My old geography teacher often said that what the french/italians/Swiss dont class as an area of outstanding natural beauty, it would be the most beautiful place in England lol.

    I'd say Alaska and Norway is more beautful than the alp regions though.

    Well, Torquay seems to be full of Scottish people and people from Newcastle and Liverpool. Work is generally seasonal so it's a "socially deprived" area. It has a high teen pregnancy rate and there are a lot of heroin users. It is indeed the English Riviera and it's very beautiful and warm. Nice for a holiday, NOT a nice place to live.

    I like the fact that it feels like a gigantic death trap, whether you're on the beach or a badly maintained ride.

    Well the photo's I was posting where taken uniquely from a tiny village to be fair . I think the most beautfiul place I've ever been in was Champery in the Alps. The most stunning view though is definitly along the Vevey to Montreux road when the sun is setting as Lac Leman and the Alps merge to become a single entity. Simply stunning.

    I prefer to go on the beach you get a nice green glow afterwards

    I can't stand being in Cambridge for so long, I feel like I can't breathe. It's so flat - I'm used to seeing views from the top of hill and cliffs. I need to see the coast and I miss: trees, flowers, hedges, styles, bridlepaths, fields, mud, cows, sheep, manure smells (!)

    OOooo... I could never live in a place like Cambridge. This is the furthest north I've ever lived and the longest I'd ever been away from the coast before Cambridge was 4 days. I NEED salty air to survive.
