    Born in Germany, moved to the UK when I was 8. Have been living in London ever since (for 10 years now). Parents are both German nationals of Polish descent (both were born in Poland and moved at an early age). My dad moved here to work for a German insurance firm's office in the U.K, and me and my mum both moved with him here.
    We are all still German citizens although I can only speak basic German lol and can hardly even remember what my childhood in Germany was like

        They put you in London for 10 years?

        Christ, I didn't think we treated immigrants that badly. Isn't there a human rights law against this kind of maltreatment?!

        I like it a lot. I've only lived in London so don't know what it's like to live in other parts of the country but London is a great city, so much history everywhere you go, great public transport, very diverse, so much to do, and has friendly but quiet people.

        I've been living here since I was 8 years old so I feel at home here, can't imagine living anywhere else. London is full of opportunities as well, when it comes to careers and starting a business.

        London is probably the best city in the UK in my view, I have visited the other main cities like Birmingham/Manchester/Cardiff/Liverpool/Bradford/Leeds and they all seem (no offence intended) a bit boring and they aren't very significant globally. London is really one of the, if not the, most globally influential cities on the planet. I love the history, the culture, the transport, the diversity and the opportunities it has to offer. I might not be British but I would say I'm a Londoner lol

          I’m sorry to hear that you had to visit those other cities.

          I've been to parts of Dorset and Cornwall, both very beautiful and nice in their own ways but I'd prefer to live in a city personally and out of all the cities in the U.K. I've been I'd say London is the best by quite a long way (obviously excluding the more dodgy parts)

          It's not exactly ideal but the weather across Northern/Western/Eastern Europe isn't great overall. I don't really mind the weather. Unlike most British people I just don't really notice the weather, it's not something I think about haha

            You've been looking at the wrong cities lmao.

            I was joking about London, but really, those other cities are terrible. Visit York, Oxford, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Bristol and Bath some day.

            If you exclude the dodgy parts, just the only things you are left with are Downing Street and Buckingham palace, hardly a city.

            Cambridge is absolutely beautiful, fantastic architecture. I went there last year for the uni interview but got rejected so I guess I'm never going there again lol
            I really want to visit Bath. I've seen pictures of the architecture and it looks amazing.

            Oxford is horrible outside of the city centre, and Bristol is hardly a cultural hub. I'll give you the others though.
