Can it be that we are so diverse in our backgrounds but have never lived anywhere else but the good old UK? Why is this? are we boring? Really i am interested in us.

Hi born London live now in Slough, yawn!
your life seems interesting though. DP has often spoken about the poss of moving fm UK to Europe (better quality of life esp for the family) and it made me re-think. What do u think?

born here, only lived here, unless you count the 3.5 months I stayed in the States. Have travelled a bit, but not for ages.

Do any of you wish that perhaps life could be a bit more exciting. I keep watching these life stly progs where families go off and do something different eg move to spain and buy a wreck and look far happier for it. or is it just me?

I too am london born and bred, but this is an interesting topic.

London is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, many people from across the globe will testify to that and i certainly have made the most of what london has to offer culturally.

Sometimes things can be on your doorstep but we just take it for granted.

My grandparents are St Lucian, my parents were born and bred here and I consider myself to be simply black british.

My partner is Lithuanian born and bred, he's been here for 4 years.

We are expecting our first any day now, 5 days late!!!

I am a fairly well travelled person but I honestly havent seen more of a mix of people anywhere else than walking along a London street!

Having said all that clearly its not the same as a first hand experience of being in another country and 'feeling' the culture, soaking it in and appreciating - or not - the differences.

network - I was born in sunny london and have only lived in sunny london, even stayed here for uni although I moved out!!! what can i say i love london but I know it also has a lot to do with the fact that in london i can be just one of the crowd! I am way more boring as I have never wanted to live anywhere else! Although I love to go on holidays and see new places.
