    I always said I would hate to live in Sydney when I lived in the country.

    I thought I would hate the traffic - instead I learned to drive here and love it!

    I thought the people were rude - instead they are MUCH friendlier than the snobby cliquey people from my home town.

    I thought there was more crime - instead I haven't been witness to ANY crime in the 4 years I've lived here, however there have been 5 murders, a drive by, and likely the same massive drug problem hanging about in my old town in that time.

    I thought I would hate to live in a unit - instead I love having neighbors just across the hall who come by to give me a stack of cookies when they bake a batch I also love not having to mow the lawn!

    So I guess I wouldn't *hate* to live anywhere, because for all I know the things I think I wouldn't like may well end up being the things I love!

    Lol. I always said I would hate to live in Sydney too. But since moving I have realised how awesome it is. It's village-y, it's leafy and it's friendly.

    I put it down to it being a v different place to visit - especially for work - than to live in.

    I grew up in Sydney but moved to WA when I was 18. I have been back a couple of times since and could never live in the metro area there again. I would live along the coast but have no interest in battling traffic, having people live on my doorstep on small blocks (if you want to live close to the city) etc.

    I don't think there is anywhere I would hate to live. It's more about the environmental factors that could happen anywhere.

    E.g., I'd hate to live anywhere with nasty neighbours.
    I'd hate to live in a high crime area.
    I'd hate to live somewhere that smells bad/ has loud noise around.

    Agreed. Which is where I live now. Tragic.

    I couldn't live anywhere other than Melbourne or be further than a 10k radius of the cdb. I'd holiday anywhere else though
