City or Country???

    Are you a city person or a country person ????

    I am most certainly a country person;always have been ever since I was a little girl exploring  the countryside that surrounded me with my Beagle Lassie.
    Today the inspiration that I get from Mother Nature for my writing is priceless and endless.

      Definitely a country person. I can't stand cities, too crowded. noisy, smelly and everyone lives at such a frenetic pace. I prefer small towns, villages, hamlets and the countryside in general. I love exploring woodlands and walking across fields, especially on a nice sunny day, makes you feel glad to be alive.

        I have to agree with you JKenny and yes it certainly does make us feel happy to be alive.
        Take care
        Eddy.

    Eiddwen, how are you, girl????  The country is by far the only life to live.  In Bishop, Ca, we've no smog, the lovely Sierra Nevada range of snow-capped mountains surrounding our town, and folks are friendly and sincerely care about their neighbors-often way too related! J/K, maybe...smile 
    I left Los Angeles long, long ago-disgusted by the anonymity all around, you understand, few meaningful connections to others...all the fear, rudeness and suspicion.
    YECH!!!

      Well what a nice surprise lorlie;it is so nice to see you on here.
      I have to agree with you also;I wrote a hub today about the contrast and personal preferences and thought it would be quite interesting to post it on here.
      How is all with you;drop me a line when yo have a moment.
      Take care
      Eddy.

    I am a formally suburban gal now living in the country and I love it..it does have its disadvantages but overall it agrees with me.

    Country, in every single respect. I love sea fishing, fresh game and meats, the beautiful scenery and fresh air - and friendly country pubs, of course! I definitely intend moving to a very small village on the coast in the fairly near future - I just haven't decided which one yet! - and the only reason I will visit the city is to watch my football (soccer) team, Rangers.

    I'm from a seaside town of about sixty thousand people and moved about 15 years ago to another seaside location but a city with two hundred and fifty thousand. It is still a very relaxed place due to the location but the traffic is a bummer. However I am a writer and I get lots of inspiration from the city and the vibe of the place. I do love the country, the peacefullness and the smells - But I'm a city girl at heart!

    I am too complex to decide if I like the city more than the country. I really don't know! lol
