I have visisted London but have never been to Vancouver. I am not a cop. I like parks and green space but at the end of the day, you can only be in one park at a time.

That park can however be more pleasant if there are more parks around and it is not over crowded.

I have spent many rainy days in Bournemouth so I feel qualified to air my views on this thread.

Ah Vancouver, the most perfect city in the world.

Personally, I'd rather live somewhere slightly more interesting.

Tread temporarily closed until we can clean it up. Too many personal comments.


Lets not forget that opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

Whats "best" is subjective. There is no best, just opinions about it, so dont get personal, and dont comment on other posters personalities cos you know where that leads. If a poster winds you up, use the ignore function... its an advantage the forum has over "Real life".

Thread now reopened after much pruning.

For those of you who have debated sensibly without resorting to personal abuse - thank you and carry on.

For those of you who have felt the need to call each other names and get personal - use the ignore button, that's what it's there for, and argue your point without chucking abuse around.

Thx.

Not Mr Burns

Guard: It's time for a cavity search.
Mr. Burns: Oh, I haven't had a cavity in forty years.
Guard: I wasn't talking about your teeth.
Mr. Burns: Nor was I.
