I love being able to see the mountains from almost anywhere in town :) Pictures really don't do the view justice. Only been up there when there has been snow on the mountains, very cold but really pretty :) On a good day you can see more mountains, and on a bad day you can't see anything and would get lost walking around up there in the fog.
I love being so close to the sea that on some days you can smell the sea in the air :D
I love the history. I don't just mean old buildings, but the history of an area, the people that lived there. How a place came to be or ceased to be in some cases. I do love seeing all the old buildings (of which there are a lot in town), the detail that went into some of them is amazing and actually makes me sad that a lot of buildings that are made today are pretty much cookie cutter houses that look the same.
I hate (which is a strong word, but apt in the case :/) the neds. But I am not going to take a picture to show people for a few reasons (mainly I don't want the camera nicked). My biggest beef with the Neds (besides the stealing and fighting), is that most cry that they have had a hard up bringing, from a one parent home or were brought up around drugs and they use it as an excuse to knife someone, or steal something. And then get away with it :/ I know plenty of people that have harder lives then most of the neds, who were raised in a one parent home and raised around drugs who don't go around looking for a fight or smashing up buildings. People that are clean (sober or not taking drugs), don't go picking fights, and don't steal. Its a lame excuse to use to try to justify almost killing someone or fighting :/
yeah little bit of a rant lol
