Part of me wants to live in London because I'd like the arts there, another part of me wants to keep on living by the seaside.
Where I live the beach is stunning and the water is wild and I really like that. I feel like it would be difficult to ever more away, even if there was something great to be found somewhere else because I fear I'd miss the seaside.
You could always travel to London to see the arts. Not sure which seaside you're referring to, but Brighton to London is only a bit over an hour away by train (and maybe a bit more time on the underground to get to the centre of London).
Yeah, I can visit London easily enough (though I'm not as close as Brighton).
Guess it really doesn't matter all that much when I think about it more.
