Where else to live

So the picks:

1. Byron Bay
2. Gold Coast
3. Sydney

Byron is at the top because despite the fact that it’s been 10 years since I’ve been there, it’s still the only time in my entire life that I found harmony.

I was never a big fan of the Gold Coast until I went there on my recent holdiay. Sure, I love the fact that the shops are open till 9pm…but it had a nice vibe, and I know people there.

Sydney, my home town, and I know a pile of people there. The question of course with Sydney is where to live in Sydney, a city of some 4 million + (maybe more) people.
