ive relatives who were born in adelaide , they found it incredibly boring and moved to melbourne

i didnt find auckland anymore boring than christchurch new zealand , the most boring city in new zealand is hamilton by a mile

Been to Dublin.. think it is inferior to Glasgow. For a capital city it's pretty scruffy and underwhelming, not at all buzzing, and too much of a bar culture. I didn't feel safe there at all.

To be fair though, these cities have had most of their development in relatively recent years. They are not hotbeds of history or anything.

So, it's hard to expect too much from that.

Not in the city centre, west end or south side. The majorty of the city is safe and beautiful and yeah i´ve been to Dublin.

The east end of Glasgow is a bit run down just like you seen in every city - good areas and bad areas.
