My favourite part of Britain

I'm kind of stuck with Bomo, really - you are when it's the place you were born. However, Bournemouth's a very pleasant place to revisit and I have a whole load of memories. Last year I spent two months living with my parents there, when I did a flying course. I also had my stag night at the Tunnel Club on Glenfern Road this year. That week I'd been in Paris, Berlin, Milan, some other sexy European city and I found Bomo so much more rocky, more happening. I was born in Pokesdown and that's my favourite area. Bournemouth truly is the San Francisco of the south.
