Chelsea in London is a very expensive, if not the most expensive part of London. Read Marie's latest most interesting post on Sloane Square and Chelsea in London as she continues her Tube line investigations. Chelsea in greater Melbourne was once known as a rough outer seaside suburb. Maybe it is not so rough now, but not too many social climbers aspire to live in Melbourne's Chelsea.
Camberwell is not a highly desirable London suburb, yet our Camberwell in our bible belt is ever so desirable. Pubs are illegal in our Camberwell. If a restaurant wants to serve alcohol, it must go to a council vote of local residents. (this may have changed recently).
I have struggled for years to get the locations of local towns Winchelsea and Whittlesea correct. We drove through Winchelsea on the way to our nephew's wedding, so that is finally sorted in my head. Not so Braybrook and Braeside. Without confidence I say, Braybrook is south and Braeside is north. No, it must be the other way around. Dunno, really.
Then there are our tongue twisting Aboriginal place names and it took me years to get the pronunciation of Wurundjeri Way (say it as it is spelt) correct, and of course I misspell it too and had to Google to get that right.
Oh well, at least we never adopted difficult Welsh place names and don't have to get our tongues around such weird place names such as our found in Wales. John Gray of Wales has twice had local people pronounce the name of the village where he lives, and I am really none the wiser. This is the latest effort for Trelawnyd.
To think, the Welsh language was dying out and some fool government has resurrected it!
