I often wonder where my fascination with England and the English language comes from. It might be due to its rich literature, the clever sense of humour, the quaint cosiness of English villages and landscapes, or even its quirky island culture.
England is a land of paradoxes:
- where pudding isn't necessarily pudding
- where the left side is the right one
- where people will apologise when you're the one bumping into them
- and where politeness is key but it's okay to ask a waiter whether he has 'Spotted Dick' for you.
England is one of my favourite travel destinations. Through the years, I've met amazing people there and discovered fascinating cities and beautiful countryside.
Today I want to share a few of my favourite travel memories.
