GETTING A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY WITH IMMIGRATION


HELLO? WHAT DO YOU KNOW?

I MOVED TO THE UK FOR A JOB AND I SEEM TO STILL BE HERE. I HAVE LIVED IN BOTH SCOTLAND AND ENGLAND AND ALSO WORKED IN NORTHERN IRELAND AND WALES. I HAVE WORKED IN OVER 400 TOWNS AND CITIES, OFTEN STAYING AT A HOTEL. I STILL VIEW MY TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES SOMEWHAT LIKE A TOURIST, SO MAYBE I CAN HELP.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT SOME OF THE CITIES OR REGIONS I HAVE VISITED, PLEASE JUST ASK.

THE UK HAS AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF PERSONAL DIVERSITY, EVEN BEFORE THEY OPENED UP THE IMMIGRATION FLOOD GATES IN 1997. NOW IT’S REALLY DIVERSE, ESPECIALLY IN LONDON. OUTSIDE OF LONDON THE ACCENTS, AND EVEN THE LANGUAGE, CAN CHANGE IN THE SPACE OF LESS THAN 10 MILES. YES, WE STILL USE MILES HERE. LOTS OF HISTORY. SOME GRETA, LIKE CASTLE. SOME NOT SO GREAT LIKE THAT TRAIN YOU ARE WAITING FOR. IT’S AT LEAST 40 YEARS OLD. WHEN IT SHOWS UP.

YOU DON’T COME HERE FOR THE WEATHER OR FOOD. YOU DO VISIT FOR THE HISTORY, VIEWS, AND RED LETTER BOXES.

ENJOY!

YES. FISH & CHIPS ARE HEALTH FOOD. ALONG WITH BEER


FOOD? GREAT FOOD? STAY IN LONDON FOR THE MOST PART. WANT GREAT BRITISH FOOD? OK, JOKE GOES:
“WHY DID THE UK BUILD THE BIGGEST EMPIRE IN THE WORLD? THEY WERE JUST LOOKING FOR A GOOD MEAL”.

THERE ARE SOME GREAT RESTAURANTS IN THE UK. AND GREAT BRITISH ONES. IF YOU CAN JUST GET PAST THE HORDES OF BAD ONES – YOU WILL EAT WELL. THIS ALSO GOES FOR OTHER CUISINES. THE FAVOURITE CUISINE IN THE UK IS INDIAN. AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO BURN YOUR MOUTH OFF TO ENJOY AT A QUALITY INDIAN RESTAURANT OR TAKEAWAY. JUST ASK FOR MILD OR MEDIUM.

I HAVE SOME GREAT RESTAURANT REVIEWS FOR YOU FROM ALL ACROSS THE UK. THE REVIEWS ARE GREAT, BUT SOMETIMES THE RESTAURANT IS BAD. PLEASE DO NOT EAT AT THE BAD ONES. THEY ARE OFTEN UNCLEAN, UNFRIENDLY, THE FOOD IS A JOKE AND THEY TAKE CUSTOMERS AWAY FROM THE FAMILIES AND SMALL BUSINESSES THAT WORK 7 DAYS A WEEK, SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS AND CARE ABOUT YOU.

CHILD SACRIFICE. NOT AS COMMON AS IT USED TO BE.


CHILD KILLINGS? MASS BOMBINGS? PILLAGING? PLAGUES? TORTURE?
YOU CAN GET ALL OF THESE IN THE TOWER OF LONDON ALONE. THE UK HAS A LOT OF GREAT MUSEUMS DETAILING SOME VERY GRISLY HISTORY. THEY ALSO HAVE DESIGN, TRANSPORT, HERITAGE AND SCIENCE MUSEUMS. MANY ARE NOW EVEN FREE! AND AS YOU DRIVE ALONG, OR TAKE THE TRAIN, YOU CAN SEE STUNNING ARCHITECTURE, ANCIENT WALLS, THATCHED COTTAGES, AND ENJOY LOCAL FAIRS.

Please note: My Nephews still have their heads, although one wanted to see ‘how sharp’ the sword was on the day. It was sharp enough.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:GREAT BRITAIN. HOME OF THE LARGEST EMPIRE EVER
  • Cons:TRYING TO DILUTE IT'S OWN LEGACY. WEATHER SUCKS
  • In a nutshell:IT'S THE UK. INNNIT?
