"Much more than just London" United Kingdom by christine.j

United Kingdom Travel Guide: 102,759 reviews and 259,996 photos

Update July 2010:
Cotswolds on your own

My favourite place for travel is the UK, maybe because the first time I had to find my way on my own was in London when I was 13. At this time I spoke German and French only, but I managed and was very proud of myself. Since then I've been back lots and lots of times,in the last years mostly to other places apart from London. There is so much to see and do in the UK.

In August 2009 I met VT member Leics - Jane - who showed me Peterborough Cathedral, another one of the magnificent cathedrals in the UK.

From Scotland...

    I can't imagine trying to, say, get around in Germany when I was 13 and not knowing German, so I can't possibly imagine your UK experience! I'm glad you liked it well enough to keep going back.
