After four years of living in England there remains one element of English life and culture that I still find somewhat baffling – tea.
There are few visitor attractions that I can recommend more enthusiastically than the Eden Project. I would visit it everyday if I could
My mother and I headed up Oxford Street for a bit of shopping, stopping everywhere that caught our fancy, weaving our way through the throngs of Londoners and tourists that had taken to the streets on the sunny Saturday morning.
I know, I know, surely it can’t be possible. England is cold and rainy all the time. I’ve certainly complained about that fact my fair share (see here, and here for evidence).
You’ve heard it all before from me. The summer of 2012 has been absolutely miserable here in the UK, and after a few days of decent weather at the beginning of September we have now been unceremoniously plunged into the rain and cold of autumn.
