We’ll be in England from September 5-19
I’ve been visiting England since 2004. I sometimes regret not moving there when I met Andrew. I pretty much forced him to move to the US since I had already moved across the country earlier in my life and I wasn’t prepared for another long distance move or upheaval. I have spent most of my visits in Northern England. Way back in the summer of 2003 I worked for an amazing summer camp called Hidden Valley Camp. I met a few cheeky Englishmen who I stayed friends with (and luckily still am!) Well, long story short, I met my husband at one of their weddings…in Mexico of all places! I am looking forward to heading back to my husband’s home country and seeing friends.
My favorite thing about England is the people. I am a bit biased because I have had the chance to meet some great friends from across the pond. My second favorite thing about England is the food. I have heard a lot of Americans complain about the food choices in England, and I just don’t get it. I find most of the meals you can eat out to be incredibly filling and almost every meal is bordering on being labeled comfort food. Andrew is probably looking forward to having a full English breakfast. He’s not had a proper one since 2014, poor guy. You just can’t get that kind of bacon and sausage in America. Our eggs in the US are drastically different.
I doubt we will do much site seeing in England since we’ll still be prepping for our trip, but I can’t wait to see my mother in law, catch up with friends, and share a pint at the pub with my husband!
