Plus I thought it was like New York City, except foggier. And the food was expensive, so I ate tea sandwiches all week and lost 5 lbs. (I'm already skinny, those were 5 lbs I didn't have to lose!)
But the smaller cities and villages just have so much character and culture in them, it's really interesting to see how people live there. I thought the same thing when we went to France and Italy.
What would you say are some of the interesting differences you've seen in the UK?
I'm just so curious how you guys see us from the outside!
And yeah, I come from small country towns and i've both loved and hated them for various reasons at different points in my life.
I'm much happier in Bristol at this stage
It's such a great city, so much character. Always lots creative and interesting things going on.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
