A to Z Blogging: England, I Love You


Killing two birds with one stone today by writing my A to Z Challenge on England and thus I can also link up to Joy's new weekly England feature called British Isles Friday. (And yeah, I know it's Saturday now, but hey, it happens.)

So England. What a lovely place you are! You have the coolest actors with the coolest accents. And you have some awesome history in your cities, and some beautiful countryside. Everyone says you have boring food, but I beg to differ. Fish and chips, and digestives and cream and scones. Right? Awesome. Some day England, I think I just might go live in you for awhile.

As a sort of "I love England" overview post, today I give you pictures from two different trips, one in 2003 and one in 2013. Here are just a few famous things England has to offer.

Red telephone booths.

Big Ben

Abbey Road

The London Eye

Buckingham Palace

Tower Bridge

The Tube
Roman Baths

Country churches surrounded by creepy graveyards

Glastonbury Tor

The Shambles in York

Pubs!
The Tower of London

The British Museum
There's so much to do here! Stay tuned for more on my love for England in the next few months.

  2. I live in England for nearly two years now and looking at your pictures reminds me of the excitement I felt when I first stopped by (most) of those spots you have up. To date, my favourite place is Bath. :D

    1. Christiana: Bath is amazing. We needed to spend a bit more time there though. Only scratched the surface. We did it right after we arrived so we were still suffering jet lag too. :(

    1. Lisa: I still want to see Ireland too. We managed Scotland on one of these trips, but not Ireland. Sigh.
