I have a crazy infactuation with all things British……But dont blame me as I lived there for over ten years..
As a kid I grew up watching Mr Bean and Faulty Towers and fell in love with the British sense of humour. So when I decided to spread my wings and fly London was no surprise. In my head I had visions of snow , fog , Royal Family and Tower Bridge.During my exploration I fell more in love with Britain….
The famous pubs, museums,double decker buses and the English accent all became a normal much loved feature of my everyday life as I explored the streets of London.
Each part of Britain is so unique and delightful with its own regional dialects , customs and inhabitants. But the thing that struck me was how diverse it was and was a definate melting pot of cultures. Each of these cultural groups brought with them their traditions and food.
One of my greatest life lessons was realizing I had such a great rich culture coming from South Africa but was totally smitten by the Brits.
Now days I still watch BBC programmes , buy all things British I see in local shops, hang on to London memories and get super excited when friends there send me a care package……
