So... I'm reading a report that came out today which states England is now officially the worse place to live in Europe. Apparently we're very grumpy about our quality of life and the high cost of living and 1 in 10 of us is seriously considering emigrating to either France or Spain. We also have the lowest holiday entitlement in Europe as well as having one of the highest retirement ages. Fair enough, but I bet you something - if we actually had some sun during summer, we would probably cheer up. We're miserable because it always rains. The Index covers amongst other things actual hours of sunshine - and for us that's about 17 hours a year. Well, hopefully for this weekend, we'll score pretty highly! BBQs to the ready...
But seriously, I love our green and pleasant land and even though I've travelled about a bit, I always enjoy coming home - shafted or no shafted.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
