People often ask why I’m obsessed with Britain.
The answer is: sticky toffee pudding.
Well, sticky toffee pudding and a lot of other (arguably less important) things. Castles, for example. And self-deprecating humour. And the freedom to traipse across fields full of sheep.
With the Olympics/Diamond Jubilee double-whammy happening this year, I think it’s the perfect time for Queen Elizabeth to have a go at hurdles. I also think it’s the perfect time to show you exactly what has kept me coming back to Blighty again and again, for a grand total of nearly two years of travel.
You’ll be getting plenty of London elsewhere, so I’ve chosen to focus on what’s awesome outside of the capital.
I don’t claim to be a living guidebook to England, Scotland or Wales – there are many mysterious stone circles I have yet to visit – but I hope you will think of this as a personal chronicle of the things I’ve seen, experienced and ingested, all with great affection.
Prepare the custard!
