Welcome to our monthly feature! We have a brilliant travel blogger who writes about cruising, eating and adventures to start.
I think growing up in the UK, especially if you live in a small industrial town like I do, it’s easy to forget the great stuff about our country. I’m not talking about the political stuff, the healthcare, the emergency services – but the people. The history. The quirks you see in each area of the country.
I’ve grown up in the North West, and I particularly love that proud identity Northeners carry with them – it’s all banter of course, but we are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet – we make the best brews and we’re not afraid to chat to strangers on trains!
Plus can we take a moment to talk about how beautiful this country is? It’s easy to forget when it’s grey and drizzly, but even on those dull days we’ve got beautiful amazing historic towns and villages and rolling countryside, alongside thriving modern cities.
