13 First Impressions UK

Above is a video explaining my thirteen first impressions of the United Kingdom (UK). These range from impressions of the people, tea, manners, bathrooms, shop names and a few other aspects. I arrived in England for the first time two years ago after travelling across America solo. My impressions are slightly random and have definitely changed in the passed two years of living here in Britain.

Coming from New Zealand, my impressions may be different to others and I would love to hear more. I love travelling and have two other similar videos on Canada and the USA. As well as, a video reaction to what people say about British people.

Please have a look at the video and let me know what you think. Any additions from fellow travellers or residents alike?

13 Of The Most Annoying Things My Dog Does

From the bad to the worst – all the nuisances do not take away from his adorableness. Ways dogs will change your life and find ways how to annoy you.

13 Reasons Why You Should Travel Across America By Train

Advice on train travel and reasons why you should use this form of transport to get across the USA. America by train has a lot to offer and is a unique way to see more of the beautiful country while travelling across states from point A to B and even Z. There are that many rail options.

Train travel tips and thoughts on the concept. Based on my experiences a little over two years ago on long train rides and journeys of up to 76 hours as a solo traveller. Included in this video is a tour of one of the Amtrak cabins I stayed on during my journey. This one even had a full bathroom! There are also pictures that do not quite do it justice, but worth a quick look to convince you to cross the country via railway.

Thank you for watching and reading.

See you on Friday! Xx
