Lifestyle: 10 Things Why The UK Is Awesome

10 Lifestyle Reasons Why The UK Is Awesome

1. Nowhere in this world will you spent so much money on clothes, DVDs and other random but beautiful stylish things than in the UK. Those Primark/ASOS hauls, cinema trips and eating outs are legendary.

2. A trip down to your local cineworld will end up in a triple feature. Spent the day successfully.

3. Festivals are actually fun. Music you usually don't listen to sounds amazing live performed, girls wear flowers and dress up nicely, the general vibe is friendly to make that festival an unforgettable memory. You feel invincible and have the summer of your lifetime, which is a welcoming change to the German heavy metal/goth and alternative rock noise that you've avoided for years.

4. Brits are very stylish, tasteful and dress well. You won't see any weird fringes, multi-coloured hair or bling bling nose piercings. People are actually interested in fashion and won't give you looks when you 'come out' as a fashionista.

5. FREE Public Wifi EVERYWHERE is no longer a luxury, but a reality. You can finally access ANY internet website, watch any TV show and listen to Youtube videos without being restricted by GEMA.

6. 'How are you?' 'Hope you're well!' 'Speak to you soon lovely'. People are so nice and interested in you which is refreshing to 'Where did you get that internship from?' 'Let's go containering and boofing' 'Sorry nerd, you can't sit with us'.

7. The moment you bite into your cheddar cheese and ham sandwich, followed by a clotted cream and strawberry jam scone. PRICELESS.

8. Nothing feels more pleasant to me than to wake up to the sound of the English language. British accents are to die for - yes, even the strong Black Country accent.

9. Life in the UK gets never boring. There are so many possibilities and opportunities around, you'll be sorted easily. No matter how much life might bring you down, it will all work out fine for you in the end somehow, just keep going.

10. There's no place like London. Enough said.

Thank you so much for reading today’s post. Hope you’ll join me on my next adventure. Are you dreaming of a life in the UK, too? Are you an expat and love living abroad? Which things am I missing that make the UK a great place to live in? Do you have a country you romanticise?

Till next time,

  1. Aww that makes me proud to call myself a Brit! Afternoon tea is The.Best. !! xx

  2. I'm British and I'm thrilled you love my homeland as much as I do!
    My ancestors have lived in England since 1066 so I am extremely proud to be British.

    So pleased that you love it here. Great post. And welcome! xxxx

  3. I've been living in the UK for 5 years now and I also really love this country and already consider it to be my own. Love how British people are generally polite and friendly and London is indeed the best. So much to see and do... hard to get bored like you said. :) x

  4. This is a great list! Don't quite agree with number 4 though - I see lots of multi coloured hair where I live! I agree that life here never gets boring though, there is always something going on and it's so much fun! I've convinced myself that Spain is the place to live, I'd love to go there to teach English one day!

  5. Awww Lovely, I'm a proud Brit in that case :) Glad you love it over here! <3

    Serene xoxo

  6. I'm very proud to be British! Just sometimes wished I lived in London!

  7. You've certainly been to the wrong German festivals, there are great non-heavy metal ones. ;)

  8. "there is no place like london" indeed!! ahh I love this kind of posts!!
    I lived in Durham (aka. Winterfell) for a year and here's what I learned, let me know if you agree!! haha


  9. Lovely post about UK! I'm definitely proud to be British :)


  10. I love London too :) Never in a million years did I think I would live 20 mins away :)

  11. Thank you for your interesting post - I actually moved to Germany and experienced quite the opposite here. People are lovely too and if they ask me where I got that internship from, they ask because they are genuinely interested and don't have ulterior motives.
    Experiences, however, might differ.
