I've been living here for 6 years and I fall in love with it more as time goes
  1. People are so down to earth. I know on American TV they are sometimes portrayed as snobby and there is a sheltered minority that's like that but it's honestly rare, most people I meet take pleasure in the simple things in life

  2. Keep calm and carry on really exists here. Most people are content with where they're at in life even if it's not their ideal. They just carry on and have a laugh about it when things aren't going great

  3. People think being Canadian is cool 😎
  4. Food is normal portions and usually not processed
    It's so easy to get freshly farmed products!
  5. When someone is rude or disrespectful it's usually because they are uneducated, not to be malicious
    I think this distinction is important
  6. Chocolate is delicious

    Makes North American chocolate taste like trash in comparison
  7. Mostly everyone gets along no matter how different their personalities
  8. Carvery

    Aka Sunday roast. Yorkshire pudding😍
  9. Everyone has their own sense of style
    Giphy
    I don't particularly bother with fashion but I like that everyone is dressed so differently!
  10. People are generally unassuming and don't have a sense of entitlement
    (Mostly)
  11. The humour is amazing. Just a constant stream of banter. You can't find anything like it anywhere else
  12. The country is not big but it's full of urban, rural and beautiful countryside areas— you can be in any within like 2 hours:

  17. Most people exercise
    It encourages you when it's the norm
  18. Public transportation is great. You can absolutely get by without a car

    I love trains! 🚂
  19. The accent/culture changes if you drive for like 20 minutes
  20. So may castles!!! 🏰
  21. The NHS is the best healthcare system in the world.
    I am very passionate about it. Its far from perfect— no system is. But it really is set up in the best interest of the public and I hope it stays that way 😢
  22. I will probably add more as I think of them. This has been the most wonderful home for me ❤️🇬🇧
