If you do, try and make it down here on a nice sunny day; it's lovely here if it's like that. You can take her to the gardens and the beach ... and all that icky romanticy stuff.

Ah yes, money, the cause of all my problems. ¬_¬

Isn't Bournemouth crawling with old people?


So yeah, I can't really think of all the places in the UK I've been, but here's a shot:

Scottish Highlands - Dornoch, Brora, Golspie etc.
Orkney Islands (Day trip)
Fife
Perth
Inverness
Dundee
Kirkcaldy, Methil, Cardenden, Buckhaven etc.
Glasgow (nasty, nasty place - in some parts, you're safer in the West Bank and I'm not kidding)
Edinburgh - I live 'ere!
St Andrews - I study 'ere!
Cambridge
Liverpool (it's got a bad image, but it's a wonderful, vibrant city - highly recommended)
London (again, another overrated craphole)
Southampton (passed through on the way to the ferry terminal)
Stratford-Upon-Avon
Warwick
Buckinghamshire
Berkshire
The Lake District
Northumberland
York
Yorkshire (been on military camps there, beautiful countryside)
Leeds
Stoke-on-Trent
Alton, Staffs.
Cumbria

Passed through Newcastle, Birmingham, Hull (don't even start)

And there's probably more, but I can't remember. If I do remember, I'll put them in this thread again.

I'm planning to hit Lincolnshire at some point (heard it's a bit shit, any thoughts?) - I know somebody who went to the same school as Margaret Thatcher.

OY!!UK etc, I'm old, & not so much of the crawling, lol.

Yes Lincolnshire could be described as you said, especially to the young, I was stationed there in the R.A.F., for about a year, when I was 19, it has it's downside, we were cut off by a blizzard with 8 foot snowdrifts, we couldn't get home for Xmas, & had to have food supplies parachuted to us, but the summer!, it was glorious, long baking days, spectacular countryside, we used to cycle beside golden cornfields, with what breeze there was, blowing past us, but I suspect that isn't your scene?

You don't drink everything. Thats a shocker, I'd figure every chance you'd get to get drunk you'd chug.

I have hardly travelled anywhere in my country. I've only left Nova Scotia once and that was to go to ontario on a grad trip about 10 years ago.

As for Nova Scotia i've been everywhere there is to be on this Province
