England: Town and Country

Traditional. Queen. Tea. Castles. These are probably a few of the words that come to mind when England is mentioned.

But are we wrong to stereotype the country in such a manner?

During my recent trip to the Mother Country, I was reminded that it is with good reason England is associated with these words.  They love the Queen, they know how to do tea right (cream tea anyone?), and the country is not lacking for castles.

And it’s absolutely splendid. Splendid I thought.
