Every Country has its badparts, its gripes, and security cameras everywhere.

Nice pics and nice dog, Razza. What a lot of people who have never been to Britain don't realize is how misleading the density statistics are.

There is a lot, and I mean a lot of open country, exquisitely beautiful bucolic countryside, between the cities, and even the small rural villages are rather dense and town-like on a very small footprint, so every landscape is not dotted with evenly spaced houses on 5 acres each.

It is not called a "green and pleasant land" for nothing.

I'll be moving there so I guess I don't find it highly disturbing.

The population is also concentrated heavily to the south-east. Even there you can find endless rolling fields. Then in northern-England, Wales and Scotland, there's large areas of countryside with very low population densities. Some of these areas are among the most sparsely populated places in Europe.

Overall I think people are just unable to comprehend how large the world is. Even if somewhere looks small on a map, as the UK does, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is small. High-speed modern transport has distorted our perception of reality in this regard.

I would probably receive some British hatred but I won't, I would never live in the UK. My 1st reason is the climate. My 2nd reason is: I don't like the British lifestyle. My 3rd reason is the left handed driving.

I definetly would prefer to stay in Argentina or Chile rather than living in the UK. Or in Portugal. As Warszawa says, much better to live in France, and France and the UK have a very similar economy but the south of France has a much better climate and lifestyle. I also don't like some things which are illegal in the UK, I won't feel myself in a full democracy/freedom. I mean, sometimes (3-4 times a year) I like to light up a joint and in the UK that's a criminal offence. There are CCTV cameras everywhere, i'ts like wow are we living in George Orwell's 1984 novel? Can't I move without being recorded?? No thanks...

I also don't find much interest in England specially, for me seems pretty monotonous excepting for cute little towns and London and Manchester. Btw, London is one of the most beautiful cities worldwide.

I've also heard that the meat in the UK tastes worse than from most of the other European countries, heard it by Spaniards, Italians, Frenchmans and Dutch people who visitted the UK (specifically London)

I could find some of this on the internet too: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/c...uch_different/ maybe because the people are acclimated to another meats?
