Areas Visited: Salisbury, Liverpool, Carlisle, Scarborough. (2006)

England is a country filled with castles, whether it is a large manion with gardens owned by a wealthy nobleman or the ruins of something ancient. Although they speak English, the different accents and some alternate pronounciations can sometimes be a bit tricky. Renting a car and driving is easy to do, although it does take a little getting used to driving on the "wrong side" of the road and all those "bloody" round-abouts. England is quite a bit more expensive than the U.S.

I recommend visiting England to see how many castles you can explore while enjoying fish and chips with vinegar.
