I have never been to the U.K., but I would like to. It seems to be so pretty. It’s strange that I haven’t been there as I speak the language and it’s not that far from Sweden. I would like to find out which of all rumors about Britain are true and false. 🙂

We used to travel to Cheddar Gorge every two years on holiday. All I remember is that the car journey was really long, and that I didn't enjoy the walking Laughing out loud Nowadays I do see its appeal however.

Rumors like there being plumbing on the outside of houses that freezes in winter. Or that people have wallpapers and furniture with big flowers all over their houses. Or that it is often very cold inside houses due to leaky or single glass windows.

True or false? 🙂

#4 I've seen a few people with floral decor, but as styles change there's less and less of it!

But I can vouch that the houses I stay in are warm and don't leak! Maybe the old countryside cottages still have that problem!Glad

#4 The terraced houses commonly seen in places such as Manchester often get cold during the winter months, but more modern urban designs don't really have that issue anymore! The sheds in peoples gardens however... Leak all the time Laughing
