Its the only place I've ever lived, so I'd have to say yes! I love it in Yorkshire, lots of fantastic countryside to ride in, not to mention a large variety of competitions both locally and further a field.

I too am from England...but now live in the United States!

I was born and grew up in Cheshire,England.My family still live there.Now I live in Minnesota,USA.I miss loads of things about England...mostly the food and television...and being able to get to most places either on foot or by bus or train.And I also miss the side walks...or pavements as they're called in England.Not many side walks in the USA if you live in the suburbs!But there are many things I LOVE about living in Minnesota...and the main thing is my hubby!

I would love to live in the land my ancestors lived in and some of my close family still lives in. Is there history present in almost all of England or just some certain parts?

Blackpool. I go there for the day now and again, have stayed the odd night too. Blackpool is the Las Vegas of England.
It has a smaller version of the Eiffell Tower (sorry if spelt wrong). Nice place. Great countryside surrounding it.

I have a question about England. Do they drink coffee or just tea and would they laugh at me for wanting iced tea? Not a big hot tea drinker but have to have my coffee and iced tea

Wonderful so you know about it :o Yeah I think my aunt lives in the countryside because there is alot of land in the picture I saw. Well I will be trying to set up a trip out there. I want to visit her but I want to go to Lancashire, where she and my grandmother grew up. From the pictures I've seen on the internet it looks like a magical place. Would you have any idea how much it would cost me to stay near Blackpool and maybe the cost of food? Just wondering. Every little bit helps. Thanks

Whoa your speaking to the coffee addict here. Lol. We drink lots of coffee and tea. I'm not a tea fan, but I will have the odd mug now and again. I certainly dont drink it from a tea cup and saucer, good old mug for me. Iced tea is widely available too. You thinking of coming over for a visit Vida? :)
