5 things I don’t miss about England

  • Trying to figure out which train ticket one needs for the given journey on those automatic touchscreen machines.
  • Wet feet and soggy trouser/ skirt bottoms from walking around in the rain & feeling cold to the bone.
  • Getting locked out of the e-mail/ online banking/ other kind of internet account AGAIN!
  • Buildings, buildings, roads, in your face unavoidable consumerism, hoards of people, all squashed, rushing, towering. The concrete jungle. The colour grey.
  • It being normal to dry laundry on the radiators.
