Some places I’ve visited have inspired me with lots of posts (I’m looking at you Reykjavik and Berlin) and then there are the places I’ve been I could barely give you a few words on. They aren’t necessarily the worst places I’ve visited, it’s just that they never had the…

Oi from Lisbon – Belem Edition
Or the day I went to Belem and ate. A lot. In my continuing story of my love affair / romance from afar with Lisbon, we get down to business, well, mostly food, but there’s some buildings too, I promise. After a quick stop at the supermarket and miscommunication about…
Travel writing now vs travel writing then
It’s the end of the world if your phone battery dies on an a hike right? Well count yourself lucky you weren’t exploring hundreds of years ago – where you’d be praying not to be the next one to meet the reaper in your expedition! So, let’s delve back to the…
The Leaked WanderList: Awesome Things I’ve Already Seen & Done
When it comes to wander – or bucket – lists, I tend to add things to it once I’ve completed something rather than crossing items off. Why try to force something when you really want that realisation that slaps you in the face when something needs to be on there? Before I…
I love this infographics! Really do 🙂 I knew about the tea, that it was introduced by a Portuguese queen – fancy that??? 😀 And I’m learning some slang as well, only 4 years later. The one of things you’ll do once you move to London, so true. I still laugh in the picadilly line and I use this line frequently.
Geweldig om te lezen! Maar n half miljoen muizen in de tube O_o
These are brill! I’m hankering for a cuppa now.
Haha I love these! I’m actually from London and I didn’t know things like the mosquito info!
But the English words aren’t really correct, we call a scarf a scarf too – amongst others words that aren’t right!

Keep up the great work!
Love these infograpichs! Saving this post to my saved list on Bloglovin:D
Hahaha. Love these Infographics. really entertaining to read. Who would have though more accidents were caused by grapes on the underground than banana skins. Thanks for posting. It brightened my day.
Just popped by to let you know i have nominated you for The Very inspiring Blogger Award. You can check out my post about it here: http://www.dandelionblue.co.uk/2015/01/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award.html#more
I am hoping to go to England later this year. I hope to get to see all these places
Great stuff! I am heading to London for the first time in March, so this was all fascinating info for me. Thanks for sharing.
Lot of love for these infographics!
The facts about 40 min underground being the equivalent of 2 cigarettes is slightly worrying though! I spend two hours underground everyday to get to and home from work!

Absolutely loved these and shared them with my friends! I especially love the 4th one, Londoner’s Guide to London. Thanks for sharing!
I think I love these a little more than I should do!
I love this! It’s really fascinating!!! BUT…
THE LANGUAGE SECTION IS DEFINATELY WRONG SO I AM TAKING THE LIBERTY TO CORRECT YOU : D
I HAVE LIVED IN VARIOUS PLACES IN ENGLAND MY WHOLE LIFE SO I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!! : )
HERE IS A LIST OF WHAT YOU GOT WRONG!
British – American
Sandwich – Sandwich
Fairy cake and cupcake – cupcake
We never say peckish!!! It’s either hungry or starving or I want food! – Hungry
Cozy but waaaaayy more often swimming costume – swimsuit
Pants (we NEVER call them knickers – Panties
Scarf (I have NEVER heard anybody saying muffler? Lol) – Scarf
We tend to use stupid – Stupid
Idiot/moron (nobody really uses plonker anymore) – Idiot
Insane/mental (I have never even heard of the word range!) – Insane
We use piss off more frequently than – sod of
We use the word tramp as well as slag which is mostly referring to girls (and not so much slapper)
People don’t tend to say Ace anymore we use awesome a lot though – awesome
Bye/Goodbye/See ya (later) NOT CHEERIO NEVER EVER CHEERIO – goodbye
So gutted is used when you are super sad but normally you just say I am sad or upset – upset
Nap or rest but not kip – nap
Again; only use knackered if you are really tired normally we just say tired – Tired!
Shit more commonly – Shit
NOBODY SAYS ZONKED!!! We just say we are tired like you do! (by the looks of it).
NOBODY SAYS BEEB EITHER!!! We just say BBC like you!
NOBODY SAYS DOSH!!! WOW!!! We say money like you do!
We always say either toilet or bathroom although there are a few that say Loo – restroom
I hope you learned because that took me ages! Off for a cheeky Nando’s now!!! ; D
