Things I’ve Learned Since Moving to London, Part II

Because this is a never-ending learning experience…

1.) The British love fireworks.

2.) You say “sorry” for everything. Really, you apologize all the time.

3.) Christmas is a HUGE thing here. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t have Thanksgiving to celebrate.

4.) There is a difference between a bus and a coach. (A bus is what you ride around the city, while a coach is a luxury bus that you take from one city to another.)

5.) Splitting checks at restaurants is really simple, as they bring the card scanner right to the table for you.

6.) English food isn’t what popular culture would have you think.

7.) Wifi here sucks.

8.) Despite the bad wifi, the BBC and ITV iplayers are much more user friendly than any streaming platform in the US.

9.) Soy milk is “soya” milk.

10.) Picking up the way they say “yeah” is really easy. I may or may not come back home sounding like a Brit.

      I’ve found myself saying “sorry” much more often as a result!
