I've visited the U.K. Once a long time ago and it was mainly in London but it seemed like a busy kind of crowded place to me. Although the people were very polite and nice and the food good also. So much history before your eyes ! It looks like a busy place that is constantly moving. Piccadilly Circus looked to me like a drivers nightmare ! I think life there would be nice except the weather. On that, I'll pass.
I've never been there, but dreary and rainy is what comes to mind when I think about the UK. Not sure how factual that is, it's just what I think about! As far as people....I'm sure you're just people! As is everyone! Always some nice and some not so nice in any part of the world!
I've met many online friends from the UK but never been there. My great grandparents were from Scotland. I understand I've got relatives over there that could be cousins, to my late grandma and some could have had families that are related to me.
For me UK......I say as I see in movies it's a very busy place( never visited) , people mind their own business, they don't care what he or she is doing! It's like a world full of people who care for themselves and that is a good thing in one way! The country is good in ways and not that good in other! Just like every other country, it has its cons and pros!
For me UK is like a very costly, rich and very busy place. I have been to London once as our head office is in UK.
