Exactly. Currently we live in Texas and leave during the hot summers. If we lived in the UK, we'd leave during the winters.

I spent a few weeks one winter, and then a few weeks for a summer over in UK. I never realized how far north it was, summer was really nice and days lasted forever. Winter was dreary, cold, and often wet and the daylight hours...short (I think), didn't see much of them. I was not in or near London (can't say where I was), but the people are really nice out in the country. Just remember, we Americans are the ones with the accents, not the British....they've been speaking that way long before Columbus. As in most places, you can learn alot from the local bartenders at the countrysides may pubs (great beer, locally brewed and cidar if that your thing). Overall, a nice country.
