I wanted to share that list today, as well as some photos from my time at Stonehenge and in Bath, England, a few weeks ago. Of course, some of the dissimilarities are very obvious, and others are things I didn’t expect before arriving in Scotland. Continue reading “Wee Differences Between the UK and the USA”
