ANGELA & BRIAN

IF (DUE TO COVID) FOREIGN HOLIDAYS WERE BANNED ~ WHERE WOULD YOU HOLIDAY AT HOME ?




HOLIDAYS IN THE UK ~ PARADISE ~ BRIAN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOURISM IS IMPORTANT ~ To the UK GNP
It accounts for 2% ~ In SPAIN its 5% you see !
People go to SPAIN for Sangria - Sand & SUN
Poeple come here for CULTURE ~ UK Weather isnt FUN
So if I must stay in the UK
In a Hotel for a Culture Week
I would go to Liverpool
Scouse is easier than GREEK !
And if I have another WEEK
I would go to WALES
Im a Mountain Walks & a Small Trains Geek
Snowdonia a Paradise ~ Weather comes in PAILS !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for visit ! If you had to holiday in Your Own
Country ~ where would you choose ?????????????
Please add a POEM telling us WHERE & WHY (anyLength or Style)
If you*re in USA you have 50 different Countries (STATES) to visit !

ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT ~ HEAVEN ON EARTH ~ BRIAN
***************************************
When GOD created Planet Earth to be a Habitation
For MANKIND ~ He wanted to create a Place that ~
Was just like HEAVEN ! Not to hot in Summer ~
Not too cold in Winter ~ And plent of RAIN ~ to
Keep it Green & Beautiful ~ ALL YEAR ROUND !
************************************?
GOD started in MIDDLE with a Grassy Hill & Lake
We call it Grassmere ! All the Major Lakes &
Peaks flow out from Grassmere ~ Spokes on Wheel
See the Map of the Lake District ~ shown above !
There is nowhere else like it on Earth it is a
Mountain Range on a Human Scale ! SCAFELL PIKE
3200 feet ~ up & down in one Day ! WINDERMERE
11 MILES LONG - 1 MILE WIDE - 220 FEET DEEP
You can swim up & down in a Day - With a BOAT !
It is the Human Scale that makes The Lake District
Such a popular Holiday Resort ~ Unlike the Rockies
And the Hymalayas ~ Too big ~ Too dangerous
Friends of ours in OTTAWA CANADA have a Cottage
In Coniston and come for Two Weeks every Year !
To cut a long Story Short we are hiring a VW
Camper Van for TWO WEEKS in The Lake District
At Christmas ~ We are guaranteed SNOW in KESWICK
*****************************************
Thanks for visit ~ If you live in the UK and
have never visited the Lake District ~ Book
two weeks Holiday ~ Hire a Camper Van & make
KESWICK your first stay (3 days) & plan the rest
Love & Blessing ANGELA & BRIAN & SMOKEY 💛💛💛
The Beauty of a VW VAN is we can take SMOKEY

FER A WEE BREAK I* THE UK WE WOULD GAE TAE SCOTIA
TAE EDINBURGH FER THE COVIC 19 FESTIVAL AL FRESCO !
******************************************
GAEIN* TAE SCOTIA ~ frae Essex is like gaein*
Tae anither Planet ~ especially if like Rabbie
Burns (The Immortal Bard) they address You im
Auld Scots fer Auld Lang Syne ! An* bid ye farewell
Wi *Lang may yer lum reek !* Long may yer
Chimney smoke * Yer*ll be needin* a Scots ~
English


THE FOURTH PART OF THE UK WE CAN VACATION IN
DURING *RESTRICTIONS* IS NORTH IRELAND (1921
2 MILLION INHABITANTS ~ MAINLY PROTESTANT) WE
MAY STILL BE ABLE TO GET INTO SOUTH IRELAND
(1948 5.5 MILLION INHABITANTS ~ MAINLY CATHOLIC)
WITH UK PASSPORT. S IRELAND IS FIVE TIMES BIGGER
THAN N IRELAND & IS STILL A MEMBER OF THEy EU !
THE VIDEO SHOWS IRISH DANCING LEGS ONLY NO ARMS
***************************************
IRELAND N or S Is a Great Country to visit.
The Irish have a great sense of Humour &
Conversation (called the CRAC) They love to
Sing & Dance and every Bar will have a Wee Band
with People coming & going & sitting in ! The
GODS ensure the Instruments & Voices are ALWAYS
In tune with perfect Harmony. Their favourite
Tipple is Guiness which you can eat with a spoon
They love SCONES with a mega POT of TEA ~ And
Irish Stew whixh is like Scouse. The recipe
varies with what ever you*ve got in the Pantry.
The IRISH ACCENT is very musical and much Easier to understand than the Scots !
Sometimes they confuse their words on purpose !
Like the Man in Dublin who said to me *Good
Mornin* Mister ~ Could yer borrow me a POUND*
Think about it ! If you get a chance to Go to
Ireland dont hesitate JUST GO !
****************************************
Thanks for visit please add a Poem about where
You would like to holiday in your own Country'
Lve to all wherever you are Brian & Angela XOX

    I think you'll find Ireland is not actually in the UK these days.

    • ANGELA & BRIAN

      THANKS BARRY ~ BRIAN HERE ~ I agree and am corrected ! I was born & raised in Liverpool (no mean City) consquently there was always a lot of Irish Influence. If we got on a Boat from Liverpool to Ireland we didnt really caree if it docked in DUBLIN (Rwpublic of Ireland) or BELFAST (N Ireland part of the UK !) It was all Ireland to US. Angela (holding a Spanish Passport) and Me (Having a great fondness for the whole of Ireland) voted to stay in the Common Market ! Now the UK is OUT & the Republic of Ireland IN there will be border Problems. The Republic of Ireland ceased to be part of the UK in 1916 ! It would be better for everyone if IRELAND became ONE COUNTRY ~ All in the EU ~ AMEN

      Love ~ Joy ~ Peace ~ To YOU & YOURS
      Angela - Brian - Smokey Cat ! ! ! .

        You are incorrect.

        1916 was the date of the Easter Rebellion, which failed and its leaders were executed for treason by the British.
        After a Civil War, The Irish Free State seceded from the UK in 1922 and (under the Anglo-Irish Treaty) six NE counties of the province of Ulster remained within the UK, becoming Northern Ireland.

        "Eire" remained the Irish Free State until 1948 when it was renamed the Republic of Ireland.

        And that is how matters remain to this day: 26 counties in the RoI and 6 in NI.
