I live 20 minutes from Cambridge which is also beautiful and a famous city but much smaller and quainter than London. And you really ought to visit Scotland!

I have been to Scotland, England (obviously lol), France, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Hungary and Sardinia. Not very many countries yet but I hope to see more! Sardinia is an Italian island but it feels so old fashioned and basic.

That is interesting you think New York is pretty. See, I've never really seen true skyscrapers like you have in America. There are some in London but not many. What state do you live in, out of interest?

We were only in London for four days because it was only a long layover, so we mainly did the big tourist stuff. We did the London Eye (which was spectacular), British Museum, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and that sort of thing. Cambridge and your town sound very pretty. I'd love to see outside of London and see things tourists don't usually see. Are there little seaside towns like in movies?

Wow, you've been to so many countries! I've only been to a few different countries, but lots of states. I think it's funny that you said you haven't been to many, but ask pretty much every person in the US and they would say you've been to tons. Just a cultural difference, I guess. Most people you talk to here have never even traveled outside the US.

The states I've been to are Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., New York, Michigan, Indiana, Texas, West Virginia, Tennessee, Washington, and California. And I live in North Carolina. I like NC because were close to both mountains and beach. I live in a pretty average city, though.

I know someone who was on Survivor, and she said it wasn't scripted. But it went through a lot of editing. They could edit together stuff said days apart and make it sound like a single conversation.

Huh, that's crazy. I always knew there was something fishy about Reality Shows.

That's interesting about Survivor! I always thought that one was pretty real, which I guess the most part it is.

Haha they are fishy. Like for one time they where forced to crash a party, they did not want to. I am not going to reveal the name because I am not comfortable sharing my state but It's one of those shows with dramatic people. The girl lives in a HUGE house. I think It mostly focuses on the moms. I will admit I feel it's OK, because they are entertaining. .

Is it on something like MTV?

Yes. It is a much like Housewives of Beverly Hills, but not in Beverly Hills. Just went on website for the first time. Really weird seeing a girl I go to school with. We used to be good friends in elementary. We don't hate each other now, just don't really hang out. It's on the Style network.

I could see how you could not like it, but I loved NYC. I bet too at the holiday season it is even better. Although quite ironic, Central Park was my favorite part. If you go, although it's not my favorite brand, I enjoyed the Juicy Store. It was almost all pink, very chic, and three stories. Also being a theatre kid, it was exciting to see a Broadway show. Thinking working behind the scenes in movies when I grow up as a job possibility, touring the NBC studio was cool. We got to walk on a news set and see the SNL stage.
Boston is AWESOME out an hour drive to Boston, Massachusetts. Those Northern states are tiny!) I love history, and many parts of Boston are like the colonial times. There will be random old buildings next to skyscrapers. Where I live that does not happen a lot. I love history which also led to my liking of the city. Like New York, the subways where cool to me. Boston also has yummy sea food if you like fish. If you can visit Cape Cod. It's a very picturesque beach town.
One of my favorite cities I have visited is Washington DC, America's capital. If you like American history, it is a must do. They have really cool free museums.
With people being tan, most are pale in my city. But that just might be where I live. But I do live in the southern half of the US. I find things on television are VERY different than what it actually is. My classmate is on a reality show, and most of the stuff is scripted. A lot of things can be true also. In relation, California is fun too
Sorry this was long. Thinking about travel makes me happy...
I have been to France and Italy and I urge you to GO GO GO!!! They are both amazing countries, and have such a wonderful feel. Parts are extraordinarily basic and are a culture shock. When we went to Italy, parts were so basic- and the supermarkets only sold the essentials- no ready meals or desserts or anything- just plain ingredients. The houses were often just shacks too. The movie Ratatouille really shows the French culture and it is amazing! Italians are noticeably more aggressive lol. Just the way they do things and shove you out the way. Haha.

Funny, because although I want to go to China and Japan, I am not that inspired at the moment to go to Australia. I don't know really why, but it seems quite similar to the UK.

What exactly is the Juicy Store? The name sounds a little suspicious lol! Here, a shop called Juicy sells loads of hideous and revealing outfits but I am guessing it is not linked to your Juicy Store.

Wow, you are so ambitious! I wouldn't be brave enough to try and pursue a career like that, well maybe. Lol. You're lucky knowing what you want to do, I don't really. I am taking Government and Politics for A levels next academic year and we cover America so I think after that I will want to visit Washington DC.

Oh my goodness, you are making me really want to visit all of these places! I have heard of Cape Cod and it sounds wonderful. I would love to explore America but sadly it is not in the budget.

What state do you live in? Do you have a southern accent? I'm curious, lol.

I get you about television. FTR, it bugs me that British people are literally always the villains on US television shows!!! And also that all of us speak really posh, most Brits have terrible accents... Lol.

I love the London Eye!!! It is best when it's sunset- you go up in the daytime and come down in the dark. I've never been to the British Museum weirdly that I can remember. Do you have palaces like Buckingham Palace in the US?

We do have beautiful and quaint seaside towns, that's what I love is that we have so much history. Often with little piers and cafes selling rock candy. Many are touristy though. To me, it's the little towns and villages that are the best, the ones that aren't flocked with tourists. We have a huge Victorian Manor house down the road from us, still furnished as if it were from 150 years ago, and you can walk through it. It's so fascinating.

I guess it's a little different because America is so huge, whereas the UK is tiny and you can get the euro tunnel to France for £15. From there you have a gateway to the rest of Europe. It is nice to be so close to everything however at the moment I am in love with the US lol.

You have been to so many states!!! Are they all quite different or rather similar? I would imagine California is different to Texas, for example. I've heard that in California people just casually get plastic surgery and show up for work the next day or two! Here, that seems really unusual. OMG you live in North Carolina that is my dream state!!! Well actually I can't decide between NC, SC and PA. I wanted to take a holiday to the Carolinas a while ago. The weather seems perfect, cold at winter and hot at summer!!! And I didn't even know thee were mountains there haha! I guess I forget that most Americans are not close to the beach, wow!

Ugh, don't get me started on that hideous monstrosity of a TV programmer lol! I hate reality TV. And I hate people trying to get famous using it. Housewives of Beverly Hills is annoying but the Kardashians really bugs me. I have watched Toddlers and Tiaras though and found it entertaining and interesting as I had never seen anything like that before!

I want to go. It's just finding the money to go Hopefully during college. I'd love to study oversees.

Funny, because although I want to go to China and Japan, I am not that inspired at the moment to go to Australia. I don't know really why, but it seems quite similar to the UK.

Well then that would make sense. I have no been to UK. I'd also like to go to UK.

What exactly is the Juicy Store? The name sounds a little suspicious lol! Here, a shop called Juicy sells loads of hideous and revealing outfits but I am guessing it is not linked to your Juicy Store.

I think it is different. It's Juicy Couture. It had a lot of purses. It's super pricy so I don't shop there. I like to save my money and find good deals

Wow, you are so ambitious! I wouldn't be brave enough to try and pursue a career like that, well maybe. Lol. You're lucky knowing what you want to do, I don't really. I am taking Government and Politics for A levels next academic year and we cover America so I think after that I will want to visit Washington DC.

Oh trust me, that is just one idea. I have tons! If you enjoy your America studies go!

Oh my goodness, you are making me really want to visit all of these places! I have heard of Cape Cod and it sounds wonderful. I would love to explore America but sadly it is not in the budget.

Ditto with Europe.

What state do you live in? Do you have a southern accent? I'm curious, lol.

I'll PM you. I don't have an accent, I was born in New Hampshire and moved. Actually, it's rare to find anyone with an accent! I live in a melting pot.

I get you about television. FTR, it bugs me that British people are literally always the villains on US television shows!!! And also that all of us speak really posh, most Brits have terrible accents... Lol.

That does seem to happen a lot.

Hey, it's a famous country. I don't have Twitter (Tried it out a year ago, not for me. Plus, not a lot of my friends where on it and I had to have a protected account, with a exciting amount of six followers, haha.) but on Pintrest Deb Wills, founder of the first Disney site I checked daily, repinned by pin and I got super excited.
