Great Britain in a newcomer’s view

Everything which astonishes me, delights me, or scares me in the UK

This blog is about impressions of a newcomer from Eastern Europe who temporarily settled down in the East Midlands – a region with green hilly fields and middle seized cities with industrial past, so similar to many others on the British Isles.  Is there anything special about that? For some it might be the Sherwood Forrest and the still alive legend of Robin Hood. For others the birth and work place of D.H. Lawrence.  For me however, it is  Nottingham with its universities and people who made me come back here after 3 months of an internship.

So here I am surrounded by green hills and red brick terraced houses and here are my experiences of how it is to live in the UK.  I am writing about how it differs from my expectations, what works better than in my country and what fails even more. I am also writing about  people, places and recipes – every encounter with the British culture.
