It still astounds me how accessible the rest of Europe is from the U.K. You can hop on the high speed train from central London and voila, you’re in Paris within a couple of hours. An hour and half flight away gets you a different country, culture and language.
What fascinates me more are countries that border another. You can drive to another country to shop and then drive back. It couldn’t be more different than NZ where I can drive for 2 hours and not see another 2 legged creature. Well, other than the Kea birds.... at Colmar, Alsace
