Thought I would introduce you to one of my favorite magazines.

Anglotopia. The Magazine for Anglophiles

English treasures await readers inside the pages of each charming issue.

There's a slang page.

Lorry=A semi or truck
Bonnet=hood of car
Plaster=Band Aid
Tipping Down=Raining heavily

You get the picture.

There's a book page which gives titles of books to read relating to England. I refer to them often.

Recipes for scones, shepherds pie and other English favorites.

Articles about historical figures such as : Henry VIII, Alfred the Great, Richard III, Queen Anne.

Sites to visit: Oxford, Canterbury Cathedral, Emma Bridgewater, Exploring Leeds, Twinings Tea to name a few.

Research on the London Blitz, The Spitfire, The National Trust, The Great Smog of 1952, History of the Mini Cooper. The list is endless.

There is a whole site of all things Anglophile here...

You will go down many rabbit holes getting lost in the wonder of it all. A great escape. The hours will pass without a thought. But you won't care, for you've found pure enchantment.
You're welcome.
