Me too! The British Isles are beautiful. And I was thinking that even before reading romance novels that sing the praises of the British countryside to the skies.the constant grey skies and mediocre temperatures even in Summer?
I mean, it's bearable but... never heard someone say they love it.
I also agree with @Adaryn on the love/hate relationship between the French and English people. Some of the kindest, warmest people I ever met were British.
As for the food, I will be diplomatic and say that your charms lie elsewhere.
