England was just lovely

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in England. The people went out of their way to be friendly and the drivers were very courteous.

The food was excellent, either from farm shops or pubs and restaurants and very good value. No sign of plastic food!

Our sons live there with their families and are very satisfied with the NHS. My wife fell ill and I had to call 999. A paramedic arrived within five minutes and was very professional. He wouldn’t take any payment.

Our sons say they pay less tax and social charges than here.

We love the National Trust and there is always something to do, whatever the weather. We are taking our next holidays there.
