It's quite simple. I've never been to the UK, and I make it a point to never perpetuate the stereotype of the "ugly American". But this is a two way street. Some of you may never have traveled to the USA, or have but may be confused about what you perceived/heard. I'll try to answer any questions you may have, if you will answer mine. Some may be stupid questions that will make you groan, others may be brilliant, yet still you will groan. Either way, I don't anticipate it being overtly boring. [hr] I shall start. As a tourist, what is the best area for me to visit/stay at? Also, brewing beer is one of my hobbies, so I definately want to visit some public houses.
