There's a lot going happening on British soil these days and you don't want to miss it! You've heard of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee? I lived in England during her Silver Jubilee (you figure that out!). And surely you know that the 2012 Olympics are being held in London...and much more!
Check out Smitten By Britain, written by Melissa S. It was amazing reading her About page and finding an American gal after my own heart! If you're interested in British history, literature, drama and mystery (the Brits do this best in our book!) then you know you're Smitten too! You can also find extensive posts on Culture, Travel, Food, The Royal Family, Recipes - all with the British bent.

I kept becoming entranced by the BBC clips of shows I had never heard of. I LOVED all the photos of the English countryside and historic places, castles, waterways etc. There's so much beauty in England...it's more delicate and conservative than the land masses in the U.S. Reading Melissa's blog truly feeds the need to travel and explore the British Isles!
