The Wikipedia page for UK starts with this sentence: The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain. After visiting the country for the first time for a longer time (2 weeks) I learned so much about the history (William the conqueror, Oliver Cromwell, the parliament, …), that I’m now even more curious how everything fits together. I spent a lot of time reading Wikipedia pages, even while writing this blog post on a phone just a short introduction to that part of world.
(btw. Since 2 weeks I’m becoming more and more a fan of this country. I’ll definitely come back to explore the rest.)
