    27 Reasons Studying Abroad In England Ruins You For Life

    Mostly because it's bloody perfect.

    1. Because British accents make everything sound more beautiful.

    Say anything: "twerking". "Sandwich." "Pickle jar."

    2. Because nowhere else are there two-liter Strongbow bottles.

    Get on it, rest of the world.

    3. Because hearing "cheers!" instead of boring old "thank you" is a beautiful sound.

    You are SO welcome.

    4. Because there are an insane amount of castles, and you probably won't ever see them all.

    5. Because the name "Poundland" will forever make you giggle, but someday will also make you emotional.


    6. Because once you've had Yorkshire pudding, you'll demand it at every meal for the rest of your life.


    7. Because you'll never live a life so laid back as you did in England.*

    *Yes, this tends to happen when going abroad anywhere, but it's definitely noticeable in England.

    8. Because the rain is surprisingly endearing.

    And you still carry an umbrella with you even though you don't need it. Because you've learned to be prepared.

    9. Because you'll forever be confused when you hear the word "football."

    Wait, you mean like soccer-football, right? 'Cause in England...

    10. Because Nando's is NOT the same anywhere else.

    11. Because you're convinced no other pub you drink at ever will be as historic and cool as the ones in Britain.

    This one's been around since 1900? My favorite one's been around since 1677.

    12. Because you lived only a few hours from royalty at any given time.

    And you wished every night that Kate might show up when you went out for a drink (IT'S POSSIBLE).

    13. Because you miss being at places where a Stella Artois cost less than a Bud Light.

    NO DISRESPECT TOWARD BUD. It's just weird, ok???

    14. Because no grocery store is as perfect as Tesco.

    15. Because there are so many options to sit down just to have tea and scones.


    Now you have a hard time finding just one near home.

    16. Because you don't have a view like this at your home.

    17. Because the English countryside is like no other.

    Sit down, everywhere else.

    18. Because you now compare every big city you visit to London.

    Sure, everywhere else is great, but where are their golden Houses of Parliament?

    19. Because your train station names aren't nearly as entertaining.

    20. Because the crepes are to be reckoned with.

    21. Because in England, there's a train to get you pretty much anywhere you want to go.

    Please mind the gap between the train and the platform.

    22. Because you actually didn't really study all that much.


    There was too much fun to be had.

    23. Because your campus was incredibly beautiful.

    24. Because you're convinced British humor is the best humor.

    Everyone else on Earth should just stop telling jokes.

    25. Because the hot chocolate and coffee from Costa cannot be replicated.

    After this, you'll be all, WTF is Starbucks?

    26. Because you miss seeing words spelled in prettier ways.

    Colour > color.

    27. And because no other place you live in the world will ever compare.
