Default Whats the one thing you now wished you had done

before you left the UK.



Having been here nearly 7 years and only gone back once since the visas. We decided to be tourist in the UK and do a bit of a driving tour. from Scotland down to London with obvious stop offs on the way. Now watching The Edinburgh Tattoo on TV, we were there when they were putting the seating up, realised that we should of taken more holidays/trips around UK as never saw much of it whilst there.

So what thing do you think you could of done, or if you haven't left yet what are you planning on doing before you move over?

Girl next door?

My more serious answer would be bringing a nice vehicle with me, could have saved a lot of money when I first landed. I didn't do enough research (pay attention those of you playing at home!)

It is the same for me - I wish I had seen more of the UK.

Living in London it was easy and interesting to visit many places around Europe and I did. But I will go to my grave never knowing what it is like to spend time in Hartlepool.

I wish we had seen and done more in Europe: I hate it when friends and family post all their holiday snaps on Facebook. I would so love to go on European city breaks and holidays to the likes of Turkey, Spain, Italy and Greece.
