Tourist Nails Observations on England With Brilliant Facebook Post

Scott Waters would like to offer you a crash course in all the ways that Britain is special.

The traveler is something of an Internet sensation thanks to his 100-point list of what he learned from visiting England.

This list has been well received by social media denizens, which we will illustrate in a second.

However, first we would like to present the Facebook entry that is gaining interweb steam. When you finish perusing his observations, you may just see why.

Here is England according to one Scott Waters (h/t Mashable):

I was in England again a few weeks ago, mostly in small towns, but here's some of what I learned:* Almost everyone is...

This thorough list is really just a conversation starter. We welcome any insights you might have into the wonderful country.

A few things we might add to the above list.

• The newspapers are not awful. They are awfully entertaining. Also, everybody reads them. Indeed, print is alive and well during daily commutes on the underground.

• Waters states, “The beer isn't warm, each style is served at the proper temperature.” We can’t second this enough. So very true.

• Waters states, “Many of the roads are the size of our sidewalks.” By the time you get back to the states you will actually wonder if America expanded the roads while you were gone.

The comments seem to agree that Waters has something with a majority of this list. One person exclaimed, “Thank you for reminding me how much I love my country.”

Another offered, “I loved reading this Scott. As an Englishman it's always interesting to see how we are viewed by others. Especially honoury Brits.”

Have any other observations?

We might also add that British reality cop shows have a rather remarkable ability to make driving without a license a captivating offense.

In either case, we now look forward to our return with renewed fervor thanks to Waters.
