I want to write a little checklist of things to do in the UK.

In England
- Eat a vege sausage or anything with brown sauce from a roadside stand
- Buy chips wrapped in newspaper and eat them by the sea
- Go to a pub
- Cross a fence using a stile
- Get stung by a nettle
- Pick some brambles, if they're in season
- Throw a custard pie in the face of a Brexiteer

In Scotland
- Eat porridge
- Drink Irn Bru
- Wander around Glasgow and see if i remember anything

I have to wake up stupidly early tomorrow and take a taxi to Shekou. Ferry to Hong Kong. Long plane to Helsinki. Short plane to London. Let's go.

I’m afraid they don’t wrap them in newspaper anymore and brambles won’t appear until the end of summer. Actually, I met my wife picking brambles (true story). The other things on your England list are easily obtained and I can maybe assist.

I think i will accept chips outside of newspaper as long as they have vinegar and a seagull tries to steal one. Looking forward.

I guarantee that many large seagulls will be waiting in a queue to steal one.

That's a good list! I'd almost forgotten about stiles and stinging nettles. If you do get stung, add 'use a dockleaf' to your list!

Dock leaf! I totally forgot about that. I suspect there will be a lot of small things that trigger memories once I am out of the city.
