Due to the state of the economy, I keep coming across miserable articles telling me that tax payers, drivers, and pretty much everyone else will have to keep spending more and more money.
Today I saw a news piece which unapologetically confirmed that the UK is one of the most depressing places to live in Europe.
Well, I disagree! People just need to think a little bit more positively – moping around about a country's food and diesel prices has never done anyone any good.
Here are the top five reasons why I wouldn't dream about driving my van around any other country:
I'm sure the road side cafes in other countries wouldn't be able to serve me my life-long favourite of a fried bacon, egg and sausage butty. And even on the off chance that they could, I can guarantee it wouldn't be served with the right amount of grease.
I love driving around London at Christmas. You definitely won't find the combination of bright red buses, the London eye, and stunning Christmas lights anywhere else in the world.
Driving on the left hand side of the road in right hand drive vehicles. Ok, I'm sure I would get used to switching over to the other side pretty quickly, but let's face it, we're quite unique!
Relaxing country drives. When you don't fancy driving on a manic motorway, there will almost always be an alternative and much prettier scenic route in some classic British countryside.
We're hosting the Olympics in London next year, maybe not too relevant to drivers in the UK, but it's still going to be amazing!
So, rather than thinking about the bad points, I reckon everyone should focus on what they like about this country. And let's not forget Christmas is on its way – the coca cola truck told me so!
