When I arrived in Britain, I realized that the weather is more capricious than a child’s. It was sunny in the room. After walking a few steps, it began to rain. Finally, take a leaf out of the British book. Instead of holding an umbrella, enjoy the drizzle against the wind or walk to a corner coffee shop with a glass window for a latte.

If more than a month in advance, the price of the first class and the ordinary second class seats is almost the same, but the service is so much better, like the business class of the plane, every half an hour someone asks for fruit snacks or drinks, including a meal and the main meal is also free.
