60 Second Travel Chat With Anglotopia’s Jonathan Thomas

American Jonathan Thomas became interested with all things British at the early age of eight. Four years ago he started Anglotopia which has become the largest website dedicated to Anglophiles and all things Great Britain. This week I got a very brief chance to fire some quick questions at Jonathan for the new BT travel chat column.
City,Town or Countryside – Which do you prefer?
Dorset is my England drug of choice. I love nothing more than ambling through the hills of Dorset around Shaftesbury.
What can you not travel without?
My wife! I can’t imagine going to Britain without her!
Your top 3 places in Britain?
Covent Garden, London
Shaftesbury, Dorset
Hyde Park, London

Gold Hill, Shaftesbury

Where is the one place you would not return to?
I’m in no hurry to go back to the East End of London.
Who would be your ideal travel partner?
Again – the Wife.
What is your best travel experince?
Flying British Airways First Class last summer. It was heaven.
If you could travel to anywhere in Britain right now, where would it be?
Somewhere I haven’t been before. Maybe Yorkshire or the Lake District. Really I’d give anything just to be there. I’m happy to come to the airport and leave!
If you could live anywehere in Britain, where would it be and why?
Shaftesbury, Dorset as it’s my favorite place on Earth.

Lake District

What annoys you most when travelling?
What would be your one piece of advice for people travelling to Blighty?
We may share the same language but British culture is completely different than here in America. Things are very different. You would do well to read a few books about British culture.
Thank you to Jonathan for joining us for this weeks travel chat. You can see more of Jonathan by visiting his website Anglotopia as well as joining him on Facebook and Twitter.
