I've always been fascinated with the United Kingdom. It started when I was a kid upon learning that my family (on my paternal side) originated in Lancashire, which is located in  Northern . Though on my mother's side I had a different heritage, it was the English I most related to. 

I'm really not sure why. It may have been my exposure to  everything British when my mom and step dad were stationed in Berlin. They had a British sector of course, so I became quite  familiar with their culture. Needless to say, I could probably answer a lot of trivia questions about the United Kingdom and its people. 

Strangely though,  I've never been to the UK except for a layover in an airport.. does that count? I don't think it does. 

I used to call the British Airways 800 number to get air travel ticket info when I was 12 and 13. Even back then you could book your travel online.  But I loved calling to hear the soothing voice of a British woman reading back  my fantasy trip's itinerary.  You couldn't get that on a computer. 
What you could get on a computer was, the type of aircraft, whether there was meal service  and a host of other things. You could even choose your seats, at least on United.  So I would do a lot of cross referencing. Yeah, I was a weird kid. If there was YouTube in those days, I would have never finished school. 

Calling the British Airways 800 number to book my fantasy trips is where I first fell in love with Yanni's  music.   They would play his song "Aria"  while the system was  looking for flights and calculating prices. 

Anyway, it''s pretty neat they have this sort of thing at ... they also have sleeping to catch some zzz's before your  flight. Pretty awesome.
