Scotland!

I am an immigrant, I came to the UK when I was a child and I grew up here. I was never very happy when I lived in England and it never felt like home to me despite the fact that I'm basically British now in everything but paperwork. This changed when I came to Scotland for university, I've lived in Scotland for about 8 years now and even though I fell on hard times after uni that I'm only just clawing my way out of, this is home to me now and I don't want to leave.

I also recently got my permanent residency, yay!

My home country is Malta, many of you will most probably never have heard of it!

So here are a few quick facts about Malta:

1. It is a small island smack dab in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea
2. It's whole population totals around 400,000
3. It has a sister island named Gozo that is even smaller!
4. It's sunny most of the year round (it never snows)
5. Although we are a very small island, we have our own language, Maltese! It has semitic, italian and anglo saxon influences :)

Born and raised in Argentina, on the south of south america. What to say about my country?

  • We are known for being the country of tango but almost none of us dance it.
  • Being in the southern hemisphere means that our Christmas is never white, so I associate Christmas with summer holidays.
  • We are a country made up of immigrants, mostly spanish and Italians because of the world wars and more recently from bordering countries.
  • Territorially we are the eighth largest country in the world but we are only 45 million inhabitants.
  • Together with Brazil we share one of the seven natural wonders of the world, las Cataratas del Iguazú (Iguazu falls), I visited them last year and they really deserve the place in the wonders.
  • Our greeting is with a kiss on the cheek with everybody, even between men and strangers.
  • Dulce de Leche. Enough said.
  • Our Spanish is somewhat different from the rest of Latin America because we have what is called the voseo, which is a form of the second person of the singular different from the Latin Spanish. To us, "you" isn't "tú" but "vos". And we call our spanish Castellano.

I'd like the UK flag please!
I've lived in England my entire life, and in the exact same house I was brought home to after I was born! I briefly lived in Hull, a city in the north of England when I went to university for my undergraduate degree and it was very different to home. Where I live at home is a suburban commuter-town area (basically live about 40 miles outside of London and most people who live around here travel to London for work but don't want to live actually in the city!)
Despite it's many faults, it's my home. I'd love to live abroad somewhere in Scandinavia at some point in the future, but I think I'll always eventually come back home ^^
I worked in London, England's capital city, for a couple of years and currently study at a university in London as well. My favourite thing to do in London is go to the west end (I guess London's version of Broadway) to see musicals :hearts:

Proudly from the UK, currently living in Greater London. I love proper chippie chips and a cup of tea with plenty of biscuits to dip in. I'm obsessed with the London Underground. (except the Northern Line) I like Doctor Who. I'm pretty much your stereotypical British person I guess :shifty:

It may not be perfect, but it's a great country, and I love living here, even though it rains a lot. But that just means it's really pretty in the countryside with all the flowers and grass. Someday I want to see the famous woods full of bluebells. I've also been to the New Forest which was beautiful. So many absolutely lovely places in the UK to visit without even leaving the country. And of course, everybody should visit London. I finally got to see the lights in Oxford Circus and Regents Street over Christmas and they were amazing. Regents Street had these huge glowing angels flying above and it was gorgeous. Puts our local town's efforts to shame. :angel1:

And of course, we have the best chocolate. Honestly, I never get why people say British food is so bad. Roast dinners, fish and chips, shepherd's pie, sausage and mash...yum! And being able to get breakfast with PROPER thick rashers of bacon, none of this streaky stuff!! in a greasy spoon cafe. Sprouts with Christmas dinner and pudding afterwards with a mince pie. I could go on, but now I'm hungry. :lol:

I choose the American flag! I currently live in NYC and I have never lived anywhere outside the US. I love my life here and wouldn't trade it for the world. I don't always agree with everything my country does, but I still think we're pretty great. I love being in one of the most diverse cities in the world, makes for great food and culture!
