What a strange reaction....I am English. I don't answer to "Brit". But I think you would be surprised by how many there are here.
Anyway, I second your good wishes for 2016.
You are a traveler too...it is in our blood. Enjoy 2016I carried a passport from the UK for many years , proud to have been at school and university in England, proud to be an Anglican and proud of what remains of my family in England. I think that I saw the best of England from about 1950 to 1980 then I was posted overseas.. I still belong to my two golf clubs, still return for Holy Week in London but it is horrid for my arthritis.
Happy new year to all Poms ..God save the Queen .
