Not Of Your World

Monte Carlo, Monaco 099

You know, I have never felt more English than when I travel abroad. It’s as if all of my unique Britishness, my defining Anglocentricity is distilled down into one little bubble of BBC-centric tea-obsessed, Victorian-related English that just rolls out of me as though I spend my entire life in a top hat and corset.

Most of this, unsurprisingly, happens when I am in the company of AmericansCollapse )

I love to explore, and to discover all of these new traditions whilst sharing my own. Perhaps I add on an extra aura of ‘Englishness’ whilst abroad, simply so I give people what they expect, but I don’t mind being set apart; that’s okay. I have a little Union Jack imprinted on my heart, and lots of traditions tucked into my pocket. If anybody asks, I love to tell – I’m a guest in their world, after all.

In the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, all cobbled streets and crooked old buildings, there sits an empty car park very dear to my heart.


A shadowy, unremarkable Edinburgh cobbled lane with a large metal gate at the far end and slabs of wood in the foreground, an archway slicing the picture in half. It’s very grey, and very empty.

LJ Idol Week Two - Deconstruction and the UnderbellyCollapse )

If you'd like to learn more about the Underbelly, then trot along to the Underbelly website and have a look at all the cool photos and promo videos contained within. For more explanation of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world and Underbelly's place within it, here is the EdFringe website which will go much more in depth with what the Fringe is or how it works. Alternatively, feel free to ask me as many questions as you like!

This was my Week Two entry for therealljidol, Deconstruction. Please feel free to leave any constructive criticism and please do vote for me in the poll at the end of the week!
