I am an Anglophile.
By definition, an anglophile is: a person who greatly admires or favors England and things English. [from Merriam-Webster online]
I am in the midst of plans to relocate to England this summer and am looking forward to it with great anticipation. I actually visited there for the first time last September and fell in love with the country. I never once felt like I was in a foreign country or on the other side of the world, even though they speak English in a different manner and they drive on the wrong side of the road. Ahem. But yes I am and have been an Anglophile for quite some time. Two of my closest friends and confidantes live in England. Admittedly it’s frustrating to only be able to talk online or by phone, but hopefully that will change soon.
I just love most anything about England and the UK!
As for why I’m an Anglophile… I have my theories, but you’ll have to wait til I get to that particular part of 101 Things… ;o)
