I come from Ely. In my free time I go running - not very fast and not particularly far - and power walking - its all in the wiggle I am told. Ely may be small but it has an impressive cathedral and waterside to run/walk by.
I am not far from London so make use of the art galleries; I know what I like but not always sure what I am looking at! ; museums particularly the Victoria & Albert; theatres. Its a great just to wander and explore new places, the architecture and design always amaze me.
I like to eat out with friends as this makes the meal, but the food of the country you are in always tastes the best, also partial to Baileys.
If all else fails and its raining - which it often does in England- I can not resist a pot of coffee, a home made cake and a good book.
