Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

The top of Kinder Scout in the Peak District really provides some spectacular views. I was fortunate enough to enjoy some amazing weather while in England.


England has had some recent newspaper headlines that read "4 Million households where no adults work". This means that roughly 7 million Britons under-65-years-olds are currently living with no work experience. Britain even allocates over 36 billion pounds to 'jobseekers'. In other words, if you're out of a job, England will pay you to search for one. Being paid to 'search' for a job doesn't sound like much of an encouragement to find one. What I was even more shocked to learn is the incentives England provides to those who have kids: if you have a child, the government provides housing and a monthly wage. I couldn't find anything to substantiate this fact on the internet but I heard it from more than one person while visiting England.
