Abwarten, Tee trinken, weiterreisen! Vor über dreißig Jahren beschloss der Amerikaner Bill Bryson, England zu seiner Wahlheimat zu machen und für einige Jahre dort zu leben. Damals brach er auf zu einer großen Erkundungsreise quer über die britische Insel. Inzwischen ist er ein alter Hase, was die Eigentümlichkeiten der Engländer betrifft, aber dennoch entdeckt er immer wieder Neues, was ihn fasziniert und amüsiert. Kein Wunder also, dass es ihn reizt, diese Insel erneut ausgiebig zu bereisen. Von Bognor Regis bis Cape Wrath, vom englischen Teehaus bis zum schottischen Pub, von der kleinsten Absteige bis zum noblen Hotel, Bryson lässt nichts aus und beantwortet zahlreiche Fragen. Wie heißt der Big Ben eigentlich wirklich? Wer war Mr. Everest? Warum verstehen sich Amerikaner und Engländer nur bedingt? Bill Bryson will noch einmal wissen, was dieses Land so liebenswert macht, und begibt sich auf den Weg – schließlich ist er wieder reif für die Insel!
