Hey, if you could drive all the way to Edinburgh, Scotland every so often we could start one! ~lol~
I have an odd question. There are so many of you here from the UK, I've been wondering. If Iseedeadmonkeys who is in England, wanted to visit Numpty in Scotland, do you have to go through Customs, as if you are going to a different country? Sorry if it's a rather obvious thing, but I've always wondered that. Here, I have New Hampshire, another U.S. State to the south, and Canada to the north. Is traveling in the UK like going to New Hampshire where you just drive on through, or like Canada, where you need a passport and go through Customs?

If iseedeadmonkeys was coming to visit me then no, there's no customs to go through or anything like that as we're all part of the United Kingdom. So you could just drive straight here. If going by plane you need a passport or drivers licence as photographic ID only. Its only when leaving the UK (Scotland, England, Wales and Nrth Ireland) as a whole that you need to go through customs and have your passport stamped.
So I guess we're kinda like the various states only we can technically call ourselves country although we're governed by the same bunch of numpties! ~chuckles~ More or less!

To be honest Rob in the whole of Europe u don't really need a passport very often any more..
Not like it used to be, most borders are now open...
I need a passport to get out of the UK but then I can just drive through France, Belgium, Germany into Holland to visit family without needing my passport....
when I was little u needed a passport for every border crossing now most of them are not even manned any more...

I know for flights with ryanair to ROI you only need a driving licence or ID Card not passport. So would assume the same or less for NI.
We should do a little UK meet up hehe.. there seems to be a few of us.
