Before ‘The Event’ (Remain Indoors!) I used to travel a lot for work, never more than a few weeks, but quite widely; US, Asia and some parts of Europe. I have been told now that this is pretty much over, as they feel it can all be done via Zoom/Teams. (I disagree, but keeping mouth shut and being a good company man in the current climate.)
So I guess this is contributing; I currently feel very trapped here.
But since the Brexit debacle I have often found myself ashamed to admit that I am from the UK, usually I claimed to be Irish or Canadian depending on the part of the world I was in.
We all know the omnishambles that US politics is, yet 3 three times now in three different US states I have had Americans openly laughing at me about the stupidity of the decision.
So its easier to be Irish in the US and Canadian elsewhere - I have an odd soft Scottish/mid-Atlantic accent, so I can get away with it.
