Talking to people on the streets, the one thing I really took notice of was how passionate the people are about their country. Their veins run thick with national pride. I mainly chose the SEAM tour just for the opportunity to go back to London and interact with the locals. Their passion was contagious and made me what to participate in as many activities as possible.
