Where did you go in England? πŸ™‚

Glad you had a lovely trip. And glad you’re not worrying about the proposal too much now you know it’s on its way. Enjoy this last period of time as boyfriend and girlfriend!!!

I’ve been living here a month now and I think it’s amazingly beautiful too. Where’d you visit? I’m glad you had a good trip.

@zippylef: Really? What do you think is particularly beautiful? I’ve never been to the US (assuming that’s where you’re from only cos most bees seem to be) so I don’t know how the two compare and I’m just curious.

@VickyAurea: I live in Norfolk, as my profile says. I just like the landscape… I don’t know. We drove to Milton Keynes last weekend and the countryside around there is awesome. The rolling green pastures separated by the perfect box hedges and little fences. Fields of purple heather and wildflowers. The old stone farmhouses and churches. It’s like an old pastoral painting. I guess I feel like there is just so much history here. I love it. I’m from the Midwest and grew up in an urban area (St. Louis, MO), so this is a big change for me. I’m enjoying it so far. I’m even enjoying driving on the wrong side of the road. πŸ˜‰

Sorry to threadjack. :/

@zippylef: But MK is notoriously ugly! A good place to ski though πŸ™‚ Glad you’re enjoying Norfolk anyway.

@VickyAurea: Haha, not as ugly as burned out buildings and homeless people asleep in a pile of trash on the streets. I meant the countryside around it, I didn’t see much of the city itself. I want to visit the Lake District SO bad.

The shine of London wears off ridiculously quickly! The countrysides of England are beautiful though! Still – it is absolutely NOTHING compared to Canada. I would move back home in a heartbeat if I could! England just seems to come up sub-par on almost everything when compared to Canada. So stay where you are as long as you can to soak it all up πŸ˜‰

@zippyleaf: haha I’ve never heard anyone say they actually like MK!

I live in Vancouver, BC currently, but was raised in England.  I’m going back over Christmas for the first time in 9 or so years ~ I can’t wait!!!  I’ll be going up to Scotland, down to Plymouth, staying also in Camden and Chelmsford.  I have 3 weeks so plenty of time ~ even time enough to hop over to Paris.

I’m glad you enjoyed your trip Gwen πŸ™‚

@calikary: Umm…what? Haha. Just weather-wise I can’t imagine making that switch! (Although each time I’ve been in the UK I’ve lucked out with amazing weather!)
