Welcome to England
England is a small country that packs a punch!
Every time I fly into London and over the green fields of England, hymns from my very British upbringing starting playing in my mind. England’s pleasant pastures and mountains green have been part of the fabric of my existence since my first visit at 13 years old.
Connections to England have brought me to the River Wye, Stonehenge to witness the druids on the summer solstice and to travel through the Cotswolds and New Forest. England is full of lovely villages with village greens and Gothic churches. Visiting England is a delight. Period.
Bring your best tea drinking manners (you’ll be drinking oodles of it) and indulge in scones and clotted cream. All the clichés like “bangers and mash,” politely queuing and cricket in the village greens are REAL!
You just can’t tire of London. Leave yourself several days to explore this vibrant and diverse metropolis. There’s so much to do. From free museums, Bobbies, the London Eye, people spilling onto the streets from pubs, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Victorian buildings and Harrods. London. Walk. Get lost. Find the markets ( I never miss a chance to go to Borough Market in South Bank). London never loses its thrill.
