but I also anticipated that we would need a bit of a break from traveling.
a chance to truly acclimate ourselves to the new time zone and recover from the craziness of culture shock.
have a few home cooked meals.
watch a lot of movies (Charlie and Lola in particular).
run about. play.
a short stint in the Kent area was exactly what we needed.
I am so thankful we were able to do just that.
a week in the English countryside.
I didn't want to leave.
the week felt so...English.
everything I imagine life to be in this country.
morning strolls down the lane, mug of tea in hand.
breezes rippling the grasses.
a pub lunch with appropriate beverages and nosh.
doing life with friends.
sunshine and rain.
sipping Pimms on the cricket green.
Jaffa cakes. loads and loads.
English country life is grand.
|Naomi and Darcy share snacks.|
|English flag turned Elsa cape.|
|the farm our cottage was situated on...|
|narrow country lanes.|
|bricks and red doors. two of my most favourite things.|
|feeding the fish at the pub.|
|our lunch spot. been around for over 400 years. that is staggering to my American mind...|
|a walk about in the countryside.|
|just outside the cottage door.|
life in the English countryside.
there's not much else like it.
