Ok it's true, sometimes I moan about the weather, I complain about the summer (actually the summer-mode: off!) or about the food (not too much about this though!) but you know, I am originally from a Country where the most unexpected situation is to have 20 degree in July or a little bit of rain. I genuinely can't say anything about the food or the quality of it as it's one of the best places in the world where to eat so, yes standards are quite high. Maybe the only downside could be having to pay 10 euro for a coffee in Venice if you are not smart enough to avoid St. Mark's Square but.. come on these are details!
Well that said, I have to admit that when we speak about the English Countryside (and I know, the rain does make the difference here!) I am at awe as there is nothing more beautiful than going to the Cotswolds for a spring break. Here the traditional stone buildings, the hobbit-like villages with gentle streams and wild flowers are a quintessential English beauty. Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, Lower Slaughter and the Old Mill are just a few names in the long list of wonderful villages. This time I also managed to take my beautiful ginger cat, Paddy, with us. Together we went for some lovely walks, enjoyed the sun (oh yes!) and the fantastic scenery.
