Countryside Walk

The two main cities that I have ever lived in are Tokyo and London. Possibly because of that, and my preference to be spoilt for choice with shops and restaurants, I would consider myself a city girl. I enjoy the fact that the underground station is a few minutes’ walk away, I like hopping on the tube and whizzing across town, and I am not exactly the outdoorsy type.

Having said that, I appreciate all the greenery that we are so lucky to have in the UK. Even bang in the middle of the city, we have beautiful parks and gorgeous views.

Step slightly outside of the city, and if you land in the right place, you can feel like a character from the Little House on the Prairie books. Is that getting a little carried away? Maybe. But our visit to the outskirts of London over the weekend reminded us that we can always use a break from the hustle and bustle.

Are you in the city or country camp?

    I'm definitely a country girl! I love the city for a day, a week-end tops, but I feel like my brain and body work better as one if I've got fresh air and fields to look at!Flora
