Dear England - I love you
Dear Countryside - It shall be hard to leave you in a months time when I move to live in the US desert.
Dear Rain - Please stop.
If you hadn't caught on by now, let me remind you, I am extremely proud to be British. I love that I grew up in the beautiful county of Buckinghamshire and I shall always be grateful to my parents and outdoor loving, adventure chasing Grandparents and Godmother for giving me a love for the outdoors. I have so many fond memories of camping as a kid and at the young age of four, I was sat on a pony and never looked back! I was constantly pestering my parents for my own horse and I would spend as many weekends at the stables as possible. I was smitten. Although I haven't been able to keep up horse riding once I started travelling and studying at University, I still love being outside. That said, whilst I am back in the UK for the next month I shall be doing as much hiking as I can. Here are some photos from my hike yesterday at the beautiful Ashridge. In typical English style.....it was a little grey and rainy.
