England in good weather is the bomb

To be brutally honest, I wasn’t expecting much out of the UK leg of my trip. I figured it would be terrible weather, and frankly, rather boring.

Well, if you are lucky enough to get good weather, England is brilliant. I did London on a bright 30 degree day. The whole city was crowded with people enjoying the a London summer weekend. Hyde Park was gorgeous and filled with people picnicking in the sun. The whole city was buzzing with a relaxed and happy atmosphere.

As I write this, I’m sitting in the most lovely beer garden in Winchester overlooking a gorgeous canal and enjoying the sunshine.  

This morning was rather gloomy, but luck stayed with me and the afternoon has been glorious.

I love that the English really appreciate summer. Everywhere, shops, pubs and homes have beautiful flowers hanging at the door or from balconies. It’s just so pretty everywhere.  

This morning we visited Stonehenge, just as the weather began to clear. Amazing feat that those huge stones were transported 300 miles 3000 years ago.


I think Hampshire and London would be the perfect summer destination if the weather was always this good.

I’m feeling really blessed that the “boring” part of my trip has turned out so much fun. My brother-in-law ‘s family has been so hospitable and I’ve loved spending time with them. I feel like I have a UK family myself.
