I was born in England and although I now live in The Netherlands I am still very much in love with the U.K. Luckily my husband, Koos, also loves travelling and we have seen a great deal of the U.K. together over the years. Must have been fate because we met in England - it was a holiday romance with a twist - Koos met his parents- in law before he met his bride!
We had a great holiday in England in October 2006 when we had a two week holiday there. The first few days we spent with my parents. I celebrated my birthday there with them - although "celebrated" spent half the day in the local walk in surgery because of an infected toe! Then for the second week we went to Suffolk where we had hired a cottage. It is an area we had not explored so much and we had a great time. It was made special by meeting Berni and Carl for a long lunch. We had a wonderful time together even though the Smart nearly ended up floating out to sea because of the very high tides that day. Berni - I still miss our chats on a sunday morning.
The way of life, the history and culture and the diverse landscape - it is so beautiful.....the United Kingdom really is worth visiting and do not believe what they say about it ALWAYS being bad weather there.
Once again I am counting the days until I go over again - a week visiting my parents...... home from home. I fly over on the 20th of september.
