I always wanted to travel around upcountry in England because I would like to see the vividly green panorama views like I’ve seen them in movies that used locations in the UK. So I was really looking forward to seeing that kind of scenery when I went to England in the beginning of July 2011.
This trip was quite a long trip for me since it took around 14 days. My friends and I (four <little> women ^_^) were driving past Cambridge to Bath and back to London during the first 4 days of trip. After that, we traveled in London and took Euro star to Paris.
During our road trip in England, I believed that I’ve fulfilled my expectation of seeing green there. Starting at a garden in the backyard of house of my friend’s friend where we shortly dropped to get Take That concert tickets.
It wasn’t hard to find all of the green along the road when we used GPS in our rented car which tended to direct us to small roads. The advantage of self-driving tour was that we could park our cars and take a time to admire the scene like this.
We drove to visit Lavender farm, pass the old town such as Castle Combe, and let ourselves in the tourist spot like Bath and Roman Baths. I was wondering why water there looked so green and it was green like this back in the past or not?
The another tourist spot that I wanted to visit was Stonehenge. I remembered the time when I was young that I was amused by the structure of Stonehenge along with its mystery.
On the last day before we arrived at London, we visited Windsor Castle. Two of my friends wanted to go inside the castle while another friend and I didn’t. We were therefore hanging around the park near the castle while we were waiting for other two friends to finish their tour. It was raining that day and I thought to myself that this is it, England! Rain and green at the same time.
We didn’t have anything to do so we just tried to take different kinds of photos using iPhone apps and my Olympus camera.
Certainly, we couldn’t miss the chance to take the jumping photos. We also had prop this time which was our umbrellas.
Sorry for my silly jumping posture but I truly liked it. For me, it was the perfect shot combining with my favorite parts of taking photos: Road/pathway/route, green field and trees, and Jumping. :D
