The UK is so well known for the wonderful capital city of London that many visitors simply come to visit London, and perhaps check out Oxford, Cambridge or Stratford Upon Avon, but rarely take the time to venture out of the cities and into the phenomenal countryside the country has to offer - with such varied sceneries in a very small area where, from London, you can reach most places within an afternoon’s car journey.
Now, admittedly, in terms of getting away from it all camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea so there are plenty of other options to get away from it all, such as by renting a cottage in the countryside or even staying in an AirBnB.

I have spent much of my life out in the mountains, hiking and exploring as much as I can in the US and abroad. As a young girl my dad brought me out into the wilds of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and all over the forests of New England inspiring my love for seeing the beauty of the forests, the oceans and the mountain peaks.

In 2014 my father suddenly passed away from a heart attack. Whenever I could I would head to the mountains to feel his spirit. In just a few days I would hike Africa’s tallest mountain , carrying with me the spirit of my very own mountain man.

Usually being left speechless happens when we’ve been wowed by some aesthetic beauty, or been exposed to something we haven’t for some time or ever at all. Our cognitive processes might not even fire in the same manner as we usually do when forming memories. So I ask again, when was the lat time a place left you speechless?
If you answered ‘I can’t remember’ to this question, you might have some real work to do. By work, I of course mean visiting a new destination that allows you to answer this question immediately. Consider visiting the following places and you’ll have plenty of these ideas to draw on:
