Самой мне писать лень некогда, я тут нашла ценную статейку, мне и самой пригодится, прокатиться в места, где еще не бывала. Поскольку мне переводить тоже лень, то я копипащу как есть, но честно обещаю рассказать о тех местах, где удалось побывать, типа Сноудонии.  И вообще, если какая картинка понравится, пишите в коменты, я наваяю пост.  Может, пригодится тем, кто собирается сюда в гости, решить, что посмотреть.  А уж картинки – не моим чета!

Там есть много хороших ссылок, если захочется изучить понравившееся место получше.

Отсюда http://handluggageonly.co.uk/2017/01/29/the-ultimate-road-trip-map-of-26-places-to-see-across-great-britain/   

A road trip is an incredible way to see a country especially, the truly stunning, Great Britain! One of the best things about our wonderful country is the vast amount of diverse sights to see (and perhaps even marvel at) that stretch the length and breadth of our island.

Last year, I decided to see much more of our amazing country and I’ve shared some of the best places that we experienced over the course of our travels. Take a look at our road trip route (slash itinerary) for the UK with the stops you should consider making on your road trip around Great Britain.

По кончикам верб Голоса за дверью - мама, папа, сестры. Детство. Я проснулся. Слюнка натекла... Вспомню - будто возвращусь на укромный остров. Там тепло. До смерти хватит мне тепла. Яблоки с айвою, с ноткою тумана- запах. Так, наверное, должен пахнуть рай... Принеси мне яблочко, мама...…

А ты была в Стоунхендже?
Aug. 16th, 2017 02:14 am (UTC)
Обожаю Кембридж.Я там работала давно ... 2 месяца. Шла однажды по дну Северного моря в момент отлива. Далеко зашла с несколькими англичанами. Потом вдруг что-то пришло в голову спросить: " а прилив-то у вас когда?" Они прикололись: "через минуту". На секунду все-таки стало не по себе. Хороший пост. Сохраню, может когда-то еще съезжу.
