England is green! No, not the recycling, environmentally-friendly kind of green (I don’t know the country’s stance there). I’m talking about the beautiful, luscious, vegetation kind of green. Its more beautiful than I expected!
As we drove from London to the Forest of Dean (near the southern part of the English-Wales border), we were amazed at all the green. Layers upon layers of it, and of all different shades.
We expected the drive to be along main highways…and part of it was, but much of it was on two lane roads that were quite narrow. The bushes and trees were often trimmed back at the roads edge to ensure cars could pass. So if you’re driving in the area for the first time, just be aware that the roads are a bit narrow.
The whole drive was beautiful.
The Forest of Dean is in my home county (Gloucestershire) and only 40 minutes or so from Cardiff where Joanna and I both study! Have fun 🙂
No kidding! We love it out here – and we just spent a quick bit of time in Cardiff! Took a glance at Cardiff bay, walked around the Cardiff castle, and saw the animal wall. Lovely country all around.
