I remember a long time ago, reading about Stonehenge.
And somehow I thought Stonehenge doesn’t exist any more.
Well, it sounded so extraordinary, and children may easily get a wrong impression.
Anyway, I was quite fascinated by the place and thought it would be amazing to see it!
And, one day, I convinced 2 of my friends to go there, and a child’s dream came true. 🙂
Stonehenge, a ring of standing stones, was probably constructed around 2,500 BC. It’s still not clear who built it, when, and why.
Somehow, I have an impression there are lots of squirrels in the UK.
There are mostly grey squirrels, however red ones you can also find.
I have many (sharp 😉 ) pictures of grey squirrels from the UK, but I decided to show you this unsharp one, definitely not the best photo, but I find it funny.
I hope you don’t mind its quality. 🙂
Is there a more famous “symbol” of the United Kingdom than a red telephone box.
OK, I could probably list a few others…
Anyway, I somehow like it a lot. I’ve seen the red boxes also in other countries that have “some British connection” e.g., in Malta.
To continue my post from yesterday; I had a chance to visit different parts of the United Kingdom during all seasons. Each time may be charming, each time may be dark and rainy. My favorite seasons for visiting the United Kingdom is spring or early autumn, but some places may be more convenient during summer.
Welcome to England!
Yes, that’s correct, this month is not going to be about the entire country i.e., the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but “only” about England – the country in the country.
There are so many differences between all countries, islands etc. within the United Kingdom, so I decided to have a separate month about each of them that I’ve visited.
