Highway Romance….

…or romantic highway.

What used to be the wild west and the carriage is now the car and the motor way. Or not quite?

I am just on my way back from York, about 2 hours on the train from London. No nice car, no carriage (luckily) but a great view from a comfy seat. Shouting children, young ladies and sleeping adults. Might take a nap myself in a while.

What has changed since the good old days of carriages, horses and the wild west?

For me: WIFI. I can sit in a train, watch the country side passing by, having WIFI access in the train (and that for free) and write on my blog about having a romantic feeling looking over the country side. How great?

England is actually quite pretty. Up here in West Yorkshire. Down in Kent. Just London seems to be different. Neither does it feel particularly English with many foreigners and accents (including myself of course) but also it is a different feel – it is a city. A big city. A city that has a lot of green, which can be romantic too but, compared to the green countryside, it will stay a “town”.

Not sure what I actually would like to say here but that England has a nice countryside. No doubt.

Best Wishes to London, be home soon.
