Stoke by Nayland
Last year, in the Winter, or to be precise, in the month of December, we went to this serene place for some green therapy :-)
Stoke by Nayland is situated on the border of Suffolk and Essex in the East of England.
UK being a small country, we don't get much for the price we pay in terms of living space esp. when it comes to buying and renting property.
Hence, the open outdoors are always welcome :-) especially if it is in the quaint countryside.
Last summer, on our visit to Canada and USA, we were enthralled by the sheer size and enormity of these countries.
If we place 2-3 footpaths of UK adjacent to each other, maybe that would equal the width of one footpath out there, such is the difference in size and space.
Though we live in 3-4 bedroom houses out here, but I guess, the size of 2-3 rooms together would make up the size of one room out there in USA and Canada.
The roads, bridges and highways were so long, winding and large - simply magnificent :-) We loved driving out there.
The only niggling fear during our stay in USA was that some demented man would come and shoot us as it's a gun country and one never knows who turns up with a gun with what intention?! ;-)
Despite its vastness, Canada doesn't motivate us to settle there because it has some very freezing, cold conditions and we can't bear the harsh winter.
That's a lot of blogging for now :-)
