I think it’s safe to say that the United Kingdom is one of my favorite places to travel to four main reasons:
- Shopping! SHOPPING! Shopping!
- Direct flight from Ottawa to London! + MANY direct and inexpensive flights from the UK to many major cities in Europe!
- It’s a BEAUTIFUL country; from the heart of London to the flowing countryside; I can never get enough of the views!
Our most recent visit to this wonderful country was back in November. At this point, I think we’ve visited the UK during every season. I’d say there’s something I love about each season so I can’t say I like one more than the other.
During each trip, we visit our traditional list of attractions such as the heart of London, Primark, Wagamama, etc., but also try to see at least one new place we have never been to before!
This time, my husband made the call, and we visited Stonehenge and the nearby Town of Windsor. Both locations were definitely worth the trip! It actually felt important to visit Stonehenge because of its historical background; I definitely feel we checked something off our bucket list with this one. Next, the Town of Windsor; like many of these English Towns, was absolutely adorable! Filled with so many little shops, cafes, and restaurants, and of course, the Windsor Castle right in the middle of the Town. Check + Check!
Luckily for us, the weather cooperated better than expected as well. We were greeted with sunshine from the moment we landed, to the moment we took off at the end of our trip. Not only was it sunny, but it wasn’t at all as cold as it was in Canada, so – bonus! Walking around comfortable in a leather jacket in November is a win in my eyes.
Anyways, we will probably be back sooner than later because we just can’t seem to get enough of Europe recently!!
