A Country Hike {Travel Tuesday}

Since you guys enjoyed last week's Travel Tuesday where I share my hike in Herefordshire, I thought I would share another hike with you this week. 



When I was in England, I had the opportunity to take a nice 9 mile hike through the Lullingstone Country Park, specially on the Darent Valley Foot Path. My group was lucky enough to be guided by these three brothers that were evacuated to this part of the country during World War II. During the 9 mile hike, we walked through hop fields, through towns, through castles, through pretty much anything, and we did it in the nice English countryside rain. It really made the 9 miles go by fast... haha. Actually, it was pretty nice to see such a beautiful part of England. The only thing that was depressing was how the three old men were in much better shape than I was. 

Here are some pictures of the hike:

Would you take a 9 mile hike in the rain to see this?

    1. Oh my gosh me too! Well... I'm not the most enthusiastic hiker, but I do love scenes that look like this.

  3. We always tend to get stuck in some sort of mist/rain when we go hiking, it adds to the countryside I think!
