Giethoorn, Venice of the North

Giethoorn has such a simple beauty that it hardly seems real. A bohemian canal, small wooden bridges, vivid flowers and pretty thatched-roof farmhouses and a fairytale-like garden. I felt like I was in a completely different time period! It was absolutely stunning!

A Tourist in my own Country

Amidst rolling hills and meadows of the British countryside is The Cotswolds, a very famous place for people to explore. Secret gardens, charming rivers and lakes, and quaint architecture in the villages are all part and parcel of what to expect in the Cotswolds, and its location in the Thames Valley, just an hour or so away from London Paddington makes it one of the best getaways from urban life.

Update: The picturesque village Bibury that is taking you back in time to fairytales with dwarfs or with Harry Potter. Low windows, honey-coloured stone houses, enchant the eye and tickle the imagination.
