I have lived in the country all my life and i feel very lucky that where i live is considered one of the most beautiful places in the UK, i take it for granted, but i know when i go to London or go with Master sometimes on his courses to cities when i get back i appreciate just how fortunate i am.
Its a novelty going to cities but i couldnt live in one, I have family that live in London and i love to go and see them but its such a fast paced way of life, the traffic, the people crowding the streets and dont get me started on the underground it scares the hell out of me and i guess i stick out like a sore thumb.
But i guess a lot of it is what your used to, i suspect many city people wouldnt want to live in the country i know my brothers wife doesnt like coming to visit here very often she considers it quiet and too isolated but its those very reasons and more of why i like it. Master and i both like going out for long treks, i like being amongst nature not concrete towers, i like the peacefulness and the quiet of being out in the woods and nothing but the sounds of birds and woodland animals and the smells..ok apart from cow and horse poo!
I love waking up, pulling my curtains and seeing the sea and its a 5 min walk to the nearest beach, of course it has its downfalls being a small village community everyone knows everyones business well at least they think they do! but its been a wanderful place to raise my children and because of the small community people look out for each other and my children have been able to go out and be safe, climb trees, make camps in the woods..the things i used to do when i was a child beats sitting at home playing on a game console.
