We have a guest coming over with the dog, she’s small but she’s travelled round the world, this is her first time in England and it’s not easy, it’s complicated.
Naturally I begin to make plans where and what to show and how to get there. In Britain, it is important, if you do not like to waste money. We do not. In England in general, since the propoganda during the war “Make, fix and mend” saving philosophy has not disappeared completely. And now it’s just fashionable to be “eco”.
Buy tickets in advance for everything and everywhere and save 50 pounds (a walk on the Thames, Madame Tussauds, “Millennium Eye”) Many museums are free, if only not the exhibition.
Then there is a choice of train, car or bus. Can’t take the dog on the train, which is a pity because I can get a round trip ticket for £5 (compared to about £32 for regular fares). So it’s the train, because it’s not as fun by car (you can get stuck in traffic for 3 hours and cost about £30 for petrol). We usually go by bike, but there are guests on board.
That’s our choice of company, we’ll go with the principle that if you buy sooner, cheaper! One small point, different time of travel, different cost of travel.
Came in at 9 paid 100 came in at 7 or 12 paid 54. And if you book in advance for off-peak (must be a better word in Russian) time, and quite 15 pounds. “Simples.”
What lives in the countryside and why is it worth going here? The question is right – the answer is vastness, churches from the 10th century and Gothic, seals, birds, its own cuisine – Lincolnshire soso and plam delirium and oh cheeserr And such wonderful views that they even came to London to shoot here in Lincolnshire! St James’s Lough, Lincolnshire Wolds is the tallest church in England.
19th century enthusiasts brought in a lot of things, and it did a lot of damage. on the list of enemies is rhododendron, this weed, American crayfish, grey squirrels, rabbits.
Here’s England as it was years, years ago. Yes, if you see a Miss Marple in the street, don’t let them out of your sight in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.
There are Poles and Lithuanians, Latvians and Portuguese stand around harvesting crops and working the fish, but that’s not the vacation of the county, it’s a flat country and many people think there’s nothing here but endless fields of rape on a flat surface like a saucer. Holland and New Holland to the south in the spring in a frenzy of colors of tulips and daffodils.When the Dutch conquered Britain they brought their art of growing flowers and dug straight canals through all the Fens. The Fens are plains. There are some famous flying bases here. Scampton is the best known in the world – where the Red Arrows are berthed. In June you can often see them in the sky – if you can, you can go to the festival. Here is Kennigsboo, where princes were taught to fly.
It’s near Boston, from Boston we go to New York. I’d like to say a few words about Grantham and Sleaford, but it’s almost Cambridge.
I’ll certainly say something about Lauf, capital of the Wods, where Tennyson lived, M Gandhi, Bjork and the Arctic Monkeys came to stay, and the craftsman’s town of Alford, home of John Adams, founder of Virginia, where he came from Alford to learn manners, swordsmanship and to be a gentleman. From Doddington, Lincolnshire, Matthew Flinders and his faithful cat set out to chart the new colony he called Australia.
Here is England’s beloved holiday capital, Skegness, where the whole family vacation in Butlins = All I advise cheap and quiet-no one will enter and just do not let the children out. Butlins is not just a recreation center-it’s as we say “instituteyushennye” And next to Meiblesthorpe with its funny rooms for bathers.However boring in winter, almost a ghost town …
But by winter, the seals arrive. In Dona Nook.
and baby seals are born.
There’s Cadwell Park for those who love superbikes, but this is the motorcycling side of town, and anyone with plenty of class and health has a bike – whether you’re a lawyer, a barista, or a doctor.
And you can take a map and walk like “ramblers”-it all started in the 19th century when socialist-minded Victorians decided that everyone has the right to enjoy the beauty of the country. In Scotland and Wales there is a different approach to private land-all belongs to God with some adjustments, of course. So we roam and come to the woods and there before the place of bikers, around the corner Chocolate Factory. Do not believe that in England, only Cadbury, there are many little plants where they make the most unusual chocolate, but of course the most incredible colors of sugar tubes and sugar mice – that’s what you need to get out of here.
They love to have fun and all sorts of fairs and festivals here – a must visit! So much hospitality! Yes, sometimes it’s better to send a card with the letter carrier – inviting you to visit, but sometimes the whole street sits at the table so that even provincial groups can celebrate the Harvest, Her Majesty’s Jubilee.
And this is my favorite thing – the thing’s name is Violetta, the first tank – of course not the first, but this is one of the first!

These are 11th- and 13th-century stained-glass windows of the main cathedral of Lincoln.
In addition to churches built by Vikings and Normans, there are many Roman monuments.
This is the Queen’s Edith, funded by Lady Godiva of England Many “houses” with all the same families as under Elizabeth I. Such as Diddington Hall (The Mansion House itself is not particularly interesting, better to go to Darby in Chartsworth-for someone a Duchess and someone Cavendish).
If you know anybody, you might discover the perfect gem. Find your horse, and it will take you for a ride.
Or your garden-people come here to see what’s growing and don’t hide the blackness of their nails. It rains and it doesn’t rain! Here’s my garden, here are my birds! Everyone feeds and watches the birds. We cherish our privacy but we’re glad to get together
