When I was in college, I spent a semester in London and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the beautiful Lake District area one weekend. Five of us traveled there, stayed in a charming bed and breakfast with a gorgeous view of sheep dotting the hillsides surrounding the house in the country.
Dove Cottage, located in Grasmere in the Lake District, was William Wordsworth’s home for a few years. I had written a research paper on Wordsworth for a high school English class. Little did I know that two years later I’d be close enough to visit.
The Lake District is a captivatingly beautiful area. I remember walking and walking and walking… from the bus stop to where we were staying and visiting in that area. I also remember eating fish and chips served in newspaper.
