Coming from a home abundant with hills, adjusting to the Netherlands was a flat out shock. (Did you get my joke?) Endless views of a country below sea level. Let me tell you, it gets old, and living here, I really miss having any sense of depth or natural landscape. In search of the cure for my flat land woes, we set out for a weekend in the Lake District.

Pin this post for later!

Never heard of the Lake District? If you’re not from the UK its pretty likely that you haven’t – but you should know it! It is gorgeous, it’s hilly, and its got countless pubs and sheep. What more could you want.
