A visit to the famous Chatsworth House two days ago.
I have one week left of this trip, and it is being spent in a cottage in England’s Peak District. In the village of Bradwell, with horses riding up our street, the area looks like something out of a Jane Austen adaptation.
This is one part of England I haven’t visited before, and so far it is even prettier than I expected.
The view from my bedroom:
We’re finishing up a week-long stay in York, and nature has given us a gorgeous Monday morning. Yes, it’s cold, but… it’s so pretty!
Also, here are some pictures from our trip to the enormous (and spectacular) Fountains Abbey yesterday (you can thank Henry VIII for destroying it!).
The luxurious Harewood House in Yorkshire, England. We stopped for a visit on the way to York two days ago.
A trip to the isolated Devenish Island in Northern Ireland yesterday afternoon.
And sunset in Enniskillen.
County Tyrone, and Omagh in particular, are associated with the worst bomb of The Troubles in Northern Ireland, and other than the Ulster American Folk Park, you’re not going to find many (or any) tourists.
Below is the town of Omagh itself, including the interior of the Catholic church and the Sinn Féin office, and also the folk park.
Morning views from our apartment in Enniskillen (Northern Ireland), which is right on Lough Erne.
Also, Slieve League, Europe’s tallest cliffs, in Donegal (Republic of Ireland). They are three times the height of the much more famous Cliffs of Moher.
And Donegal Castle.
And Tully Castle (in Northern Ireland).
