A weekend in Hampshire

This weekend Joel and I ventured down to Hampshire to visit his parents and brother Tom, who were house and dog sitting for a relative.

I’ve never been to Hampshire before. It’s a lovely area, beautiful nature, lots of cottages, small pubs, rivers, and forests. A real English country-side feel. We relaxed in the massive house, walked the dogs, and had drinks and dinner by the river-side, and explored Winchester, the previous capital of England. I wouldn’t mind moving in to a cottage in that area at some point, get a dog and a few horses and enjoy country life – with only an hour on the train to London.

One weekend was definitely not enough. We will be back 🙂

This is what beer gardens look like in Hampshire. Not bad, eh? Photo by Joel.

Country-side walks. This should be mandatory for every Londoner ever so often.
