City Vs. Country

Today’s prompt is City vs Country – do you prefer a city break when you travel, or to get out amongst nature? Or combine the two Share your stories of your best city trips, outdoor adventures, or what you love most about either type of trip.  The link up this week will be extended for two weeks instead of one, so you have plenty of time to join the link up and check out everyone’s posts!
For me I really think it depends. I could not completely right off city because I love traveling to cities all around the world. However I do greatly love and appreciate the beauty that is country even in the ‘backyard’ of where we live presently in Bath, England.  When people here find out I have an American accent, they always ask where I am from in the US.  Since Hawaii is the longest place I have lived anywhere in the US, I tend to go with my island answer. To be responded with ‘What? Why would you move from Hawaii to England???’  While I love Hawaii and cannot wait to go back, there are equally many reasons why I love life here.  One is getting to witness and experience the seasons.  Autumn is upon us and what better way to see it than out in the country.  I work in the city of Bath which can get quite busy with tourists and the day to day.  It is why I crave being outside in the country.  Especially this time of year. The leaves are amazing, the mornings are getting colder, and the countryside is juat as picturesque.  I just love putting on my music and taking long walks and remembering every moment how blessed I feel to be here.  Enjoy your moments and let me know in the comments what you love most about where you live at the moment. Is it the city or the country? Or both?

    Gorgeous snapshots! I also get the “Why would you move from NZ?” question – allll the time :)

  • Sandra Dötsch

    I think the same, if I prefer the city or country always depends, for example normally I prefer nature, since I live in big cities, but Rio was one of the most beautiful cities I have been to so far :)

  • Marianne

  • AmyMacWorld

    Although I can imagine how wonderful life on Hawaii would be, I would miss the seasons too much!!

  • Andi Fisher

    Country with a city about an hour away! I like the peace and quiet and food but also like to keep up with restaurants and the city food scene.

  • Rosie @Eco-Gites of Lenault

    I was born in the country and after a brief spell in a city for University and a period on the urban fringe I am back where I feel happiest – a deeply rural setting. However because I spend so much time in amongst Nature’s beauty I do enjoy the odd trip to cities … just not too often!!

    I have NEVER met an Italian that hasn’t asked me, after they find out I’m Canadian why I would move to Italy. They have no idea that North Americans would love to live in Europe. Beautiful photos in this post. I have to say that I equally love city and country getaways for different reasons. Sometimes you need art, museums, cool cafes and sometimes you need green hills and natural wonders.
