L is for Landscape

Driving away from Calais, we were greeted by the French countryside.

Ah the French countryside … Beautiful, isn’t it?

These photos were taken from inside our car, except for the one below,

I took it when we had to stop when we did a wrong turn.

The French landscape is a bit different from the English one.

For one I think they have more space (obviously since France is so much bigger than England!). They also don’t have any hedges on the side of the road like the one we have here.  What they have lovely tree-lined-roads, which sadly, I wasn’t able to capture.

And as we drove on towards the Picardy region, we were greeted by a downpour like I’ve never experienced in England before.  It was that bad.  For awhile, my husband even struggled to see, as our windshield wipers were having a hard time keeping up with the rain.  Ah the rain, for the next few days, it hardly stopped.  It almost felt like it was going to rain all through-out our holiday.  Summers in England are a bit famous for that, but in France?  We were promised warm and bright days…

To be continued.

    A big open space. It is different, although I offer up Cambridgeshire to rival big landscapes with no hedgerows. Although I don’t think the UK does tree-lined roads as well as they do on the Continent. Hope the rain did stop. #AlphabetPhoto

    • Oh I didn’t notice that about Cambridgeshire, though to be fair we seldom drive up over there. I love England’s landscape too, though I was also really impressed with Scotland! 🙂

        • Hahaha. Sorry Kate, the truth is, I’m not doing it intentionally … just don’t really have the time right now to blog! But I’ll get down to doing it … Promise! 😉

    • Beautiful indeed! Actually, the French landscape reminded me a bit of home 😉
