My mum grew up in England and moved to Australia when she met my dad. As a result, as children, my brother and I were shipped back to England to spend time with our extended family and grandparents. Cheshire and the British Countryside that we visited so often (7 times at 18 years old) feels like home to me and, despite it never being my official home, I often feel homesick for England.

If you haven’t visited this section of Northern England, I highly recommend it. Chester, a city in Cheshire, is a popular tourist spot, especially for short stays. However, the surrounding area is also very beautiful and worth exploring. You can learn more about this area on Cheshire’s official tourism website.
