I prefer the countryside in any country. Sometimes after a few days in the city, I have a deep longing to be out and about in the countryside. The English countryside is so sumptuous, its hard to beat. Here at the North sea coastal town of Whitby, near York, the day was so lovely. I came with a coach tour of the Yorkshire moors and ended up here for lunch. Its still a fishing village and the menu was fish in all ways.
