MISSING THE IDYLLIC PEACE AND QUIET OF WENSLEYDALE!

Hello my beautiful friends,

Last year my family and I spent an idyllic weekend in the Yorkshire Dales. It was a time of having no phone signal and no internet and let me tell you it was sooo relaxing.

For once I wasn’t reaching for my phone every two minutes to check Facebook, post a picture on Instagram and keep checking how many likes I was getting. It made me realise how addicted I was to modern technology and the need of likes from others – I hated it! Instead of wasting time and energy online which often leaves me full of negative energy as I am a fiend for comparing myself to others, I was able to spend quality time with my family, whether puzzling together, going on walks and appreciating the pastoral beauty around us, playing games, cooking together or just all relaxing with a book in front the wood burning stove. It was a completely different atmosphere and I felt so happy and relaxed throughout our long weekend.

The countryside is so beautiful! We went walking, saw waterfalls and castles, tasted some delicious Wensleydale cheese and just enjoyed the most breathtaking views. I really need more weekends away like this, time to unwind, connect with nature and spend quality time with family!
