Good episode? Give it some love!
The Amateur Traveler talks to Zoë Dawes from TheQuirkyTraveler.com about England's Lake District. This beautiful pastoral area was made famous by the poets and artists in the romantic period, most notably William Wordsworth. Not far from industrial Manchester, the lake district is still a refuge for hikers and and other tourists tucked away in northern England. Zoë describes some of her favorite hikes like the coffin trail along the shores of Lake Windermere and favorite villages like Ambleside. Zoë says "we have what we call mountains, very quaint villages. It's a farming community area, a lot of history, a lot of literary artistic connections. There is a kind of microcosm of what England is, but you feel a little bit like you are stepping back in time as well."
