We may be a small country but we're a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter. David Beckham's right foot. David Beckham's left foot, come to that. David (Hugh Grant) from Love Actually

The United Kingdom - known for their love of tea, its rainy days, and complaining about the weather while drinking said tea. The country consists of a group of islands off the northwest coast of Europe and can easily be considered a cultural superstar. It is home to literary greats as William Shakespeare, J.K. Rowling, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and J.R.R. Tolkien.  It is the birthplace of soccer, rugby, cricket, boxing, and golf. And it is also home to, of course, the Queen and the royal family.

There is a familiarity while traveling around the United Kingdom. A feeling of comfort like you've been here before. Maybe it's the countless movies and stories like Harry Potter, Peter Pan, King Arthur, or even Mary Poppins that have engrained the land in our minds as children. Maybe it’s the architecture, buildings (some over a thousand years old) mashed in throughout the land that have been around since the Middle Ages. It gives the place a lived-in look; stone steps actually worn away with years and years of use. Whatever the reason, there seems to be a feeling of home as you travel through the busy streets of London, explore the quaint villages of the Cotswolds, and catch a glimpse of Edinburgh Castle as you eat ice cream on Haymarket Street.

The landscape consists of a unique blend of rugged terrain in areas like Scotland and rolling pastures of farmland that has been tended for centuries. This makes it an ideal place for hiking and exploring. You can actually hike the entirety of the mainland with the longest mainland distance in the UK is from Land’s End in Cornwall to John o’Groats in Caithness (1215 miles / 1956 kilometers).  Or you can try your hand at becoming a “Munroist.” - a person that has hiked every 282 peaks throughout Scotland (a munro is any mountain that is over 3,000 ft). Also, because it's an island, it is home to some of the best coastline throughout the world with more than 70 beaches in England claiming “blue flag” status.
