Exploring England with Our Minds and our Tummies

I’m so excited to be here at Heather’s place today. I live in England so Heather asked me to share some attractions and English food items with you. I thought it would be exciting to take you on a virtual tour around our country, share some tasty recipes and show you the sights.

Love this - perfect for homeschooling - taking a virtual tour around England!
