What is Your Favourite Driving View? #VROOMwithaview

We go on lots of family days out and one of the best things about not driving myself is that as a passenger I get to look out of the window at the beautiful countryside rather than concentrate on the road!

Here's my entry...
A view of the English countryside #VROOMwithaview

In August we went camping on the shores of Lake Windermere and for a treat on the way home we decided to visit South Lakes Wild Animal Park to see the animals. The children were excited and it was a sunny summer day so we wanted to get there as soon as possible so my husband decided to select the 'shortest route' option on the Sat Nav...
It seemed so much quicker that the other options, almost a straight line in fact! At first we couldn't understand why the Sat Nav was recommending the alternative routes, until we realised that it was taking us up and down steep and narrow country roads, it wasn't long before the roller-coaster like roads took effect on the children and we had to get out the sick bags! We started to regret our decision, but then we turned a corner and were suddenly struck with the most stunning views of the British countryside that I almost forgot the pungent scent of the warm car...
Out came the camera and I enjoyed the beautiful sights the Lake District had to offer.
You can have your rolling hills of the San Bernardino Pass and the curved perfection of Lysebotn Road, I personally don't think there's anything better than looking out across glorious green fields and brilliant blue skies and not seeing another car for miles....
I'd love to see your favourite views! Let me know if you enter and Good Luck!
I was gifted a voucher in exchange for writing about this competition.
