The Misty Hills of Great Malvern

 We've spent the last 2 days in a charming little English town called Great Malvern, in Worcestershire. 
The town is built on beautiful green hills and surrounded by lush forests. It feels as though Robin Hood or knights on horseback might pop out at any moment.

We've been enjoying some proper English afternoon teas, and going for plenty of long walks through the misty forests.

 (this is wild garlic. It seems to grow everywhere up here. You can eat the flowers too... but it tastes just like biting into a garlic clove.)

The highlight of our stay in Malvern of course was watching my dear cousin Eleesha perform with her contemporary dance company, The National Dance Company of Wales
They were absolutely spectacular! 
I especially loved the first performance of the night which was a piece choreographed by my cousin herself. I am in complete awe of her amazing talent.

We're off to Amsterdam for the next 3 days. The forecast is calling for more rain, unfortunately (we can't seem to get away from it this vacation)... but I'm not complaining. We're having a wonderful time just the same.

I am in love with this post! Oh man, I have a thing for English countrysides where stories abound. And the dancing? What a treat! I would love to dance with that company.
