Oceans and Castles from Benjamin Dowie on Vimeo.

EVEN BEING THE ANGLOPHILE that I am, I still often forget how big of a country the United Kingdom is. There are so many cities and villages beyond London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff, and sometimes I wonder how I didn’t get to see them all when I lived in there. But then again, with a land mass size that is slightly smaller than the state of Oregon, I guess I wouldn’t really have had time.

This video is great because it shows a side of the United Kingdom most people don’t get to see — unpopulated seashores, bright green highland mountains, less famous castles, and some pretty scary roads. Cheers to filmmaker and editor Benjamin Dowie, for helping me substitute that trip to Brighton with some less crowded beach fronts.
