Hello,
I like more the mountain of Wales and the fishing village. If i could to choose, i'll like to live at the countryside. But the job keep me in the city.

I prefer to live in country side. But due to work I need to live in the city.

There is an error, the video says `video forbidden`, please fix this. thanks

Hello nmenag,
I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the video. I've checked the page and the video is working correctly, so the problem is a local one. Please check the settings on your device and perhaps try accessing the page from a different device (a laptop or desktop computer rather than a mobile device) to see if that helps.

what I like the most out of the various landscapes is lakes.
I really admire Windermere lake. it poses a very relaxing view.
I prefer to live in a countryside because it is peaceful and there are beautiful sceneries.

Among the places that Richard visited, I liked the Windermere lake. The view was picturesque and the nature was exquisitely calming to the soul. And if I was asked as to where I would prefer to live, that would be in the countryside. The countryside shows the real beauty of untouched nature where you can live with simplicity and where the time just flows with peace like a river. City life is more like a water rafting- everything is almost in a rush.

What kind of countryside do you like best? Which of the places that Richard visits most interest you? Do you prefer to live in the city or in the countryside?

the best kind of countryside are fields and lakes .the most interesting places that Richard visited is Windermere lake.
i prefer to live in countryside.
please correct

I am glad to read this information.

I like mountains, these are amazing, the nature around them, the peaks melt and many waterfalls come down, the lakes and all the fauna and flora related to this system is beautiful. I would like visit Great Britain cities and countryside, if you ask me where I prefer to live, I would choose countryside.
