No, but my parents lived there in the first world war, Dad was in the Royal Flying Corps, they lived the a tiny village of Fettercairn in Kincardineshire, do you know of it?, also I have friends who were born in Edinburgh, a married couuple who now live in southern England
I'm one of the few sassanachs who can tell the difference between Edinburgh, [beautiful city] & Glaswegian accents!, you ought to pay a visit to the south of England, you'd love it, I know!

Hope you make it, try some of the rich members, they're out there, maybe, [don't hold your breath though!] they might treat you, perhaps a rich female member, if they see your physique in your profile, she'd have be tall though!

I have been in england a few times. Didn't see much of the country side because I was in London almost the whole time.

meh,

I live in england...

currently residing (for the next 4 days) in a town called brackley, thats in south northants and on the borders of north oxfordshire and buckinghamshire, (in fact I've walked to buckingham before -silly me)... so that pretty much puts me in the middle, everything around me is countryside, there is even a farm in the middle of the town...

but on sunday I'm moving to Bristol!! which isn't so much in the countryside... However I'll be working in Bath so I get to drive through the lovely avon countryside everyday (choking it up with my exhaust fumes!)

If u go to europe try visiting as many countries as possible, some are very different from each other. And yes, I walking outside last tuesday at about 11:30 pm. I think that that´s not too smart if u live in the USA. (ofcourse there are some small and quiet towns too)

My cousin lives in New Duston, Northampton, now you're a southerner wow!, the weather will be better, he is always saying it isn't good there.
You ought to visit my locality, the Isle of Wight, now you're fairly near, my late wife & I visited Bath once, nice city, hope the traffic congestion has improved though, we got in OK, but getting out took twenty minutes!
