my favourites, LR's favourites

This was a 'do it yourself' UK holiday - no tour operator, no travel agent - just a Rick Steves guide and Google! We had one pre-defined objective - the All Together Better Health conference in Oxford. Beyond that we had a blank itinerary for the other 12 days or so.

So, what does one go see with about 2 weeks to kill in England? Of course, there are the obvious attractions in London, and Stonehenge was high on my list. Beyond that there's a mixed bag of interesting stuff scattered all over the countryside. We decided to rent a car for a week and see Cornwall and the Cotswolds. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Then, what would a travelogue be without at least one personal reflection:

Also, LR let me post her pictures with this scrapbook. While it's obvious we don't stray far from each other, we each look for different details and capture our own unique points of view.

We were in the UK for 2 weeks. In those two weeks I came to appreciate a number of things. Number 1 - Pasty. I will be learning to make pasty. I don't miss the narrow streets and crushing traffic. I don't miss driving on the wrong side of the road. Just the other day, though, I reached in my jacket pocket and thought 'Wow, I wish I had a nice, hot, pasty in there!'
