"First trip to London, Cotswold Way, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon was absolutely wonderful! Our stay in Stratford at Ambleside was a perfect way start our trip. The flower garden at the front door was awash with color and so welcoming! Peter was a perfectly charming host, answered our questions and provided information about the area. Our double room with bath was nicely decorated, twin beds were comfortable and the night-time was quiet! Peter suggested several restaurants for dinner and even gave us a 10% off coupon for the one we chose. Ruth served a wonderful, filling breakfast and we enjoyed a few stories from Peter before we checked out. We really appreciated Ambleside's willingness to book us for one night on a weekend. Ambleside is about a 12 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes to the theater. This was our first experience staying at a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed Peter and Ruth's hospitality! ."

Our second day we decided to explore some of the surrounding market towns. Ripon has another historic cathedral. The story of the cathedrals was cross stitched in cushions that were on the outer stone benches. It took the stitchers 4 ...
... to the remarkable York Minster: the largest medieval cathedral in all of Northern Europe, the seat of the archbishop of York, primate of England, and one of the world's most beautiful Gothic buildings.
The present cathedral was constructed mainly between 1220 and1480, replacing a Norman minster that was built in the 11th century, which in turn was built on the site of a Roman basilica. Fragments of the remains of both of these previous edifices were ...
... of things at a thrift store and Taylor bought some Magic The Gathering cards. Our big thing for today was to visit York Minster. The place was beautiful inside and out, not to mention ginormous. All together I believe we spent a good two or three hours walking through just the basement and first floor.
When we'd had enough walking on stone floors for today, it was time to carry ...
I leave for Delhi on Wednesday and have a few weeks in India and Nepal. What can I say - I had a multi-entry visa from Christmas and figured I may as well get my money's worth considering how much of a hassle it can be to get one!
York to Manchester in the afternoon, then plane to Heathrow, and out for the overnight flight to Delhi.
