    "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! ."

    ... it! You have to commit and go for it apparently!! Anyway, got a train and two planes to go before we get there! I really enjoyed writing my blog when we went to Sri Lanka and a lot of you said you enjoyed reading it so that's why I'm doing it again! Hopefully the wifi will be good throughout the trip so I can update you all on our Asian adventure! Kirsty ...

    A flying visit to York

    ... York with 3 hours to get a sense of the city - thankfully, there was a luggage storage service close to the station, so I dropped the bags and hit the road.

    Walking the city wall is always an awesome experience - treading the paths of all kinds of ordinary people over the ages. Ruins have the same meditative effect on me - I just want to be there and imagine who else might have been where I am - I wonder what they might ...

    Did you say you're 101???!!

    ... Dennis has always had a very keen interest in cricket. Ronald lived in Knaresborough and later worked in Leeds as an accountant with Ernst & co.

    He told me that the primary school by Stockwell Lodge was built fairly recently, so neither Henry nor Frank would have attended it. I was keen to check school rolls, but of course with my luck, it happened to be half-term break, so no schools were open. The grammar ...

    ... The castle was built by the Normans and of course, the Romans were here too. This area on castle hill is basically all we saw of Lincoln before we were back on the highway heading for York.

    Our accommodation in York is amazing -an airbnb find yet again. A purpose built flat overlooking the fields of canola and barley(bright yellow right now) with a few rabbits jumping around. The attention to detail is impressive - we were greeted with a freshly baked sponge cake, ...

    ... tour to take tonight, but the rest is just a bunch of gimmicky, touristy activities. Instead, we stroll through the ancient streets, grab some snacks and ice cream and just take in the history as we await our ghost tour.

    The ghost tour, called York's Terror Trail is not so much a ghost tour as a history tour specializing in the more gory details of the city. It's almost better because it's not frightening in the least to the kids, more entertaining ...
