        Very caring staff with an interestingly decorated lobby. Rooms were quite bland and stinky but was an alright stay.

        Our stay in the United Kingdom this time is only about five days. We had travelled fairly extensively throughout the British Isles on our last trip and we always had planned to head South. The few days here were really only for getting over jet lag and for playing golf. Having done that, we hit the road to head to Birmingham and our flights to Spain.

        Along the way we stopped at a charming English town ...

        As Judy and David head off to work we are up and getting ready to drive south to do the Castle thing! Although we had a brief visit to Cardiff castle, Warwick will be the kids first real castle. Again I am blown away at the cost of entry however I know it is worth it. We start the trekking around the castle and although the weather has turned to custard we have a great day. Up and down the towers, along the walls, this is a great castle. The kids love ...

          Love and marriage, horse and carriage...

          ... not, it was perfect because it was just what I always imagined.

          So who would've thought hey! A little over 12 months since I arrived in England I'm happier than ever, and looking towards a future shared with Philo, who is so much more than I ever dreamed I'd find.

          And to think I scoffed before I left Australia when everyone said that I'd meet the man of my dreams over here!

          I stand corrected!

        ... that we had a look through. There wasn’t much of interest except a bookstall where we got an absolute bargain on another pile of books to try and fit in somewhere. We then ambled our way through the streets until we came to the second Shakespeare house. We were again left to visit it on our own as the other continued their shopping.
