UK Trip 2011

I had never been to England, but have always wanted to go. So, when Isabel invited me to tag along and keep her company while her daughter was at soccer school across the pond, I jumped at the chance.  We had planned on going on this trip for months and months, but didn’t make any specific plans about where we would be, only that we would end our trip in London.  So other than booking our airfare and London B & B, we didn’t have a plan.

Isabel, having gotten to Manchester (close to where her daughter was at camp) the day before me, picked me up at the airport.  Our first day was spent driving through the Snowdonia area of Wales. Gorgeous landscapes, quaint villages and ancient castles were on the menu that day, and I couldn’t have been happier.  Here we are at the beginning of our journey, stopping for a bite to eat at a farm shop/restaurant.

The Old Mill House B & B. Paul and Paddie were the perfect hosts. This was definitely our favorite place we stayed on our trip.022
