The Cotswolds

On Monday, we wandered through the wonderful villages of the Cotswolds. These are the little country villages that have lasted hundreds of years and are charming and peaceful. First we stopped in Moreton in Marsh, then Stowe on Wold and finally Bourton on the Water, also known as the Venice of the Cotswolds.

I was a bit disappointed that we weren't able to find the thatched-roof houses. It gave me an entirely new perspective on giving other people directions! The nice people who live here know how to get around without the need for signs and simply think you'll find a Hamlet by "go down that way and turn right then turn right again." following these directions did allow us to see some very nice neighborhoods and villages, follow a single lane road where there was a traffic jam with two horses and then find the only road out blocked... That was fun.

The highlight of the day for the boys was finding the Cotswold Motoring Museum!

And look what I found inside- Three unique Caravans!

I've seen so many caravans on the roads in England, bring pulled by regular sedans! Thy are very brave...

Today we are off to Brighton, Arudel Castle and Dover. Cheers!
