One of the things we love about our lifestyle is the length of time we spend in a place. Having the opportunity to stroll about areas to take in the sights and simply absorb the feel of a location is wonderful, I understand it is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is certainly ours.
Once we headed south from Scotland we had a number of house sits lined up with a few days extra in between. Perfect! It gave us the chance to do some catching up and exploring. First on the list was a stop over in Stratford-Upon- Avon. It did entail 7 hours of travel on three different trains, but it was flawless, despite threatened strike actions we arrived ready to go. For a beer that is.
Circumstances worked out that Karen and I were able to meet up with a couple of friends we had made in Belize several years ago. So this eclectic group, of a lady from Wales, a lady from Texas with her husband, and 2 vagabonds from Canada were able to do some sightseeing around the beautiful city of Stratford as well as taking in a play. It was a blast.
As I mentioned in the previous post we are now settled into the outskirts of London. Enjoying exploring the neighbourhood with the dogs and getting a couple of short trips in to London to snoop about a bit. Life is Good.
