England 2010: An Introduction
I have been busy working on a series of posts about our recent trip to England. I have about 10 posts planned: one for each day of our trip, one for reflections, and one for the cut together video/slideshow. This is the best method I can come up with for recording memories and experiences for ourselves, and also sharing our trip with family and friends who have been clamoring for pictures and details. I’m purposefully titling these England 2010 in anticipation of one day returning.
Starting tomorrow, I will publish a new post each morning. This is also the first and last post in this series that I will be publishing on Facebook. If you normally click-through from there, you’ll either have to check the blog manually, subscribe via email (see the little box on the right-hand side under the “Who I Am” section?), or subscribe with a blog/RSS reader. Or if you’re not into the whole travelogue thing, you know to stay away.
By way of background, you may remember how it was that this trip came about in the first place. Jeff spent a week working in Oxford (while staying at a hotel in nearby Woodstock) before I joined him for a second week of vacation.
Update: Here are all the links in one place. Read about my getting to the first destination; our first evening in the Cotswolds; seeing the English countryside by bicycle; visiting Cotswold villages and local farm animals; exploring Oxford and Blenheim Palace; our first day seeing the sights of London; seeing Soho, the Tower of London, and The Mousetrap; exploring Kew Gardens, the British Library, and the British Museum; saying goodbye; and other reflections.
