Feel Safe & Be Safe
A Few Appetizers
London & The South East
All the sites of one of the world's great cities, plus Kent and Sussex, where all the major history of Britain unfolded. Canterbury, Hastings, Rye are a few of the famous places, but I will take you to places you have never heard of, but which are of great historical significance or general interest.
The West Country
On our way west we can see Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath and then onto the lovely counties of Devon and Cornwall - moors, lovely little fishing villages, gardens, a theatre on the cliffs, gorgeous scenery.
The Cotswolds & The Midlands
Honey stone villages and towns in rolling hills. Quiet streams, cream teas and peace are the hallmarks of the Cotswolds. A short ride away there is Warwick with it's mighty Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birth place of Shakespeare. Come with me to Sulgrave Manor to see where the Stars and Stripes originated.
Portmeirion, North Wales
Outstanding scenic beauty, plus castles, lakes, Portmeirion (where "The Prisoner" was filmed), mountain steam railways, Victorian seaside towns and more scenic beauty.
The Lake District
An area of Northern England famous for not only its lakes, but its mountains, its steamships and of course, Wordsworth.
From the wonderful City of Edinburgh to the Highlands and Islands and the Border Country, this land ooozes history and stunning scenery.
So many interesting places - here are just a few:-
Edam, Volendam, Marken, Arnhem (Market Garden), Amsterdam & Zuiderzee
The beautiful city of Bruges (known as the Venice of the North), the
Ardennes, a wonderful forested area where the Battle of the Bulge took place
Of course there's Paris, but also the D-Day Beaches & other wonders of Normandy, Monet's Garden, The Vendee, The Loire, Mr Hulot's Statue and the Submarine Pens at StNazaire.
The Moselle & Rhine Rivers, Black Forest, Berlin & Kastell.
Tuscany, Siena, Florence, Venice & Rome.
Seville, Madrid, Barcelona, the Mountains of the Moon & the Alhambra Palace.
I could use up page after page - hopefully these few will whet your appetite!
