Cotswolds adventuring

February 27, 2006 at 10:10 pm | Posted in personal, travel | 7 Comments

Mum and dad navigating arround BurfordI have just spent a very happy weekend exploring the Cotswolds with my family. I had Friday afternoon off, so we took this as a perfect opportunity to go for lunch at the Bell in Charlbury near where I work, then explore the local villages a little.

We drove up to Islip, the most humorously literal village I have ever seen, all the houses were called things like ‘river view’, ‘the old smithy’ and suchlike, the main street was ‘the walk’, I found this all very funny. Afterwards we went to the Hotel and watched DVDs and ate popcorn and cake.

We went to a number of other little towns over the weekend, including Burford, Woodstock, Blenheim palace and Bourton on the water (so called ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’) all very pretty, I think Burford was my favourite, every so picturesque.

On Saterday night I even managed to successfully introduce my family to Tapas!

  1. I read that bit as ‘popcorn cake’. Does such a thing exist, and if so where can I get it? And if not, why not?

    And isn’t Laura from Burford?

  2. ooh popcorn cake does sound good, I have heaps of popcorn left over I wonder how I could make it into cake …

    I think Laura might be from Burford, I didn’t remember at the time though, otherwise I might have been able to wave randomly in the direction of her parents house :)

  3. Hey, Islip is the next village to mine! It’s great round here, ain’t it?

  4. Looks like you enjoyed you adventure, big time! I’ve seen those houses too in lslip, aren’t they extraordinary? Oh well, maybe I need some popcorns too.

  6. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off

    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when

    browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin

    might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Many thanks!

  7. Реальность указывает, что переход на “операционку” Виндовс 10 на PC или нетбуке/ноутбуке может быть обусловлен разными предпосылками. А этоскачать turbo pascal abc бесплатно видал?
    так, например, заявленный переход на Windows “десятку” осуществляется в частности, если был куплен совершенно новый персональный компьютер либо ноутбук.
