Planning the Road Trip
After much deliberation and pouring over the AA Road Atlas, the Britain (and Ireland, but we're not going there this time) Road Map and our trusty Rough Guide to Britain Guide book we have finally come up with an intended route for our Big OE next month. We arrive in London and have a week re-acquainting ourselves with this wonderful city and exploring places of interest, which will include a trip on the London Eye!! Then it's off by train to catch up with our friends Dot and Derek and their Narrowboat Gypsy Rover to travel the length of the Llangollen Canal for a week.
We then collect our rental car and the planned intineray is as follows:
Birmingham, Cambridge, Cotswold's, Bristol, Salisbury, Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury and places in between of course. We have allowed for a few extra days spare towards the end to give us a bit of flexibility with our travels.
Jenny has taken possession of the Rough Guide book and has "pink stickered" so many places to go and visit we don't really think we will get to see them all!! But planning a trip is half the fun isn't it.
