CotswoldsThis isn’t about an endurance adventure as such… more of a nice gentle few days of being a tourist in the Cotswolds, a lovely area of Britain characterised by rolling hills and ancient cream stone villages- I hate the overused phrase ‘quintessentially English’, but it was obviously invented for the Cotswolds.

My Dad and Step mum stay with me every August as they live in Spain, and as it was their 30th wedding anniversary this August we had a few days away.

Unfortunately the weather could have been better- we had rain more or less all day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and showers the rest of the time, but we made the best of it and ambled round quite a few places.

I woke early most mornings and went out for a pre-breakfast saunter, so all in all quite a lot of walking was done. Here’s a few pretty pictures;
