Monday Moods: I feel... stereotyped.

When you think of England,
what images come to mind?

Green grass, sheep, patchwork hillside, stoney cottages?

Yeah, me too.

Especially after exploring the Cotswolds this weekend.

I took a group on a seven hour walk/hike through the country side.

And if any of you want to do that,
come on over.

After going out there once,
I'm going to be finding any & every excuse to explore more of the Cotswolds.

We started at Bourton-on-the-Water
(also regarded as "The Venice of the Cotswolds")
walked up through Lower & Upper Slaughter,
and then up and around some hills.
Until we somehow circled back into town
in time to spend the afternoon in the garden of a tea room
 adjacent to Bourton-on-the-Water's famous canal.

The hike was very easy,
and the scenery was extremely rewarding.

I would highly recommend this day trip
for anyone who is looking to do something a bit less touristy
on their next trip to Britain...

 I would also highly recommend inviting me to go with you...

After all, 
I do know where the stop for homemade ice cream is along the way.
