Spring 2005 - Southern England

April 29 - May 29, 2005: Four weeks in England

One week each in four places, all in the Southwest of England (Wiltshire, Somerset, Cotswolds, Devon). We switched between city and countryside each week.

Pauline and Steve are on this trip. We had previously spent a month in England in September 2004.

Note: April 27 2006, just a few days before leaving on our next trip to England and I finally finished this trip report!! The first two weeks were on my blog, but after that I did not keep it up to date. It was good to review this trip just before leaving on our next one - it reminds me to pack warmer clothes!!
