Sara's England Trip (May 2-23, 2008)



What an amazing trip! We had so much fun and couldn't believe how quickly it went by. We did so much it's hard to summarize it. But I will do my best and give you some of the highlights with some good pictures.

We started in London for about a week, staying with some friends. Then we headed to Wincester and Bath and into Southern Wales. We went all throughout Wales and spent two nights in Northern Wales before headed back into England and the Lake District. We spent 4 nights in the Lake District at the Bible college by husband attending for a year. Then we made the trip up to Edinburgh and Loch Ness. After 4 nights in Scotland, we came back to the Lake District for a night, headed down to Oxford for 1 night, and then back to London for our last 2 nights. Overall, we drove over 2,000 miles! It was a lot of driving but we got to see a lot of sights.



Here are some pictures to give you a clue:
