Yesterday was the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone, the original UK title, if we are being specific!) I have easily read the Harry Potter series far more than any other book, so while I struggle to deem one book as my “favorite”, it would certainly imply that HP is one I truly enjoy the most.
Our second night in the Cotswolds we spent in Bourton-on-the-Water and we stayed at The Garden Room at Strathspey. We loved our stay here – the family who lets out this room was very friendly! It was one of our favorite accommodations of our trip.
In Europe the best wool is English and in England the best wool is Cotswold

We returned from our vacation over a month ago, but I can’t leave out a post about the Cotswolds! I last left off with our tales of 2 rainy days in the Lakes District.
While our time in Edinburgh and St. Andrews was amazing, I was very much looking forward to the next leg of our trip – the Lakes District!
When our time in London came to a close, we headed north to Scotland.
To travel to Edinburgh, (Ed-in-bura) we took the train from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverly station. The four hour trip was delightfully picturesque.
London Baby! (I may or may not have said this a few times in the duration of our time in London.) Don’t know what that means? Watch here!We began and ended our trip in London. London Baby! Okay, that was the last time.
We spent 3 days in London and, while it was not nearly enough to experience everything, we were able to get a good , albeit brief, taste of the city.
This morning I woke up to a text from my little brother. “Man, update that blog already!”
If your little bro is asking for a update on your blog that usually focuses (erm, babbles) on topics like yellow paint chips, espresso cups and rainboots… I guess it’s about time.
Before we headed to England and Scotland for our trip, I had the best of intentions of writing a few posts and setting them up to publish while I was gone. As you can see, that never happened! I unpacked and repacked by backpack so many times it slipped my mind.
One of the great things about being a part of this crazy blog-land is learning from and connecting with other people you would never encounter in your day-to-day life.
Therefore, I’d love to get some input from you – my awesome readers!
Moose and I are traveling to the UK next month! We’ve never been there before and I’d love to get any “must-see” suggestions or tips from you guys!
