The Cotswolds

If you've never been to England, and you're preconceived notion of what the country looks like is anything similar to mine, you'd love the Cotswolds.  It's the epitome of everything I think England should be.  Green rolling hills, stone walls, sheep, and towns with names like Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Moreton-in-Marsh Curiosity Shop... leaves you, well, curious.

It's the type of place you wish you were riding through in a 1950's British convertible with the top down in order to see it all... in as much style as the landscape has.  And I'm certain the beauty of the landscape only enhances as the Summer season approaches.  But green leaves or no green leaves, the Cotswolds is still picture perfect.

i have to admit that i am really quite jealous of all this traveling that you're getting to do. I'm with you on what my image of England is/should be.

ps. love your list of "things i never knew i wanted to do but did anyway..."

I would gain so much weight living there! Those chocolates look good! As well as all the other mouth watering goodies you have taken pictures of!
