On the Cotswold Way - Sheep and History
We're on the Cotswold Way in picture book England. This is the first wifi I've found so I'm taking the opportunity to blog about it.
The trail goes from Chipping Campden to Bath, basically west of London - 102 trail miles which we're walking in 8 days.
The terrain is undulating, up and down a couple of hundred feet. We're walking through pastures, past sheep and cows, old ruins and small villages. Cotswold is the England Americans imagine, with tea shops, women in large shopping bags going from store to stores and pubs - lots of pubs. We're staying in Bed and Breakfasts and small hotels, all organized by Contour Holidays.
It's a national trail, so the markings are very good so far. Still yesterday we managed to get royally lost, trying to find our lodging at the end of the day. What was going to be a reasonable 13-mile day ended up a 16 mile day and we stumbled into our room at 6:30 P.M.
We're starting Day 3. More when I find wifi again.
