A Cotswold village on a Sunday....

This area is very beautiful and the villages are so cute - but so very clogged with tourists. We had a look as we sat in the traffic but could find nowhere to park so just moved on....
You missed the heat wave!

OMG, that traffic is awful. What bad luck you couldn't stop and look around.

Nice village- so much traffic! Could be somewhere around here too!

When it is wet, they all get in their cars. When it is very hot, the same thing. Hard to win in the Cotswolds in Summer with the narrow roads and lack of parking, but I hope you enjoyed it. Heatwave is coming back today!

@suzanne234 What a lovely thought Suzanne - thank you for the suggestion. I just googled Lincoln and the closest we got to there was Bakewell. We're now in Edinburgh and fly from here to Copenhagen. so I'm afraid we won't be able to do a meet up. It would have been lovely to meet you in person! Cheers Rob :)

@golftragic The little villages are co cute - but I think we may have come at a very busy time of the year!

@casablanca Hi Casablanca - we're having a ripper time!! The narrow roads are interesting - but what has amazed us is how fast some of your drivers drive on the motorways! Our speed limit on highways is 60m.p.h. - and it's quite heavily policed too. We drove over "The Struggle" from Ambleside to Ullswater - that was fabulous! :)

@robz Ah, well done! We adore The Lake District, such a beautiful place. And that is the first region the boys hike through on the Coast to Coast. Lots of altitude to gain and hard work to do but well worth it. So glad you are enjoying it :)

@robz Wow sounds like quite an adventure your having Rob. We are in Edinburgh in a couple of weeks, I've never stopped there, just drove through when I was about 16, I'm so looking forward to it. Maybe next time you do a grand tour we can meet up!

@robz I'd say so, don't they have their main holidays about now? About 20 years ago I was in London (briefly) about this time. Wanted to see what I could so hopped on one of those bus tours, but after seeing a few sites (all with big queues) the whole place grid-locked and most of us got off and walked to wherever. A bit scary since I had no idea of where I was, and only a foggy idea of where I was going. Whew.

@suzanne234 Next time sounds good - Errol always says you have to leave something good for next time!! We are loving Edinburgh - it's architecture is amazing - so sombre but enthralling. Errol has even tried haggis - it got a thumbs up! :)

@golftragic We're having 4 days in London before we fly home - hope we cope! I think we will try to use the metro as much as possible - definitely not a car! :)

@robz I'll be interested to hear how London goes - apart from horrendously expensive. Being 20 years younger and on a tight budget I stayed in student accommodation which was very exxy and bloody awful, far worse than any student accomodation I've stayed in anywhere else. I'd spent a week at a conference at St Andrew's in a very posh student hall (think the Royals) so it was a real culture shock!! Tried haggis though and I liked it too.
