Roadtrip Disclaimer and Apology
12.08.2007 -17 °C
There are 4 factors that will limit our level of detail in blogging over the coming weeks which we had not foreseen. Firstly, there is at least 10 times as many places of interest and things to do and see than we could have possibly imagined scattered throughout the English countryside. Secondly, the number of available internet computers is next to none in most small towns. Thirdly, in the past week (drafting this entry on 12 August) we have visited some of the most exquisite castles, estates and historic sites yet seen on our adventures abroad not to mention all the towns and villages in between. It has taken us each evening to plan the following day whilst leaving time to live life, eat, find a campsite and enjoy reflecting on the day that blogging is harder to get to than ever. Finally, and most surprisingly we have enjoyed almost perfect weather and therefore cannot bear to be indoors at a computer, moreso it seems foolish not to count our blessings and get sun burnt instead.
Given the above disclaimer which should be read as an apology to frequent readers our subsequent blogging efforts, we hope, you will enjoy with less words and more photos than ever before. Depicting our journey through Britain, Wales and Scotland should be even easier to relay in person as we will be home in under a month (which is really unbelievable).
Please also note the following for all subsequent entries.
Based on our recent experience over the last week we would like to make the following general statement regarding visits to houses, gardens, historic sites, castles and natural environments. If we add no commentary or specific descriptions to our notes for the photos please assume the following applies;
"Location 'X' presented us with a glorious/unsurpassed/exceptional/exquisite/enjoyable insight and/or educational experience during our visit to the beautiful/extensive/astounding/lush/fascinating etc. architectural/furnishings/artworks/gardens/prehistoric monoliths/collections from 2000BC to 2007AD. Location 'X' is well worth the visit and/or a must see if you are touring Britain. We would like to thank/compliment/offer our best to the English Heritage/National Trust for all their hard work/dedication/enthusiasm/fanaticism to maintain/conserve this site. "
We will endeavour to find an internet location soon, currently we are in Bath and about to have a BBQ with a couple of friendly Australians we met yesterday, best wishes.
