I’ve had a great affection for all things English since I could remember. I think that is one of the reasons I decided to write historical romance set in Regency England. In 2010, I was fortunate enough to travel to England and explore the southern part of the country. What a great adventure! We visited tiny villages with thatched roof cottages to the bustling grand city, London.
So I got another opportunity to visit again last November. We explored the northern part of England, Wales, and Scotland. From Manchester, Chester, Liverpool, York, to tiny towns in Wales I could not possibly pronounce (I have my doubts the Welsh can even pronounce them,) the landscape was breathtaking! Even the weather cooperated for November. In fact, it was downright warm at times. Must have brought a little Texas sunshine to them. Maybe I should charge for that? And then we went to Edinburgh. Holyrood Palace is something to behold! Finally, we wrapped things up in Paris. The city was lovely, the people were gracious, and the wine was outstanding! Can’t wait to go back.
Stay tuned for my next grand adventure. I already have something in mind…
