Tour Date 10th – 17th April 2019
Thank you, thank you, thank you for our trip. It was packed with all things Jane Austen and then some. Our guide, Kim, was extremely well-versed on Jane Austen as well as British history….we learned so much! Our driver, Bob, was phenomenal at getting the coach through very small streets and country lanes, not to mention loading and unloading our luggage twice a day. This was my first visit to the UK and will not be the last. I penned some thoughts I would like to share:
I have climbed the bell tower of an ancient church. I’ve had lunch at a Norman battlefield and touched the tomb of a Tudor Queen. I’ve visited the home of a living Duke. I have dipped my hands into the chilly waters of the English Channel and breathed the wild air of the Pennines. I have reached into the past and opened my imagination to new horizons. I have seen the land of my ancestors and will never be the same again.
