Glad you enjoyed your trip to the uk , hope it did not rain to much for you, if you come back for another visit in the future i would recommend Scotland as well a truly wonderful place and also Kent the garden of England, lovely country side and loads of history if your in to that sort of thing
I’d recommend one day following the Thames to it’s end from London. You’ll go past Hadleigh Castle (what’s left of it), which is where the 2012 Olympic cross country biking will take place, Old Leigh (a quaint fishing town) and end up in Southend, where it finishes. Southend is n the top 5 beach holiday places in England (apparently) and it has the world’s longest pleasure pier, which is also the second longest over all. On top of that, if you could lug your Warhammer, we’d get a game in
Glad to see you got some of our good weather and glad to read you enjoyed it
To Scots, Welsh and Irish, do not worry I already had the pleasure to visit your countries… Galway, Donegal, Edinburgh, Gower peninsula, Cardiff all of them are lovely places. :hat Do not want to start a flame war among britons and not-so-britons… ehehhehe
So Bassman how does one get a job of peddling there ass all over town and drink beer???
Ehehhee, don't you know the word vacation? Oh, sorry I forgot you live in USA not in socialist Europe where comrades got the right of vacation... ehehehe ;P
I'm kidding of course, being a indipendent professionist I can get vacation whenever I want... the downside is that I do not get a single cent during my vacation... :(
Dedwrekka: are you from Donegal? I've had a wonderful vacation a couple of years ago, I travelled with my ex-girlfriend from Shannon Airport to Galway, then to Donegal, a place called Glencolumbkille :) , drove torough the Glenveagh National Park to get ot Letterkenny where live some friends and finally spend our new years eve (Yes it was winter and the landscape was terrific! ) in a small pub in a micro village called Glen not far from Dunfanaghy. Lovely places, I'd come back as soon as possible. :)
AGPO: I tried Hobgoblin (very good) :idea, Fuller (good) and London Pride (nice but I preferred other Real Ales).
There are more but I do not remember names… sorry
I tried a local micro brewery in Woodstock… yummy, yummy!
My fav pubs during the tour:
Local brewery in Woodstock, the Eagle and child in Oxford (Tolkien and Lewis Carrol pub!), The old Cheeshire Cheese in London (great beer and food) and of course my favourite pub in London Thy olde Mitre (great real ales and “real” pub food).
