We arrived home safe and sound, healthy and with tans, if you can believe it! There was a welcoming committee waiting for us in the front yard, including one excited dog. It was wonderful to be back, although we certainly will talk about our adventures for days to come.
Train travel was interesting. I'm sorry I couldn't blog in Paris, Wales or England. Alas, it became too difficult to use the trains, and we were exhausted by the time we reached our hotels or B & B's.
I'll have to update the blog later, bit by bit, as it's 6 am London time and we haven't slept yet. We did love Paris. The weather was sunny. We got to Cardiff Wales as the monsoon rains hit, and that wasn't too pleasant as some of the trains weren't going through. However we happened to hit the right days when they were working, so we visited Bath twice, which was just an hour away from Cardiff.
We LOVED Bath! We also got to see the place where my paternal Grandma grew up in Penygraig, but I was quite disappointed in the town, as it's like a ghost town, and didn't have much in it. But the houses have been fixed up very nicely, with lovely gardens. We didn't stay there long, as another monsoon was preparing to hit.
I really must get to bed and finish this another day...I'm sorry I couldn't blog while I was in Paris, or any other time. I preferred the Netherlands to anything else we visited. I must be half Dutch...
