Hadrian’s Wall…we will walk a section…Sycamore Gap, made famous as the scene in Kevin Costners movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, where Robin Hood saves a young thief. Chatsworth…a hike in the Cotswolds…quaint villages…how could you miss a place called Burton-on-the-Water. We will once again do the Pilgrimage to small villages of my ancestors. Stonehedge…Bath…four days on our own 65 ft canal boat…Portsmith and then on to France via ferry to Cherbourg. D-Day beaches and on to the Loire Valley, noted for castles and wine.
Then on to Champagne to visit the great Champagne Houses. Paris is next…the Louve…a river trip on the Seine at night…meeting an old friend for wine…boulangeries…and Notre Dame. A flight from Paris to London gives us a few hours to enjoy a great city before returning home.
