Escaping To England

Stop 1 - Stonehenge: After having our flight delayed several hours and then running into issues with our rental car, we ended up getting a much later start than originally expected. When we were finally on the road, we made our first stop at Stonehenge. We decided to forgo paying the entrance fee and just admired the structure from afar. After Stonehenge we drove to our hotel for the night. 

Despite making arrangements for an automatic transmission car, we ended up getting stuck with a manual transmission. Since Ryan doesn't have experience with a manual, I took on the responsibility of driving. Between the dark roads, rain, and driving a stick shift on the wrong side of the road, our first day of driving was quite the adventure.

Stop 2 - Bibury, Gloucestershire, UK: The next morning we started our day off in the small town of Bibury. Although it was tiny the town perfect with its dreamy rows of small cottages.

Stop 3 - Snowshill, Gloucestershire, UK: After Bibury, we headed towards the small town of Snowshill. It was there that we spent time admiring the breathtaking views and driving through the windy roads lined with homes. With Bibury coming in first, we ranked Snowshill as being our second favorite Cotswold town.

Stop 3 - Bourton-On-The-Water, Gloucestershire, UK: Our next stop in the town of Bourton-On-The-Water consisted of a visit to a toy store, antique shops, and a candy store. After our visit we drove through several more towns including Stow-On-The-Wold, Chipping Camden, Broadway, and Burford. When driving through Broadway, we also stopped at the historic Broadway Tower for a quick climb to the top of the tower. After seeing all the towns, we headed to our hotel for an early dinner and bedtime. Next stop - Arizona!!
