cotswolds - june 2018

If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.
— Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

My Dad and I spent a long weekend this summer visiting the Cotswolds. It was like something out of a Jane Austen novel. All that was missing with Mr. Darcy ;). We started our road trip in Salisbury then travelled north to Stratford, stopping in little towns and National Trust properties along the way.

What I appreciated most about the trip was having time with my Dad. We spent hours taking photos and hunting down our next location; cameras at the ready. I helped my Dad get comfortable with driving on the left side of the road while introducing him to a few new NPR political podcasts. It was all extra special considering we now live thousands of miles apart.

Classical/ instrumental music is not only for people over the age of 65. I love piano music whether it traditional, modern or a fusion of both. This song was the perfect soundtrack to my Jane Austen weekend in the Cotswolds. I could listen to this track on repeat all afternoon.
