Wiles Family’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 23 May 2007

Location: Hucknall, England

MapHello, we have arrived in England and are staying with family which is really great. We are taking it a bit slower now.
On Sunday we had the traditional Pub Lunch, and we also visited Nottingham Castle and the caves (yes more caves) beneath it. The guide was really entertaining and really seemed to know her English history, making it come alive for all of us.

Georgia had a riding lesson on Monday at nearby stables, so she wants to stay here for the remainder of our holiday and go riding.

Yesterday, Tuesday, we went to the Cadburys factory at Bourneville. We really really enjoyed this- you get chocolate samples - yum! The self paced tour had lots of fun interactive activities too.

Anne has lent us her car, it has SAT NAV which means I can read books instead of maps as we travel between places.
Tomorrow we are going to York then heading up via Newcastle to Edinburgh in Scotland.

See you soon.
P.S. We are still talking to one another
