Trip Report England via the QM2!

Jump to last reply

Well, it's about time I wrote a report on our June trip to England, (If for no other reason than that I had so much help from regulars on this Forum in planning the QM2 part as well as the gardens in Oxford, etc.)

Not too many bad things happened this time, so this will not be a copy-cat of a MaiTaiTom report, but I'll try to amuse you or at least inform you!

We spent a week on the Transatlantic Crossing of the QM2 and even had a mini-GTG on board!!

Then we drove to Oxford where we spent 24 hours in a remembered hotel, and visited college gardens.

The major part of the week we spent in England was with old friends who live in Cheshire, but we did take one overnight up in Wharfedale at the Devonshire Fell in Burnsall. Heaven, even when it rained!!

Flew home from Manchester Airport, after a night at the Crowne Plaza.

That's the outline, the details will follow.
