Remember When . . . We Visited England?

So after flying on British Air last month and having a layover in London--for all of 40 minutes--my husband has finally jumped on my "We should totally go to England someday!" idea (which he has been denying for a decade). We're now toying with the idea of traveling there for our 15th anniversary next year. With that idea in mind, David asked me last night, "So were in England would we want to go?"


Oh gracious. I want to see every place I've written about...or plan to write about. But that kinda means going from Whitby in Yorkshire...
to The Cotswolds in Gloucestershire...
and then of course down to Brighton and Hove...
and maybe over to Land's End in Cornwall...
and I'd really love to go to Loch Morar in the Highlands...
but given that it's not even on this map...yeah. Might be over-reaching there. ;-)

To which my husband said, "So you want to see England. Just...all of England."

Yeah. Pretty much, LOL. And why wouldn't I? We've gotten rolling moors filled with bracken and heather...white chalk cliffs and a pebbly beach...beautiful dales filled with honey-colored stone houses with thatched roofs...rocky cliffs tumbling into the sea...a foggy loch with castles about.

Is it any wonder I love setting books in England? Right now I'm brainstorming another idea, for after I finish my Ladies of the Manor Series, which is where Cornwall might come in.

But surely I'm not the only one who has long dreamed of visiting different parts of England. So tell me--if you could go anywhere on the British Isles, where would it be?

In the meantime, take a look at what just arrived yesterday!!!
Makes it all seem a little more real. =)


  1. That is super cool! I think it would be cool to visit all of Europe one day! :) Also that is sooooo exciting that you got the ARC! :D :D :D

  2. Oh, definitely Cornwall! I want to go to the village of Port Isaac, where Doc Martin was filmed. I also want to visit Truro, not only to see the amazing churches/cathedrals but I have a blogger friend there. :)
