I really liked Bath. Those gorgeous buildings and the atmosphere. Definately have to go back some day. I´m also very proud to announce that my bears now are available in the bear shop in Bath: http://www.houseofbears-bath.co.uk/.
After Bath, our next stop was Cheltenham. For walking again. And so we did.
We walked all the way up the Devils Chemny (from the hardest way ofcourse) - and was rewarded with most beautiful view.
While we were in Cheltenham we also found time for a one day trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon to see Sheakspeares birthplace and the church where he is buried.
After Cheltenham our last stop was Birmingham.
We arrived the very same day as the Conservative Conference began, so there was SO many people in town. I have never seen so many people in black suits. Fortenately we had reserved all our hotels from home (thanks Ruth) - otherwise I´m not sure there had been a room for us.
I have never seen any city with so big shopping centres as Birmingham. I could have spend several days in there, which ofcourse I didn´t as my husbond was traveling with me :o)

As you hopefully can see, I have had a wonderful vacation in England.
We were so lucky with the weather. A bit cloudy and a lot of sun all days. People are so nice in UK - in fact I loved every bit of it. Definately going back.
This has to be for now.
I´ll better get back to some bear making.
Many hugs, Tina
