Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 6.37.23 AM Glastonbury back to London -Joe chauffeured us back to the Bath train station bright and early in the morning.  It was a treat to count the hot air balloons along the way.   Another long travel day on the ever efficient British Rail. We arrived back to our hotel around midday and what a treat it was to just stay in our room the rest of the day and do nothing.  We were so exhausted, we watched 3 movies in a row! Happy travels, Linda and Madeline

Day 11-Glastonbury back to Oxford

screen-shot-2014-04-27-at-11-36-53-am Glastonbury back to Oxford It was really difficult to say our farewells so we decided to stay an extra day even though it meant us having to take another trip back to Oxford to have lunch with more friends and visit the Oxford Covered Market where it all began (this time with the kids!).  It was so fun to hear the kids laughing and joking in the back seat, especially when we played 20 questions. They made me laugh so hard. The English country side was so very beautiful and we loved seeing all of the cows and sheep grazing in the grass. The trip today took a total of 5-hours and once again we are all tired.  Tonight as I packed up it was interesting, I was thinking; I have two feelings… I felt both rested and exhausted at the same time. Life is good! Happy travels, Linda and Madeline

Day 10 -Glastonbury to Oxford

  Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 11.26.28 AMphoto-4 Glastonbury to Oxford Today Madeline stayed behind with Joe and the chaps and Michelle and I took the 2-hour journey to Oxford to pick up Chocology supplies that have been in storage.  I was grateful we decided to go on our own when we got there and found 17 boxes!  Oh my goodness, I couldn’t wait for us to get home and go through them.  I felt like a kid at Christmas! It was also great for Michelle and I to have 4-hours alone in the car—I believe we may have solved many of the world's problems, well at least our own problems. And it’s not every day that I have an opportunity to drive by Stonehenge! Long day and we are ALL tired. Happy Travels, Linda and Madeline

Day 9 - London to Bath to Glastonbury

Posted on April 25, 2014 by 63390433 | 0 Comments

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 11.20.28 AM London to Bath to Glastonbury -After breakfast we took the tube to the train to meet our dear friend Michelle and her family.  We met Michelle and her family when we moved to Port Jefferson, New York 8 years ago and Madeline went to school with her boys.  Sadly (for me) in October they moved home to England to be nearer Michelle’s mum. But now it appears to be a positive as Michelle will be packaging and shipping our Chocology orders here in UK!  I love that we are all connected as coworkers AND as people.  Life is good! When I mentioned to Michelle how much we love Indian food, her husband Joe whipped together a lovely Indian meal and we all enjoyed catching up and making Chocology plans.  It felt so good to be in a home and with good friends. Me, Jonathan and Luke Madeline and the chaps stayed up playing games until midnight!  It was so cute in the morning when they all said staying up late was great fun but “it wasn’t worth it in the morning.” Happy travels, Linda and Madeline
