We visited Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, and Stow-on-the-Wold. Can you imagine having to write out your return address if you lived in one of these places? And many of the houses have names, not addresses. It would discourage me from writing letters.
While a lot of these towns looked quite alike, it was nice to be out of the city for the day, seeing something other than busy London. It rained for half the day but we survived. Our tour guide was hilarious, and knew lots of strange trivia. He said cats and dogs used to hide in thatched roofs when it was cold, and then when the roof got wet they would slip off – it’s raining cats and dogs! Oh, how clever.
The funniest part was at lunch, when Samantha and I tried to order Sprite and Coke. They had none! Ah, small towns..
