A Spring Adventure- A Road Trip through the United Kingdom

On Wednesday we are embarking on a Spring adventure to the United Kingdom. We are really excited about it. We have been to London and the Cotswolds once before.

As you can see by the map below…. we are starting in Cornwall, making our way up to Scotland to see Edinburgh, Fort Williams, Isle of Skye then coming back down and spending some time in the Lake District and finally hanging out in London for a bit.
