So the summer is here and I really do wish you a lot of beautiful evenings, spent in the garden, taking advantage over the stunning sunsets. I am saying I wish you, as you never know with this British weather. If you don’t live on the British Isles you are probably more likely to have the gorgeous weather guaranteed!

We knew it was going to be long and we knew it was going to be epic. And it did not fail to amaze us all the way. Of course, there are some practicalities you have to take care of such as research, bookings (if you are a control freak type of traveler) and making plans where to stop and go, but after that it is just a journey and you.
