Road Trippin' Through the Cotswolds
We started off our travels today by making our way to our friends place near the Birmingham airport. We took the bus as we have National Express West Midlands travel cards for work. She met us at a pub car park and took us back to her place.Cotswolds. They are located throughout several counties.
The buildings in the Cotswolds are made of Cotswold stone which gives the towns and villages a unique look to them. We drove through many little towns and villages all with the uniquely coloured stone buildings.
Broadway! Broadway is a large village that has a bunch of shops and fancy restaurants.
|Loved the open fire pit.|
Afterwards we went back to Broadway to look around and find some lunch. The weather wasn't the greatest so luckily our friend had a spare umbrella for us to share.
We went into a deli and had some lunch. The deli had a bread board with houmous, olives and salad which was pretty good. Somehow we had a feeling that we'd be having a breadboard for lunch since small pubs in villages usually have them as their sole vegan option. It was pretty tasty nonetheless.
It was windy, wet and muddy but we braved the elements and made our way to Broadway Tower.
They had a bit of a museum inside the tower.
We saw some fellow tourists fall in the mud earlier, down near the telescope, before we entered the tower. You can see how muddy it is. We didn't get pictures of their fiasco because it would have been rude to take pictures of them falling down in the mud. We learned from their failure and took extra care not to fall down in the mud. We didn't want to ruin our clothes or get our friends car dirty.
|It's quite muddy down there. Be careful.|
There were lots of sheep around the tower. You can see them in the distance.

We hope you enjoyed our trip to the Cotswolds. It was very beautiful there and we highly suggest a visit.
