UK travel tips
An old schoolmate is planning a trip to England and from her FB posts, I'm getting an interesting picture. She wants to visit London and Liverpool. Her solution? To stay somewhere between the two. I suppose this could work, but is a bit like wanting to see NYC and Washington, DC, so choosing to stay in Philadelphia. That is, you'd end up spending a LOT of time traveling between all the places. Of course it's tempting, when going somewhere you may not get to again, to try to spread yourself thin to pack in as much as poss, but I would say this can make it all more exhausting than needs be.
With limited time, it's undoubtedly better to spend a couple of nights actually in London, one somewhere en route to Liverpool (the Cotswolds maybe? Stratford-on-Avon?) and then a couple of nights in Liverpool. Et voilà! Still see it all, but not so much time going back and forth. That's my March travel tip, anyway.
