in Gloucester
Hello all!!

Well sadly our trip is nearing the end. It's been long and short all in one. We still, however, have one more stop, in Hong Kong.

Whilst we've been here, we have explored Gloucester and found the cathedral in which part of Harry Potter was filmed. We also did some sightseeing in Oxford at Christ Church which the dining room was used for the movie. Talk about being a fan!!

Nick, his parents and I also hired a narrowboat down the Oxford Canal! You can't get more british than that!!! And just to top it off, we had true British weather with lots of rain! Oh I say!

Our last week has been spent on the coast in Devon at a place called Woolacombe and Lynton Lymouth. Nick and I spent many a summers day when we lived here in this area. So it was nice to revisit. The sun came out to shine for a few days which was lovely!

Whilst down there we attended a beautiful wedding of Matt & Amy's! And soon will be attending another in a matter of a week!

We've made sure we've had substantial amounts of

Gloucester Cathedral
Indian (English) Curries and tonight I will be feasting on a British Roast!!

Look forward to seeing everyone at the wedding, work and home! Especially my little cat - puss puss!!

See you soon! It better be sunny!
