Walking in Windsor, England

We arrived safely home to Winston Salem NC last night after a lovely three weeks seeing all the family in the UK, being honest three weeks was a little long and its great to be back in our own home. In the UK we visited my parents in Scotland my Grandparents in Lincolnshire, hubby's sister in Norfolk and his Mum joined us from India and my brother, his girlfriend, hubby's brother, wife and nephew in London and his other brother. We have loads of family to get around the country and see hence the long trip. The last day we decided to spend it Windsor I had never been there it was close to Heathrow airport and well worth a visit.  

The castle is first class over 900 years of history just amazing, the town is full of pretty winding streets cafes, tea rooms and pubs. You can also stroll along the river Thames its much cleaner at this end of the river than in the city centre of London he he.

  1. so gutted we didn't get to meet up!... I've had a really crappy week to be honest with a horrid client who basically sucked my life away down in London all week plus i've been struck with a really stinky cold, which is making me twice as grumpy!!... glad you had a good time nonetheless... here's to next time x

  2. Welcome home! I know what you mean... I always thought Japan is always my home and I can stay there forever, but after having kids, it was a surprise to find out that I wanted to go back to the US and felt that is "my" home... Yes and it's usually 3 weeks that I felt that way. I enjoyed your video clip. It's so nice to see everything in action rather than pictures sometimes. I'm glad you had a great family time. :-)
