On our way to Scotland, we stopped at a motorway hotel in the countryside near the Lake District. After a full day of driving it was a relief to get to our destination for the night, but it was a bit of a chain hotel.
After looking over the high priced menu we decided to venture into the nearby village for dinner at the local pub. I agreed to forfit my glass of wine with my meal, and drive us back along the narrow roads.
It was well worth it. We found a great pub, and enjoyed dinner with the locals. And I managed to get us back safe and sound quite easily.
I was quite proud of myself and we immediately retreated to the hotel bar for a glass of wine. I’m not sure I will ever get totally used to driving in this country.
Meanwhile, many areas in the country have difficulty with internet connection in the small inns. If I miss posting for awhile, you’ll know we are enjoying the peace and quiet of a country inn.
