Just back from 3+ weeks in southwest England, mostly walking, drinking, and eating. Some nice photos, I think.
They're in four bite-size chunks, in reverse chronological order - I started in Cornwall, then moved to the Cotswolds, then Dorset, and ended the trip in Salisbury. Small group hiking in Cornwall, solo the rest of the time, though in the Cotswolds and Dorset I used a travel company that arranges the lodging and provides printed trail guides and maps for each day.
A self admission of geographic naivety, but I had no idea where the Cotswolds are/is. Relatively easy to track down on Google maps and if it's a private type album, you might be able to recall where it was several years from now, so who cares. But for someone just looking at the album, I still like the idea of some pop up, pop down map as a general orientation. Just a thought.
Pretty country side and as a fan of Midsomer Murders, quite enjoyed the photos, just wasn't sure where the heck you were. Anyone else feel the same about travel images?
Almost every caption in that album has a place name with it. Plug any one of them into Google maps.... In fact, there are even Google street views in the tiniest of little villages. I was surprised at how extensive the coverage is.
In general, there's a lot of "countryside" between little villages, so precise locations are largely irrelevant. In fact, even using Google maps to navigate, one is often told to go "1.2 miles, turn left," with no road name or number - because the road has no name or number!
