Today's update is short, because the internet where I am is unreliable at best. So for that, I apologize. Regular updates will resume starting next week. There's a nice little backlog of countries once more so I'll be able to continue on.
Our attempts to get out of the United Kingdom were fraught with obstacles. It's surprisingly expensive to leave that area, and finding a boat to take us over the channel took us all the way back south. So, Rob gave me a nice little surprise.
To those of you who don't instantly recognize this building, it's the Highcliffe Castle which is the set for Downton Abbey (one of my favorite shows). Visiting was amazing. The show explores a lot of the mansion and the surrounding grounds and I recognized a lot of it. The biggest letdown was that we weren't allowed to take photos inside of the manor. The surrounding grounds were beautiful though, so plenty of pictures of those!
As I said, this issue is very short. Uploading just these images took nearly all day. Before this trip, this graph just made me snicker. Now... Now I truly understand.
