Warwick, England

Indy and I are in England!!!! Yay! We flew in yesterday and after much traveling, arrived in the absolutely adorable town of Warwick, which is pronounced WORR-ick. We are here to visit Warwick Castle, first begun by William the Conqueror in 1068. The flight from Germany was packed, but for 5 Euro, each way, how much can we complain? Well, Indy sure can, but I was just happy to fly so cheaply. Once we landed, we took a train to London, used the excellent Underground system to get to another train station and took another train out to Warwick. It was a lovely trip, with loads of lovely English countryside to look at. Once we arrived in Warwick, the incredibly sweet proprietress of Park Cottage, our excellent B&B, picked us up at the train station so we didn't have to walk through the drizzle.   The photos below are of the hotel, which was built in the 1400's and contains the original beams and floor boards.  Our room is on the second floor and has the 3 small windows at the front you can see in the photo below.  Isn't it darling?

This is our room!  It's called the Georgiana.  All the rooms are named after Countesses of Warwick. There's a single bed for Indy on the other side of the room.  The floor (remember original) slants seriously and I had to load up on the pillows last night because my head was lower than my feet!

These are photos from their website, but I'll have more when we get back home.  I've taken tons of photos, but I forgot the cable to connect the camera to my computer.  Darn it.  Okay, Indy is chomping at the bits to go to the Castle, so I'm off.  I'll see you all, with LOADS of photos when we get back.
