Most of our trips in the States or abroad are one-stop destinations — a major city to explore, a festival celebrating an event, a peaceful state park. But if I could go back to one location, stay for a couple of weeks (a month even), and wander aimlessly around and through an area, it would be to The Cotswolds.
Although scenic views unfold at every turn, it’s mostly the houses I love. Stone cottages with or without thatched roofs. Creamy facades of stone or aged stucco. Cottages resting on manicured lawns, round bushes snugged up to their foundations. Comfortable homes fronted with aged-over-time wooden doors, windows edged by lace curtains, chimneys on either side, and vines meandering aimlessly upward and over. Yes, it’s wanderlust — my long-standing desire to linger in England’s Cotswolds once again.
Do you love The Cotswolds, too?
Happy wandering — Rusha Sams
