A Weekend in the Cotswolds

I was in the UK for a meeting last week in Oxford, and in my world that translates into “what’s nearby for a weekend trip?” The Cotswolds were the obvious choice- the area filled with lovely rolling hills and tiny villages just west of Oxford- so my fellow astronomer-in-crime Jess and I rented a car to go out and explore. We were actually quite lucky with the weather- it didn’t rain buckets until the last day, and there were even times of blue sky- so lots of rambling (hiking to the American lot), exploring picturesque villages, and making various bets on the Euro Cup matches playing in the tiny village pub ensued. All in all a great place to spend a weekend, and certainly a picturesque one!
