Evesham to Chinnor
Evesham to ChinnorApril
When it came to leaving Evesham we were ready and rearing to go. We said goodbye to Caroline, our AirbnB host. She was lovely!! Caroline gave us full access to the house, allowing us to cook a meal. We retreated upstairs pretty early to rest the night before, but we loved the conversation over breakfast. Caroline used to teach English as a foreign language, which I know that is difficult from my University Studies. She had children and one of her daughters liked to do triathlon. Caroline slapped us on the wrists for putting jam on our toast and told us (jokingly) that marmalade is strictly for breakfast and jam for afternoon tea! I guess we should’ve known that being British, but I’m afraid that traditional english custom is one that we weren’t aware of. It seemed that Caroline appreciated our journey and living life to the absolute full.
The ride itself was hilly with 3000ft of elevation. It took 9 hours again -eek! Thankfully the last 20 miles or so were totally flat – and we know that road well now. Stew’s granny had a hot steak pie ready for us – and up to her usual standard, the pie was amazing!! I had cheekily requested we got to have Margaret’s steak pie one final time before we left for 2 years!
The weather to Chinnor was just perfect. It was a Monday – and honestly I was not missing the office and usual influx of Monday morning emails. This was bliss. The pictures barely do the day justice!
