Love the TR so far! Like PPs have said, it feels like we're getting the tour with you! I'm glad you included photos and reported on your pre-ABD days.

Thanks so much, starrzone! As you can tell, I'm definitely a fan of ABD. I'm glad you've enjoyed my TR's. I should have more of this one up SOON!

Thanks, emilymad. It was actually a bit of a shock going to London after Winchester. I got over it fairly quickly, but it was a shock! I'm glad you're enjoying my pictures!

Thanks, rlduvall! It makes me happy that people like my photos & running commentary. More report up soon!

Thank you for the pictures of the cathedral. How beautiful. It's awe-inspiring to me that generations gave their whole lives to building these, knowing they'd never see the finished product themselves, but wanting to leave something wonderful to last into the future. Amazing!

So glad you did the riverwalk. These little paths have become my favorite thing about England - and your pictures really capture the feel and the light.

I hope the wonderful weather lasted. Can't wait to read more!
I'd love to travel with you, too, kristilew. It will happen some day! I do love Winchester Cathedral quite thoroughly. And the riverwalk was something that had stuck in my head from 30 years ago. I love those sorts of walks, too, obviously. "Off the beaten path".

I'm loving your trip report - really gives us a feel for the tour...but not too much! We're thinking hard about trying ABD next summer, either Italy r Knights & Lights. One of our boys has a physical disability so your TR is giving me a very good idea what to expect, so we can think about which tour would be more manageable. Right now I'm leaning towards K&L partly because my DH and I have been to London and Paris a number of times and would enjoy sharing it with the boys - plus I know what to expect at all the stops and I do speak French we we're all good there! That being said, I've never been to Italy, so I really want to go there. Most important thing is to having a successful, happy, minimum stress trip, and then we'll just sign up for the other for another trip!

Thanks again!

Wow! Actually, I haven't even started on the actual ABD yet! Part 3 should be up tonight or tomorrow. That part starts the actual tour.

There are issues for both trips as far as your son's disability is concerned, but know that the Adventure Guides are really on top of working out alternatives in those kinds of situations. They aren't allowed to physically help you with your son, but they work out rides, alternate activities, etc. Both the Italy and Knights & Lights trips have been around for several years, and I'm sure they must have had several people with disabilities on both trips (we had someone with bad knees, and anther person who'd had a hip replacement). I'd call ABD and ask them what they've worked out in the past, and ask for their recommendation. I just think ABD trips are fabulous, and really reduce the stress of traveling!

This is wonderful! Beautiful pictures!! I have listened to the podcast discussion of this trip, and really wish I could do it! We have tentative plans for a London/Paris trip (not w/ABD sadly), and I am looking forward to hearing and reading all about it!
