For Sisyphus, who asked for pictures.
I saw a whole bunch of cathedrals:
and some big rocks:
and some cows:
I went hiking:
and saw some plays:
And drank a few pints of ale, of course. I don't have any pictures of the ale, or of the all-night kebab shop, although they are both Things That Deep South Town Tragically Lacks.
It has been three years since I have done any real traveling (defined as hauling around a big backpack from hostel to hostel, leaving the laptop at home, and doing absolutely nothing work-related whatsoever), and I had forgotten how short two weeks was. There will be more time next summer, I hope.
