2010 Britain Trip
I have visited Britain a number of times, starting in 1970; however, this is my first trip since taking up birding after my retirement in November 1998. Below you can see a map that shows my route, and below that is my actual itinerary. As you can see, the trip includes England, Scotland , and Wales. There also will be links to photos from the trip (Photos01, Photos02, etc) and my commentary about the trip (Ramblings01, Ramblings02, etc). I plan to add these links while on the trip.
The trip was originally planned to start on April 19, 2010, but a volcano in Iceland erupted the week before that, and all plane travel into and out of the UK was shut down for six days. As a result, my trip was rescheduled, and departure was moved back to April 27. The return flight was also rescheduled, so the duration of the trip stayed the same. The map below shows the original route, and the revised route is the same except the first and last eight days. Instead of visiting London at the beginning of the trip, London was moved to the end. The planned visit to Swanage, near Poole Harbour in Dorset had to be canceled, and instead, a stop of three days in Maidenhead, just outside of London, was added at the end also. Other than those two changes, everything else stayed the same.
Below the map of the original itinerary, there is a revised itinerary, showing each destination, with dates. Below that is an embedded Google interactive map of the trip. You can click on the Google map and pan and zoom, to see details or certain areas. Below the embedded Google map is a link to the Google website, where you will see a larger version of the same map.
