My husband and I are trying to scramble together a two week trip to England and France in July. We have never been to either place.
We definitely want to see the sights London, The Cotswolds, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Canturbury, Dover (if it all makes sense). We like history, museums, hiking and seeing unique things. In France, we want to go Paris and Versailles. We like French film and culture (besides being vegan).
I made this post vague on purpose, because I realize you're the experts. We are having trouble nailing an Itinerary.
If France seems like too much for what we want to see in England, we would also do England/Edinburgh instead.
