The only non-US places I've visited are Canada, Mexico and Bahamas. This will be my first trip to Europe. After much deliberating, I've decided to just stick with England this first time since time is limited.
I'll have about a week - if I can get a couple extra days in (that is, if the person watching my kids is okay with it), I'll have about 8 or 9 days.
My husband will be in Swindon the week before I leave. My thought was that I'd fly in toward the end of his trip and join him in Swindon for the first night. I want to see Stonehenge, Bath, Warwick, York & London. I'd also LOVE to see a play or 2 while there.
I'm assuming I'll be taking a bus from the airport to Swindon.
I think my main question is should we rent a car and drive (my husband has no problem driving on the left side) or can we take the rail? Or bus? Which is cheaper, faster, easier?
I'm starting to get very excited about this trip - my first grown-up trip in over 10 years! :)
