Sorry, this is a duplicate posting from the General Travel section, but thought I'd post the same query where all the British interest lies. I've traveled to Europe once, and Great Britain twice. I'm hooked, but haven't traveled there since 1999. I'm now married, and my husband has no interest in traveling abroad. I know I could coerce him somehow, but that would probably ruin the trip as it wouldn't be "his" idea (and that's not my style). I'd like him to fall in love with Britain (Scotland & England mostly) just as I have, thus paving the way for more trips in the future. Your first-hand recommendations/experiences are what I'm looking for. His interests are nautical, so anywhere along that line of interest would be appreciated, especially day-sailing tours, quaint fishing villages, B&B's, etc. He is also somewhat interested in horticulture, so any botanitcal/public gardens that are your favorites would also be nice to hear about. I would love to discover places where you can mingle with the locals, especially your favorite local pubs & restaurants. If you know of anywhere that a motorcycle could be rented for a day or two, that would be helpful to me in my quest. I would be looking at probably a 10-day trip when the time comes. PS: Please don't suggest that I travel by myself if he refuses. I've traveled there alone before, and while I didn't have any problem with that, and indeed enjoyed the freedom, I don't think I would enjoy it as much now if I couldn't share my love of Great Britain with him first-hand. Thanks a million for your help and guidance.
Need ideas to tempt my husband to travel to Great Britian
