Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford, UK

Stratford-Upon-Avon is a medieval market town in West Midlands, England. As the birthplace of the most famous writer in English history, this small village has turned itself into a modern-day tourist trap. We were here for a quick stop. I would personally not go out of my way to get here, but when it is part of a larger tour, it’s worth the experience.

Oxford has more substance, and we had a nice walking tour of the place, but there are so many courtyards and locations that one is easily lost. It was important, and sometimes difficult, to stay with the tour group. But we loved recognition of many of the Morse landmarks.
