Going back about a week and a half now my wife and I went out for an overnight trip from London to the Cotswolds. I tried my hand at driving on UK roads, it wasn't as scary as driving in France which I did almost a month back! Plus unlike France they drive on the same side of the road as NZ in UK which made things easier.
We drove through the Cotswolds checking out some of the little villages. One of them was Upper Slaughter which has a bit of interesting World War One history, no one from Upper Slaughter died in the war so they call it a sainted village. To be fair it was the smallest village we went to, probably only 100 or so residents live there (that's just a guess by the way.).
Checking out these little villages gave me ideas for both Flames of War and Empire of the Dead terrain, though I am still a way off creating my own table as Dans does the trick for now and I have a fair amount of painting to do.
When safety back in London with a dentless car returned I checked out a few game stores on our various excapades. One of my favorites was in Camden town, a pokey little store although it had a good collection of boardgames. I was looking out for a copy of Gloom a game I have been wanting to pick up however they were out of stock. One thing I did notice is we don't pay to much more for our games in Ne Zealand which is a nice surprise.
Just to finish of, a picture of me in front of out little Fiat in France. Driving in France is not for the faint hearted!
