{england: lacock and castle combe}

day one: salisbury

After sleeping for nearly twelve hours, we woke up bright-eyed and ready to explore the Cotswolds. The drive over the next two days was absolutely beautiful; we wound our way through the most incredibly scenic towns and countryside. Though the weather started off a little overcast, it luckily turned sunnier as the day went on.

The first part of Saturday was spent driving through Lacock, Castle Combe, and stopping at one of the many fields of yellow rapeseed flowers. (We didn't know at the time that we'd see countless more!)


We arrived here pretty early, so most of the shops were closed. We ended up just walking around for a bit and found the sweetest, tucked-away chocolate shop. As you'll see, we couldn't resist buying some British milk chocolate :)

Castle Combe

I've seen countless photos of this town and they don't do it justice. It was so beautiful and picturesque we couldn't believe our eyes. I just love the stonework and ivy. Can you imagine living in one of the cottages?!
