Thank you to all who have posted!

Hopefully all sorts of LJ-ing alums will come here.

I went into the interests and fixed the spelling of emerson and bsffa.


My wife and I are planning a trip to Italy, France, England, and Wales for this summer. Any suggestions as to particular off-the-beaten-track spots that shouldn't be missed?

I hope everyone is doing well!

depending on how backwoods you want to be Snowdonia Nat'l Park is full of cute little villages (where Welsh is the primary language, but everyone is taught English in school, so you will have no problems) St. Davids and Cardiff are the classic choices and are fun, with the most of nightlife for wales. Wherever you go in Wales make sure to have a rain jacket, especially if you are hiking. Oh if you are driving, start in the top or mid wales and drive down (then you don't have pay to cross the severn bridge). I am bias cause of my boyfriend but the west country is extremely lovely and the people are great. The train all the way to Penanze from London i think is only 4 hours. Check trainline.co.uk for train schedules and reduced fares! I could go on and on, Lake District, Peak District and Yorkshire are super great but i am not sure of what you want to see. Castles are more central or way up north. and Nature is only a short walk away from most places....oh and be sure to tell me when you might be in London town and i can give you a tour of wacky Camden. think punks and goths.

Can't say much for how off the beaten track these are, but my high school french class spent two weeks tooling around France. I particularly enjoyed Bretagne and Basse- and Haute-Normandie, as well as Pays de la Loire and Centre, altough I would love to visit the south, especially Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (esp. Aix-en-Provence!).
