    Hello - I had an idea you folks might want to think about: My wife is of English/Welsh decent and we've wanted to see the U.K. for years. If any of you would be interested in visiting America you might consider a simultaneous vacation. i.e. We could travel to each other's cities and stay in each others houses for a specified period of time (1 week perhaps) We live in the Seattle area. Lots of details to work out of course, but could save us both a great deal in lodging costs. Send me a PM if you're interested. 🙂

    I can offer a bit of advice.

    Winter on the fair isles of Great Britain and Ireland is an acquired taste. Please visit from June - September if it is your first time.

    I'm not sure what really interests you (nature, urban areas, etc), but I'll give a list of things you might want to do:

    Nature:

    England:

    Exmoor
    Lake District
    Dorset coast
    White cliffs of Dover - iconic
    Dartmoor
    Mendip Hills
    Glastonbury Tor - the rumoured site of King Arthur's burial, "Avalon".
    Cornwall in general - perhaps even a trip to Isles of Scilly?
    Stonehenge (this is man-made, but I couldn't classify it under "urban" ).

    Wales:

    Snowdonia is breathtaking. I mean really.

    Scotland:

    Anything in the highlands is spectacular and a must-see.
    If you can, get to the Hebrides as well.

    Northern Ireland:

    Giant's Causeway
    In general, it's just very green and pretty. You can see Scotland on a clear day from some parts.

    Urban:

    Edinburgh
    London
    Too many smaller towns that are rich in history to list here.
    If you are interested in American history, you might want to see the Sulgrave Manor (George Washington's ancestral home) although it's less of a manor and more like a cottage)
    If you like tennis, Wimbledon is a must...

    Funny, I have my eye on splitting my time between Washington state and the UK when I get my degree. Unfortunately, I cannot take up your offer until I qualify, but I wish you the best of luck.

    That situational request kind of reminds me of the film: "The Holiday" (2006).

    Though, it's more chick-flick than comedy; Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz are damned good actors.
    Oh, and they look good on film too! 😀

    To my friends in England and Whales

    While the people of Whales and Scotchland sat the war out as neutrals, it was England what stood up to the Russians and Germans in World War Two along with Czech pilots who learned to speak Home Counties very quickly.

    How many whales consider you as friend?
    I would LOVE to have a few whales as friends, make it safer when I went scuba diving in shark infested waters.
