Stuck at Home

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

No truer words were ever spoken.

I started this blog back in 2016. I refined the direction of the blog and relaunched last year.

I started with a trip to the UK, we had a great time. I was looking forward to our next travels.
Then came the Covid 19 virus.

So far, I’ve had to cancel two different trips. Not that I’m complaining, many people have it much worse and whining about having to stay home seems a bit selfish.

So, I was thinking about what I could write about, since I’ll not be on the road anytime soon.
What I’ve decided to do is look back at some places, meals and experiences that I have had in the not-to-distant past and share those – until I can get back to traveling.

We stumbled on the Fox and Goat while driving from the airport in London on our way to our hotel in Oxford.

The fish and chips at the Fox and Goat. Our first meal in England, we were off to a great start.

The Fox and Goat is a great local pub just outside of Oxford, England. We were looking for a place for our first meal in the UK and pulled over when we saw the building. I just looked like a country pub should look. 

Once you went inside, you knew that it was the real deal. We were the only non-local guests, but we felt instantly welcomed. 

The food was good, the beer was great, and we were off to a great start.
