The man in the painting

This was our second visit to Bowood. Our first visit to the house and gardens was eight years ago. At that time we did not come any further than the adventure playground and the space dive, a spectacular slide with a 19 feet vertical drop, which our girls loved. When we asked them what they would like to do during our recent stay, they were very clear about it: visit Bowood once again. We did not mind at all! Bowood is a magical place, with so much to see. There is the impressive park…

The Swenglish Home

September... with that spring feeling... ?! Dear blog readers, I hope you have had a lovely summer and that September and the reality of back-to-school/work did not hit you too hard...

Stone Houses of Eastern Pennsylvania

A look into the rich history of Eastern Pennsylvania's stone houses and buildings.
