I’m thrilled to be joining The Wayfarers for a photo-themed walking vacation through the Cotswolds, one of England’s prettiest regions. For six days, from May 22- 28, 2011, we’ll walk along historic footpaths, Roman roads and winding lanes through picture-perfect villages, meeting locals and enjoying first-class accommodations and gourmet meals.

I’ll be on the trail to answer your questions and offer practical advice on how to return home with memorable vacation photographs that will have your friends and family feeling like they went along for the fun!

You may remember that in September (2009) I went walking with The Wayfarers in the historic Dordogne region of France, and wrote about my experiences in the article Discovering Dordogne.

The previous May (2008), I packed my boots and cameras once again for France and another walking vacation that time to the beautiful region of Provence. You can read about the trip and view the photographs from it in Pure Pleasure in Provence. 

Last September (2010) I joined their New Mexico walk sharing my insights, knowledge, and passion for both photography and the Land of Enchantment. Read more about our adventures in my article In The Footsteps of Georgia O’Keefe

I’m a huge fan of the Wayfarers and their dedication to creating inspired itineraries for worldwide walking vacations. Their walking guides and trip managers bring the landscape to life with a passion and understanding of the history, culture and people of the regions they visit. The unique camaraderie that develops on and off trail, is the essence of Wayfaring and the reason that like me, 95% of their guests are repeat walkers.

JOIN ME MAY 22- 28, 2011..

The gentle walk is rated as easy to moderate through countryside, gardens, pretty villages and historic footpaths with rights-of-way over meadows and fields averaging 9-11 miles walking per day.
