... the day we topped a hill at noontime and the land fell away in a panorama ... gazing on fields of blood red poppies, as far as the eye could see, blooming in the sun even to the reaches of an ancient church where the Camino winded, and the three of us—mother, father and daughter—hugged on the roadside with heartfelt joy, this after the hard ride. We sipped wine and broke bread in the cloister marked by the cross of St. James. It was good, this life.

Traveling with Tim Slover and Jane England was like having local experts to guide us. Whether it was standing on the lawn outside Parliament, in front of a painting at the National Gallery, in the Grecian room at the British Museum or on the tube en route to Othello, when Tim spoke to brief us even the Brits gathered around to listen.
