I agree with the period-focused tour idea. I think Chris' insight into the difficulties of traveling around Britain is something I had not really thought about earlier. I just finished listening to Bill Bryson's “Notes from a Small Island.” He certainly encountered several difficulties as a single traveler trying to get to certain locations in Britain. Trying to take a group and moving around from place to place would be tough. It would be nice to base ourselves out of one or two central locations (London or Birmingham) and then make day trips to various locations. I would still like to help in some way. I had actually been thinking of creating my own trip for my husband and I for next year, but we have this year's trip to plan for and enjoy, first.
