My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Bibury, England - A Charming Cotswold Village...

“Until you won't step into the creepy road, you will never be able to tread a smooth path for yourself...” 

(A charming Cotswold Village)

Date: 15 May 2017 (Monday)
Route: Gloucester – Bibury
Distance: 25 miles (40 min)

Bibury is a village in Gloucestershire, England. It is on both banks of the River Coln which rises in the Cotswold District and which is a Thames tributary. The village is centred 7 miles northeast of Cirencester. Arlington Row here is a nationally notable architectural conservation area depicted on the inside cover of all United Kingdom passports.

It is a major destination for tourists visiting the traditional rural villages, tea houses and many historic buildings of the Cotswold District. It is one of six places in the country featured in Mini-Europe, Brussels.

The village is known for its honey-coloured seventeenth century stone cottages with steeply pitched roofs, which once housed weavers who supplied cloth for fulling at nearby Arlington Mill. Until the 1980s, that building also housed the museum of Arlington Mill with a collection of period clothing, before it was shifted to Barnsley House. The Mill is now a private residence.

Today, this water meadow and marshy area, which is seasonally flooded and surrounded by water from three sides, is an important habitat for water-loving plants and birds including Mallards, Coots and Moorhens. It is also a National Trust Wildfowl Reserve.
