    You have a beautiful narrating voice. It was very pleasant to listen to your story and descriptions.

    I’m such a rubbish Brit, I’ve hardly been to Northern England! (Although saying that, I am off to Leeds tomorrow!) A lot of it is definitely on my list, it’s stunning 🙂

    Lancaster is a great town, with many interesting places to see, I may be a little biased, as I went to university there!

    Sorry you didn’t get to try the beer, but luckily your luggage arrived. 🙂 I’ll have to listen to part 1 now.

    This sounds like a lovely trip. I think the Tollhouse Inn sounds like a great place to stay and enjoy the English Countryside.

    I have not listened to the podcast yet, but will do, I think this is a very innovative concept and could be the future of blogging. Appreciate your initiative on this.

    I really am addicted to podcasts. Glad I found a new one to feed the addiction!

    The English countryside is amazing and you’ve showcased so much of it for us. Thanks! Looks like an epic trip and that MacDonald Manchester Hotel, right on!! 😉

    That is not so common that I perfectly understand the accent! You really have a very clear pronunciation and that is SO important for a non-native English speaker. Nevertheless, 50 minutes is too long for me, as it’s a lot of concentration, both understanding the words and listening to the story. Maybe it’s possible to offer a transcript that would be also good for deaf and partially deaf people?

    I’d love to see your structured itinerary as an infographic. I feel like having a visual to go along with your stories would be wonderful, both for building a media trip or an actual vacation. I do love your stories.

    And you know we have gluten free beer up here in the Pacific Northwest!

    Such a beautiful part of the country. I can’t listen to the podcast right now, but I will be sure to let anyone I know who will travel to that area of England.
