Grace at Waddesdon

A bunch of us from Leeds went to Buckinghamshire for a couple of days. Mostly to see this place. It's called Waddesdon Manor & was built for a branch of the Rothschild family, which explains why it looks like a French fairy tale castle. Very impressive interior, but as with most "great houses," I liked the outside better. I suppose that's a very good thing, because photos are not allowed of the rooms.

When we get asked why we moved to England, I often admit that I was jealous of my friends who had been abroad as children. The munchkins are getting experiences beyond my childhood fantasies.
