Go CotswoldsI very rarely need an excuse for a day in the Cotswolds so yesterday’s catalyst (let’s say) was an invitation to the #CotswoldsTweetMeet.

Organised by Cotswold Concierge the #CotswoldsTweetMeet is a networking event for businesses from right across the Cotswolds who are regular Twitter users. It allows the opportunity for everyone to meet face to face and tell each other about who they are and what they do in an informal environment.

It was held at the magnificent Wyck Hill House Hotel just outside Stow-on-the-Wold who served us complimentary champagne and soft drinks along with a fine array of canapés. Not a bad way to spend a Tuesday morning/lunchtime truth be told!

20140401_180324Networking is something brand new to me. As a newbie it’s quite a curious experience; the whole interrupting strangers mid conversation to introduce yourself before going your separate ways and doing it all over again certainly took some getting used to!

But I met some great people in the two hours I was there and was very appreciative to Mette of Cotswold Concierge for the invitation.

Following the event I had a couple of things planned. First up was a visit to the Model Village in Bourton on the Water and then I (finally) headed to the Cotswolds Cricket Museum in Stow. I say finally as it’s something that I’ve been planning to do for ages.

To finish off the afternoon I went on a circular walk from Furze Lane near Chipping Campden where I took the picture of the lonely tree.

Another great afternoon in the Cotswolds. Roll on the summer.
