In May 2005, we visited friends and neighbours from Norway in Henley on the River Thames (there are several Henley's in England). He was a professor at Henley Management College there.
We also had day trips around the English countryside, and also visited an arch-typical small English village.
We then travelled and stayed in London for a few days. London is a fantastic city, teeming with life, as well as the many historic buildings.
