Video: Feelin’ Groovy in the Duke of Marlborough’s Backyard

Hello from England! I’m here with my TV crew (Simon and Peter) to produce an exciting new public television show on Oxford and Cambridge. Today, we’re just outside of Oxford at my vote for the finest countryside palace a tourist can see in England: Blenheim Palace.

When filming in England, I’m generally stressed about the drizzly weather. But here, it’s crystal clear and the morning light is particularly fine. And that puts me in a very happy mood…just hanging out in the Duke of Marlborough’s backyard, feelin’ groovy.

This is Day 82 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences across Europe. Still to come: England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
