Day 0 - USA to England & a Day in Windemere/Bowness
We leave the Eastern USA for a Coast-to-Coast walk across England from Philadelphia Airport in Pennsylvania. Airlines list many eastern cities for departure to the UK but in fact most are small planes that take you to a hub city such as Philadelphia, New York, or Boston. We chose to avoid the short flight from Baltimore and drove a little over two hours to Philly. The time was about the same, we just avoided hanging around one more airport. Avoiding the short domestic flight also denied the airline an opportunity to lose our luggage. On the return trip it was nice to hop in the car instead of waiting for another plane ride.
