Isadora was used to people just knowing who she was, whether she had introduced herself or not, so explaining herself didn't really occur to her, even knowing that she hadn't given him a proper introduction. It was perhaps a touch of hubris on her part, but she could hardly be expected to remember everything. "I'm afraid the cause for my visit may have tarnished the experience somewhat. It was a rather tense affair, I'm afraid I had little time to enjoy the country itself." She had spent her time locked in intense discussions with the other lords, and it had been more stressful than relaxing, unfortunately. "Is it worth it to return under better circumstances?" She looked to him for advice, he was the expert, after all.[/size][/color]
She covered her lips when he spoke of the boasts of the people of Mercia, to hide her giggle, it seemed people from all over liked to believe only the best about their own nation. She couldn't really fault them, of course, not with how biased she could be in regards to her own kingdom. She smiled and nodded her agreement when he tapped his head. "The poor addled things." She laughed, dropping her hand to lift the hem of her skirt slightly as she stepped over an overgrown root that was protruding into their path.
Where to next? She thought of what she knew of Albion's cartography, thinking to places she had never ventured. "Have you ever ventured across the sea?" Gwent was a coastal nation, and while she had spent lengths of time gazing at the sea and beyond, she'd never had cause or opportunity to cross. She doubted if she ever would, so she had to live vicariously through the stories and experiences of others, like Sir Gwaine. She might feel bad, if he didn't seem to be truly pleased to have a rapt audience, but he seemed to enjoy speaking of his ventures as much as she liked to hear of them.
