I may or may not have skipped class to go on yet another adventure. Earlier this week I took a day off with two other girls from my program. We went on a bus tour to the historic Stonehenge and the city Bath. Both of which completely took my breathe away. I will also point out that this bus tour was a hundred times better than Scotland's. (That might be a bad thing to say, oops!)
Well here is my trip!
First off we headed to Stonehenge, which was yet one more thing on my bucket list. I am starting to think I should share my entire bucket list with y'all! Anyways, Stonehenge is roughly 2 hours from London, not bad at all.
Once we got there we had an hour to visit the site and utilize the audio tour. An hour was honestly plenty of time to walk the whole thing of rocks and to learn about the history of them. It was quite interesting to learn where they came from, their use, and different myths about the famous site. They also made for the perfect photo opp, but what doesn't when in Europe let's be real!
Next, we went to Bath which was only an hour from Stonehenge. Here we had 3 hours. Let me repeat that THREE HOURS to explore. So the first thing we did was grab lunch at a little pub called West Gate. I had a fish sandwich with chips. YUM. Also cider is a pretty big deal in Bath so we of course had to sample it!
We then walked around a bit. One thing I loved about this city was how small and quaint it is. Also every where you turned was street performers. I loved listening to the various artist do renditions of popular songs. It just made everything seem so lively.
From there we headed to the historical Baths. We did another audio tour to learn all about what they were used for and why they were so important to the people. The city earned its name from these watering holes. The various pools were used for different reasons from cleansing and relaxing to healing. The green bath seen in the photo above was once were the people gathered to relax and sun bathe. Interesting enough this water is the original water streaming from the ground but it is super dangerous to get in it because it is now poisonous. So there was no swimming for me!
Lastly, before hopping on the bus to head back to hour temporary home in London, we of course ate gelato. I can officially say I have had gelato in every city or country I have visited. I definitely have a problem! It was probably the best gelato I have ever had though..
Sadly, my last week in London has also come to a close.
Come back to read up on my last adventures and thoughts of the city!
