Bath and Stonehenge

Awesome jazz band near the baths, in Bath. 
by Mary Evans


The last few weeks have been great! I have been doing a bit of traveling and getting ready for spring break which is exciting! I can’t believe how fast the time is going here. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was getting off of a plane in London when in fact I have already been here almost 2 months!


We (GSE) took a trip to Bath and Stonehenge recently and it was amazing! We went to Stonehenge first and spent about an hour there. Then we went to Bath for 3 to 4 hours.

Stonehenge!
Stonehenge was beautiful and it is so interesting to learn the history behind the mystery (no rhyme intended). There are so many different aspects about the site that I never knew and it was really fascinating to learn what went into the building of Stonehenge. I had a little extra time to spare after doing the tour so Lisa and I decided to run into the sheep field next to the site so that she could get some pictures. She loves sheep so I knew this was extremely important to her. We ended up almost missing the bus because of those sheep but I would say that if you have a chance to run in a field of sheep, do it. It is definitely an interesting experience.


The Roman Baths!

Anyway, back to the real sightseeing. We moved on to Bath after that and it was equally wonderful. The city is beautiful and the history behind it is extremely interesting. We went into the Roman Baths and it was gorgeous. We got to see what life was life was like for the Romans and I learned so many new things about the culture that I had never known before. It was a great experience.


Sally Lunn's!
After that Lisa and I went to Sally Lunn’s for lunch. Sally Lunn’s is the oldest building in the city and it has a small museum downstairs and a restaurant upstairs. We ate some of Sally’s famous Bath Bun and a pot of tea which was great! Although, I think I may have eaten a little too much clotted cream with my bun because I felt a little nauseated on the ride back home. Note to self: limit my clotted cream intake. Aside from that though, the trip was fantastic!


The whole day was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to see what is next on the agenda for the GSE group!


Until next time,
Mary Evans
