Hey everyone, so before Christmas a few friends and I took our first English road trip – and my first in well over a year, I was definitely having withdrawals. My friend has acquired his aunties car as she can’t drive anymore so hopefully more roadtrips ahead!
We left at the ungodly hour of 6am on a Sunday and cruised to Stonehenge first. There was no-one around and obviously it wasn’t open yet, but lets be fair – it’s a bunch of stones in a paddock so we just pulled over, braved the wind and took some photos. It was a bit far away so the photos we got weren’t the best but I’d rather get a far away pic of the whole thing than a close up of a grey….rock. We then jumped back in the car, sounds booming and headed to Castle Combe, a quaint little village which looks like a step back in time. We wandered through the still sleeping village, grabbed some photos and marveled at its beauty. Quite a few movies have been shot there due to it’s old school look.
Next stop was Bath where we found a park, had a wander and took a tour around the Roman Baths. It’s quite different from back in the day, quite hard to picture from what your looking at! Still worth a look though, we wandered around Bath some more and stopped into a pub and had a pint and a feed, it started raining so we jumped back in the car and headed to our next destination – Bristol. We parked again and then wandered around hunting for Banksy art, we found a couple, grabbed some photos, wandered around some markets we stumbled across and headed back to the car for the drive back home to London. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday and tick off some more places on the ol travel list!
Check out some pics of our adventure below!
