Got so many to share but always give up when I start to think about editing, resizing, watermarking the photos and composing the blog.
Haiys, don't take for granted that a 'post' is just a 'post' readers!
Must be grateful that all the bloggers, writers, reporters out there who are so hardworking just to keep us update.
Today I'll be writing about Stonehenge, one of the places I visited during my last trip to London.
We tavelled by train from Paddington Station (thanks to Jason who help us to get the ticket!) to Bath.
I was overwhelmed to see Paddington Bear, one of my childhood favorites with raincoat in this station! =D
The journey from London to Bath took around 2 hours.
Only wide fields, greens and farms can be seen along the journey.
Everything look so Harry Potter-ish (hint*) and I thought I can met some elves or hobbit there! XD
After we reach the town of Bath, we took the local tour van to Stonehenge.
That was quite a long journey too. Around 1 hour+.
You see, when I travel, I really don't like to spend my time in any types of vehicle.
A one way journey to Stonehenge took about 3 hours meaning 6 hours back and forth.
After spending HOURS travelling, at last we reached the legendary Stonehenge.
Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. It is in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds. The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1986
The site is beautiful and wide but if you have no interest in standing stones, I think that it's better to skip this from your UK-must-visit because we somehow felt "cheated" cause we came this far, paid for the entrance fee and all we saw was just some stones piling and lining up
And you cannot believe how strong the wind was!!!
I can't even take a decent photo infront of this monument!!!
Busy listening to the audio description.
The wind was too strong that I can't even hear it clearly!
Miss my long hair after seeing this picture!
-Decent pose fail-
After touring the Stonehenge, the local tour van took us to another small village near Stonehenge, the Lacock.
This village is famous for picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a TV and film location.
|Do you find this photo familiar?|
|Lacock Abbey, Lacock, Wiltshire|
The house was home of the Talbot family, including the famous pioneer of photography Henry Fox Talbot. In fact, the oldest photographic negative in existence is a picture of the latticed window in Lacock Abbey, taken in 1835. You can see the very window if you tour the house, which houses the Fox Talbot Museum, dedicated to the work of the inventor.Other famous movies like Pride and Prejudice, The Other Boleyn Girl, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood and many more were filmed in this beautiful village.
Notice that this is the only village in UK that has no antenna or heavy wiring post so that they can preserve the classical scenic view.

Ironically, the owner of this house is Lily and she has a dog named Harry.
(FYI,Harry Potter's mom name is Lily)
This cottage inn's description caught out attention!
Look carefully and tell me what you saw!
Have you saw what I saw?
Yes! It says "RESIDENT GHOST"!
At first I thought it was just a pure joke to attract the visitors but our tour guide told us that it is true and some people paid to experience that!
They are harmless though, he said.
I can never imagine myself staying there. How about you? XD
At the late evening, we hit back to the town of Bath wanting to visit the Roman Baths.
But unfortunately we were 5 mins late for their last visiting hour. =( big disappointment
I would rather spend more time in Bath rather than Stonehenge!!
So we had dinner at a random restaurant instead.
I don't know why but UK don't seems to have restaurant that serve decent local food.
So we had these :
(I forgotten what are the names but #16 is mutton sausage and #17 is chicken sandwich)
That's all for the Stonehenge post!
Hope you enjoy it!
Last but not the least, my indecent photo number 2! XD
