England Photos — Day 1 #BriFri — 17 Comments

  1. I was inspired by your idea of getting a driver from the airport and hired one for our trip to France. For some reason transportation from the airport always is the most stressful part of a trip for me.

  2. I think I have the same photo as your first one!!

    We always book a driver from the airport as it is just easier and we are usually tired when we arrive.

    We have rented cars in England, Ireland and Scotland on various trips, however, do enjoy taking the train in Europe.

  3. Driving over in the UK is disconcerting at first. Actually it still is even after many many visits. I leave the driving to the natives.

    Excellent choice of towns to stay – I love Bath!

  4. Your post brings back memories and I want to visit Bath again. What an experience you’ve had just shortly arriving. Lovely photo of the garden, looks like mirrors reflecting with infinite images. Thanks for sharing this wonderful trip of yours.

  5. What a start to your trip! I’m glad the accident was relatively minor. It’s amazing that there are stone circles all over England, but all the hype just surrounds one. Can’t wait to see more of your pictures, and hear about your adventures- although I hope it’s a little less adventurous than the first day.

  6. I loved Avebury and thought it was far more interesting than the commercialism of Stonehenge. The little museum was interesting … full of theory. I also loved that high ‘beacon mound’ near Avebury …

  7. Your photos are lovely. I especially like the one taken at your hotel in Bath. I’d love to stay there.
    So sorry you were in a traffic accident. After a harrowing experience trying to drive in Jamaica (they also drive on the left), my husband and I opted for a rail pass while visiting England. That’s the best decision we ever made. We were able to relax and not stress out about driving, and we were able to easily visit every place we wanted to go via bus, tube, and train.
    My Saturday Snapshots today are from the Cinque Terre.

  8. Oh poor you. That looks like it was quite a big bump. Although Stonehenge is impressive, I think Avebury is well worth a detour, as it is much more exciting being able to go right up to the stones.

  9. The first time I went to Stonehenge was back before there was a visitor’s centre or anything. It was just upright rocks in a field. That was in 1986. I think there may have been signs telling you about the rocks. Before that, when my aunt went in the 1950s there were cows wandering through the site. Funny how things change.
