Bath, Stonehenge, and a Secret Place - Part 3

It was hard to leave Bath and its stunning Georgian architecture behind, but our tour group had places to go and big rocks to see. Yep, that’s right, our final stop was Stonehenge!  

Lucky for us, the rain that had dampened our entry into Bath had let up completely by the time we found ourselves in Wiltshire.

The sun was shining and the day had warmed up beautifully, but let me just stop you right there – this is Stonehenge we’re talking about, a very exposed Neolithic structure. Prior to our tour, The English Bus had sent out an email with specifics about our trip, and it emphasized just how exposed the monument is and how unpredictable the weather can be, so we were to come prepared. Although the day was gorgeous, I don’t think anything can quite prepare you for the sheer amount of wind at Stonehenge!

Now that I’m back home and (mostly) recovered from the trip, I’ll start blogging in more detail about our experiences in England. If you read my last post that summarized our week in London, you’ll know that we were headed on a tour to Bath and Stonehenge, so that’s where this post will pick up!

When I was planning our trip, I researched for several weeks and mulled over every little detail before making any decision (I guess I’m a true Capricorn, after all). Ty really wanted to spend a day in the English countryside, and Brandon was pretty much up for anything we decided to do, so finding a good tour company became a priority. There are quite a few tour groups from London to Bath and Stonehenge, and most of these larger coach tours also throw in Windsor Castle. That seemed like a lot to squeeze into a single day. Windsor alone would take half a day to fully enjoy.
