My Summer as a Madam

I never thought I would find myself living as a professional vagabond.

I went to college and had a pretty specific career plan, but in 2012 when I graduated, I was left with a degree and no prospects. After a few years of serving lattes and bussing tables, I was invited to spend a summer working in Alaska. Me, who thought she would never leave the Midwest. Me, who only had a little bit of travel experience and who hated being anywhere out of her comfort zone.

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!
