The Great Travel Adventure: England 5

Here we are again! This time we are off to London!! And what a city! I fell in love with just the little bit we managed to see. We arrived there on a Saturday afternoon to meet our lovely friend  Rickey (whom we had only ever met on Facebook) and checked into a hotel that Rickey booked us into and then headed off to a beautiful Turkish restaurant called Sarastro on Drury Lane (booked and paid for by Rickey) and THEN went to see a fabulous show called Dreamboats and Petticoats (booked and paid for by…you guessed it; the lovely Rickey!) We had an AMAZING night in the beautiful London and then enjoyed the next day meandering along the Thames. Enjoy the following two weeks of London! 🙂

Another round from England for you!  This time we head to  Brighton, via Arundel. We took a road trip from Amesbury (where we were based with Ray’s son and his family) to Arundel, taking approximately 2 hours, where we spent a bit of time exploring the area. We then headed to Brighton with Ray’s other son and his family to discover this cosmopolitan seaside resort.

The Great Travel Adventure: England 3

Hello again! This week I take you on a journey through Bath; a small one but a lovely journey nonetheless.  Bath is a city in the county of Somerset, South West England and I fell head over heals in love with her! The history, the beauty, the culture; what a magnificent place. As I chose my photos for the week, I developed an overwhelming desire to be back there again… We visited the city of Bath with Ray’s eldest son, daughter-in-law and grand daughter. It was a most beautiful and memorable day and I am so happy to share these photos with you 🙂
