      AWhole Day In Bath

      July 17, 2022 in England ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

      So, when we were planning the trip we thought... let's get out of London for a night. See more of the country and save some money on a hotel. At the time it was a great idea. Now with the heatwave hitting Europe, all our travel plans are at risk due to cancellations... but... we went to Bath anyway. We will leave tomorrow's travel plans to God.

      The train out if London was packed. We had seats luckily but there were lots who had to stand for much of the journey. But hey, the train was running so all is good.

      Like everywhere else, Bath is beautiful but with much more of a Roman feel. We got tickets to see the actual Baths and we were surprised it was so big. 1st century architects could do amazing things.

      After the Baths we spent the rest of our time just wandering around the city. There are lots of beautiful areas and buildings. We missed the Michael Buble concert by a day but we saw them taking down the stage. Bath is a rich town and there were amazing cars everywhere.

      Then we made our way to our Youth Hostel. I was very impressed. Our room was spacious and even though we didn't have our own bathroom, they were right outside our door. It had self cooking spaces with everything you need to cook your own meal but they also had dining rooms and a Cafe. And the building was an old Italian style building surrounded by trees up the hill from the city center. A great relaxing place and it never felt busy.

      We walked down the hill to get some groceries for supper and then trekked back up to cook and eat the food. It was a hot day so we pretty much packed it on for the day. Kids were fine too settle in and do nothing. I was a lot more ansy. So when the sun had set, I convinced Jenny to go out for a walk and take some night time pictures. It was very pleasant.... and quiet. 😉.

      Tomorrow we will eat breakfast at the hostel and then start our adventure to get to Paris. Wish us luck.

      It's easy to see why Bath is World heritage listed. Beautiful well maintained building lined the cobblestone streets. Lots of tree's and flowers make this city very pretty. The roman baths were constructed over 300 year from AD60 following the Roman invasion. The thermal springs run under the building into spa's and baths of varying temperatures. Initially it was a place of worship and gradually became a place of daily bathing and socializing by all citizens.Read more

      I began my day at the Ancient Roman Baths which have been dated back to AD 69!!! They served as the Temple of Sulis Minerva, Goddess of the thermal spring and were revered for their healing waters.
      Afterwards, I went to one of Jane Austen's homes and corresponding museum.
      After more sight-seeing I drove back to Bristol, happily gave the car keys to Nicole's boyfriend Greg, and then we all headed to Cornwall!

      Wir wollten gerne in das Thermalbad, das sollte allerdings 98€ für 2 Personen kosten... und nur für ein paar Stunden. Haben dann etwas in einem Café getrunken und uns dir Stadt angeschaut und sind ohne Thermalbad weiter gefahren 🙈Read more

      Bath England

      Rebecca and I arrived in London this morning and took a bus to Bath where we’ll be until Wednesday. Tomorrow evening we’ll meet up with the Rick Steves’ tour. We are dragging today since we’ve gone over 30 hours without sleep! We took a short walk to the city center which is a large area of restaurants, shops, and historic landmarks, including the Roman Baths and the Bath Abbey. Note Jacob’s ladder on each side of the Bath Abbey. Angels are climbing up and down the ladder from heaven. We’ll explore more of the area tomorrow. Most of the architecture is Georgian and most of the city is built from a creamy limestone called Bath Stone. No fish and chips for me yet! We ate at Bosco Pizzeria for Naples inspired wood oven pizza and a gelato treat at Swoon.Read more

      May 1, 2022 in England ⋅ ☁️ 50 °F

      Typical English weather…misty and drizzles all day. Regardless, we walked to the Royal Crescent which is a semicircular row of 30 townhouses built in 1774 as a country home for aristocrats…impressive. We took a tour of the No. 1 Royal Crescent residence which is now a museum to get a glimpse into everyday life of that period. It was an immersive experience with film and sound about the fictitious Nott family…really enjoyed it. We also walked by The Circus, three segments of townhouses forming an open circle built during the same time. Circus is Latin for circle.

      We headed down to the city center again to wander, walked to the Pulteney Bridge over the Avon River and stopped the the Bath Bun Tearoom and tried the popular Bath bun (recipe dating to 1769). It’s a sweet bread with nib sugar, dried currants and a chunk of hard sugar tucked inside, served with clotted cream and preserves…yummy!

      We met Jamie, our tour guide, and the other 23 in our group, took a walking tour and dined the The Salamander where we sampled 3 different ales, had a nice dinner (tried lamb) and had a famous British dessert called Sticky Toffee Pudding.

      Wanneer Martijn zelf een willekeurig weggetje kiest, dan wordt het blijkbaar een doodlopend straatje waar je niet kan keren en die heel stijl is. In z'n 1 had de Terrano het er al moeilijk mee. Later toch nog wat andere mooie weggetjes gekozen en een stukje stad mogen zienRead more

      Great Malvern and Bath

      January 15, 2020 in England ⋅ ☀️ 45 °F

      Took a train adventure in a loop. Woking to Oxford to Great Malvern to Bath to Woking. I think it took 10 trains and 48 hours. Used the BritRail pass so I’m not even sure what it cost. Today was the Bath to Woking section. Bath has a natural hot spring. The Romans already knew how to build baths so they were a step ahead. After the Romans the English took over and expanded the area into a high-end resort. There is a unified architectural style which gives the town a beautiful look.Read more

      Vorne hui, hinten pfui

      May 13, 2019 in England ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

      Die zweite Nacht auf der Insel geht zu Ende. Wir haben ein wunderschönes Landhotel vor den Toren von Bath gefunden. Kronleuchter, dicke Teppiche, höfliche Angestellte und wunderschöne Aussicht. Ein Traum. Aber nicht unser Zimmer. Klein, niedrige Decken und Blick nach hinten zum Müllplatz. Die Müllabfuhr kam um 5 und ein Hotelangestellter mit Säge um 7. Unruhige Nacht, aber der Vortag entschuldigt. Südengland hat wunderschöne Dörfer!Read more
