    Exeter

    May 8, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Dashed into Exeter to pick up a data sim so we can navigate. We were just 5 minutes from the famous Exeter cathedral so we took a short walk through this historic area. Ate lunch at "Proper Burger" which it was. We were both too busy and terrified to take time to photograph the traffic. What's wrong with these folks? Still driving on the wrong side of the street.Read more

    Erkenntnisse aus England

    April 5, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    1) Die Menschen sind alle extrem freundlich - ich habe Engländer schon immer gemocht und jetzt erst recht!
    2) Ich nehme (fast) alles über Essen in England zurück, was ich je behauptet habe.
    3) Pub Essen kann man dauerhaft nur, wenn man tagsüber 2 Millionen Kalorien verbraucht. Mindestens.
    4) Englisches Pale Ale oder Stout sind hervorragend an einem Abend nach dem Wandern.
    5) Gehe nicht nach England, falls du eine Hundephobie hast.
    6) Wenn es nicht so peinlich wäre... gehe immer mit Gummistiefeln wandern.
    7) Sei darauf vorbereitet, dass ÜBERALL Ingwer enthalten sein kann.
    8) Wenn dir das Wetter missfällt, beschwer dich nicht. Bereite dich besser darauf vor oder warte 5 Minuten.
    9) Sobald du dich daran gewöhnt hast, beim Überqueren der Straße nach rechts zu sehen, lerne rechtzeitig dass man auf der anderen Seiten nach links sehen muss.
    10) DIE Entdeckung der Reise: Clotted Cream!

    Exeter

    August 25, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Oggi facciamo le cose con calma...
    La mattina andiamo in centro città e visitiamo la cattedrale in stile gotico con due torri di epoca normanna. All'interno c'è una lunga navata con archi gotici che dicono essere la più lunga al mondo....
    Caffè, giretto intorno alla cattedrale ed intorno alla chiesa di San David's circondata da un vecchio cimitero un po' fatiscente...

    Exeter Cathedral

    August 3, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Exeter Cathedral Dates back 900 years, it is one of England's most beautiful medieval cathedrals and one of the finest examples of decorated Gothic architecture in the UK. It is most famous for its two Norman towers, impressive west front carvings and the longest unbroken stretch of Gothic vaulting in the world. Of note are the Minstrels' Gallery, the 15 Century Astronomical Clock, a complete set of Misericords and the highly decorated tombs, bosses and corbels. The library contains the famous 'Exeter Book' of Anglo-Saxon verse, the Exon Domesday and many other historical documents.

    Also on exhibition were some amazing artifacts from WW2 along with some beautiful tapestry work.
