English Countryside on My Mind

This weekend found me in the English countryside at Stonehenge and Salisbury. The first part of Saturday morning was spent driving the two hours to Stonehenge to stare at well… some stones. If you ever find yourself at Stonehenge (which I do recommend going to see), make sure you bring a fun group of people. I luckily went with a great group of friends from my house and we laughed our way through Stonehenge. It really was cool to see but the first thing they say to you when you get there is that “no one really knows where the stones came from.” That sorta threw us all off, but nonetheless it was interesting and we all had some good old fun in the English countryside (Stonehenge yoga is really in these days for those wondering). Definitely nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of London Town.

After Stonehenge, we headed towards Salisbury, a quaint little town about a half hours drive from Stonehenge. We got to walk around and see the town as well as go to the Cathedral of Saint Mary (Salisbury Cathedral). This church has the tallest church spire in the UK and has the best surviving of the four original copies of the Magna Carta. It was a great town to see and the church was absolutely stunning.

In a few days we are off to Amsterdam to explore & take over the town for a quick 72 hours- wahoo! Hope everyone at home is doing well! X’s & o’s- Lo
