I can't believe how quiet it is today...
We have had a busy almost whirlwind like week with visitors from Norway who bid us farewell yesterday afternoon! It will take us a few days 'to land' after such a week!
For the second year running I went travelling with them to a UK destination. Last year we went to Jane Austin's beautiful Bath which you can read about here and here. This year Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare was the destination. Seems to be a literary theme developing here, I think!
|Anne Hathaway's Cottage|
Our Boy had to stay home to study for his upcoming exams, but that gave him some much appreciated time with his father.
|I just loved this willow hut...|
We were really not lucky with the weather for this part of the week as it was miserably cold and damp. Still, the flowers are all in full bloom.
One of the highlights was when we went to see Anne Hathaway's cottage (the wife of William). The pictures are all from the cottage and the grounds. It was so quaint and cute!
|From inside the cottage - all left as when it was inhabited..|
The place had great guides which really made history come alive.
To be honest, due to the unfriendly weather we didn't really see too much of Stratford-upon-Avon apart from a quick walk through a part of town.
But we did venture some other places nearby...
To be continued...!
