FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE



more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. While we had such a good weather from the beginning of my round trip through the UK, it started to rain from Monday on, just the two last days of our trip !



I still had sunshine in Liverpool to visit the Beatles'places and where they started their career.

2. But then the next day we got our shower !



and visited Bath in pouring rain. My friend and I took a sightseeing bus to avoid the worst !

3.



We drove through beautiful green landscapes, even more green in the rain and Stonehenge too was full of tourists and their umbrellas ! Fortunately it was warm and dry in the bus !

4.



We spent the last night in London and visited the town and as it still rained we went to Harrod's and walked around. We also looked at the memorial of Diana and Dodi in Harrod's Egptian section in the basement.

Then it was time to catch our train back to Brussels. In not even 2 h we were there, very tired, but very happy with the tour we had done. It was so well organized and besides the daily fights for seats in the bus, everything went smooth, and there was nothing to complain about.

Mr. G. picked me up at the station and started a full detailed report of everything what had happened during my absence. As nothing special had happened I didn't even listen as I still was with my holiday memories.

5. I slept quiet long to recover from my 9 day's trip, and then started to unpack my suitcase and sort out the hundreds of pictures I had taken. That will probably take a few days !

If you want to read more about my trip just scroll down, I reported every day.


Thanks to all of you who followed my trip and commented ! I had no time to comment at all, it was already quiet difficult to post every day, but I wanted a kind of diary. Internet connection in some hotels was so expensive, although we always had the same hotels (Ibis and Premier Inn).

Poor Mr. G.!

Sounds like a great trip despite the rain.

Susanne said...

Sounds like Mr. G. missed you! :v)

Nice of the rain to let you have most of your holiday and hold off until the last two days. I love, love, love the picture of the rain streaked window and all the colorful umbrellas. Would be really nice framed!

I love England and have visited twice. Fortunately we got only little bits of rain a couple of days and the day we went to Stonehenge, it was dry. Bath is normally a fun place to walk around. Too bad it was raining for you.

Yes, I agree with Susanne-- I think Mr. G missed you!

Lovely photos. They make me want to visit England right now.
