England 2014: Day 3 – The Pillars of The Earth and The Ride of My Life

Here we are at Day 3! Tuesday, July 29th was a departure from the day prior; instead of being part of a tour all day, the sestra and I were left to our own devices and we ventured out on our own. Once again, I can’t tell you enough how pleased I was and am with the rail system in the UK. We were entirely dependent on the network during our trip, and it was great! This post features delicious breakfast, a towering spire, some more history, and this:

England 2014: Day 1 – Travel & Arrival in Bath

Well, hello there.

If there was anything that would get me to (finally!) post here once more, it is – unsurprisingly – the epic, long-awaited trip I’ve just returned from. Based upon the time I’m writing this post (it’s currently 5:25am as I start this), you can tell my jet lag hasn’t quite shaken off; I figured it’s as good a time as any to get this series of posts started. Herein, I will detail my travels, experiences, tips & tricks, and pros & cons of certain products I availed of during my trip, which will hopefully inspire you to travel and give you some insight next time you’re in the same regions!
