Roman Baths in Bath

50 Year Project

We didn’t have a lot of time to spend in Bath, but I made sure to visit the Roman Baths in this delightful town.  The baths are well-preserved and are a kick to wander around.  More than one million visitors pop in each year.  Most of the baths are located under the streets.  The bath pictured below is just a fraction of the Roman Baths during their heyday, roughly 2,000 years ago. In addition to seeing the baths you can visit the Grand Pump Room, where you can eat in the restaurant.  Also, you can sample the water from the warm spring.  If you would like to plan a trip to the Roman Baths check out this link.

50 Year Project

I finally made my way out to Stonehenge.   When I first moved here I purchased a Living social deal for a tour to Stonehenge and Bath.  However, each time we tried to plan the trip, the tour company was overbooked or something would come up.  On March 10th we had success.

I’m going to be honest, I don’t know a whole heck of a lot about Stonehenge.  And after listening to our guide, I’m not alone.   For some reason though, I’ve always wanted to see it.   Our guide told us that about 900,000 people visit each year.  Stonehenge is located north of Salisbury.  It is believed that it was erected from 3000BCE to 2000BCE.  In 1986 it was added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

I hope you enjoy the photos.  And if you have your own theory about it I would love to hear it…
