I spent a week in London, wearing out my welcome, staying with my friend Dylan (and checking out World Travel Market). And then I spent a couple of nights staying with my friend Jacob, who I met in Vietnam, and who I was originally traveling to England to see… (That is a whole other story in itself.)
I didn’t really have a plan for what to do after London. I didn’t really have a plan for this trip at all. I had heard nice things about Bath, England, though, so I decided to book a bus ticket and travel there as my next destination.
Bath is just as lovely of a town as I’d heard, with quaint squares surrounded by shops and tea houses and the picturesque Pulteney Bridge spanning the River Avon.
I spent some time in town visiting the Roman Baths, a historical site once used for public bathing. I visited Bath Abbey, a Medieval church with a Victorian Gothic interior. And, being late November, I visited the Bath Christmas Market, and saw the Christmas lights turned on around the square at “The Christmas Lights Switch On” with a ceremony presided over by Mary Berry from The Great British Bake Off.
Bath was a lovely little getaway, a sharp departure from the bustling London, and a charming place to wander and clear my head…
