killarney to oxford


hello again!

Well after leaving beautiful killarney bron and I travelled back on the ferry and over to to holy head and then took the train through wales ( which is the prettiest country) to cardiff. Cardiff is a nice city with the bay and it has ( yet another castle!) however this one had a really cool keep with a moat and also the main house was so ornate it was amazing. Wales is famous for its Love spoons which people have been giving each other for years. Carved out of wood symbols on these spoons mean different things. From cardiff we went to bath and of course saw the roman baths, bath abbey and we went to the jane austin centre . Bron and I had a nice tea in the tea centre here.

From there we went to caerphilly and saw the beautiful castle there which is the biggest castle in wales and one of the biggest in britain.

We then travelled to salisbury which of course is home of stone henge which we went out and saw. we hopped on a tour bus and headed out 17.50 pounds! eek! however I thought it was really worth seeing. Put there 5000 years ago and many henges built on top of each other it really is a myster. The biggest mystery however is why it was so looked after and celebrated and then abandoned 3000 years ago. A third of the stones are buried in the ground hence why a lot are still standing. There are also a lot of graves around the henge.

Going back in salisbury we went to the cathedral which has to be one of the prettiest catherdrals we have seen ( although ABC is a common phrase with us now ie Another Bloody Church or Another Bloody Castle lol) However this had a big gothic style room which housed one of the four copies of the magna carte. This of course was written by king John and his knights and was worth seeing.

Salisbury is a very pretty town and I really liked it here

From there we travelled to where i currently am sitting in oxford! so untill next time!
