So I went to London for a miserable 4.5 days and very nearly died when I came home and started work immediately. But it cured my jet lag instantly and my sleep cycle was right back to Singapore time the next day.
I've done one driving trip (Malaysia is not counted) prior to this. The only tips I have is to invest in a good car (seriously! You'll be driving it the whole time for more than 3/4 of the day) and a good GPS (we used Tomtom, which has the map for the whole of Europe too). Anyway, since this was like super short 3 day 2 night trip out of London with the main aim of seeing the Stonehenge, it wasn't too much more expensive to get a relatively nicer car (and bigger boot space for my huge luggage).
So we saw the Stonehenge, which is the main thing that we wanted to see, and it was darn cloudy when I took this picture.
According to my mum, when we visited like 26 years ago, there was no visitors centre, no barriers etc etc so we went all the way up right next to the stones and took a photo (need to rummage around to find the photo, which I will upload when I find it).
The clouds cleared when we went to Avebury stone circle, which is an extension of the StonehengeWoodhenge.
We stayed at this charming little B&B called Cricket Field House. Which has a nice garden, pond, 2 dogs and a lot of ducks.
This was the day we checked in, super cloudy but it cleared up soon after. And this is the cricket field that the B&B overlooks (taken from my room window).
Choice of cereals, preserved fruit, nuts and berries.
The breakfast cereal spread
And a traditional English breakfast (including black sausage, see 11 o'clock)
Smoked salmon and eggs. The mushrooms here are fantastic - super fresh and tasty
More posts on the food later!
