    Exploring Bath and Stonehenge

    The last weekend was a long one cause of Easter and we’ve typically not done much on the Easter Monday bank holiday. However, Seema and Rodney, who were in London and bunking with us, had already booked tickets to visit Bath and Stonehenge. So, Ashwina and I also tagged along. We arrived at Victoria before 8am well ahead of our scheduled departure. It allowed us to get some decent seats in the middle of the bus.

    Photos from Gunby Hall

    Taking advantage of the bank holiday, Ashwina and I took a trip to Gunby Hall which is a National Trust property in Skegness.

Here are some select photos from our walk.

    Scotland calling: Alnwick Castle

    Ashwina and I returned from Paris yesterday after taking off for a short break before Christmas. But the story on that will be in a later post. This post is dedicated to the 1 day trip we had back in September during our holiday in Scotland. We had started the holiday in Edinburgh and had booked a day’s tour with Timberbush to Holy Island, Bamburgh & Alnwick Castle – Northumberland & The Scottish Borders. The one day tour started off early in the morning from the foot of Edinburgh Castle. The official tour starts off with the first visit at Lindisfarne Castle and Holy Island, but because of high tide…
