Go local: a visit to Bath in the UK

Yeah, I love my travels. Hopping on a plane, and transporting yourself to a location where you find inspiration, challenging environments and other forms of living. I’m totally aware that you don’t always need to travel far to find this. In the UK take a trip to Bath and you might just find all that.

Stonehenge – half an hour from Bath is Stonehenge. A circle of big stones from between 2000 – 3000 BC is a throwback in time. It is possibly a burial ground of ancient times, and when you stand there it can’t but amaze you how different that time must have been to how we live now. Make sure to book this one in, on your way to Bath.

Roman baths – take a leap in time and transport yourself to approximately 60 AD when the Roman baths were built that you will find in this town. This historical site in the city gave it its name when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon.

Royal Crescent – and then in the 18th Century the Royal Crescent was built. This build of 30 terraced houses is the most iconic site in town and a great example of Georgian architecture. It is this style that is dominant all over Bath.

And if you add to this a great range of historical streets with nice restaurants, good hotels and quirky shops what more excuses would you need to spend your weekend here instead of taking the plane to somewhere?

    Lieve Mariska, Ben je daar geweest? Nog op de rechtbank? Hier schitterend weer, de vorst is weg en de laatste sneeuw verdampt
