Roman Roots

It has been a few days again between available wifi – but oh, what a time has been had. I’ve travelled through Luxembourg, Austria and Italy to some stunning and very different places – there is so much to see and I know in the future I want very much to return for proper explorations! For today though, we shall travel back approximately a week in my journey; well, give or take…..

Bath – the city built around a hot-spring that has been in use since Roman times – was well worth the time it took to drive there from Oxford. The ancient baths are in incredible condition Β and the views from the top terrace of the bath, pictured here, were stunning. I loved the look of the statues Β against Bath Abbey πŸ˜€

We did drink some of the Bath waters, but it was a little sulphurous…and a little warm. To put it bluntly: EEEEW, YUCK! But as they say, when in Rome, drink bath water….no, actually I think that’s wrong…..well, everyone has to do a cheesy tourist thing sometimes! Here are another two from this top level of the baths because the weather was amazing:

A noble Roman watching over the baths – serving as lifeguard perhaps?

Like I said, the weather was simply brilliant. Perfect for photos and a meandering wander around the city!

Tomorrow and the following day I have scheduled more Bath photos so you can see the green bath water and some of the other pretty views the location had to offer πŸ˜€ Keep having a good time, all – I’ll just try not to get pick-pocketed in Italy πŸ˜‰
