This week we did more exploring of London as well as some of the towns outside of London, such as Bath and Winchester. As for tourist-y London things we rode the London Eye and explored South Bank along the Thames. We also poked around the Tate Modern art museum. London is lovely and all but seeing the countryside this weekend was wonderful. It's so beautiful; pictures don't do it justice. This weekend we visited Bath and Avebury as well as Stonehenge and Winchester. Bath was by far my favorite. I felt like I was in Italy because a lot of the architecture was built by the Romans, including the hot spring baths shown above. There were lots of adorable shops and restaurants, too. We ate a feast of traditional British foods at a pub called the Crystal Palace. The food was so delicious. I was in a food coma for the rest of the day. 

Winchester was also a cute town where we saw Jane Austen's house and grave along with Winchester Cathedral. We ate at another pub (surprised? haha) called The Old Vine. I got the mezze plate of hummus, olives, feta and falafel--so good! There was also an adorable shop there called Style & Winch that I loved shown above. They had the most amazing pair of dark purple suede booties, but I didn't have the heart to hurt my wallet so early in the trip. I'm still keeping my eyes open for my one must-have London item!
I hope you all had a good week! Thanks for reading!
