On Sunday the group was exposed to some of the best things about the United Kingdom: Stonehenge, beautiful villages, and a traditional British meal. To make it to Stonehenge for sunrise, we left the hostel around 4 a.m. and drove for about 2 and 1/2 hours.
The long drive was well worth the amazing sight of Stonehenge. Days before we visited, I did not think that I would be as blown away as I was by one of nature’s greatest mysteries. After experiencing it, it is hard to describe such a beautiful sight.
We then visited the town of Salisbury and the village of Lacock. They were both quiet towns, but filled with beauty. We were allowed to look around the Salisbury Cathedral, but photography was not permitted inside of the Cathedral. We also drove to Lacock and visited it’s main attraction, the Abbey. It was fascinating to be in such an old building with so much history, but also great to have walked through the same hallway as Harry, Hermoine, and Ron did in a few Harry Potter movies, as the Abbey was used as Hogwarts in some scenes.
After finishing up at the Abbey and roaming around town, we sat down for a traditional British meal, which we all enjoyed.
Once we were dropped off at our hostel in the late afternoon, many of us chose to take a nap. It was a long, but very fun day, and my favorite day in England thus far!
