My husband and I were very lucky to stay with good friends in Wales. They drove us all over Wales and England. Good people, good food, good memories. Miss 'em!
STONEHENGE! -- is incredible to visit to actually see in person...but not enough to pay $20 to get 20 feet closer. You can't touch it, just walk along a sidewalk 15-20 ft. from the stones. We just stayed on this side of the fence-for free...
Here is the monumental TINTERN ABBEY skeleton. This was a sweet morning with the sun shining through!
We visited amazing castles and abbeys in Wales: Cardiff Castle (old & new), Caerphilly Castell, Castle Coch, St. Faggans Cathedral, Llandaf Cathedral, Bath Abby, and the great Tintern Abby. All slightly different styles, but mainly built in the 1100-1200's. The shapes, styles, colors and aging was very intriguing and inspiring. My husband took so many photos, we could publish a book.
