Eurotrip Day 1: London, England

by on May.11, 2011, under Eurotrip 2011

Wow I’m so behind, I’m already in Prague and I’m only writing about my day in the UK…but here it is!

So we arrived in London gatwick on the 5th and we had a day there before we flew to Amsterdam. So we decided to rent a car and go somewhere far. We decided to go to Bath, England, home to the roman baths, and Stonehenge. Here is the car we drove:

It some weird shift-tronic transmission system, not quite automatic but also not completely manual…you can still feel the clutch..

On the first leg to bath from gatwick, lily drove but it scared the shit out of me!!! Needless to say, I drove after…

We arrived in bath and here are some of the sites:

The baths actually used water from a hot spring so it was pretty warm! No you dint get to bath in the bath, the water looks kinda disgusting anyways.

From here we depart from Bath and headed to Stonehenge, there were a lot of sheep…

Not much to see there but stonehenge itself…

After that we headed to our night’s accommodation. We stayed at Jason’s cousin’s place in London. The house was quite English:
