What a great trip we had! Twas our first w/o the kids, so it was like a second honeymoon.
I arrived at T3 in Heathrow (after sleeping all night with a strange man – the one in the seat next to me), spent about 30 min. getting through customs, found my way to the coach station and bussed it to Swindon. The next day I left early to head for Bath and had a lovely day in there. Got there before the Roman Baths opened, so I walked around and was greeted by a Starbucks Chai Latte. Took my time in the baths, did the walking tour and most of us went our own way once we got to the Cresent. Went to the Fasion Museum from there. It was nice, but didn't meet up to all the hype, I thought. Got a pastey at the Cornish place across from Starbucks, then headed to the Abbey and looked around there. Then went to my 2:30 reservations at the PumpHouse. That was quite lovely! Then I walked around looking at shops and went across the Putnam bridge, waiting for my husband to pick me up. He didn't arrive until about 6pm and I felt like I'd seen all I wanted to see at that point. I'm not sure what i would do if I'd been there for 3 days like some had suggested!
