One thing that Nate is really good at, of many many things, is finding good deals online. He is constantly looking on Slick Deals, Living Social, Groupon, and any other site that offers a deal that will save him some money.
On Living Social, he found a great deal for the Golden Bus Tours around England. They offer many different tours that go around lots of different places by bus. So we bought two tours for two different Saturdays for half price! Our tour guide was very kind. He was an older cute British man. They picked us up right by our house which made it very convenient for us.
The tour included three different places to stop at. The first stop was, Hampton Court Palace, one of the many royal palaces around England.
There was so much history to this building, some that isn't so pleasant. Like older kings marrying young 14 year old girls and then the girls being caught with their younger lovers leading them to be killed by having their heads chopped off. Very gruesome but very interesting. The best part about this palace was the beautiful gardens. They were immaculate and so well kept. They were very similar to the gardens at, The Palace of Versailles, in France, but on a lower scale.
The second place that we went to was Stonehenge. It is a prehistoric monument that archaeologists think was constructed around 3000 to 2000 B.C. Here is a picture of it......
Our third and final stop was in a small English town called, Bath. At Bath, we visited an ancient Roman building called, The Roman Baths. It is now a museum.
It was actually quite big, I was surprised! And very very warm. This used to be the only thing really in this town, but now there is quite a big town here as well with shops and restaurants. It got its name after this ancient building, the town of Bath. No one is allowed to bathe in it now. It is for spectators and visitors to tour through and to visit the museum. At the end of the tour, they allowed you to drink some of the water. I took a little sip but it was really warm, and the temperature as well as the whole idea of it kind of grossed me out, so I emptied out the rest of my cup into the drain.
