Stonehenge – Celebrating Solstice

Posted October 14, 2019 by Kidmoses

Stonehenge, the rock-forged monument in Wiltshire is an absolute must-see when visiting southern England. It should be on everybody's list. We booked our timed-tickets online two days before our visit. Timed-tickets are used to control the number of visitors to Stonehenge at any one time. One could just show up to purchase tickets (and many do), but pre-booking is the only way to guarantee entry on a particular day and time during tourist season.

A Day At Durdle Door (huh?)

Posted October 7, 2019 by Kidmoses

At the top of my list of things to do while vacationing in Dorset was visit Durdle Door along the Jurassic Coast of south-central England. This huge limestone arch with a hole in it was created towards the end of the last ice age. And some of the exposed rock along this coast dates from the Upper Jurassic era of 150 million years ago... Durdle Door is the most noteworthy landscape feature along the coastal stretch known as Jurassic Coast.

Thomas Hardy’s Cob And Thatch Cottage

Posted October 2, 2019 by Kidmoses

Thomas Hardy’s cottage is a quaint, cob and thatch house that sits next to the Thorncombe Woods. Mostly, the cottage feels like it is in the middle of a gorgeous, fairy-tale forest. This is where Hardy was born in 1840 and lived until he was thirty-four. During this time, he wrote the classic novels Under the Greenwood Tree and Far from the Madding Crowd.

Learning To Drive In Brighton, England

Posted September 25, 2019 by Kidmoses

Having never been to England before and not wanting to drive in London, I decided to rent a car in Crawley, drive to the south coast and follow it west to the Dorchester area. Sounded like a better plan. We caught the train early enough in London and arrived in Crawley about 9:30 AM. In the rain. We grabbed a taxi to the car rental location. The car wasn’t ready when we arrived...

Exploring London In A Day

Posted September 23, 2019 by Kidmoses

We crossed over the London Bridge and walked back to the hotel along the north side of the River Thames. We stopped along the way to get a better look at the infamous Tower of London. The Tower is one of the world’s oldest and most famous prisons. Originally built in the late 11th century as a fortress to protect London and a royal residence, it soon become the preferred incarceration site for anyone deemed a threat...

Parc Floral De Paris

Posted September 16, 2019 by Kidmoses

On our last day in Paris, we decided to forego the major attractions and just have a relaxing day. The idea of strolling through a local park away from the beaten path felt right after days of maneuvering through traffic and tourists. We discovered the Parc Floral de Paris was relatively close to our flat, and it had quite good reviews. It is one of four botanical gardens in Paris, and hosts major flower shows annually. The nearest metro station to the park is Chateau-de-Vincennes.
