Almost the end of my England travel diaries.. a month after. We stayed in the Holiday Inn in King's Cross and then the Hilton hotel in Kensington. To be perfectly honest, I enjoyed my stay at the other towns more than in the city of London. I'm guessing it's because it was quite busy just like Shanghai and didn't have the laid-back atmosphere that was so refreshing to see in the small towns. Nevertheless, London was absolutely beautiful and the weather was surprisingly nice.

Currently taking a break from posting the travel diaries from my tip to England last month. Last weekend I got to meet one of my favourite people on the planet - Jenn Im of clothesencounters on Youtube. I was overjoyed when I found out that she was doing a meet and greet in Shanghai. My friend and I went to the Shanghai World Financial Centre in the Google office on Sunday. The place was overwhelmed with young Asian girls adrenalized at the thought of meeting their idol. I was so excited when I met Jenn that I could barely say anything other than "I love your videos so much". Nonetheless, she was super nice and greeted everyone with a big smile. My pictures turned out a bit funny but I guess they captured my emotions pretty well.

Woohoo! Third post on England and I'm not even close to finishing up. The third stop on our trip was in Salisbury, a small town with quite a lot of the elderly. We walked to the cathedral, which was grand and luxurious. I've never been to an actual cathedral before, merely admiring them from afar in my AP World History text books. To have been able to actually see it in person was so satisfying.

In the afternoon, we took the bus to see the stonehenge to which my sister claimed to be "a couple old rocks". Unfortunately the sun was scorching and there were a lot of tourists surrounding it, but the ambiance was breathtaking. (Doesn't the second photo look like a painting?) The stonehenge was cool, but we had to wait extra hours for the bus that didn't come on time. End result? A glorious sunburn for a pale person who does not tan.

We stayed for one and a half days and one night in Bath. I have to say Bath is amazing as a holiday destination candidate. The weather was beautiful, the people were the nicest, and the scenery was breathtaking. I quite enjoyed our stay at the MacDonald Spa Hotel. After strolling around the city/town, we went to see the Roman Bath exhibition. There's so much history too this little town and the architecture was significantly different than that of what I am used to. Even though we spent such little time in the town, it left such a great impression in my mind that I would definitely want to revisit some day.
