Shakespeare’s Humble Abode

The Olympic quest took a jaunt up to Stratford on Avon which is the very place that Shakespeare called home. While his home was very cool and interesting to see along with his wife Ann Hathaway residence I was personally more interested in Stratford itself. It was extremely interesting for me to see the towns from numerous books almost jump out of my imagination and present itself as this wonderful little place.

I do say little because that was how it felt, as though we were in a small cozy village where everyone knew everyone else. That was until our guide Jon informed us that the city was home to 25,000 people. I could not believe how the atmosphere really was able to fool me into believing that there were such small amount of people when I was completely wrong.

We’ll be going through to tube this evening to take a gander at the st. Paul cathedral as well as the millennium bridge that was in the order of the phoenix. After that jaunt we’ll be checking out the pubs on fleet street. Should be quite the adventure!
