summer of 2000 cont'd: day trips outside of london

the first day trip we took outside of london was to stratford-upon-avon, the birth place of william shakespeare. we spent some time being tourists, and caught one of willie's plays--as you like it.

the second day trip was to oxford. danny, david, brandy and i took a train and rode out to wander near oxford university. we were walking aimlessly in the streets when we saw this cathedral tower and noticed that there were people standing on a balcony near the top. we found our way to this old church and climbed a narrow ancient stone steps (danny found a pigeon nest) to the bell tower. the view was incredible.

last day trip outside of london brought us to three different towns. we (david, brandy & i) wanted to see stonehenge, but we didn't plan for anything else. turns out that to get to stonehenge we had to catch a train to salisbury, and take a bus from there to our destination. after visiting stonehenge, we checked out the salisbury cathedral before heading out to brighton, a beach town on the english channel. i roamed around all day with a fever and congested cough, but it was well worth my effort.
