So, I know I said I don’t post often about my life, but I guess I’m breaking all the rules lately. CUZIWENTTOENGLAND. Sorry, I just had to share that.
It’s the homeland of amazing authors throughout the ages, breathtaking scenery and Harry Potter movie filming.
Being there for awhile would also explain my lack of posting. In case you didn’t notice…I didn’t blog for like 5 days each the last two weeks. I was so excited to schedule ALL THE POSTS and ended up scheduling a grand total of two. Oops.
Anyway, I’m back and I’ll never leave you again. Until the next time I go somewhere.
England is For (Book) Lovers
Here are a few movie and book-related photos from my time in the UK:
The River Avon in Bath – from the most recent Les Miserables movie. Javert jumped into into it
In Lacock, Cotswolds. This is where some of the Harry Potter films where shot for the Hogsmeade Village.
Also in the Cotswolds. This is James and Lily’s house in Godric’s Hollow
Letting out my inner (and outer) nerd. Platform 9 3/4s at King’s Cross Station! Also, that was not my scarf…but I wish it was.
This has no real significance. It was just a little peace of heaven at the British Library (home to TONS of amazing books – Shakespeare, Chaucer, the Beatles).
A door to a church in the Cotswolds that Tolkien visited. It supposedly inspired the doorway to Moria! SO COOL!
Death Eaters totally destroyed this bridge (Millennium Bridge) in London. Jerks.
A couple other photos taken by my talented hubs.
The Roman Baths in Bath. Also Jane Austen lived in Bath for awhile. Apparently she hated it there though…
Stonehenge. I think SOME book should be set here. It’s old, creepy and could definitely involve druids of some type. Who’s up for it?!
Keeping it classy, like I do.
I really wanted to pet one.
If you ever have a chance to go to the north Lake District (Keswick) in England, DO IT! You’ll never see more scenic landscape ever! One of my friends saw this pic and said: “I hope you’re wandering around like Jane Austen.”
“What are men to rocks and mountains!”
The London Eye, or how I like to refer to it, my worst idea ever. A story for another time lol.
Big Ben and Parliament Building
Oh my gosh, so much fun.
Thanks for letting me share this with you!
