Everybody knows of Stonehenge and everybody likes to call it just a pile of rocks. Well, it is a pile of rocks, but the great thing about visiting Stonehenge is to give yourself a chance to think of how this awesome pile of rocks got here. As my hosts kept on saying, the only reason to visit Stonehenge is "it's for the atmosphere."Usually visiting Stonehenge requires the visitor to stand behind a rope about 30 feet away from the actual pile of rocks. However, we obtained a pass for the "Inner Circle Tour." By paying about double the entrance fee you get to step over the rope and walk amongst the rock.

Imperial War Museum is not on everyone’s top list of things to do while visiting London, however, it was my favorite museum.

You have to take the brown line (Elephant & Castle) almost to the end to the Lambeth stop. Stepping out from the tube you definitely feel like you are in the suburbs. A five minute walk gets you to the museum. At the m...Read More
