Day 5: Freedom!

By Christine Whiteaker

A large group of us, Gabe, David, Jacob, Nathan, Christine, Amy, Rebecca, and Heather, all woke up pretty early and hopped on a train to Bath. When we arrived into the city we went to the visitor center to pick up some postcards and maps of the city. Then we went into the Bath Abbey which was beautiful. It had fanned vaulting which made the ceiling absolutely gorgeous. Then we went on a walking tour lead by volunteers. For 2 hours we walked around the city hearing about how Bath has changed throughout the years. After the tour we found a place that served Pasties which were warm and yummy after walking around in the cold.

Then we hopped on another train and made a connection to Oxford. We were able to walk around Trinity College and see the Chapel, Dinning Room, and grounds. We picked up some souvenirs at a local Oxford shop and then headed for dinner at the Eagle and Child, where Lewis and Tolkien would meet and talk about the books they were writing. We arrived back in London at about 9pm tired from a long day sightseeing.
