Day 112

Salisbury

Today was our day with our car, so we did a big re-pack to make sure we were able to carry everything ourselves. Our parking was almost up, so we decided to drive a little towards Salisbury cathedral. This turned out to be a harder task that we anticipated as there wasn’t much around, so after quite a bit of driving around, we walked a few blocks and entered the cathedral grounds. Apparently it has the tallest spire in the country, so we thought we might as well see what all the fuss was about. We’ve been into many churches over our travels, and this one was rather large. There wasn’t anything too different in the inside the church, apart from the Magna Carta. No photos of course, but it was great to see a little piece of history!


Bidding farewell from Salisbury, we headed up to Stonehenge. As soon as we hopped out the car we were frozen to the bone by the icy winds. We rushed down the tunnel under the road and picked up our audio guides. With all good intentions, we listened to the first audio guide track, and the second, but by the third we couldn’t move our fingers so it was hands back in the pockets.
















The car was due back in London at 4, and we had plenty of time up our sleeves, so we set out looking for a nice pub for some lunch. I can’t remember the name of the town, but the pub served a nice steak and chicken kiev.

 We took off into London, with some basic directions, but surprisingly it was the most easiest drive-in we’ve had. We even managed to find the car hire place with no fuss, but with us, there’s always 1 slight problem and this time it was the half full petrol tank! Knowing the stupid cost they’d charge for petrol, we drive around trying to find a station and do you think we could find one? Stopped and even asked directions, but do you think Londoners know what, let alone where petrol stations are. Eventually we went into Hertz and asked them, who gave us directions. With no mention of the scratches to the bumper, we rushed out of hertz, receipt in hand, and set out on our way to Laura’s house (my Nephew’s Godmother). We weren’t due there till 6, so we slowly worked our way up the street, stopping in several cafes for coffee and to escape the rain.
