Bath and Beyond

Driving through the green English countryside on a perfectly sunny day is absolutely dreamy. Walking through the historic city of Bath, where Jane Austen lived for 5 years and found inspiration for such loved characters as Mark Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett, is even dreamier. I am still reminiscing about the quaint cobblestone streets, ancient Roman Baths, magnificent residential homes of Georgian architecture, and an overpriced tourist trap known as the Jane Austen Centre which greets visitors with a photo of actor Colin Firth (you should already know who that is).

I actually recognized one of the buildings from the new BBC production of Persuasion. The pictures are wonderful and I would love such a tour! joy
