After getting our car in London, we arrived in Bath, England….

The afternoon before,  we managed to make our way through the city (London) on the Tube (metro) and get to Heathrow Airport to pick up the car that I had reserved about 3 months prior to our vacation and little did I know, when we got there it would be a jumbled up mess and it was my fault……..When preparing to go , only two days  before, I didn’t want to have too many credit cards with me so I decided to leave this particular one behind and didn’t realize I needed it to rent this car and had forgotten i used that one at the time of reserving………………OR…………………  pay for the extra insurance , which we didn’t want to do………..to make a long story short, we ended up paying for the insurance , used a different card, I got charged twice for renting the car, which I didn’t even know about until we got home, then I was required to hash it out with the two company’s,….AND…………we had never driven before on the wrong side of the road!!!!!!! The first couple of hours were pretty hectic…..lol…..but we made it to Bath fine and found our hotel room in about an hour (they don’t put numbers on their buildings and they all look alike there……lol) . Around the block we go …..remember, stay on the left side….. no not here….go around the block again and  again and again………hey, there it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want a beer!!!!!!!!

After settling in and finding a parking place (next door a grocery store parking lot underground) we found our British Pub to grab a cold one and relax………It was still pretty early (4pm ) for getting all that done and making it here alive so we toasted to a fun evening and did some people watching……..

Our favorite little spot for a pint and fish and chips....yea!

Toward evening, we walked down by the Roman Baths to find a place for dinner with a view…….Tomorrow, we decided we will go to the baths and tour the whole place……Its quite large and takes the better part of the day to see it all . So much history there and all through this town……Amazing! Very Roman here……..

sweet galore....which one do I want.....I ended up with 2....
