The very first thing I'll say in this post is that I wish we had taken better photos. This is an absolutely gorgeous property, and this link will take you to the Bath Boutique Stays page, where you'll see their photos and a walkthrough video. When we arrived in Bath, we were worn down, and I still felt pretty rotten from my illness in Italy. We were supposed to have two nights there, but were only able to stay one due to the illness, and the real camera never made it out of
"No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." - Samuel Johnson We love London, plain and simple. There's something about the city that seems to draw us back in, and it's personally in my top 5 favorite cities I've ever visited. There's no mistaking yourself for being anywhere else in the world, and the mix between old and new is striking. On our last trip, we knocked off a few sites that had been on our list f
Oh, Bath. *sigh* Where do we even begin? It's not an exaggeration to say that this is one of our favorite cities we've ever visited. We already wrote up our stay at Jane Austen's Apartments, and you can read about that here. I think the first thing that captured our hearts is the charm of the city. It's cute, y'all.

Scarper Tours picks you up from the Abbey Hotel, which was conveniently located and a short walk from our hotel. The group was large enough for us to take
And, no I’m not kidding. I don’t know about you, but I made it through my mega awkward teenage years by living and breathing Jane’s novels. Through even the worst times in my life, I could always find friendship and solace in Jane’s company. That love for her work has followed me well into adulthood, and I don’t find it overly ambitious to say I could qualify as her #1 fan. When people chalk up her masterpieces to "just love stories", I can feel steam pouring out of my ears.
Amidst the tranquil English countryside sits a darling little town named Warwick, and in its heart lies the domineering Warwick Castle. As we haul all of our luggage off the train at the stop, we quickly look about the area deciding how to get to our next destination. As a Christmas present, my parents bought us a night’s stay at the castle, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s in store. Deciding on a taxi, we hop in and motor away as I give a call to the concierge
