So, usually when we go on trips, I'm a bit 'in charge' of finding interesting things to do. I look up things on the internet and in books, magazines, etc, and try to find something that we all will enjoy. So, on this trip (to Bath and Bristol) I found Cheddar Gorge, which is in Cheddar, UK. It's where the original cave-aged cheddar cheese was made! So, you've probably figured out that they have...caves! I thought it would be fun. And it was, but it was also one of the biggest tourist traps we'd ever been to, who would've thought? So, there were a ton of people. We decided on a bus tour and a cave tour. The bus tour was neat, all 10 minutes of it (after waiting in line for a good hour!!!) and the cave was even better, educational even. But when we were done, it was a bit like, we've had enough it's time to GO!
|The highlight of my bus tour? This gorgeous beauty who sat beside me!|
|Cheddar was very pretty with lots of little nooks and crannies and surprises tucked in around each corner|
|My super handsome boy!|
|We bought some REAL cheddar in Cheddar! This was the cute store that we bought it at. We all had a favorite, I liked the garlic herb, Joe the cave aged, and Jon the bleu. Joci liked them ALL!|
|Loved these little flowers and plants that grew in the cracks of the walls.|
|Cheddar Gorge was impressive. It was much bigger than the pictures let on.|
