Day 22

Day 22: WHAT A DAY! My study abroad program took us on an day trip to Startford-Upon-Avon and Warwick Castle. Although the 7 am start time was mighty intimidating for a Saturday morning, It ended up being a wonderful day!

Stratford-Upon-Avon was William Shakespeare’s residence is the 1500’s. In fact many of his plays are said to be inspired by places in and around the town. As we toured his house there were even actors dressed up, ready to perform Shakespeare on command!

After exploring the town we headed down the road to Warwick Castle. Now, I’ve been to a lot of castles but this one takes the cake as the most medieval AND spookiest. The castle is over 1,000 years old, complete with a moat, dungeon AND princess tower. The spookiest part of the day (and my personal favorite) was going on a ghost tour of the grounds ad learning about some of the castle’s infamous legends.
