How to get from London to Bath? That was the question of the week, some months back. Should we take a day tour bus? Most, if not all, include additional stops at Stonehenge and Windsor Castle,  leaving only a few hours in Bath proper. Renting a car was out of the question; me? drive on the left side?  No, I don’t think so….
The train it was. And very easy it was: Charing Cross Station toBath Spa with departures every hour. One word of caution: buy your tickets on line before your day of departure. We paid SO MUCH more as we bought them at the station that morning…as in each round trip was about $80.00! A woman we met while out in Bath had paid about $40.00 by purchasing a week ahead.

We had been told by several people just how beautiful and unique a city it is. With gorgeous Georgian architecture at every turn, we wandered for about an hour through the very easy to navigate downtown, then hopped on the free shuttle bus up to
The American Museum in Britain.

Welcome back for more on our upcoming

 The apartment we rented was in the Marais and very convenient.

This apartment is called “Le Provencal” and is rented through Parler Paris Apartments and Adrian Leeds. Adrian has many apartments throughout Paris (and now in Nice!) and I recommend her highly. She and her agency are a pleasure to deal with, very attentive to detail, and the apartments are immaculate. No request is too small for her team.
Daughter and I settle into an apartment or hotel room easily. We know each other’s boundaries, we respect the other’s need for privacy, we can tell the other one to hush during the night if one is, ahem, making noise.

On to some shopping and about town.
We “do” shopping very well together! It’s so helpful to have someone to fetch another size or color or just […]
