Bath Day trip

March had not been a great month for me so far. At the beginning of the month I got all four of my wisdom teeth removed and whilst I was recovering I caught an infection and landed myself back in hospital. I hadn’t reacted very well to the general anesthetic and I even had to miss a few lectures at University. Alex had just recovered from Tonsillitis, so not a great time for two usually fit people.

So we booked a train to Bath, which isn’t far from us at The University of Exeter, for a day to escape reality and responsibilities. We felt very relaxed and recovered after the trip and Bath always has a special place in our hearts because it’sΒ the first place we went together back in November 2015. I forgot my 16-25 railcard, and a very grumpy train guard did not let me off so I was fined (I think Β£20). I brushed it off as we had saved quite a bit through booking the tickets in advance and I was not going to let that ruin our day!

First of all we had a wander around all the streets, taking pictures, listening to the water, wandering through the park.

We were getting a little cold so we headed on a hunt for a cafe. Quite a few of the cafes we passed were full and seeing as we didn’t want to go to a chain that we could find anywhere we kept hunting and came across The Bridge Coffee Shop,Β its a pretty small and quaint place but we couldn’t complain and loved the stickies in particular.

My favourite part of the day was sitting in the square listening to musicians play.

I went into the Bath Aqua Glass store and bought a birthday present for my Nana quite a few months early. They have some great, unique pieces in there including jewellery, vases and christmas tree decorations. Worth a browse if you are in Bath.

It turned into a really nice day and so we sat outside before our train at a restaurant/cafe called Aio for a juice and lemonade. Our train was just before dinner so we couldn’t stay to eat but I would consider it next time because it looked great.

Second time to Bath, and it did not disappoint again. Will definitely be back especially with it being so close to my uni home.
