After seven years of marriage, Jared and I have learned what triggers our fights, and number 1 on that list is Jared's driving. So with that being said, I'm the driver and he's the navigator...it just works best. Although I'm comfortable with driving in America, it's a totally different ballgame in England. The steering wheel is on the right side of the car and you drive on the left side of the road...just think about that for a minute. Also, there are no 4-way stops in England, only roundabouts that can be super confusing. But with the help of some awesome YouTube videos the night before, we felt confident that we were ready for the road!
We hired (that's British for rented) a car and picked up our dear friends Katie and Jordan for our first ever England road trip. We were armed with Crystal Light, Gushers and aluminum foil. Odd combination you might think but all three are essential to see the "Henge" in style (you'll soon learn more about the foil).
|Check out my nervous smile, strained neck and white knuckles...just a tad uptight! Also, do my eyes look closed?!?|
|One more roundabout and we're there!|
|I had some excited passengers!!!|
You can't get real close to the rocks but it is awe-inspiring to see just how big they really are!
|We listened intently to the guide that gave us several different theories of why Stonehenge is Stonehenge.|
Unfortunately no contact was made, but we did get a few chuckles out of the Stonehenge staff. Did I mentioned that these two boys go to Oxford and Katie is PA school bound. Me, well, this silliness is a perfect example of my normal behavior!
