Day number seven we took a day trip to Stone Henge and the Roman Baths, they were amazing! Stone Henge is unbelievable, and I still can't quite wrap my head around how they built that so many years ago. Our tour guide, Sarah, told us that it was built around 4-5 thousand years ago. The holes that the stones are sat up in were dug with antler pics and cow shoulder blades! How is that even possible? After Stone Henge we moved onto the Roman Baths, which were also beautiful! The water in the Roman Bath is said to have healing powers and people used to bath in it and also drink it. We actually drank some, and no not the water people bathed in. There is still a hot spring flowing into it, and they had a convenient little water fountain with the spring water available to drink! It was actually really good, and very warm. After the wandering through the Roman Bath museum we were able to look around the town of Bath, but we were tired and took a nap on a little patch of grass in the middle of town instead :).
