Have you ever heard the quote “Some of the best adventures come from life’s unplanned moments”? Well, I can honestly say that this quote rang true for me during my trip to the United Kingdom last month. I had originally planned to visit Edinburgh, Scotland, London, England, and Paris, France and spend about 5 days in each city. The hotels were booked, tours scheduled, lists of restaurants and shopping districts…. and then the unfortunate terror attacks took place in London and Paris less than a month before my scheduled trip. I have to admit I was very nervous to leave the country when so much tragedy and turmoil was taking place in the very cities I had planned to visit. If it had just been a solo trip I would not have been as worried but, I was traveling with my daughter, her friend, and my niece, and I was responsible for their safety. So, I started to look at other options that would work with the original flight/train plans that we already had in place. I pulled up a map of the U.K and then randomly picked a city that wasn’t too far from London…. Bath…. and it turned out to be one of the best unplanned decisions of my life! I knew nothing about Bath and didn’t really have the time to research anything other than the hotel where we were going to stay, however, the minute we arrived there, I knew it was meant to be. Although we did still spend a few days in London, I was so glad we cut our time there short to make the lovely detour to Bath. I fell completely in love with this gorgeous city and can’t wait to go back and spend more time there! It’s definitely a place that you want to add to your travel bucket list and here are 15 photos to show you why! Enjoy!
