A Nerdy Girlie Christmas Vacation: Day 2 Stonehenge

Day two in London, was our day trip to Stonehenge.  This was the thing The Hunny was most excited for.  I was happy that we did not have to wake up early for this trip, as I was still adjusting to the time change.  I fell asleep the night before at 8 p.m., woke up at 11:30 p.m. thinking it was way later, and stayed awake for an hour before taking some Nyquil.  I woke up feeling much better.
We arrived at the bus station with time to spare, so we had time to explore the surrounding area.  I was again happily surprised to stumble upon something unexpected, the Philip Treacy hat shop, where all the Royals get their hats!  I just peaked through the window, I didn't go in I didn't feel fancy enough!
The bus ride to Stonehenge took almost three hours, through the crazy rain and wind. I slept the entire way and woke up feeling like I had finally adjusted to the time change.  Upon arrival it was still pouring rain and so windy that I was being pushed along the path by it!  Even though the weather was less than ideal, the smile never left my face.
I still could not believe where we were and what we were seeing.  It was so fascinating and awe inspiring.  We were out by the stones for about ten minutes when we had to head back to the tram because we were soaked through.  Totally worth it.  We dried off in the museum and gift shop, before hopping on the bus back to London.
After the bus ride back into London, we made an unexpected stop near Harrods.  This was not our official stop, but I begged my companions to jump off so we could go into the HUGE store.  Everyone told me I had to go there and I was so glad we were able to.  It was a dream inside and out!  I am so happy we were able to see it all light up at night!
After a long and amazing day, the cherry on top was seeing this me size poster of MY Doctor, David Tennant in the Tube station!  I had to stop and give him a lil kiss!  

Stay tuned for day three of my UK trip, where on Christmas Eve we head to Oxford!

I hope to go to Stonehenge someday! How close were you able to get?


Miranda we were pretty close! They do have tours that let you go inside the ring, they were just a bit more pricey. There is a path that you walk up to the site and goes around it. So my estimate would be maybe 20 feet? Thank you for the comment! xo
