Destination: Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England.
Date: 26 November 2011

Stonehenge here we come! Being one of the top places to visit in England and one of the most mysterious places in the world, we decided to go to Stonehenge. We rent a car from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire to this place and the journey took about 1 hour 50 minutes.

The car parking is free! Anyhow you have to pay for the admission or else you could view the stones for free from a bit far distance. Ticket price is £7.50 for an adult & £4.50 for a child. For more information you could visit here English Heritage or Stonehenge.

Above is the complimentary audio guide which must be returned at the exit but subject to availability. This audio guide available in 10 languages but to listen to it you must put it near to your ear, which make me felt quite unpleasant as I would prefer to be hand-free because I was pushing my baby in her stroller. Anyhow my hubby got his earphone, so he could use it without having to hold the device, making everyone looks like as they were talking on the mobile phone! :)

The exact purpose of the stones remain a mystery.

Hubby & our honeybun enjoyed watching the big stones on her Stokke Evo.

Above is called as Heel Stone.

Our daughter is watching the sheep!

The admission fees will be used for the conservation of this heritage monument.

You could buy light refreshment from the Stonehenge Kitchen. They provide some tables and chairs for you to eat or drink but they are outdoor, so if you would like to visit during cold weather, do not expect to enjoy your refreshment in warm place!

Furthermore, when visiting during Winter, bare in mind that the day is shorter. During our visit around 4.30pm it was already getting dark.

Besides that, they have the Stonehenge gift shop for visitors to buy any gifts :)

All in all, besides getting a chance to see and learn about the Stonehenge, we could see the beauty of the green land with many sheep around. For those who do not fancy beauty of the nature, this place might provide nothing to you.

Pick Your Own Fruits at Red Road Plant Centre, Kineton, Warwickshire, England.

Destination: Road Plant Centre, Kineton, Warwickshire, England.
Date: 2 July 2011

It was our first Strawberries picking! Hubby chose to go to the Road Plant Centre, Kineton, as it is just about 20 minutes from our house in Leamington Spa.

We were welcomed by a friendly lady. Upon our arrival at around 11.30am, there were only few people visiting. So we felt like we could enjoy picking the fruits at a leisurely pace! ;)

What best was at the time of our visit this place offered the cheapest price for the strawberries, 1kg = £3.45, whereby other commercial centre would usually sell at £3.60 per kg. Moreover, they didn't have the entry fee. You just need to pay for what u have picked!

Visitors are allowed to have a taste of their fruits, though not to have a feast!

 Our daughter enjoyed picking her favourite fruit! She is 8 months 15 days!

 This area, the Strawberries are call as Lucy!

Besides Strawberries, there were many other fruits like Gooseberries, Blackcurrants, Raspberries, Redcurrants and Tayberries.  For Autumn they will have Apples, Corn and many more!

The Beautiful of Girona Ancient City

Destination: Girona City, Spain
Date: 2 January 2010

For me Girona City is a very nice ancient city. During our visit here, I could say that we were the only Asian there we could see. Hehe. Most people kind of staring at us. The funny things about some of the local people here is about communication.  Not all local people here could speak English. We were talking to one of the shop keeper there in English but then she was just keep on talking in Spanish. She was trying very hard to try to make us understand but we just didn't get it. Huhuhu~

Our next destination is Barcelona!
