Stonehenge / Wiltshire #travelthursday

One of the best things to do at this time of year living in Britain is to hop in your car with some great company, a picnic, a map, your favourite music and go for a road trip.

Pop up to the lakes, go for a relaxing spa in Bath's thermal pools or nip down to Wiltshire.

Your mission should you choose to accept it is to find;

1) A wonder of the world
2) A dinky off the beaten track pub that sells wonderful food
3) A rude sounding place name
4) A farm animal
5) Somewhere that looks like a fairy meadow

and you have to lose your way at least once - it's road trip law.

Are you up for a challenge?

I don't know the name of this place, but it had the BEST roast dinner,

topped off by my Banana Cake. Mmmm

The hardest part of the trip? Coming home.

What's your most favourite road trip? Was it planned or spontaneous?


  1. I tell ya, it's not hard to find a rude sounding place name in England! haha. I love doing the same thing, spontaneous little road trips to find places. My most favourite road trip was a short few day impromptu trip in NZ where we had no plans and discovered amazing things, and did things that we never even would have thought of had we planned it :)

    1. It's so much fun. One day I want to do an Inbetweener style roadtrip, and round up a whole load of naughty place names. Childish I know! The weird thing is how pretty all of these places are?
      The spontaneous ones can absoloutly be the best. Maybe it's because you aren't building it up in your mind to only be disappointed?
      One of my 101 in 1001 goals is to go roadtripping and use a spinner to decide where to go.

  2. My best friend lives in Wiltshire, I love going to visit! Boy's aunt lives just a few miles away as well in a really cute little town that is so picturesque and lovely to wander around. I don't think I can pick a favourite road trip (total cop out I know!) - there are so many great places in the UK and I love to explore anywhere I end up!

    1. Very nice! There are so many pretty & dinky little villages too - how do you pick?

  3. I think one of my fave roadtrips in the UK was the one to Cornwall...although that said I don't remember much about it except for how lovely Cornwall was!! I'm clearly all about the destination not the journey :) xx

    1. Cornwall is definitely on my list - it looks utterly gorgeous! x
