Salisburry, a little town in England, where you will find one copy of the Magna Carta

Welcome to England

Ahh, England, land of fish and chips, beer and lovely B&B (Bead & Breakfast). All yours, once you hopp off the Channel ferry. Unless of course you don’t feel like getting sea sick and take the train. Which worked actually really well. The whole process of buying a ticket, getting on the train with my bike and driving to England took me a bit more than an hour.

Nice way to cross the channel

Oh, and a word about english food. It is not as bad as it’s reputation.  I had a hamburger in a restaurant for lunch and while the Americans might have invented the burger, it’s perfection takes place in other countries🙂

I ended the day in Salisbury, quite famous for it’s cathedral where one of the four still existing original copies of the Magna Carta (dating back to 1215) is exhibited. But that had to wait for the next day, as the cathedral was already closed once I arrived there in the rain.

Isn't this how we all imagine England to look like?

Ahhhh… english weather🙂

I ended the day in a great B&B with view on the cathedral and a great host who really took great care of his guests. Should you ever be in the area, check out the Cathedral View B&B and tell Steve and Wenda I sent you along.

Did I mention I had a room with a great view?
