Wow, Bath is unreal. Jaime, I know why you wanted to come here so badly! It is absolutely breathtaking, beautiful, old, very cool. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked out of my hostel this morning! Very, very pretty city. I got some breakfast and headed into the ancient roman baths museum, exhibition thing. It was really cool, interesting, all of the above. Learned about how they made the baths and how they used to use them, very cool. The ground level was further down than the city, and I was standing in an area that was built over 2000 years ago!
After that I had my lunch in this sqaure,
and then wandered around the town and just marveled in how amazing it all was! I feel like I've taken a step back in time!
I went to dinner at DeMuths, a vegetarian restaurant, a super fancy, pretentious vegetarian restaurant! My meal was suuuuper expensive and tiny, but very good. Wouldn't go back though unless I was at dinner with like, a vegetarian celebrity or something! It's all good. I then went to the Thermae Spa Baths, which uses the water from the hot springs. It was super expensive, but I wanted a relaxing evening, and that's exactly what I got. There were 2 different pools, one being on the roof top so that was cool, and there was a spa room with 4 different steam rooms, all smelling like different things: Jasmine, lavender, eculyptus, and mint. Very yummy, sweaty, relaxing. The room has little foot baths in it and a bit, elegant rain shower thing in the middle. I loved it! Felt a little awkward at times just being there by myself, but I've learned not to care! I enjoyed myself anyways. Now I'm waiting to hear back from Dan, who lives in Winchester who I met in Revelstoke, so we can meet up for drinks tomorrow night in Salisbury! Life is goooood
