Ruins...

Recommended Posts

I love ruins!

I loved the Roman Baths in Bath, England and I loved Stonehenge.

The UK is great for historical ruins.  Although at the end of 3 months, I was getting a bit ruined-out.

Nice pix. 

Yes, I recall Bath.

Stokesay has to be one of the nicest settings. Shropshire...Sort of like I imagined the Shire to be like.

This one was also impressive...even if a bit reconstructed in most places. But getting there was like those hills in White Rock...all the way up. In Cumbria.

I used to walk up and down Oxford Street instead of going to the gym...

Now imagine several miles of that.

I recall going-up in my uncle's Austin Mini...ideal for the job. But the place did reek of Rome...if you follow. Great view, too. I suppose that being the point of the fort.

That pool appears to be needing some draining and cleaning before it gets "ruin"ed forever. I hoped that they used chlorine in those days. :lol:

The best ruins for me to have visited in my lifetime were the ones that I saw in Rome and Turkey. Our guide told us that we were now walking down the streets of Rome and Turkey where Cleopatra and Caesar and some of those vicious emperors once walked. I found the Coliseum in Rome and the ruins at Emphasis in Turkey to be very interesting and my favorites.

I got to see where Cleopatra and Mark Anthony spent their wedding night at Emphasis. I would not stay there though. No TV. :D  Europe is full of history and ruins and I was glad to see some of them and maybe even more on my next British/European cruise together. :)
