Europe Trip Update Part 14: Alone in Cotswold, Stratford -upon-Avon and Broadway

Yup, I'm on leave today.....my Office decided to close for Merdeka, how awesome it is? Haha...so now I have time to write my blog hehe...

So after a great English breakfast, it is time to go out again. The morning weather looks promising. So plan for today to go to Mickleton but it looks like I have to cancel because the bus is seldom going there and after chat with Margaret, she said that Stratford-upon-Avon is very nice place so I decided to go there. It is the birthThen place of  William Shakespeare, the famous author which I never read the play or the book. I just watch Hamlet, I think the Mel Gibson version and it is exhausted.to watch.  From the bus schedule, it seems that I can only spend an hour there because I need to go Broadway and Chipping Camden.

So, when I reached Stratford,(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratford-upon-Avon)  it is raining, after an hour journey is raining but still light. So , I manage to walk around there. It is a cute little town and the have old pub from 16th century and horror museum which I'm not able to join because of the time limit. To go inside the Shakespeare house and his wife's Anne Hathaway cottage is totally free and I think if I have time, I will certainly go there.

Then I saw this quite Peter & Rabbit shop and remember my niece and another baby coming coming up ( I got another niece by the way) so decided to in and buy something for them. After that need to go to bus stop already as I need to go to Chipping Camden.

While in the bus, it is raining so I decided not to stop in Chipping Camden and it looks that there is nothing new there. Then arrived at Broadway and I'm already hungry. So went to Prego Restaurant because they offered vegetarian pizza there. I tried to look for other restaurant but I'm still not sure so Prego it is. The price is not cheap, let just say that, but I'm just cold and hungry, so be it.

Well, I have almost 3 hours there and then just walking around there to find house no. 6, Broadway Road. This house is part of my Europe motivation wallpaper and I just fell in love with it and that is the reason I want to go here. I also put the photo in my previous post, you can see it here: http://whatever-lahno.blogspot.com/2012/12/update-on-project-europe.html

So, there it was, the house with the wisteria branch in front of it. One of the most beautiful house I've ever seen, and I manage to get somebody to take my photo in front of it. So, it use to be my wallpaper, now I am in my wallpaper. So as I got so many hours here and it is raining so I went to shop around and manage to get some of Cath Kidston stuff for my friends. After two hours in the same shop so it is time for me to go out. I just hang at one of the bench and it is started to rain badly and it is super cold, so again , went inside the Prego Restaurant to get hot coffee.

Then the bus arrived and it took me back to Moreton-in-March. After walking half way, I realized I forgot to bring the plastic bags with my niece items inside it and when back to the bus and it wasn't there. Perhaps I left it in Prego Restaurant so I tweet on the their twitter wall, and the manager replied that it was there. I just so crush because it also has this small version of "Hungry Caterpillar" book which I specially bought for her. I just have to deal with it and buy something for her in London. Although, I was crushed but what to do? Redha ajalah....

So tomorrow, I will be go back to London and meeting my boyfriend Harry? I got photo with him...Don't believe me? Just wait for the update soon...........
