Best Day Trip Ever

So on wednesdays we go on day trips! Which means we leave the centre at the ungodly hour of 7 AM, board the coach, and take off into the English countryside in search of cathedrals, WWI sites, or in yesterdays case, JANE AUSTEN FILM-SET SITES.

Remember this scene from Pride and Prejudice starring Kiera Knightely?
It's the one where Mr. Darcy is proposing to Elizabeth Bennett for the first time.. but her prejudice causes her to refuse him?

Well, WE WENT THERE! To the exact. same. spot.
and I had a little proposal scene of my own. Thanks to my director's 15 year old son.

Natalie, me, Meegan, Olivia, Jordan, Becca

Remember when Kiera Knightley ran across this bridge in the rain after reading Darcy's letter?

Yep, same bridge!

Then we went to Bath.
Which was basically the party capital of the late 18th century. Think Spring Break in Miami, but Jane Austen-style... Corsets required.

Jordan, Kenz, Morgs, me and Molly waiting to get asked to dance in one of the upper ballrooms...

First time trying English PASTIES in Bath (they aren't very good haha)
Andrew, Molly, Jordan, Me, and Ben

We loved Bath so much, that we're planning on going back! It is the CUTEST town ever and we're going to watch a Rugby game there!
