Germany, Italy and Britain Extravaganza travel blog


So we are on the tour bus of London, go past Trafalgar square and what do we see? Alberta tourism giving a free concert to celebrate Canada day! HUge stage, video screens, east cost musicians, bison burgers... all the fixings of a typical Canada day.

We spent our day going to Burnham-on-sea... a very very small town on the Irish sea... very silty water and not much to do, but what a relief from the hectic pace of Rome and Italy. After getting settled in the best bandb we have ever been to (Magnolia HOuse) we took a stroll along the beach and found a pub with nicely priced (and good food) to eat. Afterwards we wandered through the town and ended up back in our hotel where I introduced everyone to the series of Fawlty Towers (figured it was fitting). The next day we got up and after getting advise from the b&b owners, rented a car and headed up the coast for Rachel and Aimsley to go horse back riding on the beach... a dream of both the girls. Since they are both experienced riders they got to spend a fair amount of time trotting along the beach. They both said it was the highlight of their trip (I guess a couple of stinky horses beats the vatican... who knew).

Afterwards we headed down the highway to a town called Glastonbury that has a famous Abbey and lots of connections with King Arthur and such. Lots of new age funky shops and such to see. Then we headed to the cathedral in Wells... pretty beautiful and amazing. The legends say that Jesus visited Glastonbury (I am trying to imagine that... but okay).

We then headed back to Burnham on Sea and went to dinner then had a wonderful rest in our hotel. The next morning we got up and had breakfast then headed to the train station. Our B&B owner was so cool he ended up at the station to return William's shaver to him.
