|a younger me and a younger Jill|
This is me and my friend Jill at Tintern Abbey in Wales, in our somewhat younger days. Crumbs if I could just be that thin again:=) I guess it helped that we were walking over hill and down dale on 10 mile walks in the British countryside. Come rain, hail or shine, as the saying goes. We were doing the backpacking thing with our fellas (now husbands) all over Europe and Britain.
Tintern Abbey is a glorious ruin in the Wye Valley, originally founded by monks in the year 1131. It has inspired artists like Turner and poets like Wordsworth. Apparently British children have been reciting his poem ever since. Tintern Village has their own website (enterprising), which you can peruse and get a few more images of the Abbey.
(Oh, the walls are not blue by the way. For some reason, the scanner turned them into a lovely azure shade).
I am joining in again with Fiona from Tiffin Bite Sized Food Adventures on her regular travel link-up. This month's letter is J. Yep I know, I am reaching a bit here using my mate Jill for my J but Fiona does say to be lateral if you need to be :=) Join in too with your travel adventures.
