All Aboard the Big Green Bus

When it comes to megalithic mystical circles and really old things made of stones, Britain’s Wiltshire countryside scores big on several fronts, including Stonehenge and the Iron Age earthworks and Norman castle ruins at Old Sarum. A great way to experience these iconic Wiltshire locations is with the guided Stonehenge Tour excursion operated by Salisbury Reds. Comfortable, modern tour coaches allow hop-on, hop-off journeys from Salisbury’s city center to Old Sarum and Stonehenge, where you can disembark and explore at your leisure. Tour commentary en route is provided in English and nine other languages, allowing you to gaze out the window of the coach to enjoy the landscape along the way while learning a bit about these historic sites and the mysterious circular “henge” of standing stones that’s become recognizable around the world.

Afterwards, disembark at Old Sarum. Besides the Iron Age settlers who built it, Old Sarum has been occupied in turn by Roman, Saxon and Norman communities. Once a thriving city with its own royal palace and castle, it was eventually abandoned, and a new town — present-day Salisbury — was built on the river, becoming the new urban nexus, complete with a magnificent cathedral. After Old Sarum, climb back aboard and head back to Salisbury to tour the towering cathedral with its stunning glasswork and stone interior. Several pick-up sites in Salisbury include the train station, and you’re unlikely to miss the double-decker, grassy green-colored buses with their friendly drivers. A single all-inclusive ticket includes the tour, priority entrance to Stonehenge and the visitor center and entrance to Salisbury Cathedral. These world-famous sites are managed by English Heritage, which oversees the care for more than 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites.

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.

Conrad Washington D.C. Review

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: We drove from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., without a hitch in early October. In communication with the Conrad staff, I was directed to the CityCenter Garage, where I could park and recharge my car. It was right around the corner and convenient; from the garage it is a short walk to the front of the hotel. Check-in took place on the ground floor versus the lobby to reduce touch points during COVID-19. The staff politely greeted us and gave us our keys; I was in room 1027. From the ground floor we took the elevator to the lobby level and transferred to the elevator bank to the rooms.
