Journal Entry:
First stop was Wells Cathedral. An amazingly beautiful cathedral that dates back to the 1100's. There is a clock inside the cathedral that was built in 1390 and is incredibly intricate and beautiful.

Next stop was Chepstow Castle in Wales. This is the ruins (basically just the shell) of Brittan's first stone castle. It sits on a 40 meter clif above a river. It was very scenic.

Next was the ruins of Tintern Abbey. This was particularly pleasing with the changing leaves as a backdrop.

Once again we arrived at our final destination in the dark (actually many hours into the dark as our bus driver got lost three times).
