Bess' Travel Diaries: England + Wales, Part 3


Dear Diary,
I’ve arrived in Didcot, England at long last.  I’m staying in a cozy little B&B that, alas, doesn’t believe in the necessity of locks on a guest’s room door.  Hey, I can improvise: I prop a chair in front of my door each night…a girl traveling alone can’t be too careful...

B&B {above & below}

East Hagbourne - a sort of medieval hamlet a stroll down the road from my B&B 

quaint thatched roof

a very British scarecrow indeed

hollyhocks in bloom

a path I took

an old church

it may seem odd, but I love exploring a graveyard...

so much history + they make you think

ivy & stone

a shadowy path that I traversed, but quickly ran back from...very muddy & slightly creepy

a lush golden field in Didcot

sea of grass =)

More images of East Hagbourne...

It was from Didcot that I traveled to London {about a 45 minute train ride depending on the number of stops}.  Here's a vid of the train journey I took more than once leaving London's Paddington Station back to my B&B in Didcot.  Ah, I remember it well...

P.S.: It's a long video, so just take a mere peek!

Love & Adventure,


  1. Awww! How fun! I love all the pictures, Bess.

    Love you,

  2. Love it! Sounds fun!
    Hope you are having a great week!
