Excited to Start Jane Austen Tour 2
It was so familiar to arrive back at the Macdonald Spa Hotel in Bath for the start of the Whitecroft Jane Austen Tour Number Two. It is eighteen months since I was here but now it seems like yesterday.
It was so wonderful to meet up with Helen Bertram and Jane Tapley again for the welcome afternoon tea for guests on the tour. Here we are!
So wonderful to meet up with friends who have been travelling Europe prior to our tour and meet new friends in person.
Some paperwork to do over afternoon tea.
A fascinating talk by Jane about the Austen family and an introduction to what we will see on our tour.
A lovely dinner in the Admiralty Room where Winston Churchill met with commanders of the navy during the war!
Then off to bed for some much needed sleep. Comfy room.
Tomorrow we have a walking tour of beautiful Bath and a private visit to the Fashion Museum.
