We flew back from Turkey into the rain and cold of England…upon arriving in Bristol we realised we had touched down in the middle of flooding! However, that didn’t stop us from having a great time with Reuben’s friends Ally and Paul and their daughter Charis. We spent a day exploring Bristol, and in amongst dashing through the raindrops we went to The New Room, the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world.
We also visited the Clifton Suspension Bridge and walked across it through the wind and the rain- this was a challenge but worth it.
After that, we were ready to be inside, so headed to explore the S.S Great Britain. This ship was really cool – we were able to explore the dry dock, learn about the history of the boat, dress up in period clothes, and wander through the incredibly authentic recreation on board the ship (right down to the smells of baking bread, horses on board and vomit…could have done without that last one!)
