“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

It always amazes me how tough the first day of a tour is. You’re exhausted from the flight, you don’t have enough mental bandwidth for what you are seeing and doing. You fall asleep continually as soon as you are on the bus (at least in my case).

And yet, you’re seeing a don doing thing you may never get to again. We enjoyed bath – both for the site of the Roman bathing house (and the tea we enjoyed there, will live music of course!) and for the beautiful little town of shops and eateries.

And then after a scenic (though I slept through most of it) bus ride we arrived in Cardiff. A quick stop to the hotel rooms to unpack and freshen up and we were off to Pierre’s for dinner. A great day filled laughter and exploration.
