Photo of the Week: Bath, England

Looking down on the Roman Baths

I spent a good part of last weekend watching movies based on Austen novels (“Sense & Sensibility”, “Northanger Abbey”) and just general Austen-ophilia (“Lost in Austen”).  My falling down the Austen rabbit hole, of course, made me think of Bath, a frequent setting in Austen’s writing (not to mention her own home for a great part of her life).  Back in 2006, when I was working out of my firm’s London office, I obviously made time for a weekend day trip out to Bath so that I could see it for myself.  Between visiting the baths, the Royal Crescent, and the Jane Austen Centre, I was in Austen heaven.  In fact, I barely finished up sightseeing in time to catch the last bus back to London.  Still, as someone who has read every one of Austen’s books, it was an awesome trip–100% worth taking.
