The Roman Baths in Bath, England

 

Bath, EnglandBath, EnglandAfter visiting Stonehenge, there was one more must-see landmark I wanted to see in England before flying back to Canada–Bath. Although I couldn’t see everything in England, after London, I knew I wanted to make it to Stonehenge and Bath.
