1: and so the journey begins...
2: The people that I met on this trip completely changed my life. I have never met such wonderful people before who have meant so much to me. | Our group in Liverpool
3: Liverpool May 21, 2011 | Liverpool was a diverse town that we made many a trips to for it's great shopping venues. Going to Liverpool I learned more history about the town, rather than just knowing the Beatles originated there. Seeing the old church that was bombed out during a war was highly intriguing, and the Liverpool Cathedral gave other amazing churches quite the competition. | Liverpool Cathedral
5: Lake District | May 22, 2011 | The Lake District was a gorgeous area of England. It provided a rural atmosphere with historic sights such as of that of poet and writer William Wordsworth. Seeing the history behind Dove Cottage in Grasmere was awe striking being in a place where he wrote his most famous works.
6: York | May 26, 2011 | York Minster Cathedral | York Wall | York has some of the oldest architecture that we were able to view in England. Seeing the walls and turrets that protected the city many years ago was highly impressive.

12: Chester June 1, 2011 | Chester Cathedral | Old Arch | New Arch
13: Old Roman Wall | KNowing that chester was an old roman city made all of the history that much more interesting. Seeing the architecture in the cathedral and web painting was magnificent. The old Roman Ampitheatre, however, was not as impressive.
14: Ormskirk | St. Peter and St. Paul | the church of Henry VIII | One of three churches in England with a tower and steeple
16: Wales June 4, 2011 | Conwy Castle | Beaumaris Castle
17: Wales would be a place I could see myself retiring to. It had so much history and we were provided with such a beautiful day to experience it. The castles were beautiful.
18: Haworth June 8, 2011 | I was very excited to see where the Bronte sisters wrote because Jane Eyre is one of my favorite works. The streets and sights of West Yorkshire are breathtaking, especially those of the Moors (that is until they break your fibula).
