Stonehenge

It was unbelievable.

I went to Stonehenge in 2014, it was a stop over on our way to Bath. We left just as the sun came up and I took this at the start of our journey:DSC_0741.JPG

During the entire trip, we only had one CD which we listened to on repeat and these were the songs on it which I remember (my friend and I love Lana del Rey):

  1. Summertime sadness by Lana Del Rey
  2. Black Beauty by Lana Del Rey
  3. Blue Jeans by Lana Del Rey
  4. Wicked Games cover by Gemma Hayes
  5. An arabic song I can’t remember

Safe to say I have the above songs memorised. We were dancing away on the journey, even when we were sick of the songs, the dancing continued, less enthusiastically as the journey went on.

Anyway, back to Stonehenge, our excitement grew as we approached it:DSC_0750.JPG

What a sight it was:

and I was experimenting, slightly with my camera and took a photo of the landscape:

Finally the wait was over:

It was completely magnificent. There really is an air of mystery about these rocks, that have just been standing where they are for thousands of years without much erosion. There are many theories about it, such as it was a praying ground where the pagans performed their religious rituals. However, no one knows for certain what its purpose was for and how people managed to move the rocks and place them as they are. This is me pondering over the mystery:

It was freezing that day, even my handy puffy jacket was not enough. If you’re interested to read all the theories of Stonehenge, please click here

I really enjoyed my journey, oh I must not forget about the sheep:

It was most certainly one of my most favourite trips. Short but sweet. I wonder if the real reasons for the “construction” of Stonehenge will ever be uncovered. Until then, I shall remain, ever so curious.

  1. Love that place. It’s so perplexing and iconic. I love that you can see it from the road too. I’ve driven past it a few times without realising which road I was on and then, all of a sudden, there it was…

  2. That’s amazing! I love your photos. They’re beautiful. I can’t believe it was so empty! I’ll have to go there sometime… and you’ll have to go to Newgrange in Ireland!
