Remember when I told you last month about another Neolithic stone circle in England that wasn’t Stonehenge? Well, that same weekend we ventured onwards into Wales. The total drive from London to Chepstow, which is just over the England-Wales border, is just under three hours. In the U.S., we’d regularly drive from three hours from our home to visit friends and relatives in neighboring cities, and here in England, three hours will take us clear across the country to another one.
Chepstow is a quaint little village town. It’s the kind of town you’d imagine in a sleepy romantic comedy where the heroine retreats from her busy city life and career, only to discover quirky town characters and a rough-and-rugged single guy who at first finds her shrill and high maintenance but eventually falls for her anyway. You know this plot that I’m talking about, right?
