To Be or Not To Be - A Day in Stratford-Upon-Avon

To be or not to be, hear-in lies the question we explored today upon Avon.

We began out journey exploring the quaint little town, with its pretty little shops.  Whilst  there, our first stop was the birthplace of Shakespeare, and the the home where he grew up.  We viewed his how and what his lifestyle was like.

We broke our journey at Benson's, famous for their traditional afternoon tea.  Our group feasted on finger sandwiches, scones, and of course, creme tea.

We continued along our Shakespeare tour, visiting two other houses that resembled that of Shakespeare's time.

Finally, we visited the Holy Trinity Church, which dates back to 1210.  William Shakespeare and his wife Anne are buried here, along with other family members.

We as a group picked Stratford de to the fact that, individually, eveyone one of use enjoys poetry and wanted to know where Shakespeare was born and raised.  Learning about someone so significant and finding out where and how he was brought up was simply poetic.

"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." - William Shakespeare.
