The Royal Shakespeare Company Theater lies in an enviable position on the banks of the River Avon. From the riverside terrace, visitors may watch pleasure boats pass, or glimpse the Tower of the Holy Trinity Church, the site of Shakespeare’s baptism + his final resting place.

Towns in England have the most peculiar names, won’t you agree? Some like Stratford-Upon-Avon, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne + Stoke-On-Trent, gives tribute to the bodies of water nearby. Another classic example is Kingston-Upon-Thames which was aptly named for its proximity to the River Thames. I am sure there are  loads of other interesting stuffs to discover in the UK apart from the very peculiar town names: the lovely estates + manors, the warm people, the unbelievably uncluttered streets, which are just peppered with pedestrians walking about, bystanders or bikers clad in their colorful scorpion helmets.

This card was sent to me by fellow Postcrossing Enthusiasts member, Krissa, who blogs about her postcard collection at Connections to the World, who was in the UK recently. The UK is one of the places I would love to visit with my little man someday. Some of the things I’d like to check out include The Wembley Stadium, Westminster Abbey, as well as the numerous castles + museums. If I could, I would also love to check out the 2012 Summer Olympics that will open real soon in London!

Thank you Krissa for sharing your UK adventure with me through this card! 🙂
