Recently I got the chance to visit Statford-upon-Avon, which is William Shakespeare's birth place! To say the least, the area was gorgeous! It was a rainy day but even so the flowers and streets were amazing. It all felt very cosy and quaint.
My tour of Shakespeare's childhood house was a bit more rushed than I would have liked but the courtyard area was fantastic and was so colorful!
It was weird for me to think about Shakespeare as a child when we normally refer to him as a successful, famous playwright. I felt the same way when I went to the Charles Dickens' Museum.
Both visits make me think about my baby nephew, Jack, and all the possibilities he has in front of him. It even makes me look at myself. Who knows where I will be when I am 40? What I will have accomplished by then!
