I'm Moving To Bath!
So on the 19th of September, I packed the majority of my things into my car and drove the two hours up to my new home, the gorgeous city of Bath! Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage site nestled in the valley of the River Avon, in Somerset, about 30 minutes drive from Bristol. It's such a beautiful small city, surrounded by the gorgeous British countryside.
Bath is going to be my home for the next four years, and as many people have told me, it's one of those places that once you've lived there, it's hard to leave. It may be a small city, and kind of in the middle of nowhere, but it leaves a lasting impression on you - the cotswold coloured stone, the rolling green hills and the cold, crisp air.
I'm one of those people that can't stay inside for too long; I want to get outside and go exploring, and Bath is the perfect place for it. The university and where I'm living, is located on top of a hill overlooking the city which is down in the valley. Whenever I get the chance, say I have an afternoon of, or I just feel like I need to get out my room, I hope on the bus and take the short 10-minute ride down into town. The view as we descend the hill may be one of my favourites, and every time I see it, I genuinely say out-loud, 'wow'.
Bath, while small, has so much going on. It has every type of shop that you need, including all my favourite high street stores and some designers stores too. The nightclubs are small and all underground, but that really doesn't bother me. There are so many wonderful places that I'm keen to eat or drink at, and every time I go out I see somewhere new that I want to try. Bath is the perfect size city, not too big that you feel tiny, but also not too small so that you know everyone.
Bath is well-known for being a cultured city. The Royal Crescent is a beautifully renowned area up at the top of town, and also one of the most photogenic spots. The Roman Baths and the Cathedral are also icons of Bath.
I'm so happy that I've come here for university, I can't imagine anywhere much nicer. While the actual University isn't the prettiest campus, the city certainly makes up for it, and I can't really imagine ever being fed up with this beautiful city!
