One of the things that I was most looking forward to in our early days in England was to visit Stonehenge. I had studied it in school, heard so much about it and had many people tell me to visit it while there. We made sure to get there first thing in the morning to try and beat the crowds and we were successful in that so we quickly got our tickets and caught a ride out to the henge.
My parents and I enjoyed walking around and Stonehenge was everything I thought it would be. Once we finished our tour and exploring we headed back to the visitor center which I was also quite excited to explore because it was fairly new and I had read a lot about it on several design websites (The Arch Daily)and a few architectural magazines. After all of that hype I must admit I was a bit underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, it was a handsome building, but just not quite what I expected.
Uffington White Horse and is believe to have been created in 800 BC - AD 100. It was on this hill while enjoying the beauty and wonderful weather that I had my moment where I searched for Mr. Darcy. As I was walking with my hair and the grass blowing in the wind I looked for him and looked, but after all that searching he never showed up.
