Age: estimated at 3100 BC
Type of stone: Bluestone, Sarson, Welsh Sandstone
Worship: Lunar, Solar
Note: Except on special or arranged occasions, visitors are unable to walk amongst the stones

The best time to visit Stonehenge is early… at opening time before all the tourist buses arrive… and even better during winter… when not many are game enough to venture out too early in the morning… we found Sunday morning just on opening time 9.30am was just perfect on our last visit… it happened to be early July and we were enroute to Bath with family visiting from Australia.  We packed a breakfast snack pork sausages, baguet, tomato sauce (of course) and a thermos of coffee – no waiting in queues for refreshments – we have our own thanks – and ready to eat now.

After our Stonehenge visit we continued our journey on towards Glastonbury…. more to show and tell in next up and coming post….  ciao!

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
