I took off on a field trip of sorts with the international student group on Saturday! I hopped on the bus in front of Store 21 and enjoyed the scenery all the way to the Big Pit Coal Museum. I had expected a sort of tourist-y type attraction, but they actually put real gear on us and took us down the mine shaft!
The elevator that took us down the mine! No batteries of any kind allowed, except the ones on our helmet flashlights, so no pictures from below.
On our way back from the museum, we stopped at the famous book town, Hay-on-Wye! (AKA my whole reason for going on the trip.) There were beautiful castle ruins, but I made a beeline for the bookshops. Unfortunately, we weren’t there for long, so I only had time to browse through a few. I would so gladly go back again!
I did, however, splurge on this! I can’t wait to get it matted and framed and hanging in my apartment!
