Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Bath

Bath has been somewhere I have wanted to go since the time I first discovered it while doing my undergrad degree. As we were going South to visit my oldest friend Storme in Bournemouth, we decided to do a Westerly detour to Bath. It was known as Aquae Sulis under the Romans (nearly 2000 years ago) and as the name may suggest, it is famous for its thermal springs which supply the town with beautiful warm water. We spent an amazing (and wet) time exploring this beautiful city. Most buildings in Bath are made from the local, golden-coloured Bath Stone which gives the town a lovely glow and uniformity that makes it seem like it has just stepped out of the 18th Century. We even splurged and when to the super fancy modern Bath Spa which has four levels of natural springs and a rooftop pool overlooking the town and Abbey. Unfortunately we werent allowed to carry in cameras so we got no pictures inside. Bath was probably our favourite place that we visited in our time in England and I hope our pictures do this picturesque town some justice.

Waiting for the (very expensive) train to Bath.

Our first glimpse of the Norman cathedral and the Roman baths.Its weird to think people have been walking along this road for more than 2000 years and this definitely lent our whole time in bath a beautiful historical weight.

The goddess the town was once named after, Sulis

The stinky water from the hotsprings stains the rocks a sulphorous orange colour. Despite the weird colour and smell, the water is believed to have healing properties and can be drunk for all sort of ailments from gout to infertility.

The water, although smelling a tad eggy from the sulphur was beautifully warm. I can see why people living in cold old England would be keen to strip off and jump in these hot springs!

The main Roman pool where all the posh Roman men used to swim.

Gratuitous food shot, maybe. But finding vegan sausage rolls was no small feat and made both us and our tummies very happy!

The Bath Abbey was enormous! Its hard to imagine that people have been worshipping here since the 7th Century and this is the place that virtually all kings and queens of England have been crowned from the first king of England, King Edgar (yeah we hadnt heard of him either) to Elizabeth II.

It was really bizarre walking around the Bath cathedral and literally walking over people that had been buried there :/

In addition to the quirky uniformity of the golden coloured Bath stone, Bath has another quirky feature, a number of apartments and house built in a semi-circular shape.

The Royal Crescent is the most famous of these semi-circular buildings which over looks a gorgeous park and botanic gardens.

  • Post ceremony hangouts.
  • From that insane backlight, you would never guess it bucketed down until 5 minutes before Kerry and Shane’s ceremony.
  • Kerry and Shane. Just a classic portrait. What you can’t see are the swarms of ants crawling up their feet and the tons of flies buzzing around their heads. Unexpected stories are the most fun, and the ones you always remember.
  • Some just married goodness 🔥
  • This love is 🔥
  • On Tuesday we got to witness Elaine and George say their “hell yeahs” to each other in the most magical stone cathedral in the Highlands outside of Sydney.
  • After 3 weeks of pretty much being camera free, we decided to get our eye back into it so we set ourselves a little challenge : weird portraits of each other shot only with our iPhones, in hard light with the crowds at the Sydney opera house and edited only with our phones. And it was so damn fun!
  • Have these two faces: A - just woken from a nap. B - just smoked a fatty. C - just had a massage on the beach. This is probably the quietest we’ve  been on IG since we joined it many moons ago. I fluctuate between feeling like our business is going to fall apart without giving it my constant attention, and relishing in being disconnected for a bit... All I know is we needed the rest 🙌🏽
  • When that first kiss literally sweeps you off your feet 💜
  • About 5 minutes into Carli and Karel’s ceremony it started raining pretty hard, but it cleared up just in time for the official being married bits 🙌🏽
  • Rosie and Deane, being all sexy and in love. Also, I am still beyond in love with her @sadiebosworthatelier dress 😱
  • Carli and Karel and some cool ass glass building lines ☺️

  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
