Warwick Castle = EPIC! Stratford-upon-Avon = NOT SO MUCH..

2 Saturdays ago, the entire London group went on our first excursion together.I was really looking forward to it, but not the fact that I had to wake up at 7:00 in the morning and sit in a bus for 2 hours. Oh well!
The first place we went to was the Warwick Castle.

It was pretty incredible as the whole experience was sort of narrated, with lifelike wax figures and actual real dressed up medieval people intermixed. Quick question....when looking at the picture below this...If you didn't know that this guy was a wax figure, would you think he was real?? I sure did, I was kinda afraid to touch it! haha!

We were even able to walk up to the tallest part of it, and walk on top of the castle walls. The view was incredible!

One of the funniest things I saw at the Warwick Castle was this plaque... The thought of...Henry VIII and his WIVES just cracked me up!

At the end of the castle experience, we were able to watch a bird show, where this guy trained this hawk and was showing us tricks..That was pretty neat. The bird was too fast though, so I wasn't able to get a clear picture..

The second place we went was a little town called Stratford-upon-Avon. Anyone heard of it? Well, let me just inform you a bit and say that it is the birthplace of William Shakespeare! It was cool for the first 5 minutes, but then the day sort of went downhill from there.

Everything they had on Shakespeare was "supposedly" his. They didn't know for certain whether anything was touched by Shakespeare. I got quite a kick out of it.

Oh, and the best part was this archeological dig that someone started to try to find more "supposedly" Shakespeare items. Oh it was the neatest thing in the world...NOT! Take a look below! =D haha! Pretty impressive huh!

I think that deep inside me, there is a love for shakespeare, but I HAVEN'T found it yet! haha! Anyway, the end of the day finally came, and back to London we went.
