How DON'T start a travel.

At the beginning, in the starting droop of the earlier stop of the travel, I was sure that I could label this few weeks as FAILURE but then, thinking about what i did and the people I met I can say that I made a lot of stuff and met a lot of people.
I think anyway that I should made a short list of tips for a general travel.

1 - Money:
The low-cost travel gurus will say that money are not really usefull for travel.
Well.I don't know wich experience they made but this cannot be said in a universal way.I mean.i was in England,one of themost expensive country of the world but I'm sure that even in other places you need a basilar budget.
I mean.i didn't left with zero money but I didn't considered any kind of extra emergency or similar.This costed me the untimely return to home.

2 - Essentiality:
This seems like foregone but I made this weeks with a really huge backpack and trast me, is difficult and useless sojust try to bring with you only what you really need.

3 - Planning:
You can always say that is better live the adventure but I'm pretty sure that a minimum of previous planning is ALWAYS a must. But i think that's me.I like to plan everithing. i don't like to follow the lucky.

Here we are.Hope this could be usefull for someone for a travel longer than mine

Bath - The roman city

The enter forthe baths
Bath, little town into the somerset is famouse for the only natural baths in the united kingdom.

Builded by Vespasiano, Then the romans fighted against Saxons that won but left the structures get spoilde because they didn't used but in recent times they were rebuilted and titled to the king and the queen.
Cathedral and buskers

Little digression about the multi-etnicity of England
In my path forbath I passed a town called Edington but the original name was Etahndun because at the beginning was a viking city but them losted against Saxons and then they was confined in other zones of UK.

In the united kingdom is possible to see the beauty of 3 principal cultures that walked on him however Saxons was able to defend their own native country against enemy with and hig lever of war knowledge.

But we should come back to bath:
One of the stuff that more surprised me about the city is the sport face.

Common sport
I think this is the only city where Rugby is more important than football

The tramp laws

The sum of the catastrophism
When in the same sentence there are rusks and cats is easy to think about perpetual motion that rewrited the phisic. The buttered cat engine of Murphy & Co.
However sometimes we can find this unlucky catastrophic structur even in fields that are not stictly connected with the daily life.
I think is possible to adapt this kind of structure to the travels.
This laws will be based of personal experiences of me and you that have the courage and the time to follow this madness.
Whoever had some kind of strange experience can contact me to organize this amazing document and everithing willbe published on here.

Law nr. 1: [Well know as law of the safe shelter] - The tramp
If you are sheltered and the weather is uncertain but you can choose to stay there or just pickup the then (that is quite better for a traveller) you can be sure that, if you choose to move, the uncertainty of the weather will drive to the worse.

Stonehenge and the summer solstice

First time I saw Stonehenge.
While ancient times mankind watched at the sky with awe noting the magic that night after night and season after season happened in the star dominium.

With the science progress and the technology evolution we arrived to understand that magic was nothing and that everything is part of a perfect mechanism, However the history bring to us part of the wonder ever builted from mankind (...and maybe with some h-h-help, but is not this the place to speak about that). Oneof these is Stonehnege.

The astronomical solstice:
21st June the Sun reach the higher declination or rather the maximum high respect the equatorial parallel. Is the longer day of the year in our hemisphere.

Now. The Sun is stopped for 3 days, Just the time for the planet to invert the orbit momentum and then go to the winter again.

How is gonna work the night of the solstice in Stonehenge?:
Substantially the event is just one night stand from the 20th evening to 21st morning. During the night is a big party. There is people who dance inside the stone circle, there is druids that make... stuff and around 4 am gonna start some kind of blessing cerimonials (if you believe in that).
Then is gonna start the sunrise and then everyone to home.

The first sunrise after the solstice
Now. I liked the cerimonial part and the few ours later but I really hated the way people left the site in themorning. Like a landfill.

After i started the travel trough Bath when i suppose to arrive in few days

United kingdom [2015] - The travel

And here we are to leave for this big adventure around the world. I decided to start from the United kingdom because is the country where actually I live and is amazing so I absolutely want to visit that.

The starting idea was to do that by bike but I didn't had time for training myself so I'll do by walk.

General itinerary:
The travel will start on 21st of June in Stonehenge than I'll basically walk in clockwise around the Island: Bristol -> Galles -> North UK -> Scozia and in hte other side touching the most important places of the country.

I'll not do the northern Ireland cause the time is not so much and this si my first travel so I prefer to simplified that more possible.

So, what say more?: «If you loveme,follow me»
