In that small place we found more than 5 Indian restaurants.

Some statue it was

img_20160813_163905994

When the white swan swim moving their neck this side and that it is priceless view

img_20160813_164928539

Its neither the place, nor the platinum coated ring makes you happy. Its the person beside you makes your life worth living, lawn or hot sun will be the least of your worries.

Silent, relaxing evening in the arms of The One. I am sure they would have seen lots of unbend summer and hazardous storms together. Time passed season changed but they are still together sitting beside each other, holding hands and talking. and when there is nothing to talk just listen to the each other in silence.

Shakespeare’s eternal resting place.

Then I see a Indian getting into Indian restaurant. Whats with Indian and their love for their food. They eat same dal, sabji everywhere. Country they dont give two ^&* about it.

img_20160813_200827735

When we visited this place it was still closed for the visitors.

img_20160813_201050256

img_20160813_202644396

When my journey ended I was disappointed. With heavy heart and tearful eyes I bid my farewell There were few more places I couldn’t cover up in my short one day journey. I was so much in love with the place, if it was a man I would have married right then. You ever Visit UK, make sure you stamp those clean, beautiful roads of Stratford-upon-Avon with your shoes, marking your visit

Anne(Anne Hathaway) was 26 and Peare(Shakespeare) was 18 when they got married.Nobody knows where they met but experts are guessing it might be the church(after all most of the love stories start in church). Peare was from well do family while Anne was from poor. She lived in 2 room house with her family. I am sure her poverty, her family background never mattered to Peare. I bet he bathed her every day, with poems filled with love and desire. When Anne and Shakes got married she was expecting their first child.

It was Anne’s brother who extended the house adding few rooms in the first floor. Hathaway’s are still alive and visit Cottage once in a year

I like the way the guide who said, Anne was born in a house with rooms and  died in house having 12 rooms. It clearly says time never stays the same.

And then I found the apple thief.

img_20160813_144235267

Have we no wine here?

Anne Hathaway Cottage is must visit place in UK. It’s quiet, beautiful and worth visiting.

Hall’s Croft is the place where Suzi(Susanna), daughter of Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway lived with her husband, a doctor by profession.

So what I didnt find my prince charming riding the horse at least I found the horse:). Now that is a good start for the beginners

IMG_20160813_091511134

Since the day one I heard about this place, that too years back from a dick-head friend, I wanted to visit this place. Quiet, beautiful little place you will fall in love head over heals. Its the place where The Great Shakespeare was born.

IMG_20160813_092316689

IMG_20160813_092426733

IMG_20160813_102724722

As I entered his house(obviously after issuing ticket) I closed my eyes and tried to call his spirit.

“Long lost spirit of Shakes-peeeee-r come and find a sweet resting place in me, come. I dont want to write master piece like you but I want to write a mistress piece. I call you……”There I was calling Shakes-pee-r in his own house, where he played with his brother, wrote his plays, had his breakfast ,in midst of the crazy tourists who were busy clicking pics and posing.

“Stop murdering my name, my lady!!!Its not Shakes-pee-r its Shakespeare,master the spellings, then read one of my play…..”

“Sorry for disturbing your everlasting sleep, sir, You go back to bed while I go back to mine”I hurried when for the nth time I got the same suggestion.

IMG_20160813_104104401

IMG_20160813_104201018

I am sure he wooed Anna by writing the poems filled with love and desire.

IMG_20160813_104515666

So what Juliet was bit plum, Romeo still loved her. These days where body-weight to assets are in radar, true love is nowhere to find…

His parents bed chamber, probably where he was conceived:)

IMG_20160813_111059327

Shakespeare was born in this room

IMG_20160813_111229821

IMG_20160813_111213715

I am sure He played peek-a-boo with his brother here

IMG_20160813_110946345

IMG_20160813_111237400

IMG_20160813_111244107

Definitely wine, Its the wine which brings out the writer in you.

IMG_20160813_111255425

IMG_20160813_111342063

he must have sat on this chair and wrote , with full concentration, passing gas once in a while

IMG_20160813_111447620

Naa, fish isn’t real

IMG_20160813_111450955

Storage place

IMG_20160813_112555694

As R Tagore was big admirer and buddy of Shakespeare,they honored him by creating his statue

IMG_20160813_112846704

IMG_20160813_113748912

So what I didnt meet Prince Harry or William I met a King who held my hand, kissed it gently holding his mighty sword(definitely I have to pay for him, nothing is free in this world)

Its a must visit place if you are in UK. So what you have to buy a ticket and walk in queue. Its beautiful and totally worth it

IMG_8983

IMG_8768

IMG_8767

Thirsty and tired, I was hopeful when my eyes fell on that jug of watermelon juice. Shamelessly I went and ask for a cup, after all Jesus, my buddy said you ask and you will get. I was denied i walked back smiling, I have learned to take NO, like a boss. damn, Finally I am growing

MOFE

Mofe

Carrying my weekly grocery bags like donkey I walked, while sweat tickled me here and there. At times I miss my nonexistent husband, if he would have been there he would have carried the bags while I swung my hands and legs copying Silento’s move one or two. Darn!!! What I was thinking when I said no the last guy I cursed my fate and collapsed carefully, not to break the eggs, on the empty bench.

Usual closet-sleeping hot pants, tank tops, tube tops enjoying the company of wind and merry people, long legs and bare backs were sun bathing. I looked at the kid who was standing in front of me drinking his slushy drink. His bag left carelessly on bench beside his cycle (Koi-Mil-Gaya). I eyed lustfully at his cycle for I was always crazy about it. There are still so many things which mock me silently reminding me my age. “But One day” I said silently “I am going to shut you all”. The drink long drained the kid was busy eating pie now. Without any grown up around he looked all settled and homely.

Donkey looked at the bags and shook the head to rest for some more time. Its then a ball from somewhere slowly rolled towards me. Naturally I picked it and looked up in search of the owner. There was the same kid, with the pie long reached its destination looking at me with hopeful eyes. I smiled and threw the ball at him. “How long it has been since I played?” I asked myself. (“Only three months, remember, back in Mangalore how you used to torture those poor kids with football” my inner voice was ready with an answer). I half expected the kid to throw the ball back at me and he did it with a broad smile on his face. I smiled; I was on my way of making a new friend.

We played for quite some time, diving and throwing in all possible ways. The never sleeping sports man in me was wide awake kicking his butt.

“Are you tired?” The kid asked me. Britt’s I tell you they all are considerate of all age group without exception.

“No, I am good” I said throwing the ball at him.

“Are you on your own?” I asked him, the never sleeping Miss questioner was just surfacing.

“Na, My mum went to buy grocery, I am waiting for her “ he said dropping the ball.

“So you go to school on your bike yeah?” I couldn’t take my eyes off from his cycle

“Yeah” he said picking the ball

I smiled imagining myself riding the cycle in full speed in slope, my hair flying with wind and my mouth open screaming,”yeahhhhh”.

“What is your name” I asked him, after all its decent to know the kids name who didn’t make you feel tired or lost

“Mofe” he said

“Wow” I said half expecting him to ask my name. When his silence followed my smiled deepened. That’s the precious thing about kids, they just don’t care. Your designation, job, nationality, name, age, they really don’t give two Fu*** about it.

After playing for 15 to 20 minutes I bid my farewell, the donkey all set to carry the bag and walk the undefined miles .
