August 22, 2005
Yesterday my friends and I went to Warwick Castle. We were lucky that the weather was so good. It was sunny all day so it was very perfect for our day out.
Warwick Castle is a medieval castle. It was built in 1086 (almost a thousand years now). We went there by Stage coach no. X1 which runs only during summer time.
After buying each person a ticket, we went inside the castle ground. There were so many activities and shows happening around the castle. We decided to see some shows first for the morning and we went into the castle in the afternoon. Warwcik Castle had many towers so we went up there to see the scenery. I climbed endless spiral staircases. It was fun although it was also very tiring. The stairs were so narrow and dark. Can't imagine how people in those days climb these stairs. I expect that they should have a bigger figure than us Thai people who are smaller built. Anyway, everybody was so interested to climb up and experience for ourselves at the top of the towers.
Then we went down to the ground and went down the dungeon to see all the things they had to show us. We saw people producing weapons preparing for war, their daily living, etc. After that we went to see some more rooms inside the castle. By this time we were already so tired although there're so many places left to be seen. We decided to go to Victorian rose garden for our last place and then came back outside. I needed to catch a bus back to my accommodation before there was no bus. So I boarded a bus at 5.05. This was my first journey alone on the bus in England. I was a little bit nervous but the driver was helpful. He told me when we reached the bus stop I had to get off. So I arrived back safely, very tiring but also very enjoy my day out in such a sunny day.
