Walking down the memory lane - Bath, UK

The beautiful 18th century Pulteney Bridge over River Avon

Bath is one of the most wonderful city that I had ever lived in my life. Home to great writers such as Jane Austen and Charles Dicken, living in Bath can be very inspiring.  My good old days were spent walking miles and miles along river Avon and sitting by the river banks on a cold autumn day was simply mesmerizing. 
Shops on Pultney Bridge

The shops on Pulteney bridge reminds me of the iconic Ponte Vechio in Florence, Italy but the one in Bath is much smaller. Perhaps the resemblance came from the Roman who conquered Bath in the 9th. century.

The entire city of Bath was inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 due to it international cultural significance. Jane Austen, her parents and sister, Cassandra lived in Bath from 1801 to 1806 and despite that she disliked the city, Bath has honoured her name with Jane Austen Centre and a city walk. Bath with its beautiful architecture has been the backdrop of many films and television programmes.
