Bristol - Wolverhampton
Updated: Apr 27
The plan for today was to get up early and head into the center of Bristol to walk around and find Banksy artwork. We managed the first part fine and got up at seven to catch up on some admin work from the night before.
We headed into Bristol after a quick breakfast and some advice on directions. We tried our best to find some original Banksy murals but without much success. It was much harder to navigate around our 'art tour' route without the help of Google Maps than we had first thought. That didn't stop us enjoying our time there though, we were reminded that some of the best things happen when you get lost. We only ended up seeing one Banksy, but we did find a camera shop to buy some film for our 35mm cameras.
After that it was time for lunch. We witnessed a daylight robbery of several bottles of Chardonnay from a Tesco Metro on our way in to buy a couple of meal deals.
We loved the drive through the Wye Valley on the border of Wales on our way up to Wolverhamton and we were well on our way until we got a phone call informing us that Ian had left his laptop at our previous stop. Doh. We had to drive all the way back to Bristol to pick it up, but who cares it meant we got to drive through the valley again and back past the beautiful Tintern Abbey.
We arrived in Wolverhampton after dark and we're now both sitting in our beds, charging all the batteries and getting ready for an early night before a morning of mountain biking in Cannock.
