We got up in the mid-day and made our way to the train station. We were heading to Canterbury, famous for its tales of King Arthur and his nights. We made it to the city in just under two hours and had plenty of time to find our hostel. It was a very nice place with friendly staff and great facilities. With our bags dropped off we made our way into the center of town. On the way we ran across the old castle wall that still partially surrounds the city. We wandered around that for a bit before heading into town and toward the large church at the center. I was under the impression that the church housed the "remains" of King Arthur. However, Christ Church does not hold such treasures. It does however give a detailed history of the town as well as the knights that protected its walls. It was actually really cool to be in the streets where the hooves of armor clad horses ridden by knights clicked and clacked hundreds of years earlier. After wandering through the streets we made our way back to the hostel and decided to check out the movie area. We were relieved to see movies from back home and since Seb had never seen Forrest Gump, we decided to relax in and watch a good old American classic. Cheers.
