The old Abbey, so ancient and beautiful, holds a particular place in my heart as it was the place I first met some of my “online friends” and even though it was pouring with rain, the day was just magical…

There are steps that just inspire dreams of all the people who have ever walked down them…

And places of such beauty that even Angel feather lie there, waiting to be found…

 

Places of sweet beauty and silence, where my friend and I sat and sang “Amazing Grace” and listened to it echo round the dark hall before we were joined by a man and woman who sang the most gloriously haunting song in a language neither of us understood…

(sorry for the blurry picture, it was hard to get a good photo without ruining the beautiful glow)

Even the shops are magical…

Oh, Glastonbury, how I love thee and long to return in the not-too-distant future.

Tell me, what is your favourite place on earth and why?
