Bei Charles Dickens in Bath

DSC01948
Charles Dickens war oft in Bath, unter anderem als Reporter. Eine Bronzetafel am 
St James’s Square erinnert an einen Besuch im Jahr 1840

Ein Weltkulturerbe aus historischen Werkstein-Gebäuden, mit römischen Bädern und quirlig-lebendigen Bars und Cafés. Und vor allem: ganz vielen Touristen. Das alles ist Bath. Und noch viel mehr. Wenige Schritte aus dem Zentrum, und schon sind die wunderschönen alten Straßen menschenleer. Und ich entdecke sogar eine Charles-Dickens-Gedächtnistafel!

Beautiful Worthing by the sea

Photos: Thilo Kunze. (Please click to enlarge.)

My tranquil Worthing is locatet only one and a half hours from London and directly on the English Channel. A running track on the waterfront is easily found. I enjoy the changing views of high and  low tide. On Sunshine often follows clouds and rain: This is so on this beautiful island!

I live near the station in the comfortable house from the hospitable couple Tina and Chris. Everything is within a few minutes away: the school where I improve my English, the beach, restaurants, pubs, and – who needs it – of course, shops. Hard to believe that Worthing has 100.000 inhabitants: There are no skyscrapers, the center is manageable, and I win the impression of a cozy small town.

With Tina and Chris the fate was generous with me. I will never forget the wonderful friendliness, really fantastic food (varied, tasty, large quantities!) and our good talks. Thank you!

St. Georges School of English

The St. Georges School of English is a small but nice school with a wonderfully positive working atmosphere. The spark ignites the pupils and motivated them. Anyway, now I plan to learn more and better. And if it’s not working, I have just to come back. With pleasure!
