While many people get to enjoy their trips by looking through photo albums, as the host of my own YouTube web travel show-Traveling with Krushworth-I have the ability to relive my experiences through my short series of web videos.
For as long as I can remember, I have been enthralled with the history of Great Britain. Fancy jewel encrusted grails, swords impaled up to the hilt in stones and sleeping mythical kings of Glastonbury Abbey-I can't get enough of it.
From the Neolithic people who built woodhenge and then the more famous Stonehenge to Boadicea who torched Londinium, I have always had my nose pressed into the history books.
In May of last year, I saw much of the history I had previously read about in books from behind the lens of my video camera during my three-week whirlwind tour of Great Britain.
With my video camera in hand, I stood at Stonehenge, walked the cobblestone streets of a 1,000 year old village and peered out of arrow turrets in wind bitten castles looking for Harry Potter and his friends.
In Northern Wales, I shared a pint with Bruce Jones, one of the past stars of Coronation Street. Over pints of ale, we talked about Star Trek, the Mayans, wizards and almost got my head bitten off when I said I enjoyed Braveheart with Mel Gibson.
No joke, I met an elderly man who claimed he was a wizard; with one eye and one leg, I wasn't going to be the one to refute his conjuring abilities. In my video series, I start in Bath Spa; once each video finishes, there is a link to the next video.
Follow me from shining Bath Spa to the castles of Wales and onto the capital of the Scottish Highlands-Inverness-where I try to find the monster at Loch Ness. Hold the walls with me from invaders in the medieval city of Berwick-upon-Tweed; catch the train with me to York-take a moment to gaze in awe at York Minster.
Join me in the hustle and bustle of London-and maybe catch a West End production. Finish your journey with me in Oxford where I walk the grounds of the many colleges.
