Recently I was at Stonehenge - don't get me wrong, it's an amazing place... However, just 20 miles up the road is Avebury - the WORLD's LARGEST stone circle, (also built earlier than Stonehenge). Avebury lives in Stonehenge's celebrity shadow. At Avebury you can touch and walk among the stones, which you can't do at Stonehenge, and also is far less packed with tourists and completely free to enter, at any given time, day or night.

The sheer scale of Avebury is impressively vast - the outer circle is 1,088 ft in diameter, about a mile of walking round. Walking among these stones, you get a deep sense of connection to the past and you almost feel as if you're walking through an ancient city. The feeling was a new and profound one for me - I felt very humbled.

Around Avebury there is also a tomb, a sanctuary (though these stones have gone and been replaced with wooden markers) and Europe's largest artificial mound called Silbury Hill. England's megalith structures are incredible to say the least, and there's so much rich, unexplored and unexplained history in the land.

Winter Solstice later this month, I'll be at Avebury ✌

Side note, interestingly the magic mushrooms picked within sacred sites have a different colour to them, and are considerably a lot stronger than others depite being the same variety. Megalith sites were said to be built on the intrinsic fields of the earth, so it makes sense that whatever grows around them would be more potent... 🍄

Absolutely, it’s a must! You’re welcome, so much lesser known, which peaks interest so much more...

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

My Anarchist's Guide to Travel came in today, six days early! I know it's not anything major, but I feel like I'm finally making progress towards getting myself out and traveling.

Now I just have to make sure I don't forget about my book review (which I wrote in my spare time) because I was too busy plowing through this. 😬

EDIT: It also came with a message from Matt and an awesome StP sticker that I didn't notice at first! Thank you!!
