Lifestyle/ Stonehenge

Yesterday we went to see Stonehenge one of the most famous sites  located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2 hours driving from London. It is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England. The ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is unique; an exceptional survival from a prehistoric culture now lost to us.
The monument evolved between 3,000 BC and 1,600 BC. It is aligned with the midsummer sunrise and midwinter sunset, but its exact purpose remains a mystery.
Was really amazing to be there a part from the crew of tourist everywhere (us too) taking photos like mad! Why do we do it? Why can we just enjoy the moment and contemplate what is around us; We sat down and enjoy the view it was in the middle of nowhere and the sky did look quite amazing! 
Ayer fuimos a ver a Stonehenge uno de los sitios más famosos ubicados en el condado de Wiltshire, cerca de 2 horas en coche de Londres. El antiguo círculo de piedras de Stonehenge es único, una supervivencia excepcional de una cultura prehistórica se ha perdido para nosotros. 
El monumento se desarrolló entre el 3.000 aC y 1.600 aC. Está alineado con la salida del sol del verano y puesta del sol del solsticio de invierno, pero su propósito exacto sigue siendo un misterio. 
¿Fue realmente increíble estar allí a parte de todos los turístas en todas partes (nosotros también) tomando fotos como locos! ¿Por qué lo hacemos? ¿Por qué podemos simplemente disfrutar el momento y contemplar lo que nos rodea; Nos sentamos a disfrutar de la vista ya que estabamos en medio de la nada y el cielo se veía muy impresionante!

  1. Que bonitas fotos Victoria! Es muy cierto, nos olvidamos de disfrutar el momento por querer capturarlo todo! Me encantaría conocer el lugar algún día en persona, Saludos!


  2. Amazing photos, I wish to go someday, looks so monumental!

  3. Beautiful photos, you are your family are lovely. I know exactly what you mean, I do try and take time to enjoy such monuments instead of seeing it through a lens, it drives me crazy when people take photos all the way through gigs though! xx

  4. you guys look like such a cute family !!

  5. Hay veces que sufrimos de una especie de estupidez llama "Turistitis" creo yo, pero bueno es un mal general :)
    Por cierto la última foto con tu crio es super entrañable <3

  8. Aw i love these pictures sweetie!!! Looks like you had a fun day! :)

    Take care, Daniella xox

  9. Great pictures, I suppose we just take lots of photos in places like this so we have something to look back on rather than just try to remember the moments. Great outfit, I'm loving the double denim :) xx

  10. Muchas veces se nos olvida disfrutar estos grandes pequeños momentos. Adoro cuando pones fotos de tu familia, es muy bonita y se nota que son muy unidos.

  11. what an absolutely beautiful post. i agree w/ you about the photo-snapping...i live in NYC for 10 years and have very few pictures of touristy things, people always ask me, but i never really felt right about shooting there. it must be so cool to be able to DRIVE to stonehenge...perfect pics and outfit too, i love how you're able to have a family and husband and still pursue your creative and artistic dreams! thanks for sharing.

  12. I've always wanted to visit Stonehenge! =)


  13. Beautiful place, I love the photos :)


  14. Love this post! Such an interesting mystery. Your pictures are great.

  15. amazing location. so ancient and magical. definitely one of those places where you have to pinch yourself to realize that you're actually there. you have a beautiful family!


  16. Hermosas fotos, el verde del pasto y el celeste del cielo son el complemento perfecto para deslumbrar en un día sencillo <3
    Me encantaron.

    Que tengas una semana maravillosa,
    nos vemos!

  17. It just looks magical. I hope I can go one day. The last photo is beautiful of you and your son,

  18. WOW! This place is so beautiful and magic! The pics are gorgeous and so lovely.
    You look fantastic <3


  19. Such positive pictures, love your family! :)
    And I really like your thoughts on picture taking.. So many people love taking pictures of everything - as you said, it’s a (sad) proof that they have done it. And for us, bloggers, it can be even worse. sometimes I feel obligated to take pictures just so I can post them later…

  20. I just love all the mysticism surrounding Stonehenge. How great you were there with your family!

    Your comment on just enjoying things rings so true right now for me. I've taken a real hiatus for weeks on blogging, precisely because I decided to stop being a documenter/photographer in favor of being part of the experience. That, and of course, too much Olympics! -- J xx

  21. this place is amazing! i have seen some pictures from my cousin who lives in cambridge, and well, this on the top of my list of things to see in england... the only problem is that i will be probably flying in the winter and i know it will be rainy and cold. i've heard that summer has finally arrived in the UK... and i believe - and this is also valid for germany- that the summer is now in august... maybe because of global warming, or just because from time to time the weather starts changing! the place seems to be breathtaking. very nice.
    take care and have a nice tuesday! there's a new mix tape on liveonbeauty that i hope you enjoy.
    nice pictures and the burger looks yummy... and i am hungry!
    take care!

  23. Beautiful pictures, this place looks amazing, fabulous work!
