Travelogue: Canterbury Tales

In the southeast of England lies the picturesque town of Canterbury in the district of Kent, a popular tourist attraction and one of the most visited cities in the United Kingdom.
English literature fans may recognize the name from Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th-century classic The Canterbury Tales, and the small town is also known for its numerous historical sites, including the remains of a city wall from Roman times, the ruins of Canterbury Castle and the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral which unexpectedly took all our breaths away.
Besides ticking off the above, we also stumbled into a Freemason museum and ended up getting a free tour and history lesson by a Master Mason, ate authentic French baguettes at a delightful cafe on St Peter's Street and read tombstones at the local cemetery. I have learnt that the best travel experiences are often unplanned and serendipitous, and oftentimes the company and journey is as important as the destination.
