UNITED KINGDOM ~Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon~

...Beautiful map card showing the historic town where William Shakespeare, possibly the world's most famous bard...we all know him... was born, lived, worked and lies buried...Must be pretty amazing and interesting to walk in the streets, see the houses he lived in and set a step back in time...
...Another place on my wishlist for a trip... Reminds me of the movie I've seen "Shakespeare in Love" and I must admit I wasn't a big fan!!:D:D Many thanks Eileen!!

Lovely stamps:Commemorative British Christmas stamps 2001-2006 and with the self adhesive "Make Up Values" stamps
