Visiting Lawrence of Arabia - Dorset - U.K.
Reading the book "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom", the autobiography of T.E. Lawrence, (better known as Lawrence of Arabia), I fell completly in love with him, I had the wish of visiting his grave, and all the places he used to be around... (link)
arriving to Dorchester
my wish coming true... I wanted so badly to leave a flower on his grave...
St. Nicholas Church, here took place Lawrence's funeral on the afternoon of 21st May 1935
Clouds Hill (Lawrence's cottage), bought as a retreat from his army life he read, wrote and listened to music here, he occupied it between 1923 and 1935.
on the front door is written in greek "why worry" or " does no care", Clouds Hills is near Bovington Camp
Above Bovington Camp, bellow a Memorial Stone and Oak Tree dedicated to Lawrence, close to the site of his motorcycle accident
One of Lawrence last pictures
an effigy of Lawrence of Arabia is in St. Martin Church (was closed that day...)
pic-nic on the river with Jenny
driving through Porteham... the surprise...
...ducks everywhere, even in the middle of the road
they don't care at all about traffic or human beings...
Last night before leaving...
Jenni, Andrew, Ollie and Precious - Thank you so much!!!!! :b
