Stratford-upon-Avon, England

Quick funny story.  I pride myself in being historically informed and in being fairly well read, then I get a dose of reality sometimes.  When we were in Stratford-up-Avon last year, I kept reading about Anne Hathaway’s cottage and wondering why on earth was the cottage of some Hollywood actress so famous.  We visited it nonetheless, and it wasn’t until we got there that I figured out it was not Anne Hathaway the actress but a different Anne Hathaway altogether; one of, obviously, Shakespearean connections.  My husband thought I was joking when I said I had thought it was the actress.   I must admit, I felt pretty stupid.
