and i’m back!
Whew! I am back from London guys! I hope everyone enjoyed all the guests posts I had lined up for you. Those are some amazing ladies…oh and Keith 🙂 If you missed any here they are:
Wow…that was a good week! Thank you to everyone who helped me and wrote guests posts for me. You guys rock!!
Now about that London trip. I am going to start by saying that I am not one of those bloggers who breaks down her vacation day by day and draws out the recap over several posts. It just aint me…because honestly you weren’t there so do you really want to read multiple posts about my vacation? Exactly. So let’s hit the highlights.
First, the trip was amazing and London is an awesome city. I would venture to say that I could totally live there (assuming I could get used to the tiny flats they live in…wow). But everyone was so nice and helpful and it was just a lovely city.
So first here are some pictures from all the famous destinations in London. Everything took my breath away!
Big Ben with The London Eye in the background
Standing outside the Tower of London
Harrods (of course!)
My two favorite things we did were see a musical, Billy Elliot. AMAZING!
And shopping at the outdoor Portobello Market in Notting Hill!
Plus figuring out the underground subway system (the tube) was fun. Remember, I live in Texas, we don’t have public transportation like that!
We also visited a slew of museums! We did the Vicotria Albert, the British Museum, the Tate Modern and the Tower of London where we got to see the Crown Jewels (no pictures were allowed though!)
At the British Museum we got to see the already designed 2012 London Summer Olympic Games gold medals on display! That was very cool!
And I got to hold the Olympic Torch at Madam T’s Wax Museum…ahahah!
The other hard part was that everyone drives on the other side of the road. So crossing the street was confusing at times because I didn’t know which way to look! Thankfully those Brits got it figured out!
Overall the trip was amazing. It was the best 30th birthday present my mom could have ever given me (don’t freak out my birthday was in April…you didn’t miss it! haha) and I honestly can’t wait to go back with Keith one day!
