Here we go!
First stop: London! (December 25, 2017 – December 29, 3017)
Upon arrival it was raining, windy, and all together dreary, but I had never felt more excited.
Together we explored much of the “main attractions” including:
Buckingham Palace (smaller than you might think)
The London Eye
Parliament building, Elizabeth Tower, and Big Ben (Fun fact – the tower itself is not called “Big Ben” but rather the “Elizabeth Tower”, the bell inside the tower is what is actually called “Big Ben”)
The Tower of London. Picture Prine Henry VIII being angsty an angsty AF teenager trusted to rule a powerhouse kingdom
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
Some local Museums (Imperial War Museum & Clink Dungeon Museum)
And, of course, several local drinking holes
The weather was consistently overcast, except for one lovely sunny day in which we accidentally wasted half of it in bed after having a few too many “pops” and staying out late the night before. C’est la vie.
Over-all, wonderfully festive time in London at Christmas!
