For those of you who haven’t checked my other blog at all, I got to go to Europe over the break with my sister, Erika, and my cousin, Tanya. The plan was London, Rome, Berlin, Paris, and back to London.
Let me just say that it was FABULOUS (even with all the baggage stuff to deal with). I don’t want to bore everyone with the travelogue play-by-play, so I won’t. I’m just going to highlight some of my favorite parts and share some of the interesting/funny/ridiculous experiences we had. The pictures above are from our first stop in London. We made multiple stops at Harrod’s. For those of you who have been to London, you know that Harrod’s is kind of cliche…but I love it! Seriously…I love shopping…and food…and Harrod’s combines the two beautifully. Day 1 we stopped just for fun, day 2 it was because Erika needed new shoes (she’s never traveled like this before and didn’t realize just how uncomfortable her normally comfortable shoes would be when walking all day long).
A quick run down…Harrod’s, Hyde Park, Les Miserables, Westminster Abbey, Parliament, and the London Eye. We had a fabulous time. It was fun to be back in Europe with my sister and cousin, neither of whom had been before. I really appreciated a) how lucky I am to have spent so many trips/months over there and b) how amazing Europe truly is.
And in case you were wondering, I’ve decided that somehow I’m going to live in London for at least a year. I don’t know how…but I’m going to make it happen.
