London, Days 1-3 (in short…)


Hi everyone! I’m really enjoying my time here in London. We’re only a few days in, but we’ve done a lot, with so much more to do. This was taken on our first day from a Thames Boat ride to Westminster from Tower Hill (I cannot tell you how amazing it was to see the Tower of London, after so many years of reading about it!). We don’t go into the tower for a few days, and tomorrow we’re going to Dover to see the White Cliffs and have some great fish & chips, then to see Les Miserables!

We just finished a Jack the Ripper walk, and yesterday did the Shakespeare & Dickens’ London walk. Today we did the British Library and saw the Beowulf manuscript (blew my mind!) and the Magna Carta. Then to the British Museum to see some amazing Greek and Assyrian artifacts. Didn’t spend nearly as much time there as I’d like, but maybe we’ll try later. We saw the highlights, though.

Take a look at the picture, and there will be more to come, someday!

Cheers!

Big Ben & Westminster
