Trip Report London Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Thank you all who helped out directly by answering my questions prior to our trip, and those of you who I learned equally as much from in your trip reports or posts in doing research for our trip to London. I just spent hours creating a blog for the purpose of having my family have a record of our journeys together. It has been years since I have gone to the effort of printing photos and making photo albums. I had spent so much time compiling and creating these albums in the past, and none of us even look at them. I figured with the paperless world we live in, I would create a blog for that purpose and to record a couple other interests of mine.

We had a wonderful time in spite of the pretty awful weather. Rain, rainy, pouring down rain, cold, and windy. We had a wonderful time in spite of a college freshman who really didn't want to be on this trip, and at some points made it pretty miserable for everyone, I was flabbergasted because the person I knew just two years ago would have told me she wanted to live in London. She would have loved all of the history, and read up on everything.

We saw and did so much, and I truly enjoyed everything. If I had to say my top three things we did it would be Hampton Court Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the British Museum, but members of my family would say differently, they would say the Tower of London, Churchill's War Rooms, shopping, walking around the neighborhoods, Borough Market, HMS Belfast, Buckingham Palace, and afternoon tea. London truly did have something for everyone. We had a great time.

If you would like you can check out my blog post regarding this trip.
