Wow, that was a very fast eight days. I can’t believe I am back in America already. But I can’t really complain because I had an awesome time and made memories that will last forever. I plan to go home this weekend so I can show my family everything I did. I can’t wait to tell them all the things I saw and what I did while I was on the trip. This trip was by far the best Spring Break I had ever had. The weather there was at a nice 60 degrees. I got to experience an entirely new culture. Also, I was able to see the great architecture that London has to offer.
Wow, those are very fast eight days. Spring Break literally flew by us and I am sure no one wants to leave London. I still feel like I have so much more to explore and learn about London. If I had the time I would just want to walk around London and take my the exploring the city. I could not care if I got lost or not because I would be having such a great time just walking through the city. Also, there is an underground station and maps all throughout London. I just wish that Spring Break could be a little longer because there is still so much more that I want to see and do.
What a great day today has been. I had a great time going to Windsor with Shelby, Desiree, Ashley, and Kelsey. The fun part of the day was just getting there. It felt like a great achievment figuring out the way by ourselves ( mostly Shelby). Walking through Windsor Castle was really quite something. All the room were beautifully decorated with gold and crafted with true craftsmanship. We also got to experience the changing of the guard. It was really cool how important the change is but my arms about feel off from filing for like forty minutes straight and I did not even see the guard change. Still, I had a great time going to Winster. The day could not have been better and I cannot believe that we are leaving tomorrow.
Wow, today was an extremely tight day. There was not much time to do to much today. Our tour at Westminster Abbey started off with a ten minute sketch but felt more like three. After the tour we had to do another sketch and go find something to eat. Without missing the boat ride. Greenwich was just the same. The places we visited all had a max time of ten minutes. Then we had to hurry to the firm my group went to which was SOM. After which we hurried to our pub to get supper. The night finished with Shelby and I running to Adidas to buy some soccer items and rushing back so he did not miss the this to Bedzed. What a day !
Today was full of wonderful views. Kew Gardens was our first stop on our journey today and it could not have been better. To bad that we could not explore the 326 acres. After Kew it was time for lunch and what a struggle that was to get there, but we managed to find the right path and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The London Eye was pretty special too. It gave a great view of the sun setting over the city. However, I think the greatest part of the night was my trip to The Shard with John and Todd. From the top one could see the entire city of London. That was well worth the £29.95 in my opinion.
Today has been our second day in London and so far in these past two days I have seen a lot. The best by far had to be the visit to Saint Paul’s Cathedral. The cathedral was just beautiful. It really stinks that pictures were not allowed because words could not describe it. Also, the view of the city from the very top made for some excellent pictures of the city. The second best thing has to be going to the British Museum. The museum was full of architecture and artifacts from pretty much everywhere. I had a blast going around and having the chance to see all of it. So far these past two days have been great. I cannot wait to see what the other days have to offer us.
The weeks just seemed to fly by. Going from weeks to days and now the bus ride there. Since this is going to be my first time leaving the United States ever, so many questions are coming to mind. Some like, “Do I have everything?”, is the biggest one that comes to my mind. Yet, I feel so ready for this, I do not think nothing can bring me down.
The hardest part for this trip for me will definitely be the plane ride. However, as soon as we land in London, everything we be so much better.
I cannot wait to go around The City and see all the buildings. Also, I plan to go see Lion King live. I really want to see and embrace this new culture.
