May 24th was a day packed full of activities from start to finish. Our first activity was the Wimbledon tour, so we headed to Farringdon Station for our first tube experience. The tube is exactly the same as the El or subway in Chicago, but I think it was much more organized in London. First of all, most stations seemed to have a set traffic...

I just had to post this picture...

It was taken out of service in 1994 and is now...

We arrived in Edinburgh around 6pm on May 19th and we were in for a special treat… we stayed at The Hostel (yes, that’s the name.. they don’t even bother trying to fool you). When we arrived, the Hearts had just beaten the Hibs in the Scottish Cup Final. The Scottish Cup Final is football, or what we call soccer in America. It was a...

Our last day in Ireland was May 19th. Time seemed to be flying by and I didn’t want to leave Dublin, but at the same time I couldn’t wait to see what else was out there. But before leaving will still had a few final stops to make. First we went to Christ’s Church Cathedral, which was founded in 1030 and is still in use...
