Traveling


May 27th was a much more chill day, but still fun of course. I got to see my first real rugby game ever! We headed to Twickenham Stadium to watch England vs. Barbarians. It was a cool game to see because the Barbarians are composed of players from all over, not just one country, that are invited to play. When we got off the train...

To continue our beautiful May 26th in London we journeyed over to the British Museum. We decided to do a self-guided tour using a map provided by the museum. They highlight the best parts of the museum so you can make sure you get to see all the good stuff even if you’re short on time. One of the first things we got to see were the...

May 26th started off with a tour of Olympic Village, which was cool even though I expected to see a little more. I did learn a lot, although I was not a big fan of the tour guide… she seemed kind of high-strung. She took us through the different parts of Olympic Village, explaining the process the area has been going through to turn it...

We started off our day slightly later on May 25th, and it was yet another day beginning with a brewery tour. We headed to the Griffin Brewery where we got to see how Fuller’s beer is brewed. At the end we got to enjoy tasting all the different kinds of Fuller’s beers. Our next activity wasn’t for a while, so we had some time to...

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...

We left Scotland on May 23rd and took a 5 hour train ride to London. We arrived at King’s Cross Station and got right on a coach bus for a 3 hour tour of the city with Richard Digby Day (I had to include his name because it’s so awesome), whose main job is a British Stage Director. I just had to post this picture...

The last day in Scotland, May 22nd, had arrived and would be spent in the Scottish countryside. Our first stop was Stirling, where we learned about the Wars of Independence and the REAL story of William Wallace of Braveheart. Next we went to Kilmahog, where I got to meet Hamish <3 I thought he was the cutest thing ever!! He is a Highland Cow, which...

Yesterday I wrote about the beginning of our free day and today you get to read about the rest of our adventures that day. As we were wandering down the Royal Mile, we came across the cutest little boutique called Miss Katie Cupcake. They had the most adorable jewelry and other little things I have ever seen! Seriously, you need to click on that link above. All of...

Free day today to do whatever we want! It was May 21st and me and the group of amazing people I spent the day with really made use out of our day off to explore more of Scotland. We got a head start on the day by first going to do Arthur’s Seat Hike. Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano that is 250.5 meters (or...
