England Adventures

The last leg of my trip! We left Edinburgh by train in the midmorning, leaving us with the middle of our day traveling to London. London was definitely a city, I'm from a very small town so being in the hustle and bustle was culture shock. I didn't realize how city it would be, but never the less I did enjoy myself.

One of our first days there we visited I Knit London and we got tickets to see Mamma Mia!

What an amazing performance! Small theater, great voices, and my sisters favorite musical. I don't think there was a better way to start our trip. We laughed through the entire performance and had a blast comparing the language difference between US English and UK English.

Our next big adventure while staying in London was traveling to Stonehenge! OMG! AMAZING! This was so surreal. I actually turned to my mom and said "we're at Stonehenge," I can't believe that I am lucky enough to world travel.

While on our tour we found Cornish Pasty's! 

The next day we took another tour to Canterbury Cathedral and Dover. The cathedral was stunning, more massive than even Notre Dame! But what I really loved was Dover Castle, it was staged to look like a medieval castle, King Arthur style. We had a blast, running around like children exploring all the nooks and crannies it had. It was similarly decorated to the BBC show Merlin so I fangirled a bit, but so did Logan. 

Our last two days were spent exploring and being tourist in London. We watched the changing of the guard and dashed our way across Run London, made a stop to hear Big Ben and pose with the London Eye. 

Our last day was spent visiting Borough Market, walking across Tower Bridge, and taking a hilarious tour on the Thames River. I really wish we had open air markets in the US like there is in Europe. I would grocery shop every day if I could visit a market similar to Borough. On each trip my mom and I like to take a night tour of the city to get a different perspective, I loved London at night!

After having such a wonderful adventure I can't wait to go back! I'm thinking in the spring, Spain is calling my name! 


  1. everyone looks so very happy!! What a fun trip and so many memories made, I for one would have been thrilled with every single place you visited. Especially the YARN stores...

    1. This was my sisters first trip, my moms second, and my third everyone was ecstatic! There are a few things in London I still want to see, that will have to be another trip.

  2. I totally agree with you...travelling as much as you can is the most wonderful thing. Some of my best memories are travel related : ) What a great trip you had. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

    1. Some of my best times I've had in my life so far are while traveling. Even if its not outside of the US. Travel really opens you up to new experiences.
