Back Home & London [Day 8]

31 Jul

Good morning!

I’m back in America!  I had a great trip in London, but it feels good to be home.  Special shout out to Katie and her family for taking care of me 🙂 they were wonderful hosts and Katie made sure I saw everything there was to see.

On my last day in London, we finally saw rain.  Every other day was beautiful with hot temperatures and sunny skies.  In the early afternoon, we went to the Tower of London.  The Tower of London is a huge castle that was used as a royal residence and also as a prison.  We even got to see the Crown Jewels!  It holds a great deal of history and it was really cool to explore.  Next up, we stopped at a pub for lunch and a drink.  Later in the evening, Katie and I went out with her family for my last meal in London.

Some pics from the day:

Today’s London highlights:

M&M’s World.

Watching the Olympics on TV at a pub called Yates’s while enjoying burgers and beers.

Walking around Trafalgar Square.

Some thoughts:

  1. A week in London is not enough.  There is literally so much to do and to explore.  I could never live here though, because I’d be broke!
  2. I love going on vacations, but by the end I’m almost always ready to get home.  Need my fam, my bed and my own food.
  3. British food is really tasty, but a little heavy for me and different from my usual eats.
  4. I cannot believe July is nearly over.  I’m looking forward to being home, but not looking forward to being back to reality.
  5. The Olympics are seriously SO cool.  It’s amazing to see so many athletes from all over the world competing for the ultimate title of athleticism.

Have a great evening!

Are you ready to get home after a long vacation?

What is your favorite thing about the Olympics?
