.London, England.

big ben
The last stop on our little adventure. And I didn't know if I was happy or sad about it.....or perhaps a little of both. Kind of a bittersweet feeling if you know what I mean; Excited your heading home, but sad to have it all end.
But I was ready. It was the perfect trip and I was craving a little downtime in my own bed. Not to mention, I missed my family.
We were gone a total of 26 days from start to finish and while we were away the trip was perfectly paced, without feeling rushed, but then when I look back I can't believe we had just gone through almost an entire month! So again, a bit of a bittersweet moment.
However, this is about London.
Beautiful history-filled London.
We spent the first night we arrived visiting a new friend of ours, Rhian, who lives there. We unfortunately didn't take any pictures that night [silly us. I know you're all pic's!] so trust me in saying she assisted us greatly in navigating the underground subway system and city. We also shared quite a few laughs, so Rhian, if you're reading this, "Thanks Lady".
The next day was filled with as much sight-seeing as we could manage. We visited the London Eye; Strolled past Big Ben; Posed in front of Westminster Abbey; Shopped at Oxford Circus; Checked out Buckingham Palace; And got stuck in a quick rainstorm. Oh, we also watched a little of the England vs. Italy Euro quarter finals soccer match playing that night. 
So I'd say in one day we really got the total English package. Rain and Soccer.
