In the past two days, I've covered more ground, visited more historical sites, and learned more about British history and sport than I ever believed possible! The touring began on Sunday, when we utilized our London Pass. The pass offers special deals and free entry for many museums throughout London. The only catch: you have 24 hours to use it! A group of us sat down and made a detail-oriented plan of all the places we wanted to visit. You can see The Plan on the right!
|The Globe Theater|
|All the world's a stage|
|A Tower Tourguide|
|An interactive display down in the bunker|
|The US Women's Olympic Water Polo Team!|
|Centre Court and meeee!|
After a nice nap on the train home, Christine and I went for a run around the area. We got a bit lost, but we made it to the Thames River and eventually past the Tower Bridge and Tower of London. The sun came out, and it was so cool to run alongside the river through the London landscape. I don't think I've been on a cooler run! I finished the day with a take away salad in my flat as I watched the sun set across the city. I'm starting to realize the days until I have to leave London are flying by! I'm definitely going to soak in as much of this city as I can in the next week and a half :) I can't wait for my family to come join on Saturday so I can show them all I've seen. And friends and family at home, I'm already at 1,090 photos and counting so look forward to ONE. GREAT. SLIDESHOW PRESENTATION!
