Today was my first day in London, England, UK. Honestly, I had no idea what to expect as I have never been east on Manhattan. Actually I expected to be treated quite poorly once I showed my American passport. The border patrol was quite friendly until I took a picture. One of the gaurds yelled at me! I laughed and kept the picture anyway.
Christopher and I are staying in a beautiful hotel in Picadilly Circus. Our room has a balcony that overlooks Regency St where a lot of shopping happens supposedly. I wouldn’t know. My feet are far too sore to go out and shop. Today we saw Big Ben, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, the Thames River, and sooo much more! We even ate in a british pub where I had fish and chips and Christopher ate bangers and mash. Way too much fun!
I can’t believe how lucky I am to be living this life…How did Dolly from Freeport, Texas end up traveling around Europe? What went right in my life? I don’t know. I’m so grateful for everything and am taking loads of pictures to share with everyone. Traveling is the most important part of life in my opinion, so get out there and do it!
See you in Paris!
