It's been a couple of weeks since I updated this. >.< Hopefully I'll be better about it from now on because I haven't even started taking my large trips. I figured I wouldn't say where I'm going just yet on here and instead would just say where I was when I got there! Trust me, it will be worth the wait.
So! Let's get started.
This is the outside of Buckingham Palace. We went there on the 25th for a small day trip. It was only 15 quid for a roundtrip, so that was awesome. We spent a lot of time just sitting around because everything to see in London is all pretty close together so we walked around a lot that day, but I wasn't even tired at the end of the day.
This is an epic picture of Big Ben. I took a lot of other ones, but I love how pretty it looks with the sun. :] It is the tallest four-faced chiming clock in the world! Looking at parliament next to it made me think of Harry Potter. In the 5th movie, the Order escorts Harry to the house and they fly right in front of it. I wish you could go in Big Ben...kind of like the statue of Liberty, but I understand why you couldn't. People would probably go deaf in there.
This is found in Hyde park which is over 350 acres! We didn't around all of it, but we did walk around a lot. It was a nice place to sit and relax. There were flowers everywhere and there was this really pretty water fountain that we sat by. We found a tree that looked like it started growing in the right direction, but then all the branches grew towards the ground. It made a dome that you could stand it.
So that was London in a very small nutshell. :]
