London (Bridge is falling down)

Ello!

For my senior year Spring Break trip, my school went to London, England. Not only was this one of the best trips I’ve ever went on, it was extremely educational. This was all really thanks to our amazing tour guide Alex, and I promise you if they ask me to give him a review it will be the best review I’ve ever written. He was friendly, fun and very informative. I learned a lot of history and about the British culture. Though it’s like a totally different world across the pond, with their Queen and constant flow of people in London (with a population of over 8 million), it was amazing. So amazing, I’m thinking that I’m going to just have to move there. (Excuse me if I say amazing a lot- there are only so many positive adjectives I can use!) There is so much to do and I love it. We did tons of things during our week there, including trips to Buckingham Palace (The Queen’s weekday home), Stonehenge, Bath (where the Roman Baths are; setting for the Wife of Bath’s Tale in Canterbury Tales), Windsor Castle (the Queen’s weekend home), we went to the British National Museum and we even saw The Play That Goes Wrong. The Play That Goes Wrong was probably one of the funniest (if not the funniest) play I’ve ever seen. The acting was phenomenal. London is home to a lot of museums and being the art junkie I am, I loved it. They had so much art, even some that was featured in my AP Art History course. If I talked about all of the other fantastic things we did, I’d be literally talking for hours. So I’ll just mention the highlights. The London Eye was amazing. You can literally see all of London from inside of your pod. Though it was quite pricey (23 pounds), it was worth it. I got some amazing pictures (featured below). I also loved visiting Shakespeare’s childhood home and going to the Globe Theatre. We got to do this activity in groups were we acted out some of Romeo and Juliet. It was a lot of fun but it also taught me how I can go about studying Shakespeare (reading aloud is KEY). I really enjoyed my trip, loved my roommates and am even going to be featured on an upcoming British TV show!

Cheerio!
