A quick real time update….we made it safe and sound to Boston! Our time abroad feels so far away, even though it was just a few weeks ago! We have been busy settling into our new jobs, unpacking and seeing friends. We love our new apartment which is in a great area near the Prudential Center. So far, so good!
OK, back to Europe. Our final weekend trip was to London, where we had a jammed packed weekend. Our hotel sucked, but we nevertheless had a great time…there is so much to see in London! It was nice to hear the english language, but weird to see people driving/walking on the wrong side of the street. We tried to find a spotted dick to eat, but had no luck 😦
We meandered through the exhibits at the Tower of London, where we saw some pretty obnoxious bling bling (no photos allowed), and learned a bit about England history, torture devices, knights, and ravens.
Although we were pretty museum-ed out by this point, we still managed to see a large chunk of the British museum (this museum was AMAZING….we both think this was the best museum that we saw during our whole time abroad, despite being sick of museums).
On our last evening, we had dinner in Chelsea at Gordon Ramsey’s Foxtrot. We walked to the river and stumbled upon a firework show. It was a great end to the weekend 🙂
