Since I was gone for an entire month, part study abroad, part vacation, I'm going to break this up a little bit so I don't over load everyone. ;-)
We left home on Saturday, May 12 and drove all the way to Washington, D.C. to catch my flight. I decided to fly out from there because I didn't want any lay-overs and a chance for my luggage to go missing. My flight went very smooth, landed early, and I made it through everything in a breeze. This was huge for me as my first time flying alone, and I absolutely LOVED it!!
I met up with my study abroad group upon landing and we left from there. The first day was a little rough as the time difference, and I had been awake for 32 hours straight!!!
We enjoyed our first day unpacking, having a group lunch, a bus tour of London & then crashing out. Well once we had contacted our families.

Our first full day was spent in the classroom and then some sites. First we toured the British museum & then rode the London Eye. I love the Eye! I got to experience back in 2009 when I went with my family, and it was so much fun riding again.

Our second day we went to Cambridge. Here we toured King's College Chapel, and viewed The Charles Darwin project, which is a collection of his books, letters, journals, and surveys. We experienced every scenario of weather in Cambridge. Rain, wind, sun, hail, you name it, it happened.
|Ready to board the train!|
|Inside the chapel, so GORGEOUS!|
Day three we had class first thing in the morning and then a free day, yippee!! After class & all my work was pretty much done I hopped on over to Harrods. Ah this place is heaven!
But seriously. I looove Harrods! Six floors of everything you can imagine. From an ice cream bar to puppies to designer clothing & footwear. It was a dream come true. I walked around aimlessly for two hours before deciding I needed help, and Laurdee macaroons. Once I got my streets I scooted on across the street because hello, theres Hyde Park, which is gorgie as well!!
|such a pretty day|
I'll be back with more soon!!!! ;-)
