The Last Hurrah

20170407_143511Yesterday was our final day in London and I couldn’t be happier; it was fun, but home is where the heart is. I got to see a new place and truly compare it to life back home. We visited Westminster Abbey, which was a great place to visit. Then, we went to the Sherlock Holmes museum and then we went to Elizabeth Olympic Park. I loved the park! It was beautiful and there was a small fair there. We originally had planned to ride the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the largest sculpture in Europe (which is pictured above), but there were no tickets, so we went to the fair instead. It was a blast! As I wrap up this post I want people to know that it’s not the name of a place that makes it great. London is just like any other city. I personally enjoyed going to the places that weren’t smack in the middle of the city, but a bit outside of it. So, East End was probably one of my favorite areas, as well as Greenwich. Also, don’t get your hopes up as you travel in the future. All cities have the same basic look and they feel the same (large crowds, tall buildings, great feats in architecture, and so on). So go in ready to see city life and try and see what makes that city different from one that you know and appreciate the time you have to spend away from your normal life and just have fun.
