London, England

London was amazing.  I guess that is the simplest way to put it when I could go on and on for hours about all of the things I did which have already begun to blur.  It was great because I wasn't as connected... our phones didn't work, the internet was expensive, so we spent most of our time out and doing things... enjoying ourselves and the area.
Went to all the sites
Attended an Evensong Service at Westminster Abbey
Visited The Victoria and Albert Museum Which was amazing!!!
Saw Big Ben, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Covent Gardens, The Imperial War Museum....and much more
We ate at Dashoom (best indian ever), had an amazing dinner in China Town, had edgy ice cream, and ate many traditional breakfasts....and ate fish and chips in an English Pub in Salisbury.  
We went to Salisbury, Kent, Saw the Magna Carta, Went to Stone Henge, Stopped in Bath, took long rides through the beautiful countryside and explored london on the Underground...
That doesn't begin to describe it... but it was amazing and I am so thankful for an awesome husband who  made it happen  :D

And it begins...

The stressful week is over, I am officially a college graduate and technically a pretty low level historian, but a Historian all the same. Now I am battling my yearly spring cold which is being so unfriendly seeing as I am leaving for London in four days!
I cannot wait, but i need to emerge from this evil evil evil cold.
