London 2009: Old Place, New Experiences and Things

Hi everyone! I'm back from England, and ready to share some of my trip! I had a good time, and am only suffering from mild jet lag right now.


Though I studied in England for a year in college and visited again in '99, there are still many things I hadn't seen or done. Some were simply because I didn't take the time at the time, like...


Changing of the guard:


P5040145 


P5040143 


P5040148


Or the Sir John Soane Museum (more on that at some later point!). Or, the historic Hampton Court palace:


P5030113 


P5030124


 


While these have been around a long time, there were other things that simply weren't there yet! Like the London Eye...


P4300003 


P4300011 


P4300020 


P4300028 


P4300026 


Or, going to the Tate Modern. There were also several new pedestrian bridges.


P4300007 


P5020061

  1. WONDERFUL pictures!!! Thank you so much! (Although the one looking down to the people walking along, from the vantage point of the "Eye" kind of gave me the heebie-jeebies...)
    Lovely, lovely, lovely. And I was just writing about the Hampton Court maze in one of my stories a few days ago, too!

  3. I did love it!!! My fellow traveler, though, got kind of claustrophobic and said it bothered her allergies, but I loved it!
    Beth, we ended up taking the cheating way out of that maze...
