Great Expectations is more than a title by Dickens. It describes how I felt about the family trip I had planned to London last week. Luckily, our story has a happy ending. London met all our expectations...and then some.
We just returned and I'm still adjusting to this time zone, so I'll share my favorite places and travel resources in another post, but I wanted to share some photographic highlights of our week. We did it all from the London Eye, to the Crown Jewels...Changing of the Guards to Churchill's war rooms, Shakespeare at The Globe to Afternoon tea. Something for everyone.
And, we didn't pull out our umbrellas once. Thanks, London, for the sights, the hospitality and the sun! It was more than I ever expected!
Every great story has an element of surprise. For me that was getting to meet fellow Texan (now Londoner) and blogger, Lauren, of Aspiring Kennedy and her little lady, Viola, on my last day in London!
Now, back to lemonade, fireflies and sandcastles!
What are your expectations for this summer?
