4 years ago this week I took a trip that completely changed my life. Ok, maybe that's a bit dramatic...
... actually, no. It's right on. In March 2010, I took the most amazing vacation ever to London, England. I haven't forgotten it and, on a nearly daily basis, I find myself wishing I was back there. Way back when, I blogged about the vaca on a separate blog just for the trip so friends and family could follow our journey. Since my blog survey revealed many of you wanted more "everyday life posts", I figured there wasn't a better way to introduce you to the real me than to share one of best weeks of my life! So all week long, I'm going to be reblogging those posts here (after much editing and pretty-ing up - you're welcome!). Let's get started shall we?
(Please remember I am reblogging these so they're going to be written as if the trip just happened. Let's pretend it did!)
This is it... our last post from London.
Today was a relaxed day. We shopped this morning (Terri's idea, mind you) at Selfridges, a big name department store here in London. It was much more reasonable than Harrods. We bought way too many souvenirs here.
After shopping, we went to the cinema, which is not a big to-do here. It is, however, EXPENSIVE! Wow. You will all appreciate the prices of our movie theaters much better when we tell you our tickets cost a whopping £12 ($18!). Seriously! We spent over £35 ($50) there today. Yikes! Our flick of choice was Leap Year, which I believe we have in the US. It was super cute. We loved it. The cinema was very strange though. We think it had about 6 floors. Our movie was in theater 9, which was on the top floor. It was very weird!
Our plan now is to pack, pray that our suitcases don't weigh too much, and relax for the night. Our flight home tomorrow leaves at 9:55am from here and will arrive around 2pm there... It's 9 hours in the air but only 4 in real time! How strange is that?!
This trip has been the trip of a lifetime. The memories we made (and 852 pictures we took) will always be special to us. I can't speak for Terri, but I plan on returning at some point. It's just so amazing here!
