My favorite trip so far was my trip to London. I went there with the intent of meeting my old friend who was an exchange student at my high school from Belgium. Unfortunately, there was really bad weather in England that weekend, so he was unable to visit me, but I was able to see a lot of the city, and I got to choose wherever I wanted to go and whatever I wanted to see, so it was nice to do things on my own. I saw lots of cool things but my favorite sites were Westminster Abbey and the London Tower. Both these places are filled with so much history that thinking about how much these places have seen kind of blows my mind. I saw the burial sites of people like Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots along with many other royals, and I also got to see the burial spots of Charles Darwin and Sir Isaac Newton. At the London Tower, I saw the spot where Queen Anne Boleyn, former wife of Henry VIII was beheaded and the famous crown jewels. There’s so much history to London which makes the city fascinating to me. Not to mention the awesome accents of all the British people!! I would find myself laughing out loud at their voices sometimes. I also got to see Abbey Road, which is a must-see for any Beatles fan. I saw a really good musical at the Adelphi theater called Love Never Dies. It was the sequel to the Phantom of the Opera, and although nothing can compare to Phantom, the singers in the show were stellar and so moving. Over all, it was such a great trip, all the people were so friendly, unlike many Parisians, which only added to my enjoyment of the trip. I’m going to do my best to return to London/England before I come home in June.
