A New Year Adventure - Part 3

Last but not least, we headed to London. We had some time to wander around town before we could check into our hotel. After we grabbed a bite to eat we headed over to Buckingham Palace.


St. James' Park

We walked by St. James' Park and got distracted by all of the park animals!

This guy kept asking for some cookies.

This little squirrel is bulking up for the winter!


We took the tube around town. Here is the boys catching up with the local news. We could finally understand the language and read the newspaper!


London Eye

We took a ride on the London Eye. The view is really nice and it doesn't go too fast to induce any motion sickness. We couldn't resist buying the photo package that they sell at the end of the ride. Got two large printouts, book, stickers, key chain and magnet!


Emirates Stadium

Henry was really happy to visit Emirates Stadium. Can you tell?? :D We didn't take a tour, but we visited the retail store to buy some team apparel.


Leicester Square

There were so many people here! We shopped, looked around, and visited some nightclubs. We didn't gamble, but I had to take a shot since the gold and red popped out against the sky.


Harrods Department Store

My oh my. This place is fancy and huge!! I remember having a Harrods bear as a kid! We bought souvenirs here. We also looked for the Laduree but didn't know where to go at first. We were able to get a map from a cashier after buying something. They don't have maps near the entrances. We went down the Egyptian escalator and watched a live opera performance.


Natural History Museum

This place is free! It's a definite must-see! We saw dinosaurs, jewels, mammals, stones, creepy crawlies, and more. We stuck to the main attractions and also managed to not get lost inside!



Food, food, and more food. We ate a buffet spot here. Good food and cheap! Happy Lunar Year!  


This Eurotrip was a blast! I wish I could go back on vacation. It's only been a little over two weeks and I'm ready to take on more cities!
