One of our last big trips was to London. We picked up our friends, Amy and Travis, from the Paris airport on the way. They had stayed in Paris for a few days and we were so happy to get to spend some time with them!
We did all the touristy things in London like touring Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, eating Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas, Meat Pies, riding a double-decker bus, taking the Tube, seeing the Big Ben clock tower, and seeing London Bridge. Our favorites were visiting Stonehenge and the Harry Potter Warner Brothers Studio Tour. Stonehenge was very interesting, especially since they don’t know much about it. Harry Potter was even better since we are such Harry Potter
nerds fans. Even Brooklyn had a great time and enjoyed seeing all the parts of the sets. She got to practice using a wand, ride a broom, sit in the Weasley’s cars, walk through Diagon alley, walk across the bridge at Hogwarts, and too much more to list! And, of course, our visit wasn’t complete without some butterbeer!
And check out the picture of the gray ice cream bar. It was Magnum brand ice cream in Champagne flavor and it really had alcohol in it! I had seen the Champagne flavored ones before and wanted to try one before we left, because I don’t think they have these in the U.S. or do they? It was horribly disgusting, so you guys aren’t missing anything if they only sell them in France. 🙂
