Being the smart girl I am, I didn’t bring any tour books or maps with me to London, so for the first day or two, pretty much the only places I was familiar with were: Tesco (the grocery store around the corner from us), Hyde Park (the park we walk through to get to Pepperdine), and Pepperdine. I was sure there were lots of things close by, but I had no idea where. Luckily, Pepperdine set up a bus tour for the students, so the day after we got here, we got to ride around in a double decker bus and see the sights.
I admit, my knowledge of history is extremely limited, so whenever our tour guide would give a fact and preface it by saying, ‘As everyone knows …’, I would just laugh to myself cause I had no idea what he was talking about. Anyways, here are a few pics from the tour (I left my camera battery charger in Costa Rica and it was being mailed to us at the time, so I don’t have that many pictures).
St. Paul's Cathedral, which didn't really have any significance to me until the guide told us that this is where Prince Charles & Princes Diana were married!
About halfway through the tour, Kai was ready to be done...see how excited he was when we got off the bus to see another sight?! ;)
This is us at Buckingham Palace...not sure why we didn't take one with the actual Palace in the background, but I guess we will just have to make a trip back there again before we leave!
This one is for my bad girls...apparently they have a pub called Bag O' Nails? I don't know who came up with that name...maybe they do nails there too? Or you can buy a bag? Hahaha!
Kai was so happy when the tour ended and they took us back to Pepperdine!
