London and the Cotswolds

Last Saturday, I went to London for the first time! I spent the day there, and saw Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Tower Bridge. I spent most of the day walking along the River Thames. Hopefully, I will be able to return to London several more times, since there is a lot that I didn’t see! Here are some pictures from the trip:

Yesterday, my friend Liza and I traveled to the Cotswolds, an area of England full of small villages. We went to Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold. Both the towns had a lot of very nice old buildings, and lots of tea shops and things. I had crumpets for the first time, and got to see the inn that the Prancing Pony in the Lord of the Rings is based on!

I’ve also been on two more hikes around England in the past few weeks! I saw the house C.S.Lewis lived in when he was in Oxford. Here are some pictures from those, and also from Oxford (read the captions!).

    Christine – I love all the photos! I saw many of the same things that you did when I was in London (well, not the London Eye because it was around then!). I also went to the Cotswolds. I had never heard of that area, but my friend with whom I was traveling really wanted to go, and I loved it. Looks like you’re having a wonderful time!
