At the end of October/beginning of November, we had a long weekend free, so I decided to use it and visit my cousin in London, England.  I was really excited – London is one of those places I’ve always wanted to go.  I spent the first day sight-seeing with Ruthie (my cousin) and saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.  The second day, I did some sight-seeing by myself; I went to the Sherlock Holmes Museum (yeah man), the British Library, Shakespeare’s Globe, and ended the day with riding the London Eye.  My third day I spent walking around and shopping in Camden Town with Ruthie, her husband Ceril, and her two boys, Tibault and Aramis, and my last morning, I got to see Windsor Palace.  It was all so amazing – I really enjoyed staying with Ruthie and her family (it’s been a while since I’ve seen them and her kids are adorable rascals!)  I’m not sure what was my favorite sight because I loved them all, but one of my favorite things I did was taking my picture in a red telephone booth, haha!  And there are still so many things I would’ve liked to have done or seen – I’ll definitely have to come back some day.
