It’s been a long and exciting few days! After a teary goodbye with my parents at the airport, I boarded my flight. Seven and a half hours later, we had landed at Gatwick Airport in London, England on a rare and beautiful sunny day.
Since Ryan and I planned our layover to be a full eight hours, we were able to head out into the city and see some of the most iconic sites including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the London Eye. No Wills and Kate in site unfortunately but still a good day! I was immediately astounded by how huge these buildings were considering their age and presence in a country where everything is so close together.
Finally, we stopped for a traditional fish and chips lunch before catching our train back to Gatwick. My friend Lucy would never forgive me if I didn’t take a photo- so here you go!
Overall it was an awesome day. Next stop, Cork!
Peace, love and history.
