Nerds Abroad

Friday, July 25, 2014

So, while in London, we definitely geeked out. We went on the Harry Potter Studio Tour (WHICH WAS AMAZING.) located a Tardis (outside of Earl's Court Station) visited Baker St. (We wanted to be all Austenesque and visit Bath, or Downton Abbey it up and see Highclere Castle, but weren't able to sadly.) 

Then, the touristy sights, Big Ben, Parliament, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and our first visit to Buckingham Palace. 

Big Ben is seriously gorgeous and enormous up close. I could have stood there staring for ages.

My sister Val is obsessed with bagels. Don't know why, but I approve. We had them on every continent we visited.

London Calling- Day One

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Unfortunately, our first day in London wasn't super productive as Olivia's flight had gotten all messed up and she arrived a day late. We didn't want to do any of the super big sights without her, so we had sort of a chill day while we awaited her arrival in the evening at Heathrow. We did manage to fit in a visit to Baker St. (Sherlock fans?!) and stopped off at the Picadilly Circus area. And, since it was our first day, all the charm of the red double deckers, phone booths and sleek black cabs were enough to entertain. (Let's be honest, I never was tired of those things!) 

In tribute to our mom- we popped in this Beatles store to purchase some postcards. 

See?! Pure charm!

The next few photos are from our little upper room we stayed at (via Airbnb) in Harrow. (about thirty minutes on the tube/overground from Central London)
