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.
