London

Okay London was a compromise and a surprise. I didn’t really want to go anywhere cold but I was limited and short on time. I knew Elise would love to visit the making of Harry Potter and London would keep us busy for 9 days. 

Wheels up first stop Doha on the way to London.

She still has no idea where we are going. I gave her 3 clues. 

1. It’s cold 2. It stars with L 3. It’s in Europe. None of those were very helpful to my Dyslexic non map understanding daughter. 

Wheels up headed to London via Doha

SShe finally listens to the captain and hears him say London and she’s excited. Excited would be an understatement. 

Bonus: we had the row to ourselves. 

Day 1

Real talk I to needed to regroup from the flight, immigration and checking in

Day 2

We headed out. First stop M&M world.

Next the Lego Store 

Big Ben

The aquarium…..once you’ve been to the Atlanta aquarium the rest are crap and not worth the money

And Bubba Gump Shrimp

Day 3

THE Making of Harry Potter

To say I haven’t read the books or watched the movies I truly enjoyed and would come back again. 

Maybe when Elise finishes rhe series we’ll come back. 

Day 4 and 5

I’m old and I needed to regroup. We hung out at the mall and she caught up on school work. 

Day 6 

London Bridge…yep walked across it and sang London Bridge is falling down in my head as I walked.

Tower Bridge 

Tower of London

Buckingham Palace

Day 7

Found us at the library. Not even the famous library just a local library branch. Lol. I love this kid and her love for books.

Day 8

Our last day touring because I’m tired and my wallet needs a break. 

Imperial War Museum 

From world War 1 to war on terror through the British eye. I couldn’t take as many pictures as I wanted because I was in awe. There was a room for the Holocaust but it was suggested for 14 and older. Elise would not have been able to handle it. 

A piece of the Berlin Wall

From the North tower 9-11


Science museum 

This girl can’t stand science but she loved this museum. Sorry it’s the only picture I took. 

Victoria and Albert Museum 

We didn’t go all the way through by this point I was done and ready to go. 

London I will be back.
