I spent our second day break in Italy with a bunch of other people I’m studying with over here in London. We split the trip into three different cities, Rome, Florence and Venice, and I was super excited about the trip since I’ve never been to Italy before! The first day in Rome I walked around the city but I didn’t pay to go into any attractions because I am planning on going back after this semester ends. My friend and I started our day at the Vatican and then walked all the way over to the ancient part of Rome. We got to see the Vatican, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Ministry of Culture & Heritage, Trajan’s Column, Trajan’s market and the Colosseum.
A few weeks ago, two friends and I flew up to Edinburgh for the weekend! We stayed in the Budget Backpackers hostel which was right in the center of the old part of the city, so we were within walking distance of everything. The weather was a bit dreary but I had a wonderful time and the entire trip was just so relaxing and a much needed break from the hustle & bustle of London!
I’m still working on my post about my trip to Greenwich last week (whoops!) but in the mean time I figured I’d write about my visit to the British Museum yesterday. I met up with one of my friends from Wake, Steph, and we picked up lunch from Pret and ate in front of the museum.
On Sunday morning, my dad and I took a cab from his hotel near Regent’s Park to his new hotel near Green Park. Once he checked in and everything, we headed over to a little café before our walking tour through the Kensington area. For my second breakfast I had English Breakfast Blend tea and a scone with strawberry jam. I still haven’t tried clotted cream and I feel that’s a pretty necessary component to tea time here!
