Grace’s Amazing Three Day London Adventure


Hello Readers!

I apologize for the gap in posts and by the way Miss Moxie did reach the 250 votes goal for the Chase small business grant. We’ve moved onto the next room and I will keep you updated on our progress.  I’m leaving England to return to Florida in two weeks and I realized I still hadn’t posted about my London adventure. Now in May my room mate from college, Hannah came to see me in England and I took her to London.

We only had three days in the capital and I wanted to make sure Hannah got the most out of it so I had it planned out very well. I kept track of everything we did and if you happen to be traveling to London for the Olympics or just for holiday, perhaps this breakdown of our little adventure will show you just how much of London you can get around in a few days, well really one full day and two half days because our coaches got in/left around 3pm on Day 1 and Day 2 so that makes it even more impressive 🙂

Day 1: 3pm – 5:30pm – Exploring the British Museum

8:30pm-? Dinner at Edgeware Road Kebab place and travel back to hostel by Waterloo

As you can see we had a crazy couple of days and although it was tiring, it was amazing. So if you only have a few days in London don’t despair, you can get a heck of a lot done 🙂 I’ll be back in London with my sister for the Olympic Opening Ceremony so I’m rather excited about that. Hopefully I’ll have time to write something about that too.

Have you been on a short visit to London? Were you able to do this much or more? Where did you go? Let me know because I’m always interested in the travels of others. I hope this blog gave you some inspiration and gave a glimpse into the crazy fun you can have in England’s capital. Oh and the photo included in this post is one I took on the trip with Hannah,

Until next time, be strong, stay blessed and never give up,
God Bless,
