London Day One!
Got up early, coz I could not wait to take on this town!! Even the sun was out to welcome me! First stop was Green Park - I took the tube (that's what we Londoner's call the underground train) for two stops and came out at Green Park -- Established in 1668 -- Some of the trees have to date back to then!
I had to look up what type of tree this was... It's a plane tree!
Then onto Buckingham Palace!
From here I was just walking around and I found St James Park that was built by King Henry VIII in 1536! My heart!! I know now what to plant in my new gardens!
From here I was first in line to enter Churchill's War Room -- It's the underground WWII headquarters of Churchill's war effort -- Being the history nerd that I am... I spent two hours wondering around this underground city! Then I got really hungry and wanted to eat at an outdoor cafe by the Thames RIver, so I took a LONG walk there and passed.....
After Lunch and a long walk I ended up at Westminster Abbey! Sorry no picture of the inside -- it's not allowed... but I did have afternoon tea there!
After all this I took a long walk to the tube and then back to my hotel!! Happy - Tired -- VERY HAPPY!! This was a great day!!
