As I get ready to watch the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, I started going through my pictures of my last visit to London 🙂
This is the Hotel we stayed at! It was a perfect location because we were only two blocks from Trafalgar Square. I also want to add that their morning breakfast was delicious!! I woke up excited every day because I knew I was going to have their breakfast 🙂 Once you head out, if you kept walking strait you reach Buckingham Palace! You could even see the Palace from a distance.
My friends made me the tour leader because I was more familiar with the city. I told my friends that walking in London is always fun because you enjoy the scenery and don’t even realize you are walking long distances. You see all these cute little shops and walk in and end up staying for a while. All the small coffee shops and bakeries are just so tempting 🙂
Here is the address: 372 Strand, London WC2R 0JJ, United Kingdom
I highly recommend this Hotel! It has great service, a great location, and amazing food! Here is their website: Strand Hotel
Walking to Buckingham Palace. If you get the chance, I suggest you should take the tour inside the Palace! You get to see so many royal rooms, halls, the ballroom, the queen’s dresses, and the throne room! You also get to see the stables and Queen Elizabeth’s carriage. You also get to see the carriage that took Princess Diana to St. Paul’s Cathedra for her wedding 🙂
We got so happy because the sun started to come out! London looks really beautiful with the sun 🙂 Most of the times that I have gone, it was cloudy. This was one of the first times that I saw the sun.
What is London without trying their famous Fish and Chips! They have them all over the city so you can’t miss them.
And off we went to visit Cambridge University!
We went on a boat ride to have a tour of the University! It was such a relaxing ride 🙂 we had a tour guide who was telling us all about the school.
After a couple of hours of explporing this enchanting place, it was time for some lunch! We had lunch at this restaurant called La Raza. It was authentic Spanish..in England! If you ever visit Cambridge, I highly recommend this place. The table is set for big groups so you can all be sharing and having a great time. Their Spanish bread was absolutely delicious! You will leave wanting more!! Here is their website in case you want to read more about it: http://www.laraza.co.uk/
After a fun filled day at Cambride, it was time to head back home. We didn’t want to leave. I wish I could of gone to this University. Well then again, it’s never to late to go back for my Masters 😉 hmm..
