It’s been a while since my last post, but here I am. I honestly can’t believe its May already. Honestly, this semester has gone by WAY TOO FAST. Well, given the fact that London was the last site to give us spring break let’s get right into it.
Although everyone was out of the country for spring break, I had a couple of friends come over from high school and we decided to spend the break in different parts of the UK. Since the weather was quite sunny during the break, which is an unusual occurrence, we decided to visit Brighton. It was basically a European Coney Island: the shore, a mini adventure park and a board walk with everything 6-year old me would love. It was honestly one of the most enjoyable trips I’ve had in the UK. And it was only an hour away from London by train!
For the rest of the trip, I embraced the tour guide within me and we went to a couple of local spots around London that I’ve personally enjoyed before. First stop: Covent Garden for afternoon tea at Sketch, the Apple Market (they don't actually sell apples here) and finally a play (The play that went wrong; I highly recommend for a good laugh). Then for the next couple of days, we chose quite iconic areas of London to visit: Camden Market, Hyde Park, Madame Taussad’s and more touristy locations. Then for a very last excursion, we visited Birmingham to see Cadbury World (the equivalent of Hershey world), but we realized that we’re the only group of people above the age of five! So yeah, that ended quite fast. Moral of the story: there’s tons of things to do even within the UK!
