Hello again, England!!!!

I have missed England since the day I left behind Yorkshire and the beautiful moors...so when I was regaling Misha with how utterly amazing the Broadway musical Wicked is, she said "Let's go see it!" So we did! We plotted out a mom's weekend to London, centered on seeing the show and the historical sights of London. Kristin made mention that it was a pity we were planning it for Mother's Day weekend, as she wouldn't be back from her trip to the States until a couple days after, so we planned it for the weekend after, instead, so we could all three go. It was a Girl's Weekend Out!

We planned to fly out early Friday morning, but then changed our plans to Thursday night instead, as Misha brought up the point of benefiting from getting in the night before and resting up from our travel before hitting the sights.

 GOOD-BYE, GERMANY!


 THE NORTHERN COAST OF GERMANY, NETHERLANDS, OR BELGIUM...I'M NOT SURE WHICH...


 WINDMILLS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NORTH SEA/ENGLISH CHANNEL


HELLO, ENGLAND!!!


It was great to be back in the UK (I've been to Edinburgh once and had a weekend in Yorkshire...this was the first time to London for all three of us!), and odd to not have to ask the shop owners if they spoke English all of the time! LOL (Although, while we were there, we heard more French, Italian and German than English! LOL) 

The first night, we wandered around a little bit after checking in to our hotel, and found dinner at a cute little place shortly before it closed, and we all enjoyed some pies. :) I got a chicken and mushroom one, myself, with a hefty side helping of chips (fries)! 

MY DINNER FROM THE FIRST NIGHT IN LONDON!

It was a very good thing Misha suggested an extra night in London, because I can't imagine spending Friday the way we did right after flying in!

TO BE CONTINUED.....
