    Exploring and finding Flowers

    March 3 in the United Kingdom

    The snow has gone and we've reached above 0 temperatures. I think winter is over and spring on its way.
    So I lost my snow day excuse for the gym, feel good for finally going this morning.
    Spent the afternoon exploring around town. I forget that this cities history goes back so far. From old burial grounds to executions, it's all here.
    I did come in to check out a daffodil display I heard about in Paternoster square. It was smaller than expected but was beautiful and for a great cause.

    Now there's more ciders to taste.

    April 26 in the United Kingdom

    This cathedral is often seen in movies. Some of those movies include Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Thor: The Dark World, Sherlock Holmes, London Has Fallen, and Marry Poppins. Also, this is where Prince Charles married Lady Diana.

    London, England

    September 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    St Paul's Cathedral has stood for over 1400 years, the present Cathedral was designed by Christopher Wren. The inside of the Cathedral is magnificent, although we were unable to take photos. We managed to climb the 528 steps, a height of 85 metres, from the Cathedral floor to the Golden Gallery. The Golden Gallery allows you to walk around the outside of the top of the Cathedral, from there you have a great view of London in all directions, as long as the weather holds. Then it was off to Westminster Abbey, again no photos allowed. We did the audio tour here as well. To me it was a little morbid as the whole church is one big mausoleum for the kings and queens who died up until 1760. It is also where all the coronations of the monarch have taken place and a number of weddings.

    We then walked past St James Park on our way to the Horse Guards Parade before seeing 10 Downing Street. You can't get close to No. 10 as it is barricaded and heavily guarded. We again visited Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus for a little shopping and lastly Leicester Square to see M & M World and Lego World before having an earlier day.

    Day 7: London, England

    July 13, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    We started our day taking the tube to the museum of London and looking through the history of the city. It was a really nice museum save the groups of middle schoolers we had to dodge through. We walked down through the streets to see the busy business section and passed by the Royal Stock Market. I got distracted with a perfume shop -Penhaligions- which you can't find in the states. As usual, the shopkeeper asked where I was from. I say the states, but they want to know the state, which I think I've said a different state every time cause I don't really have a home now. We then walked passed old Bond Street and then to the Victorian covered market Leadenhall where we had lunch and watched all the busy businessmen pass us by. I realized more people were looking at me than usual and caught on that I was using my hands to eat my pizza and they use their forks and knives to cut it up and eat with a fork. They don't pre-cut your pizza for you but they did give us a pizza cutter because they knew we were Americans. As hard as you might try, it's so difficult not to automatically be spotted as an American and that's not a bad thing, just a reminder that our cultures are still very different. They looked on at me with curiosity and I proudly stuffed my face with the extreme efficiency of a folded slice of pizza. We jumped back on the tube at Liverpool to the flat to change into warmer clothing before going back out to tube to the south bank to grab a coffee, see the Tate Modern building before jumping on the circular river cruise on the Thames from Bankside Pier. It was a 50 minute tour on the top of a cruise boat that took us to Westminster and then over to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. It's a great way to see all the main sites from the comfort of a boat. We got off the boat and walked across Millenium foot bridge to St. Paul's cathedral for their evensong service at 5 which unbeknownest to us at the time was a special service done once a year with the patron of the church Duchess of Gloucester in attendance. We stayed for it's whole service which is Anglican with their all-boys choir. It was quite lovely hearing them sing and even more interesting hearing their sermon and seeing their rituals. After that we went back to our flat for dinner, laundry and to watch the BBC news with Theresa May becoming the new Prime Minister today with David Cameron resigning after the UK voted to leave the EU.Read more

    St. Paul's Cathedral

    October 10, 2015 in the United Kingdom

    An amazing cathedral with so much history! They won't let you take pictures inside, but you can buy pictures of the inside at the gift shop. Can you say "money changers"? The organist was practicing while we were there What a sound! Our tour guide, Doug was outstanding.

    Gegen Mittag sind wir mit Mamas Freundin Wendy verabredet, die uns durch die St. Pauls Cathedral führt. Wir haben Glück und können sogar die Whispering Gallery besuchen, die sonst für Besucher geschlossen ist. Von dort kann man das Innere der Kirche überblicken.

    Service at St Pauls

    August 29, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Fantastic day today. I started at the Museum of London. Unsurprisingly it gives a great history of London. I spent an hour there going from pre Romans up to the Victorians before going just up the road to St Paul's.

    I attended the Sung Eucharist service and it was one of the highlights of my trip so far. It was certainly a different style of worship to what I am used to. The Cathedral is magnificent, very different to Westminster Abbey. As I was there for a service I didn't take any photos inside.

    The place is large that the voices of the Deacon and Canon echoed throughout the Cathedral as they spoke.
    The majority of the service was sung by the choir, the usual choir is on holiday so it was a visiting choir we heard.
    We were handed an order of service as we entered so I could follow along.
    You'll be please to know that I didn't repeat the faux pas of years ago when instead of offering the greeting of "peace be with you" I was telling people "pleased to meet you"
    Communion was held at the end of the service. I could not bring myself to drink from the communion cup, instead I dipped my wafer in. I know that the cup probably held less germs that what I picked up during the rest of my travels today but I still couldn't do it.

    After the service I returned to the museum to follow London up to the present day.
    I then went to Harrods, more about that later and finished the day sitting in Hyde Park watching the world go by. I didn't see much of the park but what I did see was lovely.

    London, United Kingdom

    May 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Hop-on, Hop-off bus today and ticked off some serious must-see sights! Started early with coffee and a walk in Hyde Park. It was a foggy morning which was really pretty. One of our favourite spots in London. Next we headed to the city to Buckingham Palace, Wellington Arch, Westminster Abbey, Elizabeth Towers (Big Ben), The Tower of London, and the Tower Bridge. It was great to tick so many boxes and get to see so many of London's biggest attractions in one day.Read more

  • Day13

    St Paul's Cathedral

    May 5, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    The last day for sightseeing in UK. We went to St. Paul's Cathedral Princess Diana had her wedding held there.

    St. Paul's Cathedral is probably the only Cathedral in Britain with a dome. We climed up the dome to the top of the cathedral. The stairs were narrow and steep, but it paid off to climb upwards - the view from above was absolutely breathtaking.

    We walked towards Trafalgar Square and Big Ben after the visit of the cathedral - exactly the opposite route where we started our trip in UK. A fairly nice way to bring the holiday to a close.

    The flight fomorrow will be 2.15 pm.
