British Adventure continues!
On Day 3 in London we first hit Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards. This tradition takes 45 minutes and is good entertainment for the tourists..or just me. I had one too many cups of coffee and really got into it. With the music playing I started dancing and yelling that the queen was coming. Everyone kept looking in the direction I was pointing at so it was a lot of fun to joke around and enjoy this sight. In the picture above I am pointing at the balcony where William & Kate kissed when they got married just four years ago. Shortly after we made our way to Windsor Castle (royal residence) where the queen likes to spend her weekends. The castle is open to tourists to view rooms and learn the history behind the castle. We enjoyed teasing the guard outside the castle and hoped he would smile or say something but he remained professional and ignored us. After touring the castle we went to the London bridge. From there our professor gave us the freedom of going to Oxford Circus for shopping. This street is known for its high scale brands and fun shops. We spent most of our time at Liberty. Liberty is a wide range luxury department store that contains floral and graphic prints of all major brands. The store is beautiful as well as the print seen on all their items. I regret not buying the pair of Nike shoes I wanted with the liberty print so this just gives me another reason to go back to London and get them!
