I’m getting so excited! Only 137 days until we jet off to Europe again. And I’m thrilled! It has been a busy week on the planning front. I have figured out the plan of attack for London, bought our London Passes, booked our Eurostar tickets to Brussels and planned day trips from Brussels with Eric’s cousin Elizabeth.
Here are a few of the things we are going to see in London:
Houses of Parliament & Big Ben
Buckingham Palace & changing of the guard
Hyde Park & Princess Diana Memorial
St. Paul's Cathedral
Doctor Who Police Box on Earl's Court Road (outside station)
Tower of London (Crown Jewels!)
Tower Bridge Exhibition
Leadenhall Market (Harry Potter’s Diagonal Alley)
River cruise to Greenwich
Royal Observatory Greenwich
The Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 3/4
Also we would like to include a race, the Summer Breeze 10K near Wimbledon.
As far as Brussels, we are planning day trips to Monschau, Germany, Aachen, Netherlands and Maastricht, Netherlands:
And a day trip to Ghent:
It is turning into a very interesting trip.
