Alright, on with the show! :)

As mentioned in the previous post, we went exploring around after we got unpacked and a little rested!

Our hotel was in a great location; right down the road from Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The London Eye, etc. We were also within a block to Victoria Underground station (which once figured out was a great means of transportation---Orlando needs one!)

Right around the corner from the hotel was this building, which housed an LA Fitness! Just fascinating because the LA Fitnesses around here certainly don't look like that!

We decided to continue down the road to try and find Big Ben, Parlaiment, and The London Eye! We could see the top of the London Eye, so we knew we were headed in the right direction! This was also our first sighting of a double decker bus!!!!

About a half mile down the road, we found everything we were looking for!

It was amazing to see these structures in person! They always appeared amazing through photographs, but nothing compares to actually seeing them in person! The architectural details, the size, just everything was breath taking!

Once we were through taking pictures here, we started to walk back an explore some more! We stumbled across some beautiful gardens and then Buckingham Palace!!

More to come soon!
