The excitement built in my being, creating the feeling that I was going to pop. I looked over at my husband and two best friends and knew this was going to be the best vacation ever. We landed in London and I could already tell how beautiful the city looked. I had so many places I wanted to explore, I didn’t know where to start. In the midst of thinking about every attraction in London, I failed to remember the beautiful hotel we were staying at. The Grand Royale London Hyde Park , it was absolutely breathtaking. We received wonderful room service, not to mention, how romantic the rooms were. My two best friends got engaged right in there in one of the rooms! It was beautiful, he lit candles and made the place look even better. Which, I didn’t think was possible.
For celebrations, we visited Leicester Square to enjoy the night life. Of course, partying wasn’t the only thing we would be doing during our time in the United Kingdom. While in London, we made sure to see Buckingham Palace. Ever since I was a little girl, it was a dream of mine. It was a dream come true! As we continued to explore England, we made a stop in Winchester to set our eyes on the Winchester Castle. It reminded me of Harry Potter, in a way. It was almost as though the childhood me came alive again.
Finally, it was time to take our flight to Scotland. Call me superstitious, but I had to take a look at Loch Ness. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and hey, I could have seen something if I looked hard enough! While in Scotland, we visited the capital city of Edinburgh. The Royal Yacht Britannia was something out of a storybook. My friends, my husband and I took a tour of the city to absorb more of what it had to offer. We drove through the Edinburgh Old Town to see several small stores that were booming with business.
Spending time in Scotland and England were some of the best times I’ve ever experienced. I saw a part of the world I had never seen before. In some parts, I had never seen such beauty in a city or country. If offered, I would move to London, England in a heartbeat. The United Kingdom is a wonderful place with booming cities and sight seeing all around. I love to explore and view new things, especially with the people I love. While I was away from home, I never missed it. As crazy as it sounds, I was so consumed with everything I was surrounded by, I felt like never leaving.
When it all comes down to it, spending time in the United Kingdom was very beneficial for me. As much as I love my country, seeing a different country’s landmarks and countryside was so refreshing. Traveling has always been one of my favorite hobbies. After visiting the United Kingdom, my love for this hobby has grown even more. It opens your eyes to the beauty you don’t see everyday.
