Euro Trip Day 1

Let the backpacking begin!

We arrived in London early Saturday afternoon. Lauren and I made it through customs and found Christina waiting outside the baggage claim. She came in on a different flight and we were very nervous that we wouldn’t be able to find each other since we had no means of communication. When we saw Christina we ran to each other, hugged and squealed. It was straight out of a movie.

Then the adventure really began. We navigated the tube system to our first (and WORST) hostel in Hyde Park. We checked in, chose beds, dropped off our stuff and hit the road. We spent all day wandering and exploring London. In addition to all the lovely, wonderful, random things that we saw while aimlessly wandering the streets we saw a bunch of well-known sites and even some Olympics!

Check out the video below to see pictures of the first day. Highlights include:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Olympic Speed Walking
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Horse Guards Parade
  • Big Ben
  • Houses of Parliament
  • Westminster Abbey
  • English pub

Enjoy!
