London Calling!

For the people who really know me, they are well aware that I am a huge Anglophile. It all began when I was 10 years old and read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. From that point forward, my love/obsession with England only increased. When I knew for sure that I would be doing BEDA in Spain, one of the first things I told my friends and family was that I would finally be able to travel to London. Two weeks ago, during the puente, I was finally able to travel to this wondrous place!

Upon arriving, the first thing I did was take the metro to my hotel so that I could drop off my bags. The metro for my hotel was King’s Cross Station (Yes, as in the King’s Cross from Harry Potter) so you can imagine my excitement. I had found out a few days before that there are Chipotles in London, so my first order of business was finding the Chipotle closest to me. I think that when I walked in through the door of Chipotle I could faintly hear the angels singing. Here is a picture of my bowl before and after:

Seriously, no one should ever doubt my love of Chipotle.

The rest of my trip consisted of seeing the typical tourist sights like Big Ben, the London Eye, apartment 221B, and Platform 9 3/4! Here are some pictures of my marvelous London adventure:

^This was the incredible view from my apartment…I could even see King’s Cross Station!

My london adventure was AMAZING!!! Right now I’m currently back in Maryland celebrating the holidays with my family. I thought it would be odd to be back at home, and in some aspects it has been, but there really is no place like home. I know that leaving again in January is going to be harder for me than it was when I left at the end of August. I just have to remember how much I have been enjoying my Spain experience to keep me motivated and keep the homesickness at bay.

¡Feliz Navidad! I hope you are all having a wonderful time during the holidays! I’ll be posting again soon.

¡Hasta Pronto!
