Hello Everyone!! Sorry I haven’t been posting very much, I had midterms and then spring break. I thought I would write a post to tell you all about my spring break! My friends and I went to London, Paris, and Amsterdam.
London was our first stop. I went to London the summer after I graduated high school, and I fell in love. It is one of my favorite places to be, so I was very excited to get to go back. On the first day we went shopping at Primark, if you don’t know what that is it is kind of like a Forever 21, but I personally like it better. We also went to see Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, walked around Hyde Park, and went to see the Parent Trap House. We went to a chain restaurant called Nandos for dinner. If you haven’t been I would definitely recommend, it is amazing. After dinner we went to a restaurant/bar called Sky Pod Bar that is on the top of a building, so you can see all of London. The view was breathtaking, I would definitely recommend visiting. The next day we went on the London Eye and went to Camden Market where we ate at Cereal Killer Cafe. The last day we went to the Tower of London and Abbey Road.
Our second stop was Paris. I had never been to Paris, so I was really excited to get to see the Eiffel Tower. The first day did a hop on hop off buss around the city. We went into the Louvre museum, where we saw the Mona Lisa. We also went and took tons of pictures by the Eiffel Tower. The second day we were there, we took the train to go see Versailles. If you are going to go visit, make sure you get there early. We were standing on line for 2 hours in the cold and rain, and we had bought our tickets online the night before.
Our last stop was Amsterdam. My friends and I actually met up with a friend who is studying abroad there, so it was nice to have her show us around. The first day it was raining, so we just walked around. We went to the Moco Museum, which displays Banksy artwork, it was a really cool and fun museum. We went to Food Hollen for dinner, which is like a food market with different types of food stands, similar to Camden Market. The next day we went to the Heineken Experience, The Fault in our Stars bench, and the Iamsterdam sign.
