London and the English Countryside
Posted on 06/30/2013 @ 05:22 PM
After a long, sleepless night of travels across the ocean, we arrived bright and early in London! Everyone was excited as we started our city tour and saw our first sites, Westminster Abbey and the London Bridge! As we walked across the bridge the group started taking pictures that will soon fill everyone's Facebook pages. The other side of the bridge was the London Tower, filled with the Crown Jewels.
After lunch on our own at the market we were excited to have our first group dinner together, an authentic British fish and chips experience. Exhausted from our first full day, we spent the rest of our night bonding as a group at hotel. Day one in London and no rain! We were excited to see what the rest of the trip would bring!
Thursday morning started off with a tour of the English countryside en route to Dover. It was great to see the beautiful rolling hills and small towns; a contrast to the double decker buses and the red phone booths of London. We arrived in Dover with a beautiful castle in front of us. Most of the kids agreed it looked exactly like the one in Shrek, just not animated!
We toured the Dover Castle, and the caves that were used during both World Wars. Looking across the English Channel we could see our next big destination, France. But first we had a big night ahead, the theatre in London. We walked to the theatre to see "Let It Be." The energy, dancing, and singing made it feel as though you were at a live Beatles concert!
Cheers and Shabbat Shalom from London!
