Exactly one week from today I will BE in London, England. I'm leaving on Thursday and arriving on Friday. That consists of a flight to Boston first with a 7 hour layover, then finally my flight to London. 7 hours. What do I do in a airport for 7 hours? I've had pretty lengthy layover's before while alone, but not 7 hours. If anyone has any suggestions PLEASE throw them my way.
So the friend I'm going to visit, Emily, has started planning our adventures while I am there. I'm so excited! I gave her a rough draft list of things I wanted to do/see while there.
-British museum (maybe)
-west minister abbey
-west minister hall
-tower of London
-st Paul's cathedral
-London zoo... :)
-have afternoon tea somewhere
-go to a pub
-Camden lock market & east end
-shop at really cool places..
-have a picnic at a park
Purely just a rough draft. I will be there for 7 full days, so hopefully I have enough time to do as much as possible. We already have a small trip planned to Bath, England! We are going to spend two nights there! One night will be in a hostel and the other in a bed and breakfast. We are kind of cheating at the hostel. Instead of a dormitory room, we got a twin! Here are a few pictures of Bath:

|Thermae Spa! We are going to spend a day here!|
I'm so excited! Bath was home to Jane Austen as well, just fyi. That will be cool to see! I should read some Jane Austen on the way to get myself in the mood. Possibly cheesy, yes.
This is irrelevant but I have to say it. I've been looking around for new outfits because I feel like I should be stylin when I go to London. Emily said she hardly ever see's people wear jeans. WHAT!? I wear jeans DAILY. That will be interesting. But oh well I guess, I'm just being a girl.
SIDE NOTE: While I am in London I am not sure how often or if I will able to post at all! I am looking for a couple guest bloggers to keep my blog moving! If you are interested please let me know!
