Winged Victory at the Louvre. We also saw the Mona Lisa, but a photo just can not do it justice, and the Venus de Milo.
Notre Dame. You can actually go up into the bell towers, but we ran out of time and had to catch our train back to London.
LONDON:Leeds Castle in Kent
Peacock at Leeds Castle. I swear this thing was following me all around the grounds.
Tower of London. This is actually only the oldest part of what people call the Tower of London. It's called the White Tower because it was whitewashed and the Norman Tower I believe because of the time it was built.
Big Ben and the London Eye in the background, which is across the river. And in reality, Big Ben is only the name of the large bell in the tower.
The Garden Walk in Hyde Park. This was so beautiful. I was very impressed by London's parks in both size and beauty.
Green Park just across from Buckingham Palace. (ETA: Sorry, we were meandering that day and one park leads to another. I just looked at a map and do believe this is in St. James Park.)
From a bridge in Green Park with Buckingham Palace in the distance. (ETA: Also St. James Park I believe.)
So, I guess there were more highlights than I had thought at first. Hope you enjoyed the little overview. I always dreamed about a trip like this in the true sense of a dream. I never thought I'd get to go. It was stressful, not knowing how to get around and not wanting to pay for taxis. I was starting to think I was going to have to sleep on the streets of Paris our first night, because we couldn't find our hotel. LOL. But we figured it out and actually crammed in all of the creme de la creme that we wanted to see.
Thanks for visiting.
